Brit couple scoop £300k from £3 National Lottery scratchcard from Tesco

A lucky British couple have scooped a massive £300,000 lottery windfall after spending just £3 on a scratchcard bought at a Tesco supermarket.

George and Elizabeth Galloway, a married couple who live in Glasgow, said they are looking forward to spending more time together and paying off their mortgage, following the massive win.

Elizabeth, 49, toldGlasgowLivethat she and her husband will now be able to pay off their mortgage 15 years early.

Her truck driver husband will also no longer have to work overtime, meaning they will get to spend more quality time together.

“At the moment, George regularly does overtime, but now, he won’t need to so we can have a little more free time together, enjoy a few staycations and help our loved ones,” she said.

She said she was already planning on helping her parents and her daughter with their winnings.

Liz added: "Our daughter is currently renting a flat and, with the way the market is at the moment, it’s been difficult for her to get on the property ladder, so we’re looking forward to helping her out.

“I’d always said that if I won the Lottery, I’d buy my dad a new car so I can’t wait to do that, as well as treat my mum to her dream bathroom."

The thrilled winner said she initially thought she had won £1,000 on the scratchcard at the Tesco Extra in Rollox Business Park in Glasgow.

Elizabeth said: “I regularly buy scratchcards but have never won more than say £10, so I couldn’t quite believe it when I started to see what I had won.

“At first, I thought it was £1,000, which I would have been happy with, but as I carried on, I realised it was much more than that and I was in complete shock.

“I called my daughter and we went back to Tesco together, where I’d bought the scratchcard, to check I wasn’t seeing things. They said I needed to contact Camelot, so I knew then that I must be right."

“After they confirmed everything, I called my husband who thought I was winding him up. I was absolutely ecstatic and kept having to check it was real – I still can’t believe it now.”
