Laura, her husband and two children then traveled to Ryanair headquarters to play for €1 million and ended up winning a cash prize of €100,000, as Liverpool Echo reports.
She hopes to spend her earnings on her family and her mortgage and may even realize her dream of opening a bakery.
“It was an amazing experience that I’m thrilled to be part of,” Laura said.
“Words cannot describe how lucky and blessed I feel about this amazing opportunity.
“When I bought this scratch card on a Ryanair flight to Portugal, I had no idea I was the lucky winner of €100,000.
“I can’t wait to celebrate my wins with my family who are here with me today, my friends back home and paying off my mortgage.
“Who knows, maybe one day I will even open my own bakery – a big passion for me.
“I am very proud to have supported Ryanair, which in turn supports the great work of so many charities, including Naomi House & Jacksplace in the UK, who work with children and young adults whose lives are limited and threatened, as well as with Their families.”
