Good news for a local Port Lincoln woman who has won $50,000 on an instant scratch it ticket she purchased from Terry White Chemist Port Lincoln.
The woman rang SA Lotteries to calm her prize saying she believes her late husband was looking down on her.
She says she bought the ticket last Friday and it’s a family tradition where she sits down with her daughter and mother in law to scratch a few over a cup of tea, her husband use to also join in on the fun before he passed.
“I was shocked when I saw I won! I didn’t believe it! We all checked the ticket about five or six times each to make sure it was real.
“Once I realised it was true, it was just a really great feeling. Very surreal”
The woman said “I feel as though my husband is looking down on us and this win is his way of helping us out.
She says she is going to use the money to renovate her house, her husband was working on before he passed.
