Mystery over £1m scratchcard bought at Tesco
AN UNKNOWN lucky punter was also celebrating last night after winning £1 million on a Lotto scratchcard.
The man bought the £2 Lucky 7 scratchcard at the Tescos Knocknagoney store in east Belfast and was so shocked at his fortune, he had to get a staff member to check it.
“He came back in and asked me if our scratch cards were all real,” one sales adviser said. “I said ‘yes of course they are’ and he said ‘I think I’ve won a large amount of money’ so I was thinking he had won a few thousand maybe.
“He showed me the card and I saw he had scratched off a six and a one so I said ‘yes you’ve definitely but how much’.
“He was covering what the prize was and when he moved it, I saw he had won £1 million. I was shocked myself but he said ‘I think I have to go and sit in my car’ and away he went.”
