The Southport man in his 40s scored the first prize in the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1547, which was drawn this morning.
The man was hard at work and oblivious to his good fortune until an official from The Lott contacted him a short time ago.

“Two hundred thousand dollars!?” he questioned when informed of the amazing news.
“Amazing! I’m stoked… I’m over the moon! My wife will be really happy!”
The lucky winner admitted he’s blown away, with the news still sinking in.
“I got a few seconds of shaking there and some goosebumps too. The chill went up my spine, but now I feel divine!”
The man said the money is going to make a huge difference to his family.
“We’ll put half on the mortgage and treat ourselves with the other half – go surfing, train, keep fit.
“It’s fantastic news – just in time for Christmas!”
The winning entry was purchased at the Lucky Dragon Newsagency at Australia Fair.
