A GRANDMOTHER has scooped a massive £67,000 jackpot from just 5p playing online bingo.

Alison Bradbury, 60, from Castle Eden, won the life-changing amount of £66,508.18 while playing on one of her favourite 5p a spin Ladbrokes Bingo games.

The grandmother-of-nine, who had a triple heart bypass three years ago, only realised she had landed the jackpot when the firm contacted her to congratulate her.

Alison said: “When Ladbrokes called me I thought it was because there was a problem with my account.

“But when they told me I’d won nearly £67,000 I had to get my daughter to speak to them because my heart was going and having had a triple heart bypass I thought it’d be best if someone else spoke to them.”

The win now means Alison’s husband, Ken, can retire early.

Alison added: “Ken was going to work for another year or so, but it’s going to make such a big difference to our lives now he can retire early and we can enjoy our time together.”

Alison plans to save most of the money.

But she will be throwing a lavish party for her daughter’s 40th birthday.

Jessica Bridge, of Ladbrokes, said: “We’re over the moon for Alison and her family. The money’s going to change her life forever and we wish her and Ken all the best for their retirement.”
