A mother-of-two from Glasgow has become Britain's first bingo club millionaire, just weeks after being made redundant.
Margaret Shearer scooped the jackpot at a lunchtime session
Margaret Shearer, 46, scooped the £1m jackpot at a lunchtime bingo session at a Mecca 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.
She said she was stunned at her win at the Glasgow Forge branch of Mecca.
"It's not sunk in yet," she said, adding: "I just haven't a clue what I'm going to do with the money. It's such a enormous amount that it's difficult to grasp what it really means."
She said she had experienced hot flushes before she started playing the lunchtime session, and "just felt that something was going to happen".
A spokesman for Mecca said Ms Shearer had been a member for 30 years and her mother was her regular playing companion.
The spokesman said: "She is superstitious, and always carries a miniature Buddha figure in her handbag."
Grant Munro, manager at the club, said: "Her face was a picture of stunned silence, but the rest of the club went absolutely wild and they were all so pleased for her.
"It was just bedlam but right now she's the calmest person in the club."
Mecca said the millionaire game was introduced on 1 September with the relaxation of gaming laws.
The spokesman added: "This is the first time someone has been able to win this huge sum of money at a bingo club."
The gaming firm had previously estimated that a millionaire would be created every 45 days, but the win came on the 21st day into the game.
Angela Kelly, 40, from East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, scooped £35.4m in a EuroMillions draw last month. The Royal Mail worker was "flabbergasted" after landing the UK's biggest lottery prize.
