It’s not every day that you’re able to turn a dream into a reality but for one Dunsborough fly-in, fly-out worker, his $100,000 scratchie win did just that.

The 42-year-old man from Dunsborough, who asked not to be named, said he planned to put money towards his mortgage but also to finish restoring a Kingswood ute.

“I want to get into drag racing,” he said.

“Racewars in Albany is something I’m hoping to be involved in, or Powercruise in Perth.

“It’s always been a passion of mine and now it’s finally one I can afford.”

He bought the $20 Regal Riches Scratch’n’Win ticket from Sea Change Newspower in Dunsborough.

“I’ve been buying this same scratchie for the past two or three months as it’s easy to play,” he said.

“It sat on my kitchen bench, unscratched, for about a week, otherwise I would have come to Lotterywest much sooner.”

Sea Change Newspower director Travis Fassom said 2020 had been a tough year for many but lucky for the newsagent.

“In February we sold division one, which was $1.3m, we sold division two for Saturday Lotto in June, and last week we sold division two for Monday Lotto, which was $5000 and followed it up with this scratchie win,” he said. “Obviously 2020 has been hard for a lot of people but Lotterywest are providing all profits towards the COVID-19 fund.”

The latest Scratch’n’Win prize takes the yearly total to 40.
