Scratch card winner in Portlaoise.

A lucky lady is celebrating somewhere in Laois after a big win on a Lotto scratch card.

The National Lottery confirmed that a woman pocketed €40,000 after she bought a winning €10 Money Multiplier 40 X scratch card at Browns Grocers in Portlaoise.

The winner actually had won €500 on a €20 All Cash scratch card that day and with her prize money, she bought another €10 scratch card which had the €40,000 prize – so you can say that she was having a lucky day!

The woman, whose identity was not revealed by the National Lottery, was one of two big scratch card prize winners to claim a combined €65,000 in prizes.

A Galway man is hoping to clear off all of his loans and upgrade his car after he scratched up a €25,000 on a €10 All Cash Spectacular scratch card.

Last week, another Laois person won €50,000 in the Prize Bonds with a ticket bought in 2014.
