ESSEX GIRL SET TO SPEND, SPEND, SPEND – After £884,332 Windfall From 40p


A 26 year old woman from Romford in Essex who has won over £880,000 for 40p from bookmakers William Hill has vowed to spend, spend, spend her winnings, declaring 'The world is my oyster' and starting with a 'holiday of a lifetime in Marbella, taking along some friends for the ride.'


Having dreamed last Saturday night that she was going to land a big win, two hours after waking up from the dream on Sunday morning, she played an online ‘Pig Wizard’ game on the William Hill Vegas site - and scooped her jackpot prize of £884,332.14 from a 40 pence stake. “This is the ultimate fairy-tale win, where a young lady has transformed her life for the price of a pack of gum,” said William Hill’s Head Of Gaming Ciara Nic Liam.


The winner, who currently lives with her mother and two sisters, and who wishes to remain anonymous, will also invest some of her winnings in property.


**Viv Nicholson, who won £152,000, aged 25, on the football pools in 1961 was the original “spend, spend, spend” girl, whose life story became a West End musical. She died, aged 79 in 2015.
