15 Rockhampton workers celebrate $100,000 payday on Friday


A jolly group of 15 co-workers from Rockhampton ended their Friday with a bang after discovering they had won a $100,000 prize in a recent Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw.

Residents of Rockhampton won 1st prize in the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot Draw 10659 on Friday August 26, 2022.

“I saw that the draw had taken place, so I thought I better check our work ticket. There are 15 of us in our union,” the head of the workplace union explained.

“Surprisingly, we always run draws during the week, but we don’t always get a Lucky Lotteries entry.

“I just bought this because I saw the jackpot prize was over $24 million.

“I’m glad I got this ticket. It was worth it.

With each syndicate member to receive a share worth $6,666, the happy crew chief said plans are already underway.

“We won’t be able to retire, but we’ll make good use of it,” she laughed.

“One wants to put it in the bank and save for a trip abroad, while others are still thinking about it.

“It’s a good little help from Friday!

“We said it was probably just as well that we found out on a Friday afternoon because if we found out on Monday they probably wouldn’t get much out of us!”

The winning entry of the pool of 10 random numbers was purchased at Reid and Rose131 East Street, Rockhampton.

The Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize is now $13.73 million for the 1588 draw, while the Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot prize is now $24.725 million for the 10661 draw.

In FY22, 169 Lucky Lotteries 1st prize and jackpot winning entries across Australia won over $32.95 million.

Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot and Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot are raffle-type games, which means that there are a set number of tickets in each draw. As each ticket number is unique, there is no price sharing.

Each game has two draws – one that determines the winning numbers and one that determines the jackpot number. If the jackpot number matches one of the winning numbers, the jackpot prize is won. If the jackpot number does not match one of the winning numbers, the jackpot prize will increase for the next draw.

Tickets can be purchased at any authorized lottery outlet, online at thelott.com or via The Lott mobile app.

The official home of Australian lotteries, The Lott operates and markets the leading Australian lottery games that customers know and love to create everyday winners, everyday winners.

Last year, Australia’s official lotteries paid out more than $1.6 billion through state lottery taxes and donations to help community initiatives, such as hospitals, health research, disaster relief disaster and education.
