Woman who bought her boyfriend a winning lottery ticket divides the web as she asks for some of the prize money
A GIRLFRIEND has divided opinion after buying a winning scratchcard for her boyfriend – and then asking for some of the money.
The woman had given her partner a National Lottery scratchcard for Christmas which ended up winning him £500.
The dilemma was shared to the MoneySavingExpert Instagram account by a sibling of the brother.
They said that her brother should get to keep all of the money as the scratchcard was a gift.
The sibling wrote: “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” has divided opinions on what the brother should do.
Many people said he should pocket the money as the card then belonged to him.
One said: “It’s his and should be under no obligation to share it with anyone.”
Another agreed, saying: “Why would you share a christmas present? The ticket was a present FOR HIM so the product of that ticket is also for him to do what the hell he likes with it.”
A third insisted: “He should keep it for himself, it was a gift.”
However, some said he should at least spend the money on an activity or holiday they can enjoy as a couple.
One wrote: “If this was me I’d be booking a holiday away with said Girlfriend! Or something nice they can do together?”
And one commented: “Maybe treat her with it?”
