Lucky mum scoops £27K jackpot and treats family to winter holiday
A lucky mum from Pershore, in Worcester was celebrating this week after winning a £27k jackpot from a £1 stake at leading online bingo site galabingo.com.
The 48-year-old housewife was feeling unwell but decided to log on to the sites popular ‘Gold Mine’ slot game and it seems that winning really is the best medicine!
Within minutes of securing a £27,708 windfall she suddenly felt much better as the money has enabled her to finally renovate her bathroom as well as take a long earned holiday.
The ecstatic winner said: “I couldn’t believe that I had won! I just stared at the screen for ages in disbelief then had to call my husband and son to check I wasn’t seeing things. We all started jumping about with excitement!”
The family hasn’t been away together for over two years so are absolutely thrilled the win has enabled them to book a winter break. When they get back they are looking forward to installing a brand new bathroom as it hasn’t been renovated in twenty years.
She said: “Thanks to this incredible win I can take the whole family away and beat those winter blues! And, when we get back I’m looking forward to enjoying long soaks in a brand new bath tub!”
She added: “I always read about big winners at galabingo.com but I never thought that I would be one of them. It just goes to show that anyone can win.”
Lesley Hall, consumer PR manager at galabingo.com, said: “We have over 500,000 winners a month and never tire of hearing how they plan to enjoy their winnings. We hope the family have a fantastic holiday. And, with a winner every second on galabingo.com and £65 million being paid out every year we hope plenty more people get to enjoy a jackpot winning winter!”
