A LUCKY Kerry man bagged himself a €20,000 National Lottery windfall as he topped his van up with diesel at a filling station in Dingle.

Liale Holland couldn’t believe his eyes as he scratched his way to a €20,000 win on the €20 All Cash Extravaganza scratch card which he bought at Moran’s Supermarket on Mail Road. “I had such a lucky feeling when I was putting fuel in my van this morning. When I was at the till, I bought the scratch card and a ticket for the EuroMillions €100 million jackpot. And who knows, I might be back for my EuroMillions prize tomorrow,” he said.

The All Cash Extravaganza scratch card which costs €20 still has a top prize of an astonishing €500,000 remaining. Last year, Natalie Owens from Co Limerick scooped the top prize of €500,000 on the All Cash Extravaganza scratch card after she purchased the winning scratch card at The Ambassador Shop in Dooradoyle in Co Limerick.

The lucky scratch card winner added: “When I found out that I had won, I just got straight on the road to Dublin to collect my winnings. My family have no idea where I am and I still haven’t even told my partner.

“It’s my partner’s birthday at the weekend so we will celebrate in style. We are saving for a house at the moment so this will go a long way towards our mortgage deposit.”

Other large scratch card winners through National Lottery offices today included a €25,000 prize on a €10 All Cash Spectacular scratch card which was sold at Daly’s Newsagents in Claremorris, Co Mayo. Another €20,000 scratch card prize was paid to a winner who purchased their winning €2 Money Multiplier 5X scratch card at the Londis Store in Lifford Co Donegal.

Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot is an estimated €3 million. Play in store, on the National Lottery App or online by 7.45pm on Wednesday evening for your chance to win.
