Lottery bosses are reportedly investigating a £4 million scratchcard won by two convicted crooks.
Mark Goodram, 36, and Jon-Ross Watson, 31, appeared to have embarked on a four-day celebration to celebrate the multi-million pound win.
But according to The Sun, lottery company Camelot is refusing to pay out the jackpot amid concerns the ticket was bought with a stolen debit card.
The newspaper reported that the winning scratchcard was bought with a debit card but when Goodram and Watson contacted Camelot neither of them had a bank account - prompting questions over how they had the debit card.
The pair had reportedly contacted The Sun to share their joy at the win, showing the paper the winning scratchcard as well as a pink receipt confirming the jackpot.
Goodram — who has 22 convictions for 45 criminal offences — told the newspaper: “I can’t wait to spend the lot. “I’m going to buy luxury properties and look after myself.”
Watson, who also apparently has burglary convictions, added: “I’m off on a Caribbean cruise, then to Las Vegas. But I need a passport first.”
According to the report, the pair first claimed they had used their last loose change to buy the ticket, but later said they had given a friend £10 to buy the scratchcard on his debit card, but did not reveal his name.
