Thursday 28 February, 2013 - A Wynnum father is planning an ‘extravagant camping trip’ after winning $200,000 on a $4 Instant Scratch-Its ticket!
The ticket was purchased in Wynnum North and the local winner said he was enjoying a Friday afternoon beer and listening to the radio when he scratched the top prize.
“I turned to my partner and said ‘take a look at this’ and she nearly fell off the chair when she realised we’d won $200,000!” the winner joked to a Golden Casket official.
“We’ve been guarding that ticket since then with our lives.”
The Grandfather says he’ll now retire a little earlier and he’d also like to help his children and grandchildren with his windfall.
“I’m also going to take an extravagant camping trip. I’ll now be able to get fish and chips every night if I like!” the instant winner said.
The winning $200,000 Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased from Wynnum North Newsagency, Shop 1 at 150 Selina Street, Wynnum North.
