There was an early Christmas bonus at National Lottery headquarters today when a husband and wife team from Co. Tipperary scooped the €250,000 top prize on a Money Multiplier 40X scratch card.
The happy couple, who were joined in the Winners’ Room by their family and friends, vowed to have the best Christmas ever by sharing their winnings with their children.
“We just can’t believe it. I always treat myself to two scratch cards every weekend but I never expected to win anything like this, especially the week before Christmas,” said the emotional Tipperary woman.
The lucky t€10 Money Multiplier 40X scratch card was purchased at the Post Office in Templemore.
“It’s going to be a Christmas to remember, that’s for sure. The best thing about our scratch card win is that we don’t have to do any Christmas shopping for our children!
Each of the kids will be getting their own special cheque on Christmas morning which will hopefully be put towards their own mortgage deposits,” she laughed.
