Rockhampton family win big with Instant Scratch-Its
A ROCKHAMPTON family will receive $1000 a week for five years after scratching one of the four top prizes on an Instant Scratch-Its $5 Live the Life Black ticket.
The family, who wish to remain anonymous, said teamwork helped their win.
"Mum actually bought the ticket and scratched it," the winning daughter explained.
"She thought she'd won, but when she told Dad he said there was no way they could have won, so she popped the ticket in a drawer.
"It wasn't until a few weeks later when I was visiting that Mum told me, so I checked the ticket and discovered she was right; she had scratched the top prize.
"Mum and Dad wanted to share the prize money with me because they said they never would have discovered they had won if I hadn't checked their ticket.
"My parents have always struggled so it's amazing to see them more relaxed."
The winning ticket was purchased at The Lucky Charm Rockhampton, Shop 23 in Northside Plaza, Musgrave St in Rockhampton.
