Couple Wins £250,000 Playing Scratchcards

Neil and Maureen Hosford are a couple of pensioners from Scotland that took a Sunday day trip on the bus to a nearby town. The last thing they expected to happen is for them to become €250,000 richer by the end of the trip. That is approximately €290,000 won during a peaceful Sunday shopping day.

The couple bought two scratch tickets at a bookshop while they were out shopping but the wife decided they should get a couple more. They stopped at a convenience store and brought two additional scratchcards.

They did not scratch them until they got on the bus again on their way home. The couple set at the back of the bus and Maureen Hosford started scratching the cards and was amazed to see that one of the cards had a green symbol that said £250,000 winner.

She could not believe she had a winning card and showed to her husband that confirmed they had won the top prize. They did not tell anyone on the bus because they were concerned for their safety. They hurried home and called the lottery company to confirm their win.

In an interview to the Scottish press Neil Hosford explained how much the money they won will help them; “my wife had an operation for cancer, I broke my femur bone and our son-in-law lost his job so this is a bit of good news”.

The couple now plans on investing most of the money in renovating their home and plan to help out their daughters and three grandchildren.
