Woman turns $2 into $25,000!

Thursday 21 February, 2013 - A woman from the eastern suburbs of Brisbane has scored $25,000 thanks to her $2 Cosmic Bingo Scratch-Its ticket and Golden Casket’s Scratch eClub Second Chance draw.

The woman, who regularly enters the Scratch eClub Second Chance draw, could not believe her luck when she discovered the news of her $25,000 windfall.

“To win $25,000 on a second chance draw is amazing!” she exclaimed.

“I heard about the draws a little over a year ago so I started entering them every month.

“I remember thinking, “Why not - Somebody has to win?” although I never actually expected it to be me.

“I even get a little bit excited when I don’t win on my Scratch-Its ticket now because it means I can enter the draw.”

The woman and her husband have already used most of the money to pay off some debts.

“The money has come at such a great time, I mean, we don’t need anything extravagant,” she said.

“We just really needed the money to pay off the credit cards and get a bit ahead.”

Every month Scratch eClub members are given the chance to turn their eligible non-winning Golden Casket Scratch-its ticket into a winner. Scratch eClub is free to join and there are often a number of prizes to be won each month.

Players simply need to register as a Scratch eClub member online at www.scratcheclub.com/qld.

Golden Casket Public Relations Manager Elissa Lewis said that the Scratch eClub monthly second chance draws are a great way for member to have additional chances to win.

“Scratch eClub members just need to enter their eligible non-winning Golden Casket Instant Scratch-Its tickets into the monthly second chance draw for another chance to win,” Ms Lewis said.

“Just don’t forget to hold onto your ticket, you will need it to claim your prize,” she added.

“There’s $10,000 up for grabs in the February draw so get scratching!”
