A bored mum who was suffering a constant stream of Euro 2012 games on TV has scoop a jackpot prize worth £1.3 million. Lisa Potter was nearly driven insane by her partner watching all the live football games from the Euro 2012 tournament. In a bid to block out the never ending football games she decided to try a game of online bingo.
She placed a £5 bet with Ladbrokes Bingo and within minutes she was a millionaire! She told the Daily Mirror: ‘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.'
Lisa is planning to treat her family members to a luxury holiday and a new house and car. She said: ‘We're a normal family so this will change my life forever. The first thing we're going to do is buy a new house before treating ourselves.'
The jackpot is third largest ever won in the UK, Ladbrokes have reports a 400% up take in online bingo since the start of the Euro 2012 competition! Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: ‘We bet she'll never moan at her man for watching the footie ever again!'
