A LUCKY mum from Seaham is a millionaire after winning a Mecca Bingo jackpot twice within days.

It was a moment to remember for the bingo player, as she became a millionaire instantaneously after claiming a life changing £597,000 at MeccaBingo.com in October and then a further £552,000 just 10 days later.

The winner, who has asked to remain anonymous, may well be Britain’s luckiest woman after she recently opened an online account at MeccaBingo.com, deposited £100 and excitingly, won the first jackpot just a few hours later.

She continued playing and was astounded when she learnt she had won an incredible £552,000 more, making her a millionaire and MeccaBingo.com’s 'luckiest player ever'.

The lucky winner from Seaham said: “I was in utter shock when I won the first time and when I continued to play online I didn’t expect to win anything at all, let alone another large sum of money.

"It’s taken nearly a week to get over the shock of winning the first time and then I won again. Even now I'm scared to look at my bank balance.”

The mum-of-two, who was a regular visitor at Mecca Sunderland until her mother passed away earlier this year, has been generously sharing winnings amongst her family.

James Boord, Digital Director at MeccaBingo.com, said: “We’re delighted for the winner, what a fantastic stroke of luck she has had. We’re so glad MeccaBingo.com was able to help her with such life-changing opportunities. It’s a great feeling when someone wins big and its changes their life. We wish the winner and her family all the luck in the world.”
