Sutherland mum unwraps $150,000 Instant Scratch-Its prize on Boxing Day
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.”
