Friday 11 January, 2013 - A trio of long-time friends are set to share in $50,000 after one of the women scratched the Top Prize on a $2 Instant Scratch-Its ticket!
The winning ticket worth $50,000 was purchased from Strathfield Plaza Newsagency.
The 78-year-old Grandmother who scratched the prize said she was given the Instant Scratch-Its ticket as a gift from her friend.
“My two lady friends and I went out for lunch and one of them gave me an Instant Scratch-Its ticket as a belated Christmas gift,” she explained.
“I scratched it at the table where we sat for lunch and when I realised I won the Top Prize I promised we would share it between us.
“I’ve never won more than $200 with an Instant Scratch-Its ticket so it’s lovely to have won this prize and be able to share it with my friends,” she added.
“I’ll use some of the prize money to help out my Grandson who is getting married soon. My children say I should go on holiday so I’ll think about that too.”
The $50,000 Top Prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket was sold from Strathfield Plaza Newsagency, Shops 43 & 44, The Boulevarde in Strathfield.
