Redland Bay retiree wins $200,000 top prize!

Thursday 10 January, 2013 - A retired engineer from Redland Bay has won the top prize of $200,000 on a $4 Instant Scratch-Its ticket!

The ticket was purchased in Victoria Point and the local winner said his eyes boggled when he scratched the top prize.

“You just stare at that ticket and your eyes go fuzzy, you can’t see properly,” he said, still coming to terms with his windfall.

The winner said he plans to fulfil a few dreams with the prize money.

“Some of it will go straight in the bank, and we’ll use the rest to upgrade the car and finally take a trip around Australia.”

The winning ticket was purchased from The Lucky Charm Victoria Point, Shop 5 in the Library Building, Victoria Point.
