Wedding bell bliss for Instant Scratch-Its top prize winner!

A young Sydney woman received an unexpected early $10,000 wedding gift when she scratched the top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $1.10 ticket.

The winner in her early 20s is engaged and said the instant prize will be a great kick-start to married life for her and her fiancé.

“I still can’t quite believe it!” the excited winner exclaimed.

“I walk past the newsagency all the time and quite often I’ll stop and grab myself a couple of scratchies. “

On this occasion I was buying a $5 and $4 scratchie but the minimum purchase for EFTPOS was $10 so I decided I’d also get a $1.10 ticket. “

The staff member asked which one of the $1.10 scratchies I’d like and I said to her that I didn’t mind and she could just pick one for me.

“I scratched my ticket back at my office and after I spotted I’d won the top prize, I handed the ticket to my boss who was standing near me and asked, ‘Is this right? Have I won?’.

“I’m getting married next year and my fiancé and I have just bought our first home so this win couldn’t be more perfectly timed! It’ll be a massive help for us and we’re just so grateful.”

The Instant Scratch-Its top prize winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $1.10 ticket was purchased at Greystanes Centre Newsagency, Shop 19 in Greystanes Shopping Mall, 665 – 699 Merrylands Road in Greystanes.

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