YORK’S new lottery winners have told how a spur of the moment scratchcard choice led to them winning £1 million.

Carl and Amanda Ruddock have been catapulted to instant wealth after scooping the seven-figure sum – on a one-in-3.69-million chance. The couple, who have four children, say that top of their to-do list is renewing their wedding vows in style.

Although the couple regularly buy scratchcards, Amanda, 34, had never bought a National Lottery Millionaire 777 Scratchcard before last Thursday, when she picked one up from the Premier – The Stop Gap store in Monkton Road on her way home from working as a cleaner at the Evil Eye Lounge.

“The customer before me bought a 777 card, so I just decided to buy the same one even though it wasn’t my regular card, and started scratching it off on the way home,” said Amanda, who has been married to 26-year-old Carl for seven years.

“At first, I thought it was £100. When I saw it was £1 million, I must have read it about 100 times. I couldn’t believe it. Carl works night-shifts for IPS First so he was in when I got home, and I ran over to him to show him the ticket. I thought his head was going to pop – it just hasn’t sunk in yet.”

When the couple married, Amanda was pregnant so they had a small wedding, but they now plan to renew their vows and throw a huge party. Neither can drive so they will be both taking lessons, after which Carl plans to buy a Range Rover and Amanda a Hyundai.

Their two eldest sons, who are motorsport fans, have asked for new bikes, while Amanda hopes to fulfil her dream of starting her own cleaning business and Carl hopes to buy a Manchester United season ticket.

The couple also want to buy a new house in York, make investments and enjoy holidays in Florida, Australia and Barbados, although Amanda will have to overcome her fear of flying.

Carl said: “It will change our lives and our children’s lives completely, but it won’t change who we are and we’ll both keep working – it just means we won’t have to worry about money.”

The most Amanda had previously won on a scratchcard was £200, while Carl’s biggest windfall was £110. Amanda said: “Until I see the money in the bank, I probably still won’t believe it, and I might pass out when I do see it!”

"Carl hopes to buy a Manchester United season ticket"

Carl also wishes he didn't show his silly mug and mentioning that sad fact.

So previously, he's been sat at home in his 50 quid replica shirt watching Man U on Sky Sports, when thousands of people in the city he's supposed to be from have gone down to Bootham Crescent and watched some real football, live.

What a sad act, although he does look like the type.

Was going to post something congratulatory until I read that.

We're YORK and we're proud of it.

Who is the numpty? You for being offensive, or Carl for not buying a season ticket to watch 4th division football?

Personally, I hate Man Utd - that said, if he wants to spend money that way, let him.

Jealousy is not an attractive trait.

I'm not proud that you're from York with comments like that. As someone from York, I'm a little ashamed of you.

As for the 1000s of people in the city that watch YCFC - lets have a bit of a reality check shall we? The average attendance at York this last season, according to the stats was 3879. That does of course represent a flawed figure because it is artificially high due to a couple of "big" attendance matches. If they are factored out, the stat drops to nearer 2000. Hardly a ringing endorsement for your team given that at least 100k of York residents don't bother going/don't care.

I am YORK and proud of it - however, I'm not so proud of you. As I said in my earlier post, jealousy is an unnattractive trait.

Sorry, the average is flawed because it included games that were played which are calculated into the average total!?

I agree with the whole live and let live thing. Certainly not something to get wound up about is who supports what team.

Out of interest though why would you, a fan of football, 'certainly' not want to watch or put money into city...have they done something to upset you? Are you sure we couldn't get you along to a pre-season friendly? ;)

As opposed for being happy for them the majority are clearly jealous and hide under the cause of York City. I am sure York City are very happy for them too!

The average attendance is just shy of 4,000 which isn't too bad. In comparison to the people who live in the city, percentage wise it's no worse or better than most football league teams. Obviously the premiership is in it's own little world.

Well as long as they've not upset you that's the important bit!

If City can secure the services of Nigel Worthington for next season I am sure lots of people will be wanting to watch them, judging on City's efforts and style of play over the last few games.

FFS how does this good news story end up boiling down to what football team someone supports. York City fans, celebrate staying up. Man Utd fans, celebrate winning the league. Personally could not give a toss what they spend THEIR money on, just nice to hear that they have a bit of security for the future and a chance of doing things that most of us could only dream of.

I told you are all missing the serious point to this article and I can't believe I'm the only one to mention it.. but why the f*** are they under that umbrella? It's sunny in the pic!

Good luck guys. ...enjoy it but please spend it wisely and invest well. I found out the hard way when I won the lottery some years ago. The number of friends that popped up when they found out was unbelievable! I can't believe how mercenary people get when you win a tenner!

Reading comments from the pro and anti City fans does show we do have some very strange people who live in York!

I hope they enjoy their winnings maybe to make everybody happy they could buy a season ticket for York City as well - they don't have to go but it will help their home city.

Why was it brought up? He's the one grinning into the interview like some fool who's wearing a shirt for the first time in his life saying he's a Man U fan.....despite saying he's "from York."

I'm sure the tourists who moved here for the gift shops don't get it, as proven with the outsiders above.

Ok I'll answer for you. NONE!

So, how is it that he doesn't support a "local" team, yet you do?

Typical footy fan ain't you. Full of sh1T.
