Elvis Fan Wins Scratchcard Jackpot
Updated: Tuesday 12th April 2016
A 43 year old Elvis fan who lives in Goldthorpe, Rotherham is celebrating after winning a £250,000 jackpot on a £250k Blue Scratchcard. Mark Camplin is a self-employed joiner and he bought his lottery scratchcard on the way to his local pub, though he didn’t actually play the game until he was enjoying a drink with his friends. When he did eventually scratch the panels on the scratchcard, he initially thought that he had won a prize worth £250. Then he allowed his friends to take a look at the card and that was when he discovered that he hadn’t won £250 at all, but £250,000!
Mark is engaged to be married to Donna, and is now planning to use some of his winnings for the wedding. And in true Elvis-fan style, he is intending to take his new wife on a honeymoon to Graceland, which was of course Elvis Presley’s mansion home in Memphis, Tennessee.
“It really is a life changing amount of money for me and Donna and we will be able to have an amazing wedding and honeymoon as a result of the win,” Mark said. “I’m house hunting at the moment as it would be great to buy somewhere before Christmas and I also want to buy a new car – once I’ve passed my driving test!”
And what does Mark’s fiancée think about the fact that her husband-to-be is now a lottery winner? “Donna really can’t believe it and it hasn’t sunk in yet properly for either of us,” Mark said. “We are planning a holiday away to Salou first so we can relax and enjoy the winnings. We can then start house hunting, planning our wedding and fulfilling my dream to visit Graceland.”
We wish Mark and Donna our very best for their future together, and for those who want to try and win their own jackpot by playing instant win games, why not pay a visit to our Lottery Casino, where you could win a jackpot of five, six or maybe even seven figures?
