A Welsh grandma plans to share her £20,000 winnings having used her husband’s numbers on the 49s lotto game.
The 58-year-old bet £2 on the numbers 2, 4, 5 and 7 at her local Betfred shop in North Wales – and they were all drawn out.
The mother-of-two and grandmother-of-four said: “My husband was just too busy on the day, and we decided I better get the numbers on as he’d been doing that same bet regularly.
“We haven’t made up our mind what we’re going to do with the money yet, but we might have a nice holiday abroad.
“It’s absolutely unbelievable, incredible really that we could win so much from such a tiny stake. We went for a meal in a local restaurant to celebrate.
“He’s always used those numbers, and we’ll naturally be sharing our windfall. It’s only right, because they’re his numbers which he’s been using for two years.”
Betfred boss Fred Done said: “Next time I’m on holiday in North Wales, I’ll be expecting a stick of rock from this grandma who has well and truly picked my pocket!”
