Celebrate Christmas in Scratchie style

Christmas… it’s a time of celebration, joy, spending time with loved ones… and that dreaded last minute shopping!

We’ve all been there before – driving around the car park at the shops for hours trying to find a car space; traipsing through shop after shop looking for that perfect gift for that special someone who has everything; and forgetting to buy that all-important gift for your Mum’s cousin’s nephew.

If socks, jocks and chocs aren’t going to cut it this year, why not grab your loved ones a Scratchie?

“Scratchies really are a great gift,” a husband and wife from Mandurah recently explained in the Lotterywest Winner’s Room.

“Our daughter always buys us Scratchies from newsXpress Silver Sands for Christmas – it’s been a family tradition for as long as I can remember,” the woman said.

“This year, she gave us a bundle of tickets, including the new $5 Christmas Magic scratchie”.

“We almost fell off our chairs when we scratched away and realised we’d won the Top Prize of $75,000,” she said.

The man added that he and his wife couldn’t wait to celebrate their big win with the family.

“Christmas this year will be one we’ll never forget,” he said.

“With $75,000 in the bank, it’ll probably feel like Christmas all year round,” he laughed.

With more than $1 million paid out in Scratch’n’Win prize money each week*, Scratchies are the gift that keeps on giving.

And the best part?

When you give a Lotterywest Scratchie to your family and friends this holiday season, you’re not only giving them the chance to win big, you’re also giving back to the WA community – in the last financial year alone, almost $30 million* was generated for local community organisations thanks to Scratch’n’Win sales.

So visit your local Lotterywest store today and get your Scratchies this Christmas – because it’s just not Christmas without Scratchies!
