Truck driver’s delight at massive $200,000 lottery win

IF ANY situation is the right one to take a sickie, it's this one. 

This truck driver called and said he wouldn't be into work today after finding out he won $200,000 in the lottery. 

The Mt Cotton driver, who lives in Redlands and wishes to remain anonymous, took home the first prize from Mega Jackpot draw 1368.

He told Redlands Community News the win hadn't sunk in yet and he "hadn't stopped shaking since I saw it online, I didn't think it was real".

The driver said he already had plans for the money - it was going to pay some bills, help his family and perhaps by a campervan to go travelling around Australia.
