Wednesday 4 September, 2013 - A woman from Westbury is planning to cut back on work and treat herself to more relaxation time after winning $100,000 on an Instant Scratch-Its $2 ticket. 

The winner said she just couldn’t believe that she’d won $100,000 when she scratched the Instant Scratch-Its ticket at home. 

“I jumped in the car and went straight back to the outlet,” the excited winner explained. 

“I handed the ticket over the counter and asked if the woman could check it for me. 

“She checked the Instant Scratch-Its ticket and then went as white as a ghost! I was shaking like a leaf by that stage. 

“This is a once in a lifetime thing!” 

The Instant Scratch-Its winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, said the win is life changing for her.
