"Christmas has come early" for Narellan lottery winner

A Narellan man has declared "Christmas has come early" after discovering he won $200,000 in the latest Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw.

The local businessman won the guaranteed first prize of $200,000 today (Monday, December 2).

The unsuspecting winner told a NSW Lotteries official this morning that the news had come as a shock.

"I am lost for words," he said.

"It's the perfect way to start the week - I had a terrible week last week, so it's a brilliant surprise.

"Hopefully it means this week will be a better week."

When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the hardworking man said it would be a good boost for his business and holiday fund.

"I am going to put it towards my business. It will be a big help," he explained.

"I love Canada so I might go there for a holiday next year too.

"It feels like Christmas has come early."
