New 'Oodles O'Scratchcards' scratchcard realistic about where winnings will go

A NEW scratchcard has dropped images of yachts and palm trees in favour of what winners will actually spend their money on. 

The ‘Oodles O’Scratchcards’ National Lottery scratchcard shows a cartoon winner holding a fan of fresh scratchcards on the £5 edition and lying blissfully on a bed of unmarked scratchcards on the £10.

Buyer Martin Bishop said: “I went to the shop to get my usual morning scratchie and, instead of all that nonsense about sports cars and fancy holidays, there was a new range that really spoke to me.

“I went for the £2 card, with a cartoon man winning £30 and immediately buying three tenner scratchies, and promised myself if I won then I’d do exactly the same.

“I didn’t win, but I’ll certainly be back later. Just imagine, more scratchcards than a man can hold in both hands. Now there’s a dream worth chasing.”

A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: “We’re fully aware that whatever’s won on these goes straight back to the newsagent. That’s why we’ve put all those lovely pictures of scratchcards on there.”

“It’s misleading to put a picture of a sportscar on a ten grand jackpot scratchcard anyway. We should have a picture of a 2015 Kia Sportage with 41,000 miles on the clock.”
