Glasgow woman scoops first bingo club £1m

A mother-of-two from Glasgow has become Britain’s first online bingo club millionaire, just weeks after being made redundant.
Margaret Shearer, 46, scooped the £1m jackpot at a lunchtime bingo session at a Bingo club in the city.

Ms Shearer, who was playing with her mother Margaret Money, only went to the game because she had lost her job at a biscuit factory three weeks ago.

The win came just weeks after the gaming laws were relaxed to allow such huge prizes in clubs.

Ms Shearer, from the Ruchazie area of Glasgow, had worked at the McVitie’s factory in Glasgow until she was laid off last month.
