Gippsland man jumps for joy after $25,000 Instant Scratch-Its win!

Thursday 10 September 2015 - A young man in his 20’s from a small town in West Gippsland was literally jumping for joy when he realised he had scratched the $25,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $1 ticket.

The happy winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, said his $25,000 instant win lifted his spirits.

“I’d been bed-ridden due to a leg injury and because I couldn’t do much I was bored out of my brain! So I asked my mum to pick me up a few Instant Scratch-Its tickets for a little amusement!” he explained.

“She must have had the lucky touch because the second-last ticket I scratched had the top prize!

“When I realised I’d won $25,000, I jumped around the lounge room on my poor leg – but I couldn’t help it!” he laughed.

“I’m going to put the money away to save towards buying my own block of land.”

The $25,000 top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $1 ticket was purchased at Lucky Link Lotto, Shop 1, 13 Palmerston Street in Warragul.

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