Kathi wins $5000 from competition

KATHI Perry spent six minutes staring at one hundred blank envelopes, trying to figure out which one held the key to $1 million.

Kathi was the winner of APN's Chance to Win a Million competition which attracted more than 20,000 entries over six weeks and was run across all the regional papers in the group, including The Morning Bulletin.

With shaking hands she selected an envelope and handed it to Noel Kane, the Justice of the Peace overseeing her selection.

He opened it and revealed to her a prize of $5000.

Though it wasn't the seven figures she was looking for, Kathi said she was stoked to win anything.

“I'm very happy,” Kathi said.

Kathi said her strategy was to hold her dominant hand over the envelopes to see if she could feel any sign to tell her which one held the golden ticket.

She said she couldn't feel anything from the envelopes and went with her instincts to select one.

After making her choice Noel revealed the envelope containing the $1 million prize, barely a metre away from the envelope she had chosen.

“For some reason I just knew it was on this table,” Kathi said.
