Foster dad keeps his cool over $100,000 Instant Scratch-Its
A Foster man has admitted he remained surprisingly calm and collected when discovering his $100,000 top prize win on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket earlier this week.
His winning $5 Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Pulhams Furniture & Carpet, 13 Main Street, Foster.
“It’s a nice little bonus!” he exclaimed.
“I was very calm when I discovered the win and even the team member at the local store said the same thing.
“He said to me, ‘You’re too calm and collected!”.
“I knew I had won something, but I wasn’t exactly sure how much I’d won until I had visited The Lott head office for confirmation.
“I’ve never won anything in my life. It’s a nice feeling!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his instant prize of $100,000, the Victorian retiree revealed he would save it for a rainy day.
“I’m known to be quite generous. I’m a giver, not a taker and my daughter has been on my back to save the prize, so I think I’ll take her advice!” he laughed.
“I’ll put it in the bank account, and it will be a nice boost to my retirement.”
