I won £40,000 on a scratch card – I spent the money all at once but I don’t regret it
A WOMAN has revealed how she won £40,000 on a scratch card – and spent it all at once.
Sydney, who lives in the US, said although she now lives paycheck to paycheck, she has no regents.
That’s because she managed to climb the property ladder and buy her first home.
The student who won the money about a year ago took to her TikTok account @sydneykidneybean to share her lottery winning story.
Sydney explained that she won $50,000 – or just over £40,000 – on a $5 scratch card.
But she always knew she wanted to buy a house, so put the money into it.
In a clip posted to Sydneykidneybean’s account, she explained: “The money’s already gone.
“It’s been a year since I used it to pay down a house and after all the dues and a few fixes it’s gone – I’m living paycheck to paycheck again.”
“But it’s okay because I have a house now.”
Sydney continued: “I really wanted a house back then.
“This investment was very important to me and I’m proud of it.”
It’s not uncommon for people to publicly share their lottery winnings.
A woman claimed she’d won £70million on the EuroMillions lottery – and was totally shocked to find out what happens when you win big.
Another millionaire said her life changed forever when she managed to hit a £148million jackpot.
Meanwhile, another man revealed how he defied the odds and managed to win the same lottery draw twice.
