A Kirribilli pensioner will upgrade his old model flip phone after scoring more than $100,000 in last week’s Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.
The resident won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10799, drawn Tuesday 3 October 2023.
The man said he will upgrade his old model phone, which cost just $15.
In another stroke of luck, he also bagged $2000 in consolation prizes, bolstering his total bounty to $102,000.
Officials from The Lott were unable to reach the mystery man until he checked his ticket Friday morning.
“Oh my!” the winning man told a Lottery spokesperson in response to the win, this is extraordinary!”
The man purchased the ticket at the Miller St Oval news agency.
“I’ll be able to buy a new phone! One of those fancy touchscreen ones.”
“It’s remarkable to see the draw offers in the newsagency but the fact I’ve won them is something else!
“It’ll make a nice summer and I’ll be eating well!
