Online gamer scoops £1.3m jackpot from a 25P stake

A 47-year-old woman from Milton Keynes couldn’t believe her luck when she bet just 25p on an online game and netted herself the £1.3m jackpot.

Online gaming company bgo has revealed that Angela New won the staggering prize on her favourite game, Gladiator, based on the Ridley Scott movie of the same name. A busy working mum of two children aged, Angela would normally be getting her kids ready for school in the morning, but during the half term holidays Angela had a moment of downtime and decided to log onto her bgo account while her children and husband were still asleep.

It’s just completely amazing and will change everything for us – we can pay off the mortgage, clear all of our bills and even give up work for a bit.”

Allan Turner, Head of Marketing at bgo comments: “We’ve had some fantastic wins on bgo in the past few months totaling a staggering £250m and we’re really pleased for Angela and her family – what a result! It shows that even by placing small bets you can win really big on your favourite games, whatever the odds!”
