A young Pimpama woman says her $50,000 Instant Scratch-Its win has brought an overwhelming amount of excitement to her life from the moment she scratched one of the top prizes on a $4 ticket.
Her winning $4 Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Pimpama Lotto & News, Shop 14A, Pimpama City Shopping Centre, Pimpama.
Confirming her win with us, the Gold Coast woman said she was still on a high from the major win.
“I’m over the moon!” she laughed with excitement.
“Oh my god. I can’t believe I actually scratched a winning ticket, it’s just insane!
“It all happened earlier this week, I scratched the ticket and honestly couldn’t believe that I had won $50,000.
“I’m not joking, I had to get my entire family to double check it!
“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 her instant win, 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.
