Central Queensland couple scratch $250,000 top prize!

Tuesday 7 January 2014 - A Central Queensland couple have said they can tick ‘being debt free’ off their New Year’s resolutions list after recently scratching the $250,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $5 ticket. 

The winners said they were in shock when they realised they’d scratched a quarter of a million dollars on the Instant Scratch-Its ticket in the lead up to New Year’s Eve. 

“It’s just an incredible feeling. We are still having trouble believing that we have won. This prize is the best start we could imagine to 2014!” one of the winners excitedly exclaimed. 

“We’ll use our Instant Scratch-Its prize to pay off our mortgage and be debt free in 2014. That’s a great one to tick off our New Year’s resolutions list!” 

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $5 ticket was purchased at NewsXpress Mount Morgan, 45 Morgan Street in Mount Morgan.
