Port Fairy woman faces sleepless night with eye-opening $100,000 Instant Scratch-Its win
The excitement of discovering a $100,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket has left a Port Fairy woman tossing and turning all night.
The top prize winning $5 Casino Rush ticket was purchased at Norfolk Lotto, Shop 4-5, Norfolk Plaza, 743 Raglan Parade, Warrnambool.
“I scratched the Instant Scratch-Its ticket right before going to bed at 11pm and I was left in disbelief,” the regular Victorian player told us.
“I was in absolute shock! I thought to myself, ‘I can’t tell anyone about this win because it’s too late at night to be messaging people!’.
“After discovering the win, I was tossing and turning all night thinking about it. It was a very sleepless night!
“Although I’m keeping it on the down-low, I’ve told a few people. Most were a bit stunned to start off with. Some said, ‘we never thought people could win big on Instant Scratch-Its tickets’.
“I’ve proved them wrong!” When asked how she planned to enjoy her instant windfall, the winning woman said she already knew exactly what she was going to do.
“I’m getting close to retirement, so I’ll probably invest the funds until I retire,” she shared.
“When you get closer to retirement, you start to get a bit nervous, but now I know that I’m going to be okay!”
The Norfolk Lotto team said they were ecstatic to have sold a top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket with the new owners only taking over the business 16 weeks ago.
This is the third Instant Scratch-Its top prize Norfolk Lotto has sold during the past 15 years.
