It's a marvellous Monday for 15 fantastic players in Hull, all thanks to their postcode. The lucky neighbours found out that HU4 6UN netted each of them a thrilling £30,000 per ticket in today's Street Prize. One of our winners plays with two tickets and scooped a staggering £60,000!
In December's draws, our #30KADAY Street Prizes mean lucky winners will collect £30,000 cheques every single day.
Irene was one of our £30,000 prize winners. She found out how much she'd won during a video call with Street Prize Presenter Danyl Johnson. When he revealed her prize, Irene exclaimed, "Thirty-thousand pound! Oh my God, I could kiss you if you were here. I just can't believe it. It's absolutely brilliant!"
After a tough year, her win was the perfect way to brighten up Christmas. She said, "It means everything, we've had a bad year. It's a year where we've had illness with my two daughters both being poorly. So now, it's a good ending."
The retired cook is planning to spoil her family with her windfall. She said, "I can treat my two daughters and my grandchildren, which is just brilliant. They all come to me and I cook the Christmas dinner for my two daughters, their husbands and my two grandkids." Irene has been known to prepare Christmas meals for a few of her neighbours, too. She added, "If there's anyone else about, I'll plate up for them too."
Irene intends to treat herself in the coming year to a dream cruise. She said, "I won't be able to go on a cruise just yet, but I will be able to next year with my friend. I'd like to go to the Far East - Singapore and Dubai. So, it'll be brilliant, won't it?"
The Hull gran is also in the market for a new kitchen, but before that celebrations are in order. She said, "I've got some brandy in the cupboard, we'll open it!"
Irene was delighted to hear how many of her neighbours had also won. She said, "Oh, that's brilliant. I hope we'll be able to have a street party at some point. It's usually me that organises it."
After the call Danyl Johnson said, "It's absolutely amazing that so many neighbours have won together and I'm sure they'll all have a great Christmas and a happy New Year. Congratulations to all of the winners, I'm over the moon for them and I hope they enjoy spending their winnings."
