A Dapto mum has confessed she didn’t sleep a wink after discovering she’d won a top lottery prize before going to bed.
She scratched up a top prize of $1,000 a week for five years on a $5 Live the Life Instant Scratchie.
Remarkably, the winning ticket, from Dapto Newsagency, was a free ticket won on a previous Instant Scratchie.
She says when she realised the house erupted, with the kids screaming and both her and her husband checking it over and over again.
They haven't yet decided how to spend their windfall.
