Instant Scratch-Its winner jets off to Japan after big win!

Monday 2 February 2015 - A Queensland man is busy planning his first international holiday to Japan after he scored the $10,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $1 ticket!

The occasional Instant Scratch-Its player said he’d won a divisional prize on his Saturday Gold Lotto ticket and decided to use his winnings to buy an Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

“I was out meeting my daughter for our regular Saturday morning coffee when I decided to go into a nearby newsagency and get an Instant Scratch-Its ticket!” the winner explained.

“We were actually waiting for our coffee when I scratched my winning ticket. My daughter and I couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw that I’d won the $10,000 top prize.

“I’m now planning to travel to Japan! I’ve never been overseas before so I’m over the moon!”

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket from News on Precinct, Shop 12, 12-18 Village Drive in Idalia.
