A Mount Warren Park man is thanking his $100,000 instant windfall on his decision to have a “red hot go” at an Instant Scratch-Its ticket that caught his eye.
The Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at TSG Mount Warren News, Shop 4, 20-30 Mt Warren Boulevard, Mount Warren Park.
Sharing his excitement with us, the Queensland winner said the windfall came as a complete surprise.
“I was over the moon! I couldn’t believe it,” he exclaimed.
“I walked into the newsagency ready to purchase an Instant Scratch-Its ticket.
“I saw one on display that caught my eye, so I decided to give it a red hot go and grabbed some.
“Later that day, I went home to scratch them with my wife. It came to my attention that I won $100,000 on the last ticket we scratched!
“We were both shocked. I had to look three times to make sure it was real.
When asked how he planned to enjoy his $100,000 prize, the jubilant bloke said he was still too blown away to make any concrete plans.
“I’m really not sure what I’ll spend the money on. I’m too bewildered to think of anything at this stage,” he revealed.
“We hope to celebrate the win sometime soon.”
