A Point Cook woman says she’s started the new year in the most “perfect way” after winning $50,000 on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket. 

The top prize winning $4 ticket was purchased at Point Cook Lotto, Shop 16, Featherbrook Shopping Centre, 238 Boardwalk Boulevard, Point Cook. 

Confirming her instant windfall with us this morning, the Victorian woman said she was still coming to terms with her win. 

“I hadn’t bought myself a scratchie for a couple of months,” she explained. 

“So when we were down at the shops I grabbed one for myself. 

“I honestly could not believe it when I scratched the ticket! 

“I was shaking and my heart was pounding. It was incredibly exciting! 

“I just couldn’t believe that the one I chose happened to be the winner. I feel like it was meant to be!” 

When asked how she planned to enjoy $50,000, the Melbourne resident said it would help her get ahead in a big way. 

“It’s the perfect way to start the year!” she exclaimed. 

“This is going to be hard to top! “I’m going to pay off my car and pay a few other bills. 

“Then the rest is going to go into savings towards a house deposit.”
