Man Wins $200,000 On Scratch Card While Waiting For His Mum To Finish Shopping

A US man is celebrating a whopping $200,000 (£150,000) win after buying a scratch card while waiting for his mum to do some shopping.

Herbert Scruggs, from Richmond, Virginia, was in the grocery store waiting for his mum to finish up her shopping when he decided to test his luck and buy a Winning Hand scratch card.

Once home, Scruggs scratched off the ticket and was left shocked after seeing he'd scooped the top prize of $200,000. Unable to believe his eyes, Scuggs passed the ticket to his mum to check over.

He told lottery officials: "She got all excited. She said I won!"

As yet, Scuggs says he doesn't know what he's going to spend his unexpected windfall on.

He added: "It feels sort of surreal. It still hasn't hit me yet."

Well, once it has hit him he'll be able to rush out and start spending, unlike 18-year-old Brit Kyle Burke who won £240,000 ($313,000) on a National Lottery scratch card back in March and was unable to spend it as the country was in lockdown.

Burke won the top prize of £20,000 a month for a year (totalling £240,000), but had to put his celebrations on hold due to lockdown restrictions.

He told the Stoke Sentinel: "I know how tough it is for everybody at the moment, especially with my dad working for the NHS.

"But not celebrating and staying at home is the right thing to do. It gives me a lot longer to think about what I'm going to spend my money on.

"I've currently got a provisional driving licence so when I pass my test, I will get a car. All I can do at the moment is look at my banking app to see what my increasing balance is, which is just mad.

"The guys at The National Lottery have sent me a digital big cheque and have promised to send me the usual big one plus a bottle of champagne as soon as it is safe to.

"I will keep self-isolating, washing my hands and not venturing out until everything changes back to normal."
