Lifestyle boost for Redcliffe's Instant Scratch-Its winner!

A man in his 50s from Redcliffe admitted he almost passed out after scratching one of the multiple top prizes on a $10 Live the Life Gold Instant Scratch-Its ticket – an ongoing prize of $2,500 a week for the next 5 years!

The surprised man said the win would be a lifestyle boost that couldn’t have come at a better time.

“I still can’t believe it, it’s still sinking in!” the man exclaimed.

“You wouldn’t believe it but everything’s been on the blink lately – the washing machine and the vacuum cleaner! I wasn’t exactly ‘living the life’.

“So I said ‘Righto I’ll give the Live the Life ticket a crack and see what happens!’

“When I got home I scratched everything off the ticket and there were three live the life symbols staring at me and I thought ‘I think I’ve won something here!’ so I headed back over to the newsagency and they agreed that it looked as if I’d won one of the top prizes of $2,500 a week for the next five years!

“I’m fairly certain I nearly passed out at that point!” he laughed.

The happy man admitted he was still getting his head around the idea of having an extra $2,500 to spend each week.

“Now that I’ve claimed the prize and got my first few prize instalments, I got some cash out at the ATM and I looked at the receipt and there it was $2,500 – It’s going to take some getting used to that each week there will be another top up like that!” he exclaimed.

“It’s the lifestyle boost I needed. For starters, with my first instalment, I’ll replace the washing machine and the vacuum cleaner – all brand new ones!

“And I think I might go on a relaxing holiday to visit some family while I’m at it!”

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased the top prize winning Live the Life Gold ticket at The Lucky Charm Redcliffe, Shop 7B in the Blue Water Shopping Centre on 20 Anzac Avenue, Redcliffe.

Annette Ellison is the owner of The Lucky Charm Redcliffe and is delighted to have sold one of the two top prizes on the $10 Live the Life Gold Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

“We couldn’t be happier for our winning customer! He’s a lovely bloke and a regular customer of ours,” Ms Ellison said.

“He was very excited when he realised he’d won one of the two top prizes and would now be receiving $2,500 a week for the next five years – It would change the life of anybody, $2,500 a week.

“Congratulations again to our winner and we hope you’re enjoying living the life!”
