Holiday on the horizon for Instant Scratch-Its top prize winner!

Tuesday 23 February 2016 - The Year of the Monkey is already proving to be prosperous for a Newcastle woman after she scratched one of the eight top prizes on an Instant Scratch-Its $2 Year of the Monkey ticket.

There’s no need for a New Year prediction, the woman in her 20s said she’ll definitely be using her $8,000 windfall to treat herself to a very relaxing holiday in 2016!

“I’d actually had a run of good luck! I’d won on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket a few days before and I used my winnings to buy a few more tickets,” the excited winner explained.

“I was on my tea break at work when I decided to scratch my ticket. When I saw that I’d won an $8,000 top prize, I nearly fell off my stool! I can say it was very, very hard to focus on work for the rest of the day!

“This prize money will be a welcomed boost to my bank balance! I’ll definitely use my instant windfall to pay for a holiday – I think I might go on a cruise.”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $2 Year of the Monkey ticket was purchased at Edgeworth NewsExtra, Shop 9, 720 Main Road in Edgeworth.
