Central Queensland couple scratch $250,000 top prize

A CENTRAL Queensland couple can tick "being debt free" off their New Year's resolutions list after winning the $250,000 top prize on an Instant Scratch-Its $5 ticket.

The winners purchased the ticket from NewsXpress Mount Morgan.

"It's just an incredible feeling," one of the winners said.

"We are still having trouble believing that we have won. This prize is the best start we could imagine to 2014."

The couple said they'll use the prize to pay off their mortgage.
