A Ryanair customer based in Liverpool won a massive €100,000 as a prize from a €2 charity scratch card.

On April 15, Ryanair announced the lucky winner of its annual ‘Win A Million’ event. Laura Mereacre, who moved to Liverpool over five years ago from Portugal, walked away with a massive prize of €100,000. She visited Ryanair’s HQ in Dublin with her husband and two children to play for the sum of €1m, having bought a winning €2 Ryanair charity scratch card on a flight to Portugal earlier this year.

The charities supported by Ryanair across Europe with the ‘Win a Million’ game include the UK’s Naomi House & Jacksplace, The Jack & Jill Foundation in Ireland, Make A Wish in Italy, Kinderhilfe in Germany, Fundação Do Gil in Portugal and many more.

Ryanair’s Director of Marketing, Dara Brady, said:

“We were thrilled to welcome Laura and her family to Ireland, and having walked away with €100K – Ireland truly is the land of a thousand welcomes! The atmosphere was electric – Laura had everyone gripped as she played for the big €1m prize.

“Through the sale of our scratch cards – which to date has generated over €10m – Ryanair has continuously supported incredible causes across Europe. Every year our generous customers purchase Ryanair scratch cards with the aim of giving back – so make sure to grab a scratch card on your next Ryanair flight, and be in for the chance to win €1m.”

The lucky winner, Laura, said:

“This has been an amazing experience that I’m delighted to be a part of. Words can’t describe how lucky and blessed I feel by this amazing opportunity. When I purchased this scratch card on a Ryanair flight to Portugal, I never imagined myself as the lucky winner of €100,000. I’m looking forward to celebrating my winnings with my family who are here with me today and my friends back home and paying off my mortgage. Who knows, I may even open my own bakery one day – a huge passion of mine!

“I’m very proud to have supported Ryanair, who in turn support the great work of so many charities, including the UK’s Naomi House & Jacksplace, who work with life-limited and life-threatened children and young adults, as well as with their families.”
