Bundaberg lad wins pot of gold with $50,000 instant win scratch
A young man from Bundaberg feels like he’s found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, thanks to a $50,000 win on the $5 Golden Edition Instant scratch ticket.
The winner took home the Golden Edition promotion prize of $50,000 on the $5 Golden edition Instant scratch ticket.
To win the $50,000 prize, Instant Scratch-Its players had to enter their Golden Edition tickets for the draw on thelott.com by Saturday, May 14, 2022.
It took a while for a manager at The Lott to get his hands on the winner, as he was busy studying.
“I feel on top of this world. It’s pure gold,” he laughed when his victory was revealed by an official from The Lott.
“I just started college and had to step out of my classroom to hear this news. It’s crazy!
“I can’t wait to get home so I can celebrate. I might even finish college early for the day.
“It’s so overwhelming – It’s like a dream!
“I’m so excited right now. I had entered a few tickets into the promotion. I’m happy to have won!
“I will use the prize to pay off part of my student loans and would love to go on a trip abroad.
“I’m going to plan something with my family to celebrate too. It’s huge for me! It’s very exciting.”
In 2021, there were 157 Instant Scratch-Its top prize winners in The Lott jurisdictions who collectively won over $10 million in top prizes.
