Wednesday 13 November, 2013 - A couple visiting the Gold Coast will never forget their beach holiday after scratching the top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $3 Live the Life ticket!
The holidaymakers were wearing matching winner’s grins when they claimed their top prize of $5,000 a month for 10 years.
“I went to the newsagency to buy some Instant Scratch-Its tickets and the shop assistant suggested I try the $3 Live the Life ticket,” the winning man explained.
“I ended up buying three and I scratched $6 on the first ticket, the top prize on the second ticket, and I still haven’t scratched the third!
“I’m now going to keep the coin I used to scratch that winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket.”
The excited winners, who will receive $5,000 a month for 10 years, said they’re not sure what they’ll do with their winnings but they are planning to put their feet up more often and relax.
“It was already a great holiday but this has just topped it off. We’ll definitely be back!” the winning woman said.
The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $3 Live the Life ticket was purchased at Surfers Paradise Authorised News, Shops 11 and 12, 2 Elkhorn Avenue in Surfers Paradise.
With the countdown on until Christmas, Golden Casket has released its Instant Scratch-Its Christmas tickets which are perfect for gifts, cards and as a Christmas stocking filler.
