Instant Scratch-Its top prize winner takes it up a gear!

An 18 year old Sydney man is on the fast track to owning his first car after scratching a $10,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $1.10 ticket.

The winner was left speechless after he discovered he’d won $10,000 in an instant.

“I was at home on a Friday night when I scratched my ticket,” the happy winner explained.

“My sister was sitting next to me watching and I’d barely finished scratching my ticket when she screamed out, ‘You’ve won! You’ve won!’

“I couldn’t believe it when I took a closer look at my ticket and saw I’d won $10,000!

“Because I’d scratched my ticket on Friday night, I couldn’t claim my prize until Monday so I ended up hiding my ticket in a drawer at home.

“I know exactly what I’ll do with my $10,000 – I’m going to put it towards my car and pay a big chunk off my loan.”

The overwhelmed winner has chosen to remain anonymous.

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its $1.10 ticket was purchased at Woolworths Petrol - Plumpton, 260 Jersey Road in Plumpton.
