Words by Nick Crockford

For the next 10 years, a North Lakes player will get an extra $1000 in their bank account every week after scoring a top prize on their Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

The top prize winning $10 Live the Life ticket was bought at Paperboxx North Lakes, Shop 1173-1174 Westfield Northlakes.

How the winner plans to enjoy their instant windfall will be a mystery as they have chosen to remain anonymous and celebrate in private.

Over the moon

However, Paperboxx North Lakes owner Mung Lam said the team was over the moon for their instant winner.

“Oh wow! How cool is that?” Mung said. “We’ll definitely be celebrating this win in our store this week. We hope this is the beginning of many more!

“We’re so ecstatic for our winner. It’s such a fantastic prize, especially because it’s paid over 10 years.

“Congratulations to our winner. We hope they enjoy their prize for years to come.”
