A Tamworth man is planning to spoil his family and friends with his welcomed $200,000 windfall.
The retiree won the guaranteed first prize of $200,000 in Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw 1421 drawn on Monday.
Confirming his win with a NSW Lotteries official this afternoon, the man revealed he had no idea he'd been walking around with a winning entry all week.
"Thank you very much," he said.
"I've never won anything like this in all my life.
"I feel very excited. This is very nice news.
"I can't believe I've won $200,000 after all these years of playing Lucky Lotteries."
When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the generous man thought of his friends first.
"I'll be able to use this prize very wisely," he said.
"I'll be able to help out a number of my friends and the rest I'll put into savings.
"I'm looking forward to celebrating with my nearest and dearest over the weekend."
The happy man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning entry at Shoppingworld Newsagency.
