A Kempsey mother was left thanking the universe and dancing her way into the weekend after her Instant Scratch-Its ticket landed her  a $25,000 top prize win.

The $2 Feline Rich Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Chaddies Newsagent & Store, Shop 2, 1-3 Rudder Street, Kempsey.

The New South Wales resident relayed how her winning discovery came about when we reached out to her.

“I went to the newsagency to check a different ticket I had. It’d won $10 so I just bought a couple more to do later,” she said.

“They were sitting in my bag all day.

“When I finally scratched the ticket, I was in disbelief. I called my children in and said ‘Am I seeing this right?!

“They started screaming and we all did a big happy dance around the house!

“I’ve had a lot of setbacks these past few months, but I’ve been persevering and now I’ve finally been rewarded for staying strong.

“To me, it’s a sign from the universe telling me I’m supported and on the right path.

“I’m getting goosebumps just talking about it!

“I’m still in shock.

“It’s just amazing. Now I can go on a holiday!
