A lucky scratchcard win results in wedding bells • 14.07.16
Andrew Cunliffe used the discovery of with £1 million Scratchcard win to pop another surprise, quickly proposing to his long-term girlfriend, Natalie, after the win.
Andrew, who lives in Blackpool, had gone to the shop to buy teabags when he decided to buy the £100 Million Cash Spectacular Orange Scratchcard from the National Lottery GameStore, because it had ‘caught his eye’.
Winning the huge sum and getting engaged has undoubtedly been a whirlwind for the couple, Andrew said of the events: “This is just a dream come true. This is what dreams are made of. Never did I believe something like this would happen to us – but it has – and now I can give my girlfriend the wedding she always dreamed of.
Andrew waited till he was back at work to play the scratchcard and couldn’t believe his luck when he realised he had won: “I have to admit there were a few expletives as I shouted out…OMG I have won £1 million! I just couldn’t take my eyes off the scratchcard prize, I just kept thinking, am I seeing things? Am I imagining this? Things like this don’t happen to me”
He then had to wait for his girlfriend to get home before shouting “we are millionaires!”
This initial success spurred Andrew on to play even more and after scooping his big prize, he then won £25 on Lotto a day later and also matched 2 numbers to win a lucky dip ticket the week after.
It’s a perfect example of luck coming in threes and Andrew is well aware of this. In fact, he still finds his luck hard to believe: “We actually still cannot believe it. We have to keep pinching ourselves, thinking we are going to wake up from a dream and discover none of this has really happened.”
