Happy lottery winner secures her future with scratchcard win
A happy lottery winner from Tallaght, Ireland has claimed a €500,000 National Lottery scratch card prize. The lucky winner said the prize would help fulfil her dreams.
The National Lottery scratch card winnings will help her to buy her own home. She’ll also be able to provide her children with financial security. It’s a fresh new start for a fresh new year.
The winner said she never thought she’d see her future securely in front of her. “I couldn’t believe it when I saw I had won €500,000,” she exclaimed. The winner first thought she’d won only €5,000.
In a state of shock
The unemployed mother bought her All Cash Extravaganza Scratch Card from a store in Dublin. The tearful lottery winner bought it on Tuesday evening on her way to visit a friend. It was there that she scratched it off.
Once she found out about the win, the woman was in shock. “I went out to my car and rang my boyfriend to tell him,” she recalled. However, she didn’t say anything to her friend, and instead went home to let it sink in.
The lucky winner said that she had a feeling she was due to win. The scratch card winner told her dad a day earlier that she was going to win big. “I just had this feeling that this was my time.”
Despite the news having still not sunk in, the tearful lottery winner already has plans. A new home and a new car are on the list. “I presumed a house was always going to be out of my reach.”
