Millionaire scratch card winner mistook winnings for pint of milk

A pensioner, who won £1 million on a scratch card, thought he had won a pint of milk.

Bill Bett, from Markinch in Fife, Scotland, scratched off the numbers on his Monopoly Millionaire card, but believed his prize which read '1 mil' was a milk freebie, according to BBC News.

Mr Bett insisted his shopkeeper had to drill it into him that he had in fact won the top prize and was now a millionaire.

He said: "When I saw the amount it didn't really click at first. On the card it reads 1MIL and I thought what does this mean - I've won a pint of milk?

"I went back into the shop and asked them to check it. They confirmed that I had won and that I'd have to call the Lottery line. I couldn't believe it but I actually remained quite calm."
