“I’m over the moon!” she laughed.
“Oh my god. I can’t believe I actually scratched a winning ticket, it’s just insane!”
The woman said she scratched the ticket earlier this week and couldnt believe her eyes.
“I’m not joking, I had to get my entire family to double check it!” she said.
“Then when I checked the ticket at the newsagency, I literally cried happy tears when they told me it was true!
“It’s come at the best time. It’s brought plenty of excitement to my life in these uncertain times.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy it, the happy woman said it was time to make some of her long-held dreams a reality.
“It’s a great feeling to know I will be able to help out my family a little bit,” she explained.
“And I have been dreaming of buying a new car for a very long time so I am going to do that which will be amazing and then I will save the rest.”
The winning scratchie was purchased at Pimpama Lotto & News at the Pimpama City Shopping Centre.
