The latest member of the millionaires’ club as a result of playing on an online bingo site is Anne Marie Farrar, a single mother from Halifax, West Yorkshire!
The 26 year old won a staggering £3.4 million last month on Iceland Bingo’s Millionaire Genie Jackpot slots game!
This online bingo win was the second biggest in Britain ever.
Anne Marie had only bet 15p on the game, and had only started playing bingo two years ago as a ‘treat’, said:
“I remember staring at the screen and seeing all these numbers, there was so many of them. I had this huge amount in front of me and I couldn’t believe my eyes! I called my mum to get her to check online that someone had won the prize and she said they had.
“I just can’t believe it’s me!”
She says she wants to take her two sons to Disneyland, but otherwise has fairly modest things on her wish list.
She has left her rented accommodation in Sowerby Bridge for a £155,000 three bedroom semi-detached house in Halifax.
Her next plan is to buy a Volkswagen Golf, once she’s learnt to drive!
Anne Marie wants to keep working and to remain grounded.
“I went to the Lake District last weekend with a friend and we had a few nice meals out and drinks, but nothing too extravagant”, she said. “I think it will take me a while to realise. I know how I live my life will change as I have so many more opportunities for me and the children, which is lovely. It is a huge win, but I want to stay grounded. I don’t think it will change me as a person.”
We think Anne Marie sounds very sensible, and we have no doubt she will make wise choices with her huge winnings!
And of course we just have to lastly congratulate Anne Marie and her family on their big stroke of millionaire bingo luck!
