Forget chook raffles, a Maryborough man is celebrating his most exciting win yet – a $100,000 Instant Scratch-Its prize. 

The top prize winning $5 ticket was purchased at News & Gifts Station Square, Shop 30-31 Station Square, 142 Lennox Street, Maryborough. 

Sharing his joy with us this morning, the regular player said he was still in disbelief. 

“I’ve never even won a chook raffle!” he laughed. 

“So it was such a shock. I still am struggling to believe my good fortune. 

“I’m a regular player. I like to buy a few scratchies when I do the grocery shopping but I’ve never won anything even close to this! 

“It was such an exciting surprise when I got home and scratched it over a cup of tea and quickly saw I’d won $100,000. 

“It was such great news!” 

With $100,000 coming his way, the man said it would boost his retirement in a big way. 

“It will be big help,” he declared. 

“I’m going to pay some bills and just get on top of things. 

“I have plenty of spare time to enjoy it.”
