The ‘luck of the draw’ worked in the favour of a Newcastle man who won the lottery.

The Hamilton local scored the first prize of $100,000 in Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot draw yesterday.

Excited and still in shock, he told The Lott he was going to take the day off work to celebrate.

“When I found out, my jaw hit the ground,”

“I’m absolutely stunned!” he exclaimed.

His spending plans are vague but he says he’s looking forward to exploring Australia.

The winner, who has remained anonymous, purchased his ticket from Beaumont Street Newsagency.
