Caboolture woman’s “terrible week” turned around by $10,000 Instant Scratch-Its win
A Caboolture woman says her week was turned around the moment she scratched her Instant Scratch-Its ticket to discover she’d won a $10,000 prize.
The top prize winning $1 Tic Tac Go was purchased at SG Bakery Café, Shop T03, Pumicestone Shopping Centre, 1 Ardrossan Road, Caboolture.
Confirming her prize with us this morning, the Moreton Bay region resident said she was still buzzing from the win.
“I scratched the ticket yesterday afternoon,” she explained.
“I was sitting down for a coffee and one by one I scratched the symbols.
“I couldn’t believe it!
“I’d had the worst start to the week. It had been terrible, so you can just imagine how much this cheered me up!
“It was so so nice. It’s going to turn my week around in a big way.
“I couldn’t be more grateful.”
When asked how she planned to enjoy her prize, she had one thing in mind.
“Well there’s a big pile of dirt that’s been in my front yard for months,” she began to explain.
“My husband has been promising me for almost a year that he will do some landscaping.
“Now I will just pay someone to do it!
“My husband is going to be thrilled that he’s off the hook.”
SG Bakery Café manager Janice Gardiner said it was the second top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket the outlet has sold in the past week.
“We’re certainly on a roll!” she laughed.
“We just sold a top prize winning Live the Life ticket to one of our customers.
“We were so excited about that and it’s amazing to do it again.
“It’s fantastic to see these prizes go to local and regular customers.
“We certainly hope it continues.”
