Life goals a step closer for Tamborine Mountain woman after $10,000 Instant Scratch-Its win!

A Tamborine Mountain woman has excitedly framed a photocopy of the $1 Instant Scratch-Its ticket that recently landed her $10,000 and moved her a step closer to achieving her life goals.

The overjoyed woman told Golden Casket officials she was “beside herself” when she scratched one of the top prizes on the $1 Instant Scratch-Its ticket she bought from North Tamborine Newsagency, Shop B2, 17-27 Main Western Road, North Tamborine.

“It was just wonderful. You can’t believe how much of a difference it has made to my life,” the winner exclaimed.

“I regularly buy Instant Scratch-Its and usually I win a little and buy the next ticket.

“I couldn’t believe it when I scratched this ticket. I was beside myself. I said ‘Oh my God’ and a few other words!

“I’ve photocopied the winning ticket and I’ve got that framed. I look at it to remind myself that I’ve won. It’s like I’ve got to pinch myself!

“The newsagency owners were lovely. They were tickled pink for me. We just all made screaming noises and they were really happy for me.”

The thrilled woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, explained the windfall had moved her a step closer to achieving some of her long-held life goals, including buying her own home.

“I’m a wonderful woman with a wicked sense of humour!” she laughed.

“My motto is ‘perseverance brings good fortune’ and I feel it’s really worked in this case!

“My goal is to save up for a deposit for my own home. The win also eases the pressure. If I get an electricity or phone bill that’s over the top, I don’t have to stress about it.”

The top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at North Tamborine Newsagency, Shop B2, 17-27 Main Western Road, North Tamborine.

North Tamborine Newsagency owner Janice O’Neill said the outlet was thrilled one of its regular customers had won a top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its. “

It’s the second time we’ve sold a top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket. The last one was about six years ago,” she said.

“Hopefully there’s plenty more wins in store for our customers!

“We’re so happy one of our local customers won and that we got to share in the experience of winning with her. She’s lovely and a real character. I hope she enjoys her windfall.”
