Wednesday 23 April 2014 - A Redbank man is in the market for a family home after he recently scratched the top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $2 ticket!
The winner said he only bought the winning ticket on the spur of the moment because he had some loose change in his pocket.
“I bought a few Instant Scratch-Its late in the afternoon. When I got home I put them on the kitchen table and that’s where they sat all night!” the winner exclaimed.
“I finally scratched the tickets the next morning. I won $2 on the first Instant Scratch-Its ticket and thought that was great.
“Then I scratched the second ticket and I was stunned when I saw I’d won the $100,000 top prize! It was the best start to the day ever!”
The overjoyed winner said his instant windfall couldn’t have come at a better time.
“We’ve been talking about saving a deposit to buy a family home. Now we have that deposit, we’ll start house hunting!”
The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $2 ticket was purchased at Collingwood Park Newsagency, Shop 110 on level 1 in Redbank Plaza Shopping Centre, 1 Collingwood Drive in Redbank.
