Martin McKenna from Ireland won a fabulous prize of £1 million on a UK National Lottery scratchcard. Martin has his girlfriend Ceri to thank for his big win. He has some big plans for spending his winnings, but first let’s dive deeper into his story on how the win happened.
Martin McKenna is 35-years-old and come from County Down in Northern Ireland. Martin was recently the winner of a £1 million UK National Lottery scratchcard. Martin’s girlfriend asked him to kindly pop out of the house and get some ingredients for their dinner. This is already sounding like past winner John Rumpel from Wisconsin who was also sent out by his wife to buy a gallon of milk and ended up in him winning $22.2 million with Mega Millions.
Martin gladly obliged and set off to run his errands. Before he went to the store to buy the ingredients, though, he decided to buy two National Lottery Millionaire 777 Red scratchcards. The first ticket he bought for the UK National Lottery earned him £20. While standing in the queue to collect his winnings, he checked his other one and saw that this time, he had won a staggering £1 million!
The happy and extremely lucky UK National Lottery winner initially thought that someone was playing a joke on him. He even went so far as to ask the cashier if the scratch cards they sold him were real! Like so many other past players, his massive win left him in a “state of disbelief”. If you think it was harder for Martin to be convinced that what happened was really happening, then think again. It was almost just as hard to convince his girlfriend Ceri.
It was a miracle that he even remembered to buy the groceries Ceri had asked him to get! After he came back home, Ceri was holding a big pot of spaghetti. Martin asked her to put it down because he had some news to share with her. Nervous at first, Ceri put the pot down and a very unnerving feeling in her gut because she could see Martin was shaken up about something, she just didn’t know what yet.
After Martin told her the news, she just couldn’t believe it. Martin invited friends around to also tell them, and not even they could believe it either! Eventually, the news sunk in, it was bad timing because their son was sleeping upstairs. Martin said, “Believe me, we were screaming on the inside.”
Martin works at the bank and now wants to use his UK National scratchcard winnings to buy a new home, clear all of his debts, and spoil his close family and friends. There have been plenty of lottery winners who used their windfall to buy their dream car. For Martin, however, he only has a good quality Volkswagen which he says he’ll soon be buying. He doesn’t want to buy just one, though. He also has plans to buy one for his girlfriend, Ceri.
Congratulations to Martin, and join us in wishing him all the best for his future with Ceri.
