Dubbo woman wins Instant Scratch-Its top prize!

Wednesday 9 October, 2013 - A woman from Dubbo will “Live the Life” after scratching the top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $3 ticket! 

The extremely happy winner told NSW Lotteries that she had trouble convincing her husband that she’d just scratched the top prize of $5,000 a month for 10 years on the Instant Scratch-Its $3 Live the Life ticket. 

“I was at home when I scratched the ticket. I rang my husband at work to tell him what I’d won and told me to stop joking around!” the winner exclaimed. 

“I wasn’t able to claim the top prize straight away so I hid the ticket but after a while I decided to change the hiding spot! 

“I also took a photo of the winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket and I kept looking at it!” 

The overjoyed winner said it’s going to take some time to get used to the idea of receiving $5,000 every month for 10 years. 

“I think it’ll sink in maybe five years into it!” the winner joked. 

The winning Instant Scratch-Its $3 Live the Life ticket was purchased from Dubbo City Newsagency, Shop 4, 169 Macquarie Street in Dubbo.
