Morisset woman ‘stoked’ by $100,000 surprise


A Morisset woman has confessed she couldn’t stop shaking when she discovered she’d won $100,000.

Initially, she thought she’d picked up $10,000 on her Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

“I’m stoked! I’m absolutely stoked,” she exclaimed when speaking with an official from The Lott.

“I still can’t believe it.

“I was shaking, shaking, shaking when I found out.

“I only buy Instant Scratch-Its tickets every now and then – and I scratched this one at home.

“At first, I thought I had only revealed nine words, so I thought I had won $10,000.

“But, then I found another word – so that was 10 words and $100,000.

“It was very exciting. It’s just wonderful.”

Her $5 Mystery Crosswords Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Morisset Square Newsagency.

“It’s just unbelievable – you just don’t expect to win,” she added.

“This will help pay off most of the mortgage – it will take a big chunk off.

“We might even take a holiday, which would be great as it’s been ages.”

Morisset Square Newsagency owner Wade Tracey said he was thrilled his outlet had sold its first top prize-winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

“We’ve had the shop four years, however this is the first top prize-winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket we’ve sold,” he explained.

“We love to celebrate our wins and we’ve sold plenty of division two wins.

“It’s great to see we’ve now sold a top prize in Instant Scratch-Its, too.

“Customers will be thrilled to see another win land in-store and, hopefully, this is the start of a winning streak of big prizes.”

In FY22, more than 133.5 million winners took home more than $3.93 billion in prize money from their favourite games at The Lott, including Saturday Lotto, Monday & Wednesday Lotto, Powerball, Oz Lotto, Set for Life, Lucky Lotteries, Keno, Super 66, Lotto Strike and Instant Scratch-Its.
