A Dysart woman says everything has suddenly fallen into place after she scratched a top prize of $100,000 on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

Sharing her joy us this morning, the winning woman explained she was still coming to terms with the exciting news.
“I buy scratchies every week,” she explained.
“I was sitting there minding my own business, scratching away when I realised I may have won a big prize, but I wasn’t completely sure.
“I took it straight down to the newsagency but I didn’t want to get my hopes up.
“They told me the prize was too big for them to pay out, so that’s when I realised it must have been the big one!
“It was absolutely awesome!
“I still can’t believe it!”
When asked how she thought she may enjoy her instant windfall, she had no hesitation revealing her plans.
“I’m going to buy myself a new car, that’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” she declared.

“It’s a huge relief knowing I don’t have to stress about any upcoming bills anymore.
“Everything is falling into place now. It’s great!”
