It might be a cloudy, cold day in Bundanoon, but it's about to get a lot brighter for one player who just scored $200,000 in the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.
The elusive New South Wales player won first prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1497, drawn Tuesday August 11, 2020.
The ticket is unregistered, so officials from the Lott have no way of contacting the winner to break the news and must wait for them to come forward to claim their prize.
The winning entry was purchased at Bundanoon Newsagency, 7 Railway Avenue, Bundanoon.
Bundanoon Newsagencyowner Melissa Mcauliffe said she was elated for her mystery winner.
"How exciting! This is great news," she said.
"Bundanoon is a small town, so this is incredible news.
"It's been a tough year, with all of the bushfires and now with COVID-19, so I really hope this makes a difference to our winner's life.
"We will be sharing this news with our customers, and hoping the winner comes in so we can share in the winning moment.
"We have been telling all of our customers we were due for another major win, and now we can say we have had another!"
The Lott spokesperson Ally Ramsamy says she's on the hunt to find the mystery winner who just scored an incredible $200,000.
