Have you ever won any big money off Scratchcards

I love doing those €1 and €2 euro scratch cards like the All Cash ones.

I've never won anything more then a €5 or €10 euro though.

Have any of you actually won any considerable cash of them?

I once won a free scratchcard, so i got one. Scratched that one to reveal that I'd won ANOTHER free scratchcard.

This scratchcard won me me nothing.

These threads come up all the time. I belive the Irish national lottery are the hungriest bunch of chancers I've ever encountered. Has there ever been an audit done on the company to prove or disprove their claims of how much money they give away. Nobody ever seems to win on those scratch cards.

I got a few as presents for my 21st. Got €100 in an All Cash and €50 in a Winning Streak. There were a couple of €10s and € 2 too.

House always wins, scratch card winnings are crumbs off the table.

Not that someone would necessarily come back to the shop if they won a top prize, but I never saw more than €100 in ten years when I worked in a Lotto agent.

€50 on a €1 scratch card was my biggest win

Even a 100 quid would be nice, to be honest.

I never really sink a lot of money in them, usually get 2 or 4 and just keep going till its gone.

Just realised though ive never met anyone who's ever even made 25 of one

I was watching Winning Streak one night and one of the contestants had previously won €10,000 on one. Derek Mooneys reaction? "Jaysus, I never heard of anyone winning that amount on a scratchcard!" Great way of promoting the brand there Mooney.....
