An incredibly lucky man from Westbury in the county of Wiltshire, England won an £80,000 top prize with a National Lottery scratch card. The winner says that he will be using his windfall to pay off his mortgage and also help his girlfriend to pay hers off too. Read the winner’s full story and the latest UK Lotto results here.
The winner goes by the name of John Biro. John works as a self-employed grounds worker in Westbury. He managed to win his National Lottery scratch card winnings by playing a Bejewelled Hypercash scratch card. John has said that he wants to split the win 50/50 with his new girlfriend so that both of them have the opportunity to pay off their mortgages. The humble and generous lottery winner told lottery officials that he and his girlfriend, Louise Watts, have known each other for years, but they only officially became an item just three weeks ago.
Despite their short time together as a couple, they said that the National Lottery scratch card win has now given them the perfect start to begin a life together with one another. Mr. Biro said, “I’ve never had any luck and now it all seems to be coming at once, first with Louise and I getting together, and then this win – it’s just unbelievable.”
Mr. Biro bought his winning National Lottery scratch card while on his way home after visiting his late parents’ graves at McColl’s news agency on High Street, Westbury. He decided to buy two tickets when there. One ticket for himself, and one for Ms. Watts. He was already planning to split the winnings no matter what.
“I scratched three matching numbers on my card and thought I had won £8, which I was already quite happy with, but then when I revealed more numbers and realised we had actually won the top prize I couldn’t believe it,” said the tarmac specialist.
The ecstatic National Lottery scratch card winner also revealed that Ms. Watts thought the win was all a joke being played on her and she couldn’t let reality sink in. The two of them will now be paying off their mortgages in Westbury and Mr. Biro has plans to refurbish his kitchen and buy a surf van for his 30 year old daughter. “I still can’t believe my luck – the news hasn’t really sunk in yet. I never believe that amazing things like this could happen to someone like me,” he said cheerily.
