Can a Bird Poo Help You Win a Scratchie? Find out who was the luckiest winner
There are many kinds of superstitions associated with animals. Though animals have nothing to do with your life or riches as they neither want to win a lottery nor million dollars of cash as they are happy and contended with the nature and natural surroundings, but many cultures around the world have many folklores on animals and their good or bad happenings to humans. One of them is bird poop brings good luck. This belief has been going on since ages that if a bird poops on you, your car or your property, you may receive good luck and riches.
Recently this belief proved true when a Sydney woman won on scratchie because bird pooed on her. This woman who is a worker bought a $5 Live the Life Instant Scratch Its ticker and won one of the top prizes. She purchased her winning ticket from Newslink at Martin Place Railway Station in Sydney when she took home the top prize. Speaking to a NSW Lotteries official to claim her prize, the winner said she won the top prize of $1,000 per week for five years.
Her funny story
“It was a funny story. I was out to dinner with some friends and a bird actually pooed on me, and so they were all joking and said that I needed to buy a scratchie or a lottery ticket because it is a sign of good luck,” she said.
“And so I went to the newsagency, and thought I’d just buy this $5 Live the Life one that looked pretty.
“I was heading to a meeting the next day in a cab and we were stuck in some really heavy traffic so I thought I would scratch it then.
“Once I’d scratched it, I read the rules because I am not a regular player, and I just thought I was reading it incorrectly.
“So when my taxi dropped me off, I quickly ducked into a newsagency and the lady told me it was a significant amount. “Now that it has been confirmed, I am feeling very excited and just so grateful for this.”
The woman who remains anonymous said she already had some plans for her winnings including travel. “You know, it’s really great because I am young and everyone always tells me how hard it is to buy a house and to get ahead, but now I have won this prize,” she said.
“So, it really feels like everything is coming together, it’s all very neat.“I don’t want to do anything crazy and I want to use it sensibly.
“I am going to start saving to put a deposit down on a house, do some travelling and I’d love to take my partner and family on a beautiful weekend getaway or take them out for a nice dinner.”
Newslink Martin Place manager Margaret Doyle said she was thrilled to discover the outlet had sold a top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket. “Wow that is really, really exciting. It is fantastic!” she exclaimed. “This is fabulous, absolutely fabulous, I am so happy for the winner”.
The more birds involved, the richer you’ll be. So next time a bird poops on you, remember that it’s a good thing.
