Lismore woman wins $50,000 in an instant!

Tuesday 5 April 2016 - A trip down memory lane has landed one Lismore woman $50,000 after she scratched the top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $4 ticket.

The ecstatic winner said she decided to buy the Instant Scratch-Its ticket because it sparked a fond memory from her younger days.

“I was in the newsagency and that ticket caught my eye because years ago I used to play a video game called Lady Bug,” the happy winner explained.

“So I decided to buy myself a few Ladybug scratchies and I headed home. It wasn’t until the next day that I sat down and scratched my tickets.

“I really thought my eyes were playing tricks on me at first so I got the entire family to check my ticket to make sure I had won $50,000!

“I’ve put my instant windfall in the bank and that’s where I’ll leave it for a while. I’ll have it there for a rainy day which is a nice feeling!”

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $4 ticket was purchased at Goonellabah Newsagency, Shop 3 in Goonellabah Village Shopping Centre, Simeoni Drive in Goonellabah.
