Lunchtime larrikins win $20,000 on Instant Scratch-Its ticket!

Thursday 12 March 2015 - Two larrikin tradies from Glenelg decided to take the rest of the day off work after scratching the $20,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $1 ticket while eating their lunch!

The winners, known to their mates as ‘Rhino’ and ‘Jono’, said they have been purchasing Instant Scratch-Its tickets at their local SA Lotteries outlet every lunchtime for around a month before they landed their big win!

“I only told ‘Rhino’ this morning that we had to win the $20,000 top prize so that we could take the rest of the day off work!” Jono explained.

“We have been buying a few Instant Scratch-Its $1 tickets every day at lunchtime for a month and reinvesting the winnings from each day to keep our fun going.

“We never thought we’d scratch a top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket so when we saw that we had won $20,000, we sprinted up to the top of the building site and started showing our winning ticket off to the other workers!”

The winners, who happily split the $20,000 top prize in half, have some pragmatic plans for their winnings.

“I am going to finish off some home renovations and Rhino will be able to get on top of his mortgage repayments!”

The winning ticket was sold at BP On-The Run Reynella at 133-135 Old South Road in Reynella.
