St Georges Basin lottery purchase strikes gold

One St Georges Basin resident or visitor has won $200,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw – they just don’t know it yet.

The South Coast ticket holder won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1128, drawn on Thursday, September 13.

The winning entry is not registered to a Players Club Card so NSW Lotteries officials have no way of contacting the winner with the news and have to wait for them to come forward to claim their prize.

The winning ticket was bought at St Georges Basin Newsagency.

Newsagency co-owner Lyn Yenne said she was ecstatic to have sold a 1st Prize winning entry.

“Oh my god, that is so exciting,” she said.

“I can’t wait to unite the winner with their prize! I hope they come forward soon so they can enjoy their win.

“I am so glad we have made one of our customers $200,000 richer! I am so happy for them.

“We’ve sold a few big prizes in the past, but we were certainly due for another one.”
