Lucky Lilydale scratchy winner

One Lilydale shopper has kicked off the festive season in style after scoring a $25,000 top prize on a $2 Seas’n Greetings Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

The winning ticket was purchased at Lilydale Market Lotto and News at Lilydale Marketplace.

How the winner plans to enjoy their festive season with a stocking full of cash will forever remain a mystery as they have chosen to remain completely anonymous and celebrate the merry time of year in private.

Lilydale Market Lotto and News team member Stephanie Baker said she was excited to hear she was the person who sold the winning ticket.

“I am so happy for the person who won! They’ll be over the moon,” she said.

“It is the perfect time for them to win with the Christmas season coming up. We’ll be telling all of our customers we’ve sold a top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket.

“I think all of our customers will be excited for the happy winner and will want to see if their luck rubs off on them too.

“This is the second major prize we’ve sold in just seven months. The last was a top prize winning Instant Scratch-Its ticket in April.

“Congratulations to our winner. We wish them all the best. I am so happy for our customer and I hope they have had plenty of fun celebrating their win.

“We hope we can keep bringing the joy to our customers.”
