A grandmother from Yorkshire has started off 2013 with a bang! The lucky lady was playing bingo on the Ladbrokes Bingo site when she won one substantial jackpot, but returning to the site later she won another far bigger one.
The first win was for the tidy sum of £31,000. It is easy to imagine the excitement and elation that this win brought the lady and her family and friends, however, the good luck did not end there.
After the excitement had died down a bit the grandmother decided to try her luck again. She went back onto the Ladbrokes site to take part in the popular Bouncing Balls game; she bet the sum of just £10. Suddenly eight jackpot symbols lit up her computer screen indicating that she had won yet again. Very satisfied that she appeared to have won £500 this very lucky player was astonished when, after closer inspection, it dawned on her that she had in fact scooped a quarter of a million pounds.
“I had already had an amazing run and was chuffed to pieces,” stated the lady. “I then saw the £500 and was over the moon but slowly it dawned on me that I may have landed the big jackpot. It must have only been seconds in real time but it felt like hours until it was confirmed. I’ve barely slept since.”
Of course the question about what she intended to do with the winnings was eventually asked. A new house was, perhaps unsurprisingly, at the top of her list, closely followed by a great holiday for her children and grandchildren.
This could be described as a very positive start to 2013 for this twice-lucky bingo player.
