An Albany Creek resident is still coming to terms with his good fortune after discovering he won a life-changing sum of $200,000.

Prior to receiving a call from officials, the Queenslander who held the winning ticket for draw 1663 on the 22nd of April 2024 was completely unaware of his prize. The unexpected news left him speechless.

Plans for the windfall remain undecided. The lucky winner admitted that he hadn’t had time to think about how he would use the money because the news had caught him off guard.

“He was understandably overwhelmed,” the spokesperson from TheLott said. “After thanking us, he admitted he was too stunned to say much. His wife, who was with him, was equally surprised.”

“Travelling is on the agenda, though,” the spokesperson added. “He mentioned they were already planning a trip around Australia, and this win might allow them to splurge a bit during their travels.”

The winning ticket, featuring four randomly chosen numbers, was purchased through the app via Australia’s official lottery platform.
