Lotto win sends Western Downs man into early retirement

A HARD-WORKING Dalby man has declared he is ready to put down his tools after this afternoon discovering he is $100,000 richer from the latest Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw. 

The man won the guaranteed 1st Prize in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10267 drawn Monday 21 January 2019 and takes home $100,000. 

As well as winning the coveted 1st Prize the stoked bloke also won a consolation prize of $1,000 boosting his total prize to $101,000. 

Speaking with a Golden Casket official this afternoon to confirm his win, the regular player couldn't contain his shock over the news of his good fortune and let out a few choice words of celebration. 

"Jesus! Thank you! That's f*&^ing awesome!" he exclaimed. 

"It has come at a good time for me I can tell you. 

"It's going to take the pressure off. I don't think I'll be working much longer. 

"I'll be able to pay a few bills and I've been thinking about retiring so that will be good. 

"I won't be able to sleep for the next few weeks now. You have no idea how excited I am!" 

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his entry of 7 random numbers online at thelott.com - Australia's official lotteries.
