Fulham Gardens biker ready to make tracks after scoring Instant Scratch-Its top prize
A Fulham Gardens man is looking forward to making tracks on a new motorcycle after scoring one of the top prizes of $1,000 a week for five years on a $5 Live the Life Instant Scratch-Its ticket.
The winning ticket was purchased at OTR Brompton, 73-77 Torrens Road, Brompton. Sharing his joy with us this morning, the happy winner recounted his life-changing discovery.
“I stopped at the OTR Brompton to grab some fuel and picked up some Instant Scratch-Its while I was there,” he explained.
“I usually grab a couple of tickets whenever I fill up. I normally buy a $5 Crossword or something like that but I thought I’d try a Live the Life ticket instead.
“I was pulled over to the side of the road while I waited for a friend and so I decided to scratch it then.
“When I scratched it and saw that I had the three Live the Life symbols I couldn’t believe it.
“It was dark and I didn’t have my glasses on so I had to check it about a million times.
“It wasn’t until I scanned it the next time I was at the outlet and they told me I was a winner that I believed I had won.”
When asked how he planned to Live the Life with $1,000 a week for the next five years, the motorcycle fanatic said he had one thing on his mind.
“I’ll be buying myself a top of the range motorbike!” he declared.
“I’ve been eyeing one off for a while now so I’ll get myself a new bike and then I’ll probably save the rest.
“It will be a nice bonus to enjoy!”
OTR Brompton spokesperson Kim Wimshurst said the team was so excited to see one of their customers win.
“Our OTR team is thrilled to hear that one of our customers has won at our OTR stores,” she said.
“Congratulations from OTR to our winner! We wish them all the very best with their prize.”
