Lucky Gold Coaster $200k richer after jackpot win

You could say Beginner’s Luck played a part in the case of the latest Gold Coast lotto winner.

The lucky local is $200,000 richer, after taking home 1st Prize in Wednesday’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1240.

He was momentarily lost for words after hearing the life-changing news when a Golden Casket official called him on Thursday morning.


“Really?” he began to question. “Are you serious? You aren’t kidding me?”

“That’s fantastic! Thank you very much.”

The family man revealed he’d only purchased a few Lucky Lotteries entries before snagging the 1st Prize.

“I’ve been purchasing tickets into other lottery games for a couple of years but Lucky Lotteries caught my eye about a month ago,” he said.

“I honestly haven’t purchased many Lucky Lotteries entries before, I’ve only been playing for about a month and I’ve already won! I can’t believe it!

“I will put this aside for the future, to help set up my family.”
