1/12/10 – Who would have thunk it….six figure paydays playing scratchcards online?!
The internet scratchcard developer Neogames reports that just weeks into 2010 the online scratch card website, Scratch2Cash, has paid out a Euro 100 000 win to French player IvanC.
The punter was playing one of Scratch2Cash's popular games, ‘Super Chance' when he hit a fortune, playing on a Euro 10 ticket.
"I looked at my winnings and I saw the number one, followed by several zeros," the delighted Frenchman told Scratch2Cash representatives.
"At first I thought it was Euro 1 000, but after looking closer I thought I saw Euro 10 000. I began to count the number of zeros after number 1: there were five! I had won Euro 100 000! I could not believe it. I stayed for fifteen minutes in front of my screen to watch the jackpot flash. Looking at my credit balance, I realised that this was reality," the winner added.
