Islington resident picks up $200,000 Lucky Lotteries win

One lucky Islington resident is celebrating today a life-changing win of $200,000.

The prize came after the local woman purchased a ticket in the recent Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

With $200,000 to her name, the Novocastrian is gearing up for a well-deserved and blissful retirement and is ready to embark on new adventures and enjoy the fruits of her fortunate win.

The unsuspecting winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was pleasantly surprised when officials from The Lott delivered the life-altering news during a winning phone call.

“Oh, my heavens! Thank you very much!” she cheered.

“That is amazing news. Two hundred thousand dollars. Wow – That’s pretty special.

“I’m at retirement age, but I’ve had to keep working. This might just be the trigger to finally let me retire.

“Thank you. Thank you. You’ve completely made my day.

“The most I’ve ever won was $800 but that was years ago now.

“You must have the best job in the world breaking such amazing news to people like me. How wonderful.

“I can’t wait to tell my friends so we can celebrate.”

Her entry of one random number was purchased via The Lott app.
