Van Driver Lands £1 Million Scratch Card

When we hear about scratch card winner’s stories its normal to think that will never happen to me – but this latest news story was a complete inspiration! Craig Fielding is a van driver from Swindon who has just scooped a massive £1 million win from a lottery scratch card!

He decided to make a stop at an off licence in Wigan whilst working and randomly decided to purchase a scratch card. Craig who is 44 has bought scratch cards in the past and has won a couple of hundred pounds before – but of course nothing like this! He said reminiscing about the day:

“When I scratched it in the shop, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It was an amazing moment. I called the assistant over to look and we were both just glued to the spot, stunned. The assistant scanned the card and it just said the prize could not be paid and I needed to call Camelot.”

Too excited to carry on working – he decided to stop his deliveries that day and head home – to be fair – who could blame him! He asked his wife to take a guess as to how much he had won – where initially she started guessing from a few hundred and then reached the £250,000 mark. Craig then asked her to quadruple it! The couple are still so excited about the win they aren’t 100% sure as to what they are going to spend all the cash on although Craig has said that he would like to make himself mortgage free and purchase a new car. In terms of what his partner Andrea wants – Craig stated:

If it was left to Andrea I think she would be spending lots of the money on scatter cushions – she is really house proud and loves all of the finishing touches, particularly scatter cushions”

Maybe not the best investment but if you just won a million – you would definitely want to be a bit frivolous! Thinking long term – Craig has decided to keep working at his current job as has Andrea. He commented that they both love their jobs. Of course £1 million is a lot of money but maybe not enough to live off of forever. Congratulations to the pair and good luck with all that cash!

National Lottery Hits The Headlines

For years there have been lots of stories of friends getting together to form ‘syndicates’, where each member hands in a pound (or more) each week to be part of the lottery selection. Workplaces throughout the UK have syndicates, with some even able to afford fun nights out after winning a couple of hundred pounds. The idea behind them is that players get to be part of more entries because of how much money gets poured in. What this means is that the odds of winning are greatly improved, hence why so many people participate in them. However, there are not really any examples of regular syndicates for scratch cards, but there has been recent news that could change this in the future.

£40 Scratch Card Win Leads to More
A pair of couples from the UK decided to go on a brief holiday to a Center Parcs resort for some relaxing time away. During their time at the resort, the couples decided to pool their resources and buy some scratch cards. Claire and Malcolm Sills and their friends Martin and Claire Tait were pleased to learn that they had managed to win £40 from playing the scratch cards. Feeling buoyant after their win, the popular opinion of the couples was that the money should be spent on a lavish round of celebratory drinks. However, one of the husbands had a better idea for spending the winnings.

Winnings Spent on EuroMillions
Martin Tait wisely suggested to his three other holiday companions that they should spend the money on another ticket for the then upcoming EuroMillions lotto draw. EuroMillions is a National Lottery competition that attracts lotto players from all over Europe who enter with the hope of winnings up tens of millions of pounds. Everyone subsequently agreed with Martin and the money was spent on EuroMillions.

Scratch Card Leads to £1m Win
Following the holiday the couples went back to their daily lives and got on with things. It was during this time that the EuroMillions draw was held, and there was an exciting out come from the couples. One of their EuroMillions tickets had led to a win worth £1 million, but none of them were inititally aware of this. Martin kept the winning ticket in his pocket for nearly three days before he finally checked the numbers. This story should be proof that you syndicate might be wise to consider investment in a few scratch cards to help fund more winning lotto tickets.

Spiderman Hero Scratch Card

The new Spiderman Hero card from Scratch2Cash has tingled my ‘spider-sense’. Firstly let me say that I’m a massive Spiderman fan and can’t resist trying out any Spiderman related scratch card or fruit machine game.

So what did I think about this card from Scratch2Cash? Well, the graphics and game play are as good as you’ll find anywhere online. The card is animated and the sound effects are movie quality. The game play is fairly standard for a scratch card but this game does have a few twists up it’s sleeve.

