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.

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. yahoophoto-Mark Goodram (left) and Jon-Ross Watson are reportedly on a bender celebrating their lottery win, though Camelot hasn’t yet paid out (Pictures: Facebook)
