200,000 ways to say happy anniversary!

Wednesday 16 July, 2014 - Flowers may be a traditional wedding anniversary gift but imagine getting a $200,000 present from your spouse! 

A Goulburn woman said she received the ultimate anniversary gift when her husband gave her a $200,000 top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $4 ticket! 

“We always get each other something small on our wedding anniversary,” the overjoyed winner explained. 

“I actually didn’t have the chance to scratch the ticket after I got it so I left it sitting on a chair. My husband got tired of waiting for me to scratch the ticket, so in the end he scratched it out of desperation! 

“After he finished scratching the ticket, he called out to me to come and check it. I just couldn’t believe it when I realised it had won $200,000! I started to cry! 

“You don’t know what this win means for us. It couldn’t have come at a better time.” 

The ecstatic winner said she and her husband plan to share some of their $200,000 instant windfall with their family. 

“We also decided to have a belated wedding anniversary dinner!” the winner added. 

The winning Instant Scratch-Its $4 ticket was purchased at Marketplace Newsagency, Shop 11 in Marketplace, 12-20 Verner Street in Goulburn. 

It can happen in an instant. It could happen to you.