Like most scratch card games you win by matching various symbols, on this card they’re all Spiderman related. Match 3 Spiderman logos to win the jackpot of x1000 your stake. Other big prizes include x100 for matching the ‘Dark Spiderman’ and smaller prizes for matching other characters from the Spiderman franchise. It’s worth noting that the Spiderman ‘Mask’ symbol is ‘wild’ and can substitute for another symbol to complete winning lines.

The major difference between this scratch card and other games is the gamble feature. Each time you win on Spiderman Hero Scratch Card you can choose to play the ‘double or nothing’ mini game. Although you don’t have to gamble your wins, you can just opt to collect the cash. Should you choose to gamble then you must selected either the good Spiderman or the bad ‘Dark’ spiderman character, choose correctly and your win is doubled, choose wrong and you lose the cash.

The maximum amount you can stake on the card is £10 and the minimum is £0.50p. Jackpots at the Scratch2Cash site are always pretty high and Scratch2Cash also have a great promotional offer for new players, they will give you £5 totally free when you join! Overall I recommend you try the Spiderman Hero scratch, especially when you consider 1 in 3 scratch cards at Scratch2Cash is a winner.


Football Mania Scratch Off

The football Mania scratch card from Gala Casino could be your ticket to a £100,000 Jackpot. That’s more money than a Premier League footballer earns in a week! well, maybe not a week but it’s close.

This scratch card celebrates our love of the National game… It has everything but a penalty shoot out – thank god as we always lose them! To win big on this card you’ll need to match any of the six symbols to the symbol hidden behind the big football.

You can scratch off each panel individually and save the big football until last, that way you’ll build the tension or you can just hit ‘reveal all’. The cash prizes on this game are very good, anything from £10 to £100,000.

Football Mania from Gala Casino is good value considering the cost of the cards and the jackpots available. You can choose various levels of risk, the minimum cost per card is only £0.50p and the maximum is £10. You can also bulk buy cards and zip through them quickly with ‘AutoPlay’ – I always think ‘AutoPlay’ takes some of the fun out of playing.

This card hits the back of the net and rips it shirt off to celebrate – not literally, but you get what I mean… It’s more fun than a night out with George Best and Gazza! If the beautiful game is your thing then you’ll love Football Mania.


Minesweeper Scratch Card

Ever seen something and thought ‘why did no one think of this before?’ that’s exactly what I said when I saw the photos of the Minesweeper Scratch Card. Developed by the Koren company Connect Design, the card is an authentic replica of the classic PC game which was loved by millions.

The scratch cards cost $2 and you can’t even win any money playing them, but that hasn’t stopped them becoming hugely popular in Korea. It’s possible to lose on your first scratch of these cards but the designers have thought about this and printed a postcard on the reverse side so customers can at least use them twice, once as a game and then as a postcard.

My first though on seeing the card was… Kerching, why isn’t someone developing this as an online scratch card game? It would be fantastic to see this classic retro game with a massive jackpot! The first scratch card site to offer this online is going to make a fortune!

Classic Slots Scratch Card

You like slots, you like scratch cards… which should you play? How about both at the same time, the Classic Slot Scratch Card from Gala Casino is a mash up of a slot machine and a scratch card, which means double the fun.

This is a retro-style scratch game featuring the typical fruit machine symbols like fruits, bars and sevens. Just Scratch and match to win cash and prizes in this combo classic fruit machine scratch game at Gala Casino.

This is just one of 20 great scratch card games available to play online with Gala. Other popular cards include ‘Spamalot’ this is based on the classic Monty Python film ‘The Holy Grail’ and the brilliant King Kong scratch card.

The Paddy Power Games version plays slightly different, Players are dealt 5 cards and unlike the TV show you do get something for a pair in this game! The main game is all about try to make pairs, three of a kind, straights and flushes. If you get a Royal Flush (Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten all of the same suit) then you’ll be winning big.
