A lucky St Helen’s man hit the scratch card jackpot recently when playing a National Lottery Scratch Card game. Craig Lyons a lifelong St Helens Rugby league supporter felt lucky and purchased his first scratch card of the day for £5 and won £5 back.
Scratch Card Player Wins £300,000 Prize
On his way home from work is when the scratch card itch struck again, lucky for him he responded to the itch. He bought two more scratch cards from the earlier win of £5. One of these scratch cards was the Bingo Pink scratch card which won him a £300,000 cash prize.
He waited until he got home to scratch the cards and did it very slowly according to his words. When he realized that he had won a £300,000.00 prize he called Camelot to confirm that he was a prize winner.
They confirmed the win and he jumped into his car to go and tell his wife the good news. The lucky scratch card player now plans to take his children to Disneyland as a birthday treat.
The popularity of scratchcard games has risen dramatically in the last few years. The main reason for the increased popularity is the instant jackpot nature of the game combined with a relatively low purchase amount. A £2 scratchcard buy could see a punter playing for a £100,000 prize.
Play Scratch Cards Responsibly
Scratch cards should be played for entertainment purposes only. It must be remembered that more people lose on scratch cards than win. The instant nature of the prizes though is in some cases large. Try and resist that itch to get more cards to cover any losses. Online Scratch Cards have become a lot more prominent an offering.
