Winner set to make waves after Instant Scratch-Its win!

Monday 3 March, 2014 - A Deniliquin woman is planning to use her $20,000 Instant Scratch-Its top prize to buy her husband a ski boat! 

The excited winner said she had trouble believing her Instant Scratch-Its $1.10 ticket that she bought on a whim had won the top prize. 

“I’d been in the newsagency buying a Lotto ticket and decided to use my change to buy a couple of Instant Scratch-Its tickets,” the happy winner explained. 

“I never thought I’d win anything big on my Instant Scratch-Its tickets. I actually decided to scratch them outside the store just in case I won a couple of dollars. 

“After I scratched my winning ticket, I had trouble believing I’d won $20,000! I just kept saying, ‘I don’t think I’ve won. I couldn’t have won!’” 

The winner said she was going to use her $20,000 instant windfall to buy her husband a ski boat. 

“I have a very happy husband right now. He had a ski boat many years ago but had to sell it when we bought our home. 

“I really wanted to use my prize money to buy something that our whole family could enjoy and our friends as well!” 

The winning Instant Scratch-Its $1.10 ticket was purchased at Deniliquin Newsagency and Bookstore, 14 -18 Napier Street in Deniliquin. It can happen in an instant. It could happen to you.
