Toowoomba resident kicks off 2019 with $200,000 lotto win

ONE lucky Toowoomba resident is entering the new year $200,000 richer after a Lucky Lotteries win on Friday.

The Queenslander won the guaranteed 1st Prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1191, drawn Friday 4 January 2019.

A Golden Casket official had the pleasure of breaking the unexpected and exciting news to the player this afternoon.

But exactly how they plan to use their Lucky Lotteries windfall will forever remain a mystery as the winner has chosen to remain completely anonymous and celebrate in private.

The win comes as Australians snap up tickets for the $80 million Powerball draw next week, the second biggest in its history.

Golden Casket spokesperson Lauren Cooney said Lucky Lotteries 1st Prize winners often explained their good fortune gave them the opportunity to spoil themselves.

"From overseas holidays, to splurging on a boat or a new car, many of our Lucky Lotteries 1st Prize winners tell us the prize will be used for a special item, occasion or holiday they have always been dreaming of," she revealed.

"What a perfect way to kick off 2019 with their bank account about to balloon by $200,000! We have no doubt our Toowoomba winner will enjoy their prize!"

The winning entry of six random numbers was purchased online at thelott.com - Australia's official lotteries.

The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $34.84 million for draw 1192 while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is now $2.45 million for draw 10265.

Golden Casket customers can purchase a single ticket number into the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot for $2.20 and the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot for $5.50. For your chance to make today your 'Lucky' day, why not get your paws on a Lucky Lotteries ticket at your local Golden Casket outlet or online.
