Words by Nick Crockford

A Redcliffe woman says she feels like the ‘luckiest person in Australia’ after the gold coins rattling around her bag turned into a $10,000 Instant Scratch-Its win.

Her top prize-winning $5 Cash Path Instant Scratch-Its ticket was bought at The Lucky Charm Redcliffe, Bluewater Square Shopping Centre, Redcliffe.

“When something like this happens, you struggle to believe it!” she exclaimed when an official from The Lott called to confirm her windfall.

“I just keep thinking, ‘oh my god, am I the luckiest person in Australia?’.

“My kids and I are still gobsmacked. None of us can believe that this has happened but we’re all so grateful.

“I’m going to share it with them and it’s going to be such a help for us all given how expensive things are getting now.

“It’s just wonderful to know I can put a little bit away and I can have some security moving forward.
