It's been a while since we've featured a scratchcard jackpot winner that has gone public, however, we recently found the story of 61 year Kevin Francis who just won big.
Winning a scratchcard jackpot is what we all dream of.
In April 2014, Jack Tanbini was just 18 when he won £100,000 after purchasing a £1 £100,000 Purple scratchcard.
He initially purchased the scratchcard after making a delivery to a local store in Dundee and trying to purchase some crisps. After the shopkeeper refused payment due to his help, he instead spent it on the lucky scratchcard.
But there story hasn't turned out so well 5 years later...
At the beginning on August, we shared the news that £10 scratchcards were going to be removed from sale.
And eventually, the £10 scratchcards were finally removed from sale on the 27th September.
However, there is now a petition to bring back the £10 scratchcards!
We're back to share another jackpot winner with you!
This story is about 43 year old Paul Harrington, who has been lucky enough to win two big prizes in the last month!
Over the last few weeks, there have been more and more euromillions jackpot draws with no winning ticket.
In fact, there's been so many, that tonights jackpot stands at the BIGGEST ever of £167 Million! If there is just one winning ticket, the winner will take the honour of winning the largest prize of any Euromillions draw.
In fact, the biggest jackpot won so far, was £161 Million, won by Colin and Chris Weir, from Scotland, in 2012.
In fact, they won so much, they became the 516th richest couple in the UK.
Recently, we announced the news that National Lottery is removing ALL £10 scratchcards from sale.
Initially, we were told that the current range of £10 scratchcards would still be on sale until they all sold. However, it has been announced that you have less than one month to buy your last ever £10 scratchcard!
We're only at the end of August, but National Lottery have announced that the first Christmas scratchcard - 'Christmas Advent Calendar' will be released on 2nd September 2019 - see more details here!

2019 marks the 25th anniversary of National Lottery being run by everyone's favourite Canadian Pension Fund - Camelot.
Since first being granted the license in 1994, they were re-granted the licence again in 2001 and then 2007. With their current licence up for review in 2023, it is likely they might not make their 30th anniversary in charge, so this could be the last big birthday edition they celebrate!
However, to do so, they have announced a range of National Lottery games to celebrate the 25 year occasion!
