Don’t you hate it when people tell you there’s only 46 days left until Christmas, I’m stressed out enough already! Plus I’ve no idea what presents I’m getting friends and family this year.
Picking Christmas presents is always difficult. what to get? how much to spend? will they like it? Well, how about giving a million quid as a present? Who wouldn’t like that? Don’t worry if you haven’t got a £1 million to give away – just give one of the National Lotteries mega jackpot scratch cards as a present instead!
Luckily the National lottery has just launched two Christmas themed scratch cards, and I thought they’d make ideal presents for those difficult to buy for people – you know the type, the ones who have everything already. Why not solve the ‘Present Problem’ by popping a scratchie in a Christmas card, hey presto! instant Crimbo gift.
I’ll also be keeping one or two in a draw with a few christmas cards for those unexpected visitors. Last year I even used a scratch card for my works secret Santa, as I couldn’t find a gift for £5 that didn’t look like, well… five pounds worth of tat – the possibility of winning £1 million has to be way more exciting than getting a bottle of Hi Karate aftershave.
Next time you’re in the newsagents look out for ‘Christmas millionaire’ and ‘Snow Me The Money’ scratch cards. I bought one each (research!), the Christmas Millionaire card cost me £5 and offers four top prizes of £1 million – So it’s the same top prize as ‘Big Blue‘ only it costs a fiver less! Is this the lottery admitting they got the pricing wrong on that one? The game play on Christmas Millionaire is almost identical to Big Blue, only with a festive theme. You get five chances to win and I lost on all of them! However, on the ‘Snow Me The Money’ card I won a tenner! Not quite the £80,000 jackpot I was hoping for but not too bad for a £2 card.
It’s could be a very merry Christmas for the lucky punter who lands a £1 Million prizes – especially if they got the card as a gift!
