A mother of two is celebrating a 'life-changing' win after hitting the jackpot on an online bingo site.
Jade Payne, who is from Lowestoft, was enjoying some time to herself when she placed a £10 stake on a Mecca Bingo game.
To her great surprise, the 25-year-old clearly had lady luck on her side when she triumphed to win a staggering quarter of a million pounds.
A lover of online bingo, the stay-at-home mum has been a Mecca member for a couple of years and has previously won a few jackpots, with the highest up until this point being £7,500.
After this latest success, she is planning to put the winnings towards buying a new house and cars for herself and her father, as well as spoiling her two children. She has also generously given her brother the deposit for a mortgage on his first house.
