Scottish scratchcard winner’s disbelief as she mistakes £1 million jackpot win for £1000
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

When a member of the Lottoland team called Mrs Fox from Scotland this week, she thought it was to organise the transfer of the funds for her £1000 scratch card win.

It was only when she mentioned that a thousand pounds would help towards Christmas, that she was told that she had in fact scooped £1,000,000 on an online Lottoland scratch card.

Mrs Fox, who wishes to remain anonymous, was lost for words when she was told that she had missed off a few zeros – and that she was actually a millionaire. She and her husband now plan to enjoy the life changing amount and buy a home in warmer climes.

Mrs Fox explained: “I am a regular Lottoland player, playing once or twice a week. I usually bet on the overseas lotto draws – especially the big US ones, but I decided to have a go at a Scratchcard for a change and that’s when I won.”

“When I saw that I had won £1,000, I was thrilled and my first thought was that it would be a great help with Christmas, but when I was told I had in fact won a million pounds, I couldn’t believe it. I had a missed a few calls the day before and just thought they were organising the transfer, I didn’t realise that I was a million-pound winner.”

She added: “This is a life changing amount of money that is going to allow us to achieve our goal of buying a home overseas. I still can’t believe it.”

Nigel Birrell, CEO of Lottoland, said: “Stories like these are why we do the job we do. To hear Mrs Fox’s totally incredulous voice on the phone is wonderful. It is a true shock for her and a win that will change her life forever.

Lottoland scratchcards operate in the same was as a traditional scratchcard in that they reveal winning numbers or symbols, and you are told instantly if you are a winner. In this case, Mrs Fox didn’t notice the three extra noughts on the end of her winning figure – so she thought she’d won a handy £1,000 – rather than a life-changing £1million.

Mrs Fox joins a record winning Lottoland cohort of millionaires this year. In June this year, Christina from Germany scooped the biggest online gambling payout of all time, winning £79million on the EuroJackpot. That win is now in the Guinness World Records.

This week Lottoland users have a chance to win £32m with EuroMillionaire and £7m with Lotto Plus, as well as the chance for an instant win with Lottoland scratchcards. For more information, visit www.lottoland.co.uk.
