Grandmother surprised by $25,000 Instant Scratch-Its win!

Thursday 25 July, 2013 - A grandmother from the Western Downs region is over the moon after she scratched her way to being $25,000 richer with a Golden Casket Instant Scratch-Its $1 ticket! 

The happy winner said the top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket was given to her by her son who often buys her a couple of Instant Scratch-Its tickets. 

“I was sitting at the table not doing much when I decided to scratch the Instant Scratch-Its ticket,” the winner explained. 

“When I realised I’d won $25,000 I said, ‘Well I don’t believe it!’ 

“Later when my son came to the house, I got him to take a look at the Instant Scratch-Its ticket and he also said, ‘I don’t believe it.’ 

“It’s just so wonderful. It really is beautiful.” 

The delighted winner said she has one immediate plan for her $25,000 Instant Scratch-Its windfall. 

“It’s going in the bank. It’ll stay there for when I need it!” 

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $1 ticket was purchased from Tara News, 27 Day Street in Tara.
