A young Tully woman is one step closer to realising her dream of buying her very own home, thanks to a $25,000 Instant Scratch-Its win.

The top prize winning $2 Dice Doubler ticket was purchased at newsXpress Tully, 6 Bulter Street, Tully. 

Sharing her excitement with us this morning, the regional Queenslander explained how her win came to be. 

“I was walking past the newsagent and thought to grab a scratchie,” she explained. 

“I don’t purchase them very often, so I’m not sure what prompted me to get one. 

“I went home and scratched it and I was shocked! It was such a surprise. So much was going through my mind. 

“I could hardly talk. I was speechless for quite some time.” 

With $25,000 about to hit her bank account, the young winner had no doubt she’s now a step closer to buying her dream home. 

“I am going to save it and put it towards a house deposit,” she declared. 

“It’s certainly going to be a big help!” 

newsXpress Tully owner Tracey Taylor said it was exciting to see a regular customer score a major win. 

“I feel so happy to be part of this woman’s winning experience,” she explained. 

“It was such a pleasure to sell her a top prize winning ticket. 

“Congratulations to her!”
