Give dad something to cheer about this Father’s Day with Instant Scratch-Its!
August 24, 2020 – Getting dad an exciting gift each year on Father’s Day can be a struggle – but for some dads, their special day has delivered unexpected delights as they’ve received top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its tickets from their adult children.
From victorious screams and loud applauses, the reactions from dads who’ve had Instant Scratch-Its top prize wins can be diverse and surprising. But there’s always one thing they have in common – they’re exhilarated by the win.
“It was crazy! I was sitting there for about an hour, dumbfounded, thinking ‘is it real?’. I’ve had some great Father’s Days, but this is the best!” – Tahmoor winner
“My wife came out the back to show me something funny she’d seen on the internet, and I said to her ‘that’s a good one, but not as good as this!’. It’s definitely the best Father’s Day I have ever had!” – North Rockhampton dad
“My son gave me a gift pack for Father’s Day. I’d won a few dollars after scratching the first two and then I scratched the third and it was $200,000!” – Gold Coast father
"The afternoon sun was sinking as I realised I had a ticket to scratch. I first scratched one of the symbols which revealed a car, then another car and then a third car. I nearly died when I realised I won $100,000! I got so excited I started to shake.” – Rockhampton man
For this year’s Father’s Day, Instant Scratch-Its has released a special $5 Aces Wild ticket that could give dads across Australia something to cheer about with the chance to win a top prize of $100,000, along with other prizes in the game’s prize pool.
The Lott spokesperson Ally Ramsamy said she was looking forward to seeing if any dads won a top prize this Father’s Day.
“Winning a top prize is exciting for anyone, but receiving an Instant Scratch-Its ticket as a gift on Father’s day and winning a top prize, is just phenomenal,” she said.
“We’ve spoken to many fathers in the past whose days have turned from ordinary to extraordinary as they realised they’d won tens of thousands of dollars on a ticket given to them by their family.
“Previous dads who have won have used their prizes to go on golfing trips with their family, buy the boat they’ve always wanted or book an adrenaline pumping activity like skydiving.
“Your dad could experience that too, if he wins a top prize this Father’s Day.
“One thing’s for sure, if your dad scored $100,000 on a $5 Aces Wild ticket on his special day, it would be a gift he’d never forget.”
The full Instant Scratch-Its ticket range, including a special Father’s Day $5 Aces Wild ticket, is now available at Instant Scratch-Its outlets in Queensland, New South Wales, the ACT, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
