Bored woman becomes bingo millionaire
Gambling Online | June 18, 2012
An Oxfordshire woman has won Â£1.3m playing online bingo after taking to the game to escape Euro 2012.
Lisa Potter was bored after being ignored by her football-engrossed husband, leading her to place a Â£5 stake at Ladbrokes Bingo.
With just her second spin she won the huge rollover jackpot Â– the third highest in the gameÂ's history Â– making her an instant millionaire.
She plans to spend the money on a new house and car, as well as a family holiday.
"I had a spare minute and wanted to get away from the football so logged on. As soon as I saw the size of the jackpot I thought it was worth a go and couldn't believe my eyes when it said I'd won,Â" she said.
"I can't remember much after that as it's such a blur. My kids came into the room and we all started screaming together - it's like a madhouse in here."
