Words by Nick Crockford

An Albany Creek man has been left dumbfounded and lost for words after hearing he had scored $200,000 in a Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

He held the winning entry in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw Monday but was unaware of his windfall until The Lott called with the incredible news.

“Thank you very much! That’s wonderful!” he laughed. “I don’t even know what to say. I’m flabbergasted!

“Wow! Sorry, my brain’s not working right now. My wife is here with me; she’s in shock right now, too. This is amazing.”

When asked how he planned to use his newfound treasure, the joyous man confessed he was too surprised to think of anything immediately.

“Honestly, I don’t even know right now,” he said. “You’ve caught me completely off guard!

“We are doing some travelling across Australia so perhaps we’ll do something nice while we’re away.”
