A young Bundaberg woman who bought everyone in her family, including herself, Instant Scratch-Its tickets for Christmas, was stunned to discover her ticket revealed a $150,000 prize.

Her winning $10 Jumbo Crosswords Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Lucky Dollar Newsagency, 73 Bourbong Street, Bundaberg.

“It’s kind of crazy!” the winning woman explained us.

“I actually bought a few of these tickets as gifts for my family for Christmas and I also bought myself one.

“Then on Christmas Eve we scratched them.

“At first, I was counting the words and thought I’d won a smaller prize.

“But then we kept checking the ticket and would find an extra word.

“Then I was like, ‘no way! That’s the top prize!’.

“My family didn’t win anything on their tickets, but they were very happy for me.

“It’s quite a boost going into the new year.

“I’ll be debt free and the rest of the prize I’ll use for savings until I get a better idea of how best to use it.”
