Canberra woman dreaming of holiday adventure with $100,000 Instant Scratch-Its win
A Canberra woman is looking forward to planning her dream getaway thanks to a $100,000 Instant Scratch-Its win.
The top prize winning $5 Crosswords ticket was sold at Cooleman Court Newsagency, Shop G5, Cooleman Court, 26 Brierly Street, Weston.
Sharing her excitement with us this morning, the ACT player said she was still struggling to believe her good fortune.
“It just feels a little bit surreal to be honest!” she laughed.
“I buy scratchies regularly but you never expect it to happen to you!
“It took me a little while to realise I’d won such a huge prize.
“I stared at the ticket for so long. There was a lot of disbelief. It’s only starting to feel real now.
“It was very, very exciting! I couldn’t be happier.”
With $100,000 about to hit her bank account, the Canberra woman said she’d love to splurge on a big holiday.
“I am going to save it for now,” she declared.
“Maybe I’ll go on a big holiday when things open up a little more. One day I would love to go to Africa, but that’s probably a little far off.”
Cooleman Court Newsagency employee Nish Shah said the win marked a special milestone for the outlet.
“This is such great news!” he exclaimed.
“This is the first top prize winning ticket we’ve sold since the new ownership of the store.
“Congratulations to our winner. We are so happy for them!”
