Southern highlands woman scores the $50,000 prize at the Instant Scratch-Its Treasure Chest Event!

Tuesday 17 April - This afternoon in Sydney’s Martin Place, five Instant Scratch-Its treasure chests were lined up, each containing a prize of between $10,000 and $200,000. Five promotional winners each had a key to a big prize; all they had to do was open their treasure chest to see what was inside!

Miss C.E from the NSW Southern Highlands is the second member of her family to enjoy a big win in an Instant Scratch-Its second chance promotion.

The Southern Highlands winner said that she will put the money towards fulfilling her dream of buying a home.

“I was really nervous this morning waiting for my chance to open a treasure chest. I just couldn’t believe it when I saw the $50,000 prize I started crying with happiness,” Miss C.E. said.

“I’m going to put $45,000 away towards buying a house and $5,000 towards a holiday. This brings me so much closer to buying a house, I would never have been able to save this much money.

“I buy Instant Scratch-Its tickets now and again. My sister won a big prize in an Instant Scratch-Its second chance draw and that spurred me on to enter my non-winning tickets into this promotion.

“I’m going to have a nice dinner with my sister this evening to celebrate my good fortune,” the winner added.

Miss C.E from the Southern Highlands registered her non-winning $5 Instant Scratch-Its ticket in the Treasure Chest promotion in February and won her chance to open a treasure chest at today’s event.

Also participating in today’s Instant Scratch-Its Treasure Chest event were Stephen Anthony from Dolls Point who won a $10,000 prize, Belinda from Penrith who also won a $10,000 prize, Karen from Greystanes who won a $30,000 prize and Mrs H.L. from Delegate who won the $200,000 top prize.

Audience members at today’s event also had the opportunity to win, with five lucky attendees scoring a $1,000 each.
