Most National Lottery scratchcard players will be aware of the scratchcard in question for this story. But for those of you who don’t, it is the aptly named Cars and Cash scratchcard.

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.
