Early Christmas present for one family!

A southern suburbs man is booking a family holiday to Ireland after recently winning $100,000 on a Christmas Scratch’n’Win ticket.

The scratchie was purchased from Seahaven Newsagency in Waikiki and is one of this year’s Christmas Scratch’n’Win tickets, which have a prize pool of over $6 million.

The $10 Christmas Gift Top Prize winner said he bought the scratchie because his wife loves Christmas.

“We were very excited. My wife nearly collapsed when she realised we’d won.”

“We couldn’t believe you can win that much on a scratchie.”

After letting the win sink in and enjoying a celebration with family and close friends, the winner said he has big plans for the winnings.

“My wife had been hoping to get to Ireland for a holiday next year. This win makes that possible and means the entire family can come on the trip,” he said.

So far this year, 51 Top Prize winners have shared in more than $4.7 million in prizes, and over $26 million in funding has been delivered back into the WA Community from Scratch’n’Wins in 2022.

Christmas scratchies remain a popular gift, with more than $3.3 million in prizes won from tickets last Christmas and over $1 million returned to the community in grants.
