A lucky couple from Co. Waterford scratched their way to a cool €50,000 win after they hit the top prize on an All Cash Platinum scratch card over the weekend.
The loving couple who are awaiting the birth of a child spoke of their incredible win at such an important juncture in their lives:
“This is the second best bit of news I’ve had this year,’ beamed the expectant dad. “We’re having a baby very soon so this win will give us the extra security we need over the next few months,” he said.
The winning €5 All Cash Platinum scratch card was sold at Kents Store in Kilmacthomas in Co. Waterford.
The All Cash Platinum scratch card which costs €5 has nine top prizes of €50,000, five of which are still up for grabs.
The winning dad added: “I bought two scratch cards and I gave my wife the choice of which one she wanted. There was mayhem in the house when I scratched off the winning panel on my own card. We only bought the tickets on Friday evening so we had to wait the entire weekend to officially confirm our win with the National Lottery.”
“We’re going to have a big party with family and friends next weekend but after that, this win is all about our children. We genuinely can’t wait for the new arrival,” he said.
