Mount Gravatt Instant Scratch-Its Winner to Receive $1,000 a Week for 5 Years

For the next five years, a man from Mount Gravatt will receive $1,000 a week, or $260,000 in total, after confirming that he has the top prize Instant Scratch-Its winning ticket.

The unnamed winner purchased his $5 Live the Life ticket at Sunshine News inside Mt Gravatt Plaza on Creek Road. The man said that he waited for weeks to scratch his ticket and could not believe his luck when he realised he has the winning numbers.

“I probably only buy scratchies every once in a blue moon,” he said. “I had it at home for 14 days before I scratched it.” 

He bought two Instant Scratch-Its tickets from his recent “small win on Lotto” and is now looking forward to having “such nice security” every week.

“I feel like we’re on a roll at the moment,” the shop owner said.
