"In the last two years Ryanair's scratchcards have given away 10 cars, more than €300,000 in cash prizes and more than 100,000 flight vouchers," he said.
Since the prize will now go unclaimed, the money will be donated to charity, he added.
The winning charity will be chosen from a list of five charities in a web vote.

You're right Shutter.  It's the scratchcard company that makes the payment.  They run it on Ryanair's behalf and the airline get a cut from the ticket sales.  It's all on the back of the scratchcard.

He said the airline crew did not have the cash "kicking around the aircraft" and in any case the prize had to be collected directly from the scratchcard company.
