Happy Valley couple delighted by Instant Scratch-Its $200,000 win!

Wednesday 4 May 2016 - There’s a pair of extra happy faces in Adelaide’s Happy Valley after a couple scratched a $200,000 top prize on a $5 Instant Scratch-Its ticket!

The Happy Valley couple, who wish to remain anonymous, said that it has taken them weeks to come down to earth after realising they had revealed the matching winning symbols on their Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

“We were at home sitting at the dining table when I scratched off the panels and saw we’d won the top prize of $200,000 and all I could do was curse and curse,” the man admitted.

“Then we just sat there staring at the ticket and then staring at each other with this look of bewilderment on our faces!

“This windfall is really going to change our lives! We’re pretty level headed so even though it’s a once-in-a-lifetime strike of luck, we hope that if we play our cards right and make the money work for us, it could last us a lifetime!

“We’ll be considering putting the prize money towards a deposit on an investment property for our future.”

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $5 ticket was purchased at Seaford Newsagency, Shop 17 in the Seaford Shopping Centre on the corner of Commercial Road and The Parade.

The latest range of Instant Scratch-its tickets are available now at SA Lotteries outlets.
