A Central Coast man who won $200,000 with a Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot Draw ticket he purchased at Foodworks, Wyee, on June 26, said he planned to pay off his mortgage and take a holiday. "Thank you so much. I checked my ticket over the weekend and I had no idea I had won a huge prize," the man told NSW Lotteries officials. Foodworks Wyee owner Melanie Southwood said it was her store's second major win in the past six months. "We're very excited as it wasn't that long ago we sold a Division 1-winning Monday Lotto entry," she said. "We're hoping the outlet is on a winning streak. We're very excited for the winner and hope it makes a huge difference in his life."
