A Sutherland mum is looking forward to a family holiday they’ll never forget after unwrapping a $150,000 Instant Scratch-Its prize on Boxing Day. 

The top prize winning $10 Countdown to Christmas Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Sutherland Newsagency, 796 Old Princes Highway, Sutherland. 

“It’s very exciting. We actually think we bought some Instant Scratch-Its tickets a couple of weeks ago but stuck them to one side and forgot about them,” the winning mum explained. 

“But then on Boxing Day, we found them again, and I said, ‘give me one, and I’ll scratch it’. 

“We joked that maybe one would have a big prize. Then when I scratched it, we all fell apart. 

“It made for a very nice Boxing Day. This is just the cream on the top of a great Christmas. 

“We’ll probably use the prize to have a luxurious family holiday. It’s been a long time since we’ve had one, and long overdue. 

“It would be lovely to think this win is the start of lots of good things for us in 2022.”
