Gold Coast couple gets gift in birthday card worth $100,000!

Wednesday 29 August, 2012 - A Gold Coast family scratched their way to being $100,000 richer with a $2 Flying Aces Instant Scratch-Its ticket!

The happy retirees said they were incredulous at winning the top prize.

“We’re just in disbelief,” the winning woman said.

“Our daughter bought me the Instant Scratch-Its ticket and gave it to me with my birthday card.

“I was so caught up reading the lovely things she wrote in the card that my husband took the liberty of scratching the ticket for me,” she laughed.

“I didn’t believe him when he said we’d won $100,000!”

The winners said they’ll be sharing their windfall with their family.

“We’ll help set our children up financially, and probably buy our daughter a car.

“Then we’ll take a little holiday ourselves to celebrate.”

The winning ticket was purchased from Supanews Macarthur in Macarthur Central on Queen Street in Brisbane.

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.
