One minute Mandy Carter from Gloucestershire was popping into a store to quickly use their bathroom and the next she was £100,000 richer thanks to buying a scratch card on a whim.
Mandy Carter, 52, from Tewkesbury really needed to use the bathroom, so she quickly nipped into her local branch of Morrisons. As she was leaving the store she noticed that there was just one scratch card left on the rack. On a whim, she bought it and went to her car.
While claiming her scratchcard win, she said, ''I saw one in the rack on its own and decided I wanted that one. It turned out it was a winner. I thought I had won £100 but realised there was a combo. I rubbed my eyes and checked closely, rubbed my eyes and checked again. I realised there was a couple more zeros. It was £100,000.”
Sitting in her car she scratched off the card and burst into tears when she discovered that she had won £100,000!
Like most mums, Mandy knew the money could be used wisely, so instead of going on a massive shopping spree to celebrate her win, she enjoyed a spicy meal at her local Indian takeaway with her family and ordered an extra naan.
Her mum was also shocked to hear about her daughter’s incredible scratchcard win. After calling her mum, Mandy called her daughter, Hannah, who like so many recipients of a call like this, did not believe the news when she was told at first, thinking her mum was playing the fool.
“I was crying to start with, so my mum thought it was some bad news about my daughter”.
As of yet, Mandy is undecided with what she will do with her unexpected windfall.
'I'm just taking some time out, letting it all sink in and then I'll make some decisions in a few weeks’ time.'
'I paid off a few bills, bought a new three-piece suite but haven't thought that far ahead.'
Mandy also hopes to treat her family to a holiday at some point in the future.
'The whole situation is very surreal and overwhelming, I can't quite believe it has happened.'
