A Gungahlin man has ended the working week on a high after discovering he’d picked up a $100,000 win in the latest Lucky Lotteries draw.

The man in his 50’s received the call on Friday afternoon.

“That’s phenomenal” He laughed.

“I was just saying to a work colleague that I had won $17 in Lotto the other day – I was chuffed with that.”

However, the surprises aren’t set to stop there.

When asked how he intended to enjoy his prize, the man said he had one important person to tell first before making any concrete plans.

“I will definitely go out for a nice meal tonight to celebrate and break the news to my wife. I am sure she will have plenty ideas of how to spend it.”


“It’s certainly come at a good time. We are buying a new home, so it will put a nice dent in the mortgage.” He added.
