A bingo fanatic north of the border has won big at Betfred, scooping the “Crazy Cash” Jackpot of £32,939.06.
The mother of three from East Kilbride was in the Bonkers Bingo Room when all her numbers came up courtesy of just an 80 PENCE stake.
It’s been eyes down for the 57-year-old grandmother, who works in a university finance department, for at least 20 years – and now, even though she’s in the money, she’s keeping her feet firmly on the ground.
She said: “I didn’t want to start celebrating until I saw the money in my bank account. I was on my own at the time, and I kept thinking to myself ‘no way!’
“I’ve given my children some fun money, and we celebrated with a takeaway at home where everyone had as much as and whatever they wanted.
“I’ll probably have a holiday in Spain next year too once all the restrictions on travel are lifted and I’m going to get someone in to sort out the garden because it’s big and hard to manage, although I have done the conifers myself.
“I’m also going to change the front and back door, get myself a new kitchen and modernise the two bathrooms.
“It feels fabulous to have won so much from just 80p. I’ve been playing bingo since I was in my 30s and never dreamt I could win so much… but now I have thank to Betfred.”
Betfred boss Fred Done said: “This lady, who is a new customer of mine, has proved herself a star performer. She had a ball count of 29, so clearly she has beaten substantial odds to pick up the jackpot.
“Congratulations to yet another big Scottish winner.”
