A lucky Canberra woman is $100,000 richer after picking up a winning ticket during a visit to Wollongong.
It was another unregistered entry, which meant NSW Lotteries had to wait for the winner to come forward to claim her prize.
The woman, who wants to remain anonymous, bought the ticket from Keira Street Newsagency in Wollongong.
“I only buy Lucky Lotteries tickets because my nanna and her sister used to buy them as young women when the game was first launched. They’ve since passed away but it’s a family tradition,” she said.
“It’s come at a good time and it will just go straight onto the mortgage!”
Keira Street Newsagency owner Liming Guo said he was stoked to have sold the winning entry.
“We have been telling all of our customers and they’ve been very excited to hear that a win had landed in town,” he said.
“Congratulations to the winner! I hope they enjoy their prize.”
It’s the latest in a string of big lotto wins for locals, with a Queanbeyan man winning $100,000 after buying his ticket from Queanbeyan Newsagency earlier this month.
While in September, a Canberran became $1 million richer after buying a ticket at Jamison Centre News.
