Brisbane couple win $25,000 with a $1 Instant Scratch-Its ticket!

Friday 27 July, 2012 - A Brisbane couple will be holidaying in style after winning the top prize of $25,000 on a $1 Retro Riches Instant Scratch-Its ticket!

The winning woman said she was shocked when they realised they’d won.

“We’re very fortunate that we picked that ticket to play,” she said.

“We’ve always considered ourselves hippies so I was drawn to the $1 Retro Riches ticket with the ‘peace’ symbol on it because it looked like a hippie seventies design.

“We actually bought it with money my husband had won on another Instant Scratch-Its ticket, so we didn’t have to put another dollar towards it.

“It turned out to be a good reinvestment!” she exclaimed.

The couple said they have a few plans for their surprise prize money.

“We’re going to go on a nice holiday together and buy a few of the little things we’ve been in need of.”

The winning ticket was purchased from Supanews Xpress, Shop K208B at Westfield Garden City.

Golden Casket Public Relations Executive Zoe Knobel said the new Instant Scratch-Its $15 Velvet Edition ticket still has a huge top prize up for grabs.
