Caboolture man wins Instant Scratch-Its top prize - again!
Words by Nick Crockford

A Caboolture man believes lightning does strike twice after scratching his second top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

His latest big win was a $10,000 prize on a $1 Mow Money ticket bought at The Local Lotto & Gifts, Market Plaza on Morayfield Rd.

Talking to an official from The Lott this morning, the man said he couldn't believe his good fortune.

Couldn't believe it

“I was sitting with a friend when I scratched the ticket,” he explained. “I couldn’t believe it when it looked like I had all the winning symbols.

“This is the second $10,000 prize I’ve won on a scratchie. I never thought I could do it again! I feel very lucky.”

When asked how he thought he might enjoy his second instant windfall, the avid angler explained he’d enjoy it throughout his retirement.

More fishing

“I spent my last prize on a fishing boat,” he explained. “It looks like more fishing for me!”

The Local Lotto & Gifts employee Villy said she was happy for their local and regular customer.

“We’ve sold quite a few big prize winning tickets over the years. Every single win causes plenty of excitement for our staff and customers,” she said.

“It was great to have another win and great to hear it’s a regular customer too. We wish him all the very best with his prize.”

176 winners

In FY21, there were 176 Instant Scratch-Its top prize winners across The Lott’s jurisdictions who collectively took home more than $14.17 million in top prizes.

During this same time, Instant Scratch-Its players had more than 31.2 million wins across all prize tiers worth more than $274.31 million.
