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.
