Big Betfred winner Loraine Walkingshaw isn’t just going on one holiday after her good fortune… but three!

The retired auxiliary nurse from Midlothian, Scotland won £50,000 from a £1 stake on the 49s numbers game – and she’s wasted no time on deciding what to spend it on, with Caribbean and Mediterranean cruises plus a Christmas trip to New York to see the giant tree in Times Square on the agenda.

The 65-year-old, who has two children and three grandchildren, wants the rest of the family to join her and husband William on the various trips if possible.

To land the £50k jackpot, her five numbers - 42, 43, 45, 46 and 47 – all came up in the 49s Numbers Results.

Explaining the reasoning behind her selections, Loraine said: “I’m superstitious and always think the bigger numbers come out in the winter, but despite the 20th being the summer solstice which is the longest day and marks the start of the season, I stuck with those numbers I’ve been using for five years or more.

“We’ve not been able to celebrate because we’re still in shock, but we have already thought about holidays!”

Betfred boss Fred Done said:

“Loraine has looked after people as an auxiliary nurse and carer her whole working life and now at the age of 65 she fully deserves her good fortune and the chance to travel the world.

“Good luck to her. I’m chuffed that she’s able to go on three great holidays for the sake of a £1 wager.”
