A South West grandmother is $50,000 richer after picking up a $3 play Scratch’n’Win ticket at Busselton Boulevard Lottery Centre and Newsagency on Monday.

The 60-year-old woman said the win was “life changing” and she had already started crossing items off her bucket list, starting with some new dentures.

“I’ve got my new teeth and I’ll be flying over to visit my family in Melbourne — my first holiday in years,” the grandmother said.

Busselton Boulevard Lottery Centre and Newsagency is one of three Lotterywest retailers owned by Busselton residents Ted and Liz Callow.

The couple have owned Callows Corner Lottery Centre and Busselton Boulevard Lottery Centre and Newsagency since 1973 and 1989 respectively, with Vasse Village News and Lottery Centre joining the family in March this year.

The winning ticket adds to the retailers’ run of Lotto luck, with their two Busselton-based stores selling more than $20.2 million worth of division one and top prizes to their customers in the past 10 years.

The most notable win was a $15 million OZ Lotto ticket, which was won in March last year.
