Instant Scratch-Its $5 ticket delivers $100,000 win!

Friday 11 October, 2013 - A woman who recently purchased an Instant Scratch-Its $5 Crosswords ticket in Riverwood couldn’t believe it when she realised she had won the top prize of $100,000! 

“I bought a few Instant Scratch-Its tickets on my way home from visiting someone who’d just had a baby,” the winner explained. 

“In an amazing coincidence one of the words on that winning Instant Scratch-Its $5 Crosswords was ‘birth’!”

Despite being $100,000 richer, the winner said she’s not planning a spending spree any time soon. 

“The money is sitting in the bank at the moment. We’re going to take our time and have a think about what we can do with it.” 

The winning Instant Scratch-Its $5 Crosswords ticket was purchased at Riverwood Newsagency, 335 Belmore Road in Riverwood.
