A Windsor man enjoyed an even merrier festive season than usual after scratching an instant win scratch card and finding he'd scored the top prize of $75,000 (£46,675).

Wolfgang Schneider, who held off until the New Year before collecting his winnings, was over the moon at having finally won a sizeable amount of money, as his previous attempts at various games have not been particularly successful.

"It really hasn't sunk in yet," he added. "I've never won this much money before!"

The 68-year-old has two grown-up children and said he'd spend the winnings on his family first before paying off debts and going on a well-deserved holiday.
