Rutherford mum wins $25,000 on a scratchie from Woolworths petrol station

A Rutherford mother got more than chocolate this Easter after she won $25,000 on a $2 Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased the winning ticket from the Woolworths petrol station at Rutherford.

“I stopped into the service station at Rutherford and bought a couple of $5 and $2 Instant Scratch-Its and couldn’t believe I’d won $25,000,” she said.

“In the past, $500 is the most I’ve ever won. I had my family with me in the car. They had to double check it! 

“I couldn’t believe it.  I was shaking.  I was literally shaking.”

With the prize the Rutherford woman is going to pay off her car and go on a cruise.

“I’m also going to give my mum and dad a bit of it too as they’ve helped me out a lot.”
