Southside woman wins Instant Scratch-Its top prize!

Wednesday 17 July, 2013 - A Brisbane woman from the Southern suburbs will “Live the Life” after scratching a top prize worth $600,000 on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket! 

The deliriously happy winner explained to Golden Casket that she couldn’t contain her excitement after winning the top prize of $5,000 a month for 10 years on the Instant Scratch-Its $3 Live the Life ticket. 

“I was sitting in the car and I just had to tell someone. I jumped out of the car just as some builders were walking past,” the ecstatic winner explained. 

“I screamed at them that I’d just won on my Instant Scratch-Its ticket and one of the guys replied, ‘Don’t tell anybody!’ 

“I then called my Mum to let her know and she told me to make sure I drove carefully and didn’t have an accident in the car. I said to her, ‘Well the Instant Scratch-Its ticket is hidden in my clothing so that’s where you’ll find it if I do have a crash!’” the winner joked. 

The excited winner, who will receive $5,000 a month for 10 years, said she knows exactly where some of her winnings will go. 

“It’ll go on the mortgage every month. I’m also going to take a holiday. I haven’t had a holiday in about 14 years. This is so wonderful!”
