A WILTSHIRE woman became £300k richer after she won on a National Lottery scratch card.

The mystery winner, known as Ms. M, played the 'Triple Cashword Yellow' instant win game and scooped the top prize.

Ms. M became one of over eight million weekly National Lottery winners and plans to go on holiday and treat her family with her £300,000 bundle of cash.

Andy Carter, senior winner's advisor at The National Lottery, said: "Huge congratulations to Ms. M for winning this fantastic prize. After just a few taps, she can look forward to life £300k richer!"

Triple Cashword Yellow is a £3.00 instant win game available on The National Lottery app with a 1 in 2.7 overall chance of winning a prize.

Thanks to National Lottery players, more than £30M is generated each week for National Lottery-funded projects. This money helps support everything from local charities through to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

To date, over £45BN has been raised for National Lottery Good Causes, with more than 660,000 individual grants awarded.
