Wednesday 22 January, 2014 - A man from Rockhampton said his New Year’s Eve celebrations kicked off early after he scratched the $100,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $2 ticket.
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, told Golden Casket the win on New Year’s Eve was more spectacular than any fireworks display!
“After I finished doing some shopping, I grabbed a couple of Instant Scratch-Its tickets,” the excited winner explained.
“After I scratched the tickets, I nearly threw my winning ticket out because I didn’t have my glasses on and didn’t think I’d won.
“I don’t know why but I decided to keep the ticket and check it again when I had my glasses on. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that I’d scratched $100,000!”
The ecstatic winner said it’s too early to say what he’ll do with his instant windfall.
“I’m just going to leave it in the bank for a little while I think about it.”
The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $2 ticket was purchased at The Lucky Charm Rockhampton, Shop 23 in Northside Plaza, Musgrave Street in North Rockhampton.
