Hannah ‘Val’ Dewar, a Scottish grandmother is the latest winner of the top prize of £30,000 cash and a BMW X2. Winning the prize just before Christmas, she told the National Lottery:
“I had been at the dentist that day and decided to buy myself a couple of Scratchcards afterwards. Being a few days before Christmas the shop was very busy so I decided to wait until I got home to scratch them. I live in a farmhouse with a big open fire and normally, if I haven’t won anything, I just throw the Scratchcards into the fire.
“Strangely, that day the fire wasn’t lit and boy am I glad about that! I had scratched one side and was about to scrunch it up before I realised I had missed the second side. I was just sitting there in astonishment – I had won £30,000 and a car!”
At the time of writing, there are just three of the initial 10 top prizes remaining to be won.
