Our Lottery 169 Winner
Lottery 169 | Mortgage Buster Prize Choice | Inverloch , Victoria | Total Prize Amount $705,000
Our Lottery 169 winner, Adam* did not believe us when we called to deliver the news about his $705,000 Lottery WIN. Adam had won our $650,000 1st Prize plus an additional $55,000 Book Buyer Prize, making him our biggest ever Lottery winner! Understandably he was speechless and his first words after hearing the amazing news had the Deaf Lottery team in stitches.
“How long do you think I can keep this from my wife?”
Adam had purchased his tickets while holidaying on the Gold Coast. He was walking through Marina Mirage shopping centre when he struck up a conversation with one of our Customer Service Representatives.
“I remember my friend and I were waiting for our families to decide where we were going to have lunch when a friendly young man asked if we would kindly support Hear for Kids, a program designed to support Deaf and hard of hearing children. We both thought nothing of it as we purchased a $200 book each and I had honestly forgotten about my ticket purchase altogether until this call. Never did I think I would win, I was happy to be supporting such a great cause.”
Adam and his wife decided to purchase a new 2018 Toyota Hilux Single Cab ute and are planning to pay off their mortgage and save the remainder of their winnings for their children’s schooling.
