A Birralee man is now $100,000 richer after taking the top prize in The Lott instant scratch-it tickets.
The man, who hasn't been identified, purchased the winning ticket at Mr Lotto at Invermay, and discovered his winnings while having a morning cup of tea at work.
"I was sitting down, having a cup of tea, about to start the day and thought I'd quickly scratch it before I had to start," he said.
"Initially, I thought I won $10,000. I went up to one of my colleagues and told him, and he couldn't believe it!
"I went back, finished my cup of tea and decided to have another look at it. That's when I realised I'd actually won $100,000!"
