Claims top prize on Crosswords scratchie

Kingscliff woman turns $5 into $100,000

A big surprise for a Kingscliff woman who has won $100,000 on a scratchie!

She thought she had only won $150 on the $5 Instant Scratch-Its ticket, but when she went back to News at Kingsliff to claim the cash, they told her she had won more.

She checked again and thought she had won $10,000.

"So I sent my ticket off to claim the prize, but then someone from NSW Lotteries rang me to say ‘you didn’t win $10,000, you won the major prize of $100,000!’," she said.

She plans to spend her winnings on a holiday, and to help two close friends in need.

“I’m a winner and a grinner!” She said.
