Friday 22 May, 2014 - A Booval man couldn’t believe his luck when he discovered that his two non-winning Instant Scratch-Its $5 Set for Life tickets had won him two second chance prizes totalling $20,000!
The man’s winning streak is all thanks to Golden Casket’s Scratch eClub second chance draws with the unexpected news of his first win coming after the March monthly draw.
“I was so excited when I found out about my first $10,000 win. I never imagined it would happen to me again,” he said.
His second win was the result of a special promotion which gave Scratch eClub members with non-winning $5 Set for Life tickets the chance to win one of twelve $10,000 prizes drawn weekly.
“Would you believe it, both of the Instant Scratch-Its that won me $10,000 were $5 Set for Life tickets,” he laughed.
The local man joined the Scratch eClub last year and couldn’t be happier with his results.
“I read about the monthly second chance draws on the back of the ticket and thought I’d give it a try,” he told a Golden Casket official.
“It’s definitely worked out well for me!” he exclaimed.
The excited winner said he already knows what he’ll be spending his double windfall on.
“When I started entering my non-winning tickets I decided if I won I’d buy myself a jet ski so that’s exactly what I’m going to do,” he said smiling.
Every month Scratch eClub members are given the chance to turn their eligible non-winning Instant Scratch-Its tickets into a winner. Scratch eClub is free to join and there are often a number of prizes to be won each month.
Players can register as a Scratch eClub member online at www.scratcheclub.com.
Golden Casket Public Relations Manager Elissa Lewis said that the Scratch eClub Monthly Second Chance Draws are a great way for members to have additional chances to win.
“Scratch eClub members just need to enter their eligible non-winning Instant Scratch-Its tickets into the Monthly Second Chance Draw for another chance to win,” Ms Lewis said.
“Just don’t forget to hold onto your ticket, you will need it to claim your prize,” she added.
“There’s just days left before the May draw closes on the 31st so don’t forget to enter for the chance to win $10,000 this month!”
