$250,000 prize will 'come in handy' for Walcha winner!

Monday 13 May, 2013 - A local Walcha man is celebrating after scratching the $250,000 top prize on a $10 Instant Scratch-Its ticket! 

The happy winner explained to NSW Lotteries that he bought the winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket because he had a spare $10 in his wallet. 

“After I scratched it, I thought I’d won $25,000 but then my wife took a look at the ticket and discovered I’d actually won $250,000!” the winner said. 

“I can tell you this money will come in very handy!” 

The winning $10 Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased from Walcha Newsagency, 25W Fitzroy Street in Walcha. 

Owners Quinton and Karina Titmus are thrilled they’ve sold a top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket. 

“This is the first big prize we’ve sold since we purchased Walcha Newsagency, so it’s very exciting for us. 

“We’re hoping this will be the first of many winners that we can chalk up!”
