Woman buys boyfriend winning lottery ticket then asks him for some of the prize

Winning the lottery is kind of a big deal.

And it's fairly understandable to want to befriend anyone who's ever won the jackpot.

But one woman caused quite a stir when she asked for some of the prize of her boyfriend's winning National Lottery ticket.

We can see why she thinks she's entitled to some of the £500 jackpot as she gave her boyfriend the scratchcard for Christmas.

Now a sibling of the lucky man has posted the head-scratching dilemma on the MoneySavingExpert Instagram page.

The person said her brother should get to keep all of the money as the scratchcard was essentially a Christmas gift.

Writing on social media, the sibling said: "Should my brother share his lottery winnings?

"My brother's girlfriend gave him a National Lottery scratchcard as a Christmas gift and he won £500.

"She thinks he should give her some of the money as she gave him the card, but I think he should keep it as the card was a present."

The "Money Moral Dilemma" divided hundreds of Instagram users who sided with the man.

One wrote: "No. It was a gift. If she'd given him a pair of pants or a car, would she expect half?

"I'd swerve her to be honest, she sounds like a divvy."

Another joked: "Give her the money it cost for the ticket."

A third claimed: "She shouldn't expect anything, as the poster said the card was a gift. You don't give to receive."

However, some Instagram users said the boyfriend should at least spend the money on an activity or holiday to enjoy as a couple.

One said: "If this was me I'd be booking a holiday away with the girlfriend. Or something nice they can do together."

Another added: "Maybe treat her with it?"
