Maroochydore man’s “mystery” Instant Scratch-Its ticket yields $24,000 Christmas bounty
A Maroochydore man is unsure who gave him the Instant Scratch-Its ticket for Christmas, but he’s forever grateful after it revealed a $24,000 prize.
The top prize winning $5 24K Gold Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at David Low Way News, Shop 7, North Shore Shopping Centre, 722 - 728 David Low Way, Pacific Paradise.
“I got this for Christmas... but I’m not sure who from. It’s a bit of a mystery,” the Sunshine Coast winner shared.
“Our family and friends all buy Instant Scratch-Its tickets for each other at Christmas, so I don’t really know who it was.
“I’m feeling pretty lucky really to have been given it.
“I didn’t really believe it when I first scratched it on Christmas Day. I just thought, ‘Wow!’.
“It’s a nice gift. I think that pretty much tops it as far as gifts go.
“I don’t know what I’m going to do with that prize just yet. I’ll probably do something sensible, like save it for the future.
“It’s certainly something I’m looking forward to enjoying in 2022.”
