Katie Douglas almost missed on a big payday when she discovered that the Tesco store did not carry her usual scratch card. A last minute decision to go ahead and purchase a bright red National Lottery £250k Red Scratchcard instead gave her more than she expected.
The card revealed she had won the top prize of £250,000! Though in shock, she maintained her composure long enough to ask the clerk to verify it. Soon she was on the phone confirming the win with the National Lottery. Now she and her husband are planning a holiday in Florida, and looking forward to life without much financial worries.
