Wednesday 16 January, 2013 - A retired woman from Caboolture has won the Top Prize of $100,000 on a $2 Instant Scratch-Its ticket!
The winning woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, said she didn’t trust her eyes when she saw the prize amount at first.
“My eyesight isn’t too good so when I thought I might have won something I had to get out the magnifying glass to look closer and check my eyes weren’t fooling me!” the winner said.
“I didn’t take the ticket to Golden Casket to be verified right away and when I saw my doctor in the meantime he said my blood pressure was higher than normal. I had to explain that there was nothing wrong, it was just that I’d won $100,000,” the winner laughed.
“I’m delighted with winning this money because it provides some financial security for my future.
“I’ll be celebrating by taking some of my family and friends out for lunch. I said to them, ‘no tomato sandwiches this time’!”
The winning $2 Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased from Caboolture Park Newsagency, 23A Caboolture Park Shopping Centre on King Street.
