“When I scratched the ticket I had a huge smile! I absolutely screamed the newsagency down!
“It still hasn’t sunk in! I can’t believe I bought myself one ticket, and I won $100,000.
“It’s a ridiculous amount of money. It really will change my life.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her instant win, the loving mum said she couldn’t wait to spoil her family.
“My greatest joy is to be able to share it with my kids,” she shared.
“They have already been sending me cars they want to buy!
“All I really want is a fridge and freezer. One of those fancy ones that you can get the ice and water from the front.
“I wouldn’t mind a new washing machine too!
“I’ve never been overseas either. It would be nice to get a passport and put some of it towards a future trip!”
The $5 20 X the Cash Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Nextra Nerang Mall.
