Hundreds of neighbours from Wishaw have been left stunned after learning their community has won £7.9 Million with People's Postcode Lottery.
The cash windfall is the biggest single prize fund to be awarded in Scotland in our history. Winners in the area have already been told they have each scooped a minimum of £1,000, but the full winning amounts won't be revealed until Saturday 26th February.
The prize will be divided between players in the winning postcode sector of ML2 0. However, when the full winning postcode is revealed on Saturday, players on one street will receive the biggest prizes and can each expect to net a six-figure sum.
Winners in the area have been invited to an exclusive event where they'll receive their golden envelopes and learn how much they've each won.
People's Postcode Lottery Presenter Judie McCourt said, "I am so excited for our Wishaw winners and can't wait to bring them this fantastic news. I'm sure they'll all be excited for Saturday, and I think this surprise will make their weekend!"
