A player at Ladbrokes online casino won £1,364,745 while playing online bingo last week.
The winner, Lisa Potter from Witney in Oxfordshire won the jackpot with a £5 bet. Lisa decided to go online to get away from the Euro 2012 football tournament in her house when she decided to play the game. Ladbrokes has reported that it has seen a 400% jump in women playing bingo while their partners are watching the tournament.
Commenting on her big win, Lisa said: “I had a spare minute and wanted to get away from the football so I decided to log on. As soon as I saw the size of the jackpot I thought it was worth a go and I couldn't believe my eyes when it said that I'd won. I can't remember much after. It's all a blur. My kids came into the room and we all started screaming. It's like a madhouse in here."
A Ladbrokes Representative named Alex Donohue said: “We're absolutely over the moon for her. It's one of the biggest wins of all time and we've sent the champers along to kick off the celebrations. We bet she'll never moan at her man for watching the footie ever again.”
What are some of Lisa's plans for her winnings? She plans on purchasing a new house, car, and taking her family on a vacation. “We're a normal family so this will change my life forever." the new millionaire said.
Wow, what a lucky win! I can't even imagine my instant reaction to winning a huge jackpot like that. I think I would actually have a heart attack.
