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.”
