$25,000 Instant Scratch-Its win proves fitting birthday present!

Monday 9 February 2015 - A Queensland man celebrated the birthday of a lifetime after scratching the $25,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $2 ticket!

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said he was given the Instant Scratch-Its $2 Rich Cafe ticket as a birthday present from his wife which is a long-held tradition between the couple.

"We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw the winning prize amount!" the winner exclaimed.

"We honestly thought there must have been something else that we needed to do to win!"

The regular Instant Scratch-Its player said that he and his wife are still thinking about what they'll do with their instant windfall.

"We just want to take our time and invest or spend the money wisely."

The top prize-winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Keppel Bay News at Shop 3-4 Keppel Bay Plaza, 64 James Street in Yeppoon.
