When Lisa Potters' boyfriend settled down to watch yet another European championship match on TV Lisa felt a wave of desperation sweep over her… The prospect of another 90 minutes of football was too much for her to bear.
Lisa decided to log on to her favourite online bingo site (ladbrokes bingo) in a bid to escape the euro 2012 match between Spain and Ireland.
The match had just kicked off when Lisa landed a £1.3 million jackpot! She was stunned as Lisa had only wagered £5 to win the 3rd biggest jackpot ever paid out in the UK. Ladbrokes Bingo handed over a cheque for £1,364,745.23 to the Oxfordshire based family, they even threw them a champagne party to get the party started.
After the win Lisa said: “We’re a normal family so this will change my life forever. adding “The first thing we’re going to do is buy a new house before treating ourselves.” Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We’re absolutely over the moon for her.”
