First, I saw I had three numbers and then three and then you can imagine the shock when I went through them all. I couldn’t tell you how many times I checked my numbers – I was scanning with the ticket with my phone and then looking over the numbers myself to be fully certain. I decided to give a family member a call then to get them to have a look as well. Sure then the two of us were double checking!”
“It’s been nerve-wracking holding on to the ticket since the big night so I’m delighted to finally be in the Winners Room to hand it over! It still seems so surreal so I’ll definitely be taking my time to decide what to do next.”
