It’s not everyday that you go about your morning’s work and someone hands you £250,000.
So Kyle McKenzie will remember today for a long time to come.
Kyle bought a scratchcard in York this morning (Tuesday) – and hit the jackpot, winning a quarter of a million quid.
Now he is already planning how to spend his winnings.
Good weekends in store
Kyle works at Knavesmire Butchers on Albemarle Road. One of his jobs is to take the order down to South Bank Stores on nearby Balmoral Terrace.
“I took the order down, bought a scratch card for £2, got back to the shop, scratched it – 250 grand!” he told Minster FM.
He said he could hardly believe it, but “it’s there – I’ve just got to claim it”.
So what’s he going to do with the money?
“I’m going to have some good weekends! I’m going to get a house, car, holidays – I’m going to go wild.”
Diamond ring required
Among the first to congratulate Kyle was the owner of South Bank Store.
“Massive congratulations to Kyle (Knavesmire Butchers) who as just scooped a whopping quarter of a million pounds on a £2 scratch card,” they wrote on their Facebook page.
“Kyle has brought a massive buzz to Southbank today with his fantastic win!”
His girlfried Ellie Hodgson joked on Facebook: “I want a big diamond ring now!”
He won on the National Lottery Gold Game, which offers only 15 prizes of £250K.
Once Kyle claims his prize, there’ll be four left to get.
