Instant Scratch-Its top prize winner brings in New Year with champagne and seafood!

Monday 19 January 2015 - A long-standing family tradition of buying small and inexpensive gifts as Christmas stocking stuffers proved a sterling success for a young mum from New South Wales after she won $100,000 on an Instant Scratch-Its $5 Sparkling Cash ticket!

Despite winning the top prize, the winner said she left the winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket lying on her kitchen shelf for five days.

“I didn’t want to get too excited as I was frantic with all the typical Christmas Day activities!” the winner explained.

“My husband and I were stunned when we discovered we’d won $100,000 but we agreed to put the winning ticket away and check it after Christmas.

“We left it for five days before we finally went to a newsagent and verified that we really had won on our Instant Scratch-Its ticket!”

The young mum said she has no grand plans for her big win other than to use it to help out with her kids and to invest it wisely.

“We had a lovely New Year’s Eve and we indulged in some fancy champagne and seafood but that is about the extent of it.”

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased from Heagney’s Plaza News located at Armidale Plaza on Beardy St, Armidale.
