Instant Scratch-Its winner to visit the Land of the Rising 'Son'!

Thursday 21 May 2015 - A Brisbane woman said she’d embark on her first overseas trip to Japan after winning one of the $50,000 top prizes on an Instant Scratch-Its $4 ticket!

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was overjoyed to know that she’d be able to visit her son in Japan.

“I got home after buying the weekly groceries and I decided to sit on the stairs outside my home and scratch the Instant Scratch-Its tickets I’d just bought,” the winner explained.

“When I finished, it took me more than a few moments and nervous glances to realise that I’d actually won $50,000!

“I honestly couldn’t believe it! I felt sick in the stomach and I don’t know how many times I checked my ticket.”

The regular Instant Scratch-Its player was unable to put into words how much the win truly meant to her, given she was unable to afford to travel to Japan to see her son get married.

“It’ll be my first time overseas and the first time that I’ll see my son as a married man! I’m still going to live modestly but this win just means that I’ll be able to live a bit more comfortably!”

The winner purchased her top prize Instant Scratch-Its winning ticket at Nextra Carindale News, Shop 2004A in Westfield Carindale, 1151 Creek Rd in Carindale.

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