Merimbula woman wins Lucky Lottery in lockdown

She might be in self-isolation but a Merimbula woman happily took delivery of a "gift from above" after winning $100,000 in today's Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.

The NSW player won the guaranteed first prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw 10361, drawn Friday, March 27.

This afternoon, an official from the Lott called the winner, who broke down in tears upon hearing the 'life-changing' news.

"Oh my god! Are you serious?" she cried happily.

"Okay, um, that is just brilliant! What a nice surprise! You've certainly made my Friday!

"I have been feeling sleepy but now you've well and truly woken me up!

"Gosh I am definitely going to celebrate. We are in lockdown at the moment, but I have some cake in the fridge, so I think I might have some of that with a coffee.

"I don't know what I'll do for the rest of the day. I will probably just sit here gobsmacked!"

When asked how she planned to enjoy her windfall, the emotional woman said it would go a long way to helping her and her family.

"You are the answers to my prayers. It's a gift from above," she admitted.

"It's been a bit of a rough time lately, but this will completely change our life!

"It will allow us to move! We've been wanting to for so long but haven't been able to.

"I can't begin to explain what this means to us."

The thrilled woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning entry online at thelott.com.

The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $1.96 million for draw 1481 while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot is now $4.01 million for draw 10362.
