Narangba woman “counting her lucky stars” after $10,000 Instant Scratch-Its win
A young Narangba woman says she’s “counting her lucky stars” after being handed a $10,000 winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket at a party. The top prize winning $1 ticket was purchased at Charmed Planet, Shop 1, 261 Victoria Avenue, Redcliffe.
Sharing her excitement with our team on Friday, the winner revealed she couldn’t quite believe her luck.
“I was at my friend’s house warming party on the weekend and another guest had brought over a bunch of Instant Scratch-Its to share around with everyone to celebrate,” she explained.
“There was probably around 40 people at the party so I really feel incredibly lucky that I was passed the winning ticket!
“I’ve been counting my lucky stars!
“We all scratched the tickets then and there at the party but I really didn’t think I had actually won $10,000.
“I kept passing it around for everyone to check, then I put it away for a few days.
“I’ve kept it in a book all week until I could come in and confirm that it really was the winning ticket!”
The Brisbane resident said she’d be celebrating her win with everyone who was at the party.
“I think after being at the party with everyone, and being the one who got the winning ticket I’ll celebrate with them!” she laughed.
“I think it’s my shout!
“I might spoil myself with a holiday or something like that!”
Charmed Planet owner Jennifer Mules said this was the first top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket the outlet had sold.
“I’m so happy to know one of our customers has won this amazing prize!” she exclaimed.
“Instant Scratch-Its are so popular at our store and we love sharing the excitement with our customers when they win any prize, so to sell the top prize is just great!
“All the best to the winner!”
