A Waikiki woman has claimed that a series of money saving events guided her to a $50,000 Scratch’n’Win.
The winner said it all started with a medical appointment.
“I went to the doctor who doesn’t usually bulk bill, but this time he did,” she said.
“I then went to the chemist and everything I needed was on special, so I was onto another winner.”
She decided to use some of her savings on a handful of Scratch’n’Win tickets, including a $3 Cupcake Cash ticket from The Lucky Charm Waikiki.
“At first I thought I had won $5, then I saw a zero, then another and another,” she said.
Lotterywest spokesperson Hermione Coleman said fingers were crossed for more WA fortune in tonight’s $50 million Powerball draw.
“We would love tonight’s $50 million Powerball draw to create more WA Division One winners to our 2021 tally, which currently stands at 15,” she said.
“This is the highest jackpot we’ve had this year and the highest jackpot that Powerball has risen to since July 2020.
“We’re expecting to sell more than 450,000 tickets for this draw and nearly 600 every minute between the busiest hours of 4pm and 5pm tonight so getting your tickets early is strongly advised.”
