Ipswich woman wins Instant Scratch-Its top prize!

Thursday 20 March 2014 - An Ipswich woman said she’ll never pay rent again after scratching the top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $5 ticket. 

The ecstatic winner said she never expected to win the top prize of $250,000 a year for 4 years on the Instant Scratch-Its Set for Life ticket.

“I actually gave the ticket to my husband to scratch,” the excited winner explained. 

“After a minute or so he said to me, ‘You’ll never guess what?’ and I said, ‘What that I haven’t won anything.’ “I just couldn’t believe it when he showed me that we had the winning ticket. 

“We never win anything! I don’t care if I never win anything again. This is just incredible!” 

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said she had one item on her shopping list. 

“We’re currently renting so we’ll now be able to buy a family home. I don’t ever want to pay rent again!” 

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its Set for Life ticket was purchased at News Extra Yamanto, Shop 8 in Yamanto Shopping Village, 512 Warwick Road in Yamanto.
