A Brighton mum has admitted she couldn’t stop screaming ‘f***’ after discovering she won $100,000 on a $5 Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

Speaking with us today when claiming her prize, the elated woman shared how the discovery of her instant win left her in a ‘zombie’ state.

“I was at home yesterday and had a few scratchies sitting on the bench that I got for Christmas and thought I would scratch them all at one,” she explained.

“This was the last one I scratched. I actually thought to myself as I was scratching it, ‘wouldn’t it be funny if I won $100,000 on this last ticket?’ And bloody hell I did!

“I couldn’t believe it! I kept flipping the ticket over and reading the back to double check. Then I just started screaming ‘f***, f***, f***, f***!’ over and over.

“It was definitely a swear worthy moment! It was just so bizarre!

“I was walking around the house like a zombie for a good three hours!

“God, then last night I could not sleep. I woke up so many times thinking ‘Is this even real?!’. I was so scared it was a dream.”

The happy woman explained she wanted to share her instant windfall with her family.

“It will be such a help to all of us,” she shared.

“I am definitely going to celebrate this weekend! Pop a bottle of bubbles when my family is all home.

“Honestly, this is the best day ever. I never thought I would win. It’s just not something that you think is actually possible, but clearly it is!

“What a way to start 2019!”

The winning $5 Christmas Wish Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Eventide News & Casket Agency, Shop 18, 353 Beaconsfield Terrace, Brighton.
