Forestville shopper ends 2018 $50,000 richer with Instant Scratch-Its win!
A Forestville shopper has had a fine finish to 2018 after scratching one of the top prizes of $50,000 on a $4 Flamingo Bingo Instant Scratch-Its ticket.
Who the winner is and how they plan to use their instant windfall will remain a mystery, as the ticketholder has chosen to remain completely anonymous and celebrate in private.
However, they did share it was the perfect way to end the festive season and 2018.
With the winner’s bank balance set to balloon by $50,000 just after Christmas, there was no doubt this Forestville shopper has extra reasons to celebrate.
Imagine heading into the New Year knowing you’ve won a $50,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its ticket. What a way to start 2019!
While we don’t know how our latest top prize winner will use their instant windfall, in the past other Instant Scratch-Its winners have gone on incredible holidays, paid off their mortgages or bought brand new cars.
A woman who won a major prize around this time last year even changed her New Year’s Eve plans at short notice and headed straight to New York to celebrate her win.
The winning $4 Flamingo Bingo Instant Scratch-Its ticket was purchased at Forestville Newsagency, Shop 53, The Centre, Forestville.
Forestville Newsagency owner Alan Amery owner said he was thrilled his outlet had sold a winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket.
“What a great time to win $50,000,” he said.
