Lotto Win For Drought-Affected Hunter Valley Farmer

Good on him!

Lotto Win For Drought-Affected Hunter Valley Farmer

A Hunter Valley farmer battling the drought has won $200,000 playing Lucky Lotteries.

The Singleton man took out last Friday's first-prize jackpot after purchasing a ticket from Singleton Discount Drug Store.

He says the money is a god-send after struggling to make ends meet.

"I've been buying hay for the animals and things are triple the price, so it'll be very good. It's come at a great time," he said.

"Someone up there likes us."

"We raise cattle for the markets and it has been tough, as a lot of our dams have been drying up."

"We are going to get a water bore and that can be expensive, so this will go towards things like that."
