Grandmother set to live the life after scratching top prize!

Friday 22 January 2016 - What would you do if you received a weekly fun fund of $2,500 every week for five years?

A Central Coast grandmother is asking herself that question after scratching one of the two top prizes on an Instant Scratch-Its $10 Live the Life Gold ticket!

“I’m so excited,” the winner giggled when she spoke to a NSW Lotteries official.

“It’s so surreal! It’ll take me a little longer to really come to terms with the fact that I’ll be getting $2,500 each week for five years.

“I couldn’t believe it when I scratched the top prize. I cried after I saw that I’d won! I had so many tears rolling down my face, I could barely see!

“It wasn’t possible for me to claim my top prize straight away so I put my winning ticket in an envelope and took it everywhere with me!

“I don’t know how many times I double checked that I still had my winning ticket with me including before I went to bed and when I first woke up in the morning.

“Now that I’ve won this prize, I’m going to take it one step at a time and make sure that I keep a level head. I need a new car so I’ll be able to save up for it using my weekly prize money.”

The winning Instant Scratch-Its Live the Life $10 Gold ticket was purchased at Newspower Lake Munmorah, Shop 10, 275 Pacific Highway, Lake Munmorah.
