An Avoca man has scored a life-enhancing $100,000 win on an Instant Scratch-Its purchased from Chippendalls Newsagency.
“I’ve still got butterflies in my stomach! It’s going to take some time to sink in,” the winning man exclaimed when confirming with an official from The Lott.
“I have a feeling this win was meant to happen! It was meant to be me this time.
“It’s going to completely change my life.
“At first, I thought I’d won $50 and I would have been stoked with that!
“Then I kept looking and realised, ‘oh my god, it’s $100,000!’.
“To have a win like this just before Christmas is the best present I could have ever asked for.
“Thanks so much!”
Chippindalls Newsagency Bundaberg manager Amanda Zunker said she was thrilled to hear one of their customers had received an early Christmas present.
“Wow! Hope it was one of our regulars,” she laughed.
“We sold a division one winning entry in Saturday Gold Lotto earlier in the year, but as they say, it’s been a long time between drinks. It’s great to see another big win.
“We wish our winner all the very best with their prize, and how lovely to win at this time of year!”
