Dads can play a special role in spreading joy to Aussie winners. Whether they gift the winning ticket, are there to celebrate in the moment, or make plans to use their windfall to provide for their family, it’s clear fathers all over the country love to share in the delight of that winning feeling.  

To celebrate Father’s Day and the launch of the new Instant Scratch-Its $10 Live the Life ticket, we’re looking back at the dads who’ve been part of some incredible winning moments. 

Family first
Winners have all sorts of plans for how they’ll use their prize, but for a Sydney father who won $10,000 on a $1 Dream Big Instant Scratch-Its ticket last year, family was his top priority.   

“This is a life-changing win for my family. I haven’t seen them in months since I moved to Sydney for work,” he said.

“My kids and my wife don’t live in Sydney yet. I miss them so much. They’ve been planning to move, but this will definitely help speed up the process.

The hardworking New South Wales man was excited to think how his Instant Scratch-Its windfall would bring his family together again.  

Thanks, dad! 
Even when dads haven’t been the one holding the winning ticket, they’ve still played an important part in the winning experience. 

One Cheltenham woman had her dad to thank for her $25,000 Instant Scratch-It win, explaining her father had bought her the winning ticket. 

“My Dad actually bought it for me. He’s been playing Instant Scratch-Its for years so he’s just happy we’ve had a win!” 

The woman’s father seems to have imparted a generous spirit as the thrilled winner said she would be sharing the prize with her family. 

“It was a gift from a family member, so everyone is going to get a little slice. It will make a difference to everyone’s life.”

Best Father’s Day ever 
We hear plenty of winners’ stories that show how generous dads can be, so it’s great to know they get treated too! 

Last year, a North Rockhampton man had the best Father’s Day ever when his family gifted him a $200,000 Instant Scratch-Its windfall. 

The thrilled dad revealed his top-prize winning ticket was given to him by his son and daughter-in-law. 

“It was so exciting, I just couldn’t believe it. We called our kids straight away and told them. They were so happy for us!” he said. 

The family man was eager to celebrate and share his prize with loved ones. 

“I can’t wait to take all the kids out for dinner and celebrate with them. Of course, I will share it with my three children and their families.”
