A Gold Coast woman had a Mother’s Day to remember after scratching one of the top prizes on a $5 scratchie she bought for herself.
The winner, who wants to remain anonymous, purchased the lucky scratchie at Nextra Burleigh Town News at Stocklands Burleigh Heads.
“It was on Mother’s Day and I was out to lunch with my family,” the woman told a Golden Casket official.

“They know I like to buy scratchies and said I should go and get one. I did and I won!
“When I scratched it I thought ‘this can’t be right – is this for real? Oh God, I hope this is genuine’.
“It was lovely!”
The Burleigh Heads resident said she plans on sharing the instant windfall among family members.
