Mum who was so poor she struggled to feed kids becomes millionaire after winning £500,000 twice in ten days

A MUM who struggled to care for her four children on benefits has become a millionaire after scooping a massive bingo of £500,000 twice in just ten days.

Anita Campbell, 51, from Seaham, County Durham, became Britain’s luckiest player landing £597,000 in her first win and followed it with a £552,000 haul.

The mum-of-four won the cash after only opening her Mecca Bingo account just a week before.

Anita has struggled with Universal Credit for more than a year and says she has even lost weight because she’s not able to eat properly.

After her win, she told The Mirror: “It’s still a bit of a dream. I’m over the moon. I still can’t believe it.

“I thought straight away, I can help my kids with this money.”

The mum-of-two, who was a regular visitor at Mecca Sunderland until her mother passed away earlier this year, has been sharing her winnings with her family.

She also used the cash to buy her 73-year-old father a new home as well as paying for her daughter to undergo IVF treatment.

Anita has already moved out of her home into a new property and has given away her old furniture.

She’s enjoying treating her children to shopping trips and even buying gifts for her grandkids.

Despite her big wins, she admits she still likes playing online Bingo.
