A FAMILY in Mulomulo, Nadi, are rejoicing after winning $30,000 in the 'Shining Butterfly' scratch ticket series.

Diwakar Lal, the agent of Reddy's Wines Tatts Lotto Agency, said the man from Mulomulo purchased two tickets and took them home to his wife.

"He wasn't paying attention when his wife screamed 'Oh my God, oh my God, I think we have won, I got the $30,000'," Mr Lal said.

In the statement, the winner who wished to remain anonymous said "this win which God has given my family, I will spend the $30,000 on both my children's education".
