From Coins to Jackpot: Redcliffe Woman’s $10,000 Windfall

In an extraordinary stroke of luck, a Redcliffe woman has described herself as the “luckiest person in Australia” after the gold coins rattling around her bag turned into a $10,000 windfall.

“When something like this happens, you struggle to believe it!” she exclaimed, still in disbelief after receiving a call from an official at The Lott confirming her win.

Her winning ticket, a $5 Cash Path Instant Scratch-Its, was purchased at The Lucky Charm Redcliffe, located at Shop 7B, Bluewater Square Shopping Centre, 20 Anzac Avenue, Redcliffe.

“I just keep thinking, ‘Oh my god, am I the luckiest person in Australia?'”

“My kids and I are still gobsmacked,” she shared.

“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.”

Additionally, she intends to set aside a portion of the prize money for added financial security.

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

For this lucky Redcliffe resident, the $10,000 windfall was more than just a financial blessing; it was a reminder of the joy that comes from a simple scratch.

“I love scratching away at an Instant Scratch-Its ticket! It’s a bit of fun and this just shows that you never know what’s going to happen.

“Thank you so much for this!”
