I won £40k on a scratch card – I spent the money all at once but I have no regrets | The Sun
A WOMAN has revealed how she won £40,000 on a scratch card – and spent it all at once.
Sydney, who is based in the US, said despite the fact she now lives paycheque to paycheque, she has no regents.
That's because she managed to get on 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 win story.
Sydney explained that she won $50,000 USD – or a little over £40,000 – off a $5 scratch ticket.
But, she always knew she wanted to buy a house, so put the money into that.
