Joy D scooped a life changing £259,714 playing in the 5p Deal or no Deal game at jackpotjoy this September, and the shock was something else!
“I really and truly can’t believe it,” the overjoyed winner told us. “My husband is still convinced it’s a mistake! I won around 9:30pm last night but I had to try going to bed three times before I could sleep!”
She enthusiastically described her encounter with the banker.
“I had a feeling I was going to win it, just a feeling. I got through to the bonus round 5 or 6 times, but I wouldn’t stop – I knew I was going to get it.
“By the end I only had two boxes left – £50 and the Jackpot. The Banker offered me £83 and there was just no way I was going to do a deal!
I just sat there thinking ‘oh my goodness’ … and then I burst into tears! I went and said to my husband ‘I’ve just won a quarter of a million pounds’!
“This is such a life changing amount of money, I can’t tell you how much it will change our lives. I called my son and told him I was paying off his student loans. My daughter’s going to come back from Austria to celebrate with us. It’s just amazing.
