Little did she know, that tiny card was her ticket to £250,000!

"Once I'd scratched it I couldn't believe my eyes," the 27-year-old from south-west Scotland told Metro. "I had to ask a couple of my colleagues to check if it was real. When I saw it in my handbag I actually thought to myself 'I could have been sitting here all day yesterday a winner'."

Scott says she plans to use the money to go on a "trip of a lifetime."

"When my sisters and I were young, mum always used to say to us 'if I win the lottery I'll take you to Disneyland.' With the win I’m going to be able to treat her instead. It's her 60th in October so I'm planning a family trip for then."
