A Moree great grandmother has cried tears of joy after discovering she is now $200,000 richer from yesterday’s Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

The northern New South Wales player won the guaranteed first prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1222, drawn on Wednesday, 13 February.

Speaking with a NSW Lotteries official this morning to confirm her win, the woman couldn’t contain her joy over the life-changing news.

“That is fantastic! It’s unbelievable. You have no idea what this can do for me,” the woman said.

“It’s just so beautiful, that’s unbelievable! I just can’t believe it. It’s so wonderful.

“I’ve got a whole tribe of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

“My whole family will love it. They’ll be so relieved.”

When asked how the emotional winner planned to spend her Lucky Lotteries windfall, she revealed it would go a long way to help renovate her home.

“My house is falling down around my ears and I can have it fixed now,” she said.

“I also desperately need a new car so it will really help! I’ve had it nearly 20 years so it’s time for a new one. That would be lovely.

“It would be such a big help! I don’t want to waste any of it!"

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry of one random number online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
