Ladbrokes customer wins £150,000 to buy new house after Gateshead flood

Gateshead flood victim Lucy Storer, 29, can finally afford to buy a new house thanks to a £150,000 win from a £1 bet on Ladbrokes Lotto.

Customer services worker Lucy had been left homeless after the floods ravaged her area in June and was forced to move back in with her parents until her luck changed last weekend when a £1 bet on numbers, chosen at random, came home to land her a cool £150,000.

Football fan Lucy had previously only used the account for betting on her team Norwich and only knew of her windfall days later when she checked her account balance. The money will be used to buy a brand new property in the area.

Lucy said: "I'd never had a bet on the Lotto before so couldn't believe my eyes when I checked my balance after my first go. I'm still coming to terms with it as I've never won anything before. I'm over the moon as it means I can get back on my feet again. This win has changed my life!".

She also reflected on the situation in New York: "I can really sympathise with the people in New York at the moment and know just how it feels to have your life ruined by flooding."

Her old property is still on the market with Rightmove at £39,000 months after the flooding, complete with the sandbags which still protect the front door.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes told Bettingpro: "We're thrilled for Lucy. She's had more than her fair share of bad news so we're chuffed her luck has changed."
