A retired woman from Hawker is planning to set sail after winning one of the top prizes of $50,000 on a $4 Lucky Star Bingo Instant
Scratch-Its ticket.

The happy winner purchased her winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket from Hawker Place Cards & Gifts, Shop2, 72-72 Hawker Place, Hawker.

When we spoke with the happy winner this morning to confirm her prize, the Hawker woman admitted it took a while for her winning news to sink in.

“I bought the ticket for myself as I love Instant Scratch-Its! The newsagent suggested I give this game a go and I am glad I did,” she explained.

“I didn’t believe it at first. I was shocked that I had won one of the top prizes!

“I am very happy, very grateful, but still surprised.”

The stoked woman confessed she was a regular Instant Scratch-Its player and no stranger to top prize wins.

“I always buy some more tickets with my winnings,” she explained.

“I have won $10,000 before so I feel a bit lucky!

“Who knows, I might win again – good things comes in three, don’t they?”

When asked what she planned to do with her instant win, the happy retiree admitted she was excited to start planning a holiday.

“My partner and I would love to go on a European river cruise sometime next year,” she said.

“We are also planning to go out for a fancy dinner and pop some bubbles!”
