Cleaning Lady Wins £1.2 Million Playing Bingo

In an astounding run of good luck, a cleaner from Hamilton, Scotland, Soraya Lowell won a £1.2million pound bingo ($1,721,962 USD) jackpot. It gets even better; the next night she returned to the same bingo hall in Coatbridge, Lanarkshire and won an additional £200. ($294 USD)   As if that wasn’t enough, she won an additional £43 ($63 USD) in a lottery syndicate she is part of!

Mrs. Lowell stated, “I must be on a lucky run just now, but I still can’t get my head around that amount of money. It just won’t sink in at all.” She insists that the big bingo win will cause no major changes in her life. She plans to keep on working and indicated she will continue to drive the same Vauxhall Astra and plans no vacations.

Mrs. Lowell also plans to share her good fortune with her bingo partner of 20 years Agnes O’Neill. Mrs. O’Neil said, “There wouldn’t have been any malice from me if Soraya had decided to keep the money herself but she insisted that we do what we’ve always done. Soraya is just brilliant. I don’t keep well and she does absolutely everything for me. I’m lucky to have her.”

Mrs. Lowell’s husband is unemployed and the couple have four children ages 13 through 21. The Lowell’s, who live in council housing, do not plan to move and Soraya stated, “We won’t be moving house either. I love my house and I love my neighbours so there’s no reason for me to move.” Soraya did admit to one indulgence, she parties until 6 am the night of her big bingo win. It is truly refreshing to read about the good fortune of such an unselfish person.
