Have you ever wondered what a winning lottery ticket looks like? We don't mean one that pays out a pound or two, we mean one that pays out a jackpot as high as £100,000. Well for the first time The National Lottery have posted up an image of a genuine big winner scratchcard. Dean and Kimberleigh Aby from Billingham scooped £100K when they purchased this card.
At first glance it just looks like an ordinary ticket but check out row 3 of game 1! The game is called In A Row and the simple aim is for the value in the first column (Yours) to be greater than the value in the second (Theres). As you can see Row 3 gives a score of 8-5 meaning a win of £100,000!
Disappointingly there's no fireworks, balloons or dead clowns falling from the ceiling (Family Guy reference) - but then who cares if you're £100K better off at the scratch of a coin. Big congratulations to Dean and Kimberleigh with their win - we wonder what they'll be using their prize for - a holiday? car? paying off the mortgage? What would you do?
Inevitably The National Lottery have had some interesting comments posted to their Facebook page regarding the posting of the image. One commentator posted an image of a losing ticket which at first glance looks identical to the one that's won - right down to the background and scratches. However at closer inspection the winning symbols on game 3 are different - one is a hat and the other a ring.
Thankfully most people are happy for the lucky couple and are busy offering their congratulations rather than question whether the image is genuine or question the morality of scratchcards. Our view is quite simple - it's not illegal to play and provided you only spend what you can afford to lose then there's no harm in a flutter. The chances are you won't be lucky like Dean & Kim, but there are still three further £100K Monopoly Scratchcard prizes to be won - and it could be you next time!
