More Family Time for Victoria Set for Life Winner


Angella Gordon-Spence from Victoria is excited to spend more time with her family after winning $675,000 from her Set for Life ticket.

“I have been playing Set for Life for about a year – it’s been my favourite Scratch & Win ticket,” Gordon-Spence said. “I must have looked at the ticket a million times after I won, thinking it must be a dream.”

After validating her ticket at the store she bought it from, Gordon-Spence knew it was real. “I immediately told my husband, he was so shocked, he couldn’t believe it. We were both so happy.”  

Gordon-Spence is planning a nice dinner to celebrate the win with her family. “This calls for a celebration because this win will help us in many ways,” Gordon-Spence added. “I want to take a family vacation to Mexico to relax and then we’ll decide what to do from there.”    

Gordon-Spence purchased the winning Set for Life ticket at Hillside Shopping Centre in Victoria.
