$100,000 Instant Scratch-Its birthday surprise for Sydney woman

Thursday 19 April - A $5 Instant Scratch-Its ticket lead to a $100,000 birthday win for a Sydney lawyer today.

The woman, who came to the NSW Lotteries head office this morning to claim her prize, said that the experience was surreal.

“My husband bought the ticket for my birthday, which is today. I scratched it last night and I triple checked it before I called my husband to check it again to make sure I had really won,” the delighted winner told a NSW Lotteries official.

“My mind has been racing ever since scratching that ticket.”

The winner and her husband are in no doubt about how they will use their instant windfall.

“This will be our splurge, we will go on a great holiday and also pay off some debts,” the winner said.

The city lawyer and regular Instant Scratch-Its player won the $100,000 top prize on a $5 Instant Scratch-Its ticket.
