A mystery Nowra man is $200,000 richer after claiming first prize in the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot, the winning ticket purchased from Nextra News Agency.

Speaking to an official from New South Wales Lotteries late yesterday to confirm his win, the Nowra resident explained it was a strange feeling that prompted him to check his winning entry.

Spokesperson Matt Hart says it was only the second Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot entry the man's ever purchased.

"He said he'd been through a few tough times recently and the shock of actually discovering that win has really left him a bit speechless", Mr Hart said.

"So he's really waiting to get his hands on that money to decide what he's going to do with it, but I'm sure he'll find some great uses for it", he said.
