Twin Instant Scratch-Its top prize wins in Banyo!

It was a case of déjà vu for a Golden Casket outlet on Brisbane’s northside after it sold not one but two top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its tickets in recent weeks.

The two top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its tickets were purchased at Banyo Newsagency, 276 St Vincents Road in Banyo.

World trip on the horizon for top prize winner!

A Banyo woman is busy planning the trip of a lifetime around the world with her husband after she scratched one of the multiple top prizes on an Instant Scratch-Its $5 Live the Life Black ticket.

The overjoyed winner was shocked when her unexpected birthday gift won a top prize of $1,000 a week for the next five years!

“A lovely neighbour on our street gave me a birthday card with the ticket inside,” the excited winner explained.

“I was so touched that she’d not only given me a birthday card but also a scratchie so I called her straight away to thank her. She was eager to find out if I’d scratched the ticket but I said I hadn’t yet.

“Later that day, I sat down to scratch my birthday ticket and when I spotted three Live the Life symbols, I really didn’t believe it! I turned the ticket over and read the instructions and I even called out to my daughter to come and check my ticket before she announced I really had won!

“I was in quite a state after that. I called my husband at work and could barely get the words out. I messaged him a picture of the scratchie so he could see it!

“When we told our wonderful neighbour that her birthday gift to me had won the top prize, she was just so happy that we were happy!

“This win means all of those clichés to us – it’s life-changing, it’s a dream come true. We’ll use some of the top prize to pay off our mortgage quicker and we’ll save the rest for our dream around the world holiday!”

A hard day’s work for Instant Scratch-Its winner!

A hard-working woman from Brisbane’s northside received an unexpected boost to her pay packet after scratching one of the multiple top prizes on an Instant Scratch-Its $5 Crosswords ticket.

The regular Instant Scratch-Its player said she was sitting down at work when she scratched the $100,000 top prize.

“I was enjoying a quick cup of coffee before I started work when I scratched my ticket,” the excited winner explained.

“I was so happy when I saw that I’d won $100,000! I must admit all I wanted to do was go home but I somehow managed to put in a full day at work.

“When I did finally get home, the first thing I did when I walked through the door was jump up and down and let all that excitement out!

“I’m going to make my family happy and share my instant prize with them.”
