A Walgett retiree is planning to cruise around in a new set of wheels after scoring $10,000 on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket.  

The top prize winning $1 Cupcake Cash was purchased at Walgett Newsagency, 79-81 Fox Street, Walgett. 

Sharing her excitement with us today, the regular Instant Scratch-Its player relived the winning moment. 

“I was just at home with my family when I scratched it,” she shared. 

“I couldn’t believe it. I thought I must have been seeing things! 

“My heart was racing. It’s such a lovely surprise. 

“After playing for all these years it’s very exciting.” 

When asked how she might enjoy her instant windfall, the New South Wales woman had one thing in mind. 

“I’m going to buy myself a new car,” she said. 

“I’ve been wanting one for such a long time so it’s going to be a treat!” 

Walgett Newsagency employee Tina said it was the first top prize winning an Instant Scratch-Its ticket the outlet had sold. 

“This is an exciting milestone for the outlet and we certainly hope it’s the first of many big wins,” she said. 

“This is a fantastic boost for the local community. 

“Congratulations to our winner! We really hope they enjoy their prize.”
