Tuesday 5 November, 2013 - A man who purchased an Instant Scratch-Its $1.10 ticket at Bondi Junction has an extra $20,000 in his bank account after scratching the top prize!
The regular Instant Scratch-Its player admitted he didn’t jump for joy when he realised he’d scratched the $20,000 top prize, he instead just stared at the Instant Scratch-Its $1.10 ticket in disbelief.
“I went back down to the newsagency and I said to the owner that he’d sold me the wrong ticket,” the winner said.
“Then I handed him the Instant Scratch-Its ticket to check and his eyes popped out of his head!” the winner jokingly added.
The excited winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said he has no immediate plans for his instant windfall. “It’s nice and safe in the bank!” the winner added.
The winning Instant Scratch-Its $1.10 ticket was purchased at Junction Newscafe, 308 Oxford Street in Bondi Junction.
With Christmas just around the corner, NSW Lotteries has released its Instant Scratch-Its Christmas tickets which are perfect for gifts, cards and as a Christmas stocking filler.
