Lotto player almost gifts winning ticket

8th January 2021 2:09pm

To celebrate the festive period, an Australian woman added a unique and personal touch to Christmas cards she planned to give to close friends. She slipped a lottery ticket in each card!

After sealing each Christmas card with a lottery ticket carefully tucked inside the lady from Edgeworth, New South Wales realised she had one ticket leftover.

Naturally, the player decided to scratch the ticket for herself and was utterly astonished to discover the ticket was a $7,765.45 top prize winner.

"I thought I may as well keep it for myself," the woman recalled.

"I was dumbfounded," she said. "I was so excited. I couldn't believe it. I just sat there completely stunned."

"I could have easily put that ticket in someone's Christmas card," she said. "I felt as though it was really meant to be for me."

The lucky winner has now cashed out her Christmas winnings and plans to take a holiday and share some of the money with her granddaughter.

Giving a lottery ticket as a gift is a great idea as long as you remember, a gift is a gift. You can't ask for the present back if it turns out to be a winner!
