Quite the Christmas gift for a Bothwell woman.

Brittany Smith was given an instant lotto gift pack from her father-in-law, and ended up winning $50,000 on a Lucky Lines ticket.

The 31-year-old mother says she could hardly believe her luck and shared a celebratory moment with her family and in-laws before going to the store to get the ticket validated.

As a self-employed hair stylist, Smith says her business has been hit hard by the pandemic.

“I have a young family and I want to take some of this money to spoil ourselves and our kids,” she said. “I want to add some joy and celebration into the ongoing pandemic experience our family has had.”

Odds of winning any prize with an Instant Gift Pack is 1 in 3.08.

The winning ticket was purchased at Inwood Grocery and Variety in Inwood.
