Waterford newlyweds celebrate more than wedded bliss with $10,000 Instant Scratch-Its win
Two Waterford newlyweds have ended their impromptu date night in the best way imaginable after scratching an Instant Scratch-Its ticket worth $10,000.
The top prize winning $1 Boo Bucks ticket was purchased at The Lucky Charm Holmview, Shop 6, 318-322 Logan River Road, Holmview.
Sharing her excitement with us, the Logan woman admitted the windfall was a perfect way to end their night out.
“It all started when we decided to have a spontaneous date night at a burrito bar,” the euphoric woman shared.
“We purchased $10 worth of lottery tickets and Instant Scratch-Its tickets.
“I picked out the Instant Scratch-Its tickets of course! I find them quite enjoyable.
“When we arrived at dinner, we decided to scratch the Instant Scratch-Its tickets.
“Out of nowhere, I looked down and saw we’d won $10,000! My partner yelled ‘Yahoo!’ across the restaurant. It was awesome!”
When asked how they planned to enjoy their prize, the lovebirds held no hesitation.
“We recently tied the knot and are looking at going on our honeymoon!” she said.
“It would be nice to also put some money towards a house. Maybe we’ll share some winnings with our family.
“We haven’t had a chance to celebrate the windfall. It would be nice to have some people over for drinks!”
The Lucky Charm Holmview owner Helen Alexander said they’re over the moon the win had gone to locals.
“It’s wonderful! I wasn’t in the store when they claimed their prize, however, one of our junior staff was and said the winners were so excited about their prize,” she said.
“When you know you’ve helped change someone’s life, you get the shakes! You’re as excited as the winner.
“Congratulations to the lovely couple. We wish them all the best.”
