Christmas joy arrives early for $20,000 Instant Scratch-Its winner!

A woman from the north coast of New South Wales is celebrating the joy of Christmas early this year after scratching one of five multiple top prizes of $20,000 on a $2 Instant Scratch-Its Christmas ticket!

The overjoyed woman received the Instant Scratch-Its ticket as a Christmas gift from a family member but confessed she couldn’t wait until Christmas to scratch the Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

“I had the ticket on the kitchen table and as I was sitting there I thought ‘I’ll scratch one of those scratchies now, I can’t wait til Christmas!’” the winner revealed.

“When I scratched the ticket I didn’t believe it! It was just such a thrill!

“I’ve been having a nervous breakdown hoping I was seeing the ticket right and now I know I was – thank you, thank you, thank you!

“Oh, I’m so excited,” the overjoyed winner laughed.

“I’m so thrilled I scratched the ticket when I did – otherwise I would have gone through Christmas and not even known!

“Now it’s confirmed I’ve really got the giggles! Thank you, thank you so much, I’m shaking.

“Oh it’s just so exciting, it’s just wonderful. Now I’ll be able to visit my family for Christmas.”

The generous woman said she would share her instant prize with her family buying them something extra for their Christmas gifts.

“I’ll go out shopping and buy everyone something extra for their gift this year. But I’m going to keep news of my windfall a secret,” the winner shared.

“Oh - It’s just such a thrill!

“I’ll have a glow and no one will know why!”

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, received the winning ticket which was purchased at Albion Park Newsagency, 159 Tongarra Road, Albion Park.
