Gambling Online | March 19, 2015
A retired nurse could hardly believe her luck when scooping a Â£221,000 win at a bingo hall, after thinking she had only managed to win Â£100.
Jean Murdoch, who was playing at a Mecca hall in Ayr, then capped off a memorable experience by bagging another Â£300 on a fruit machine before collecting her winnings.
After reaching 40 numbers to win the local prize, she took home the national jackpot as she also had a lucky star.
Jean, 73, said: Â"I wasnÂ't paying much attention when my numbers came up, so I thought IÂ'd won Â£100.
Â"When I was eventually told IÂ'd won the jackpot, I was a wee bit shocked, to say the least. It didnÂ't sink in and it still hasnÂ't.
Â"I go to the bingo at least twice a week with friends but, the day I won, I was on my own.
Â"The most IÂ've ever won over the years is about Â£500 so all my pals at the bingo are delighted for me.Â"
Jean has spent part of her winnings on a new car.
