Monday 3 March, 2014 - A man in his 20s said he wants to repay those who’ve helped him by sharing some of his $25,000 Instant Scratch-Its windfall.
The winner said he cried tears of joy when he realised he’d won the top prize on his Instant Scratch-Its $1 ticket.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes when I first scratched the ticket!” the winner exclaimed.
“I even went to a nearby newsagent to get them to confirm what I was seeing; that I had a winning ticket.”
The happy winner said once he finally believed he had the top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket, he couldn’t part with it.
“I even slept with my winning ticket in my pocket until I could claim my prize!” he laughed.
“Now I’m going to go on a holiday and help those people who’ve helped me in the past.”
The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $1 ticket was purchased at Labrador Park Newsagency, Shop 1-2, 100 Brisbane Road in Labrador.
It could happen in an Instant. It could happen to you.
