A Woodridge woman is in the mood to celebrate after winning one of the top prizes of $100,000 on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

When she spoke with the winner this morning, she explained she was at home when she scratched the ticket and was absolutely delighted when she initially, but mistakenly, thought she’d won a smaller prize.

“I thought it was $10,000 then I showed my friend and she said it was $100,000,” the thrilled winner revealed.

In complete shock, squeals of delight filled her home when she discovered her prize was in fact tenfold.

The windfall has come at a perfect time for the busy mum who is excited to spoil her family during the festive season.

“I’d been hoping for a pot of gold,” she exclaimed.

“A good Christmas is definitely coming our way.”

The ecstatic mum bought her winning $5 Crosswords Instant Scratch-its ticket at AUR Express Woodridge, Shop 5, 153-165 Smith Road, Woodridge.

AUR Express Woodridge team member Lorraine Hannequin said it had been her dream to sell a top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

“I hardly slept last night I was so excited,” she laughed with delight.

“I think I may have been more excited than the prize winner.”
