Thursday 28 February, 2013 - A retired couple turned a spare $2 into a $50,000 windfall after they purchased a winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket in Nabiac.
The Grandparents said they almost tore up their winning ticket but a last-minute double-check revealed they were in fact $50,000 richer!
“My wife scratched the ticket and didn’t realise it was a winner but I told her she should take another look at it before I put it in the bin,” the winner exclaimed.
“We just couldn’t believe it. We’d won $50,000!”
What isn’t a surprise is that these Grandparents plan to use a little of their winnings to spoil their grandchildren.
“We will spoil the grandkids but we’ll also treat ourselves to well-deserved holiday somewhere,” the instant winner explained.
The $50,000 winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket was sold from Old Bank Centre, 19 Nabiac Street, Nabiac.
