'Great ending' to holiday after couple scratch $100,000 top prize!

Thursday 24 October, 2013 - A Brisbane couple travelled home from a recent holiday with a very special piece of cargo in their car after they scratched the $100,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $2 ticket!

The excited winners explained to Golden Casket that they’d picked up some Instant Scratch-Its tickets on their drive home from their vacation. 

“My wife was driving and I was scratching my Instant Scratch-Its tickets,” the winning man explained. 

“When I scratched the winning ticket, we had trouble believing that we’d won $100,000 so we actually stopped at another newsagent about 20 kilometres down the road to have the ticket checked!” 

“It was a great ending to our holiday,” the winner added. 

The Instant Scratch-Its top prize winners, who wish to remain anonymous, said they’re not quite sure what they’ll do with their $100,000 windfall. 

The Instant Scratch-Its $2 ticket was purchased at Newsextra Calliope, Shop 7 in Central Shopping Centre, 2041 Dawson Highway in Calliope.
