Big £100,000 for Lucky Scratchcard Winner!Tuesday 5.06.12
One man from Chepstow had the moment we all dream of, getting that lucky scratchcard - making him £100,000 richer in just a few minutes!
What scratchcard was he so lucky on? Stuart Parsons, just 21 years of age manage to win the huge sum when playing the £4 Million Blue Scratchcard. This story is even more interesting because Stuart found that the urge to buy the lucky scratchcard came from seeing the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 everywhere. This prompted him to get his girlfriend to stop off at the Spar shop on Beachley Road where he bought scratchcards from dispenser 1, 2, 3 and 4. Before the Mystic Meg’s out there go crazy, it was only dispenser 1 that turned out to have a lucky scratchcard but still pretty coincidental! Here’s what Stuart had to say: “It sounds so weird telling the story now but for the past couple of months I have kept seeing the numbers 1 2 3 4, whether it’s 12.34pm on my phone, 1,234 mileage on the work car or registration documents. Most people would call it a coincidence but it was starting to freak me out a bit!”
Did he go crazy with the money? Apparently not, he has invested most of it but splashed out by buying himself a new TV and a Mini Cooper for his girlfriend.
