Kadina resident wins $10,000 off $1 scratchie

A Kadina resident has had a lucky start to their week after they scratched one of the top prizes, $10,000 on a $1 Sweet Dough Instant scratch-its ticket. 

The winning ticket, purchased at Newbery Chemist in Kadina, saw the win coincide with Mother’s Day, a peak time of the year when the scratch-its are gifted. 

“We don’t know if our winner received this winning ticket for Mother’s Day, but I’m sure they will be enjoying their $10,000 prize”, SA Lotteries spokesperson, Ally Ramsamy said. 

The winner has chosen to remain anonymous but the manager of the chemist, where it was sold, Richard Wegener says they were so excited to have sold the top prize. 

“It is very exciting and we are very happy for the customer.”

“We haven’t sold many winning Instant Scratch-Its.”

“I hope this changes and we make some more customers happy very soon.”

Last financial year, there were 144 Instant Scratch-Its top prize winners across the Lott’s jurisdictions who collectively took home more than $12 million.
