Hunter gardener bloomin’ after $25,000 win

A lucky Singleton woman is still on a high today after scoring the $25,000 Instant Scratch-Its top prize.

What started out as a day pottering around the garden soon blossomed into a moment the Upper Hunter local won’t forget in a long time.

Maybe she has a green thumb for winning!

“I’m over the moon,” the woman told The Lott after picking up her prize.

“I actually bought the Instant Scratch-Its tickets with my mum. We had just finished gardening and we were treating ourselves to a nice lunch.

“We like to buy tickets every now and then. Mum was scanning one of hers that had won $10, and I had a couple of coins, so I bought three $2 tickets, and then that was that!

“It’s awesome. We both did a happy cheer together.”

The winning ticket, a $2 Cash Spooktacular Instant Scratch-Its, was purchased from Foodworks in Singleton Heights. The Foodworks team told The Lott they couldn’t be happier for their lucky winner and extended their best wishes for her incredible win.
