A Lismore dad is excited to take his kids on a shopping spree after scoring one of the top prizes on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket. 

The top prize winning $5 Crosswords Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Lismore Central Newspro, Shops T10 Lismore Central Shopping Centre, Lismore. 

Sharing his joy with us this morning, the hardworking man explained how he scratched the winning ticket while he was having a break at work. 

“I was having a busy day at work and so I decided to have a quick break and have a cup of tea and scratch the ticket I’d bought earlier,” he explained. 

“I was just scratching away when I saw I won $100,000. I didn’t believe it!

“When I went home I had my family check it and they told me it was true. 

“It is great! You don’t often have one hundred thousand dollars just come along, so this is amazing. 

“I am definitely going to celebrate with my family when the money is in my account.” 

When asked how he planned to enjoy his prize, the family man said he would put it to good use. 

“I don’t want to waste it. I will put it to in the bank and use it when we need it,” he shared. 

“We are a work, work, work family so this will just help us relax a bit. 

“It will take some stress away. 

“I will take my kids on a shopping spree though, and let them pick out some things they want! 

“I might buy a few little toys for myself as well.”
