A SCOTS cleaner has broken the record for the biggest-ever bingo win - and is splitting it with her lucky neighbour.

Soraya Lowell, 38, scooped just under £1.2million on the National Bingo Game at her local bingo hall over the Easter weekend in her first-ever win.

Soraya, from Hamilton, Lanarkshire, won the Platinum Jackpot on Sunday night, netting her £1,167,795.

But the generous mum-of-four has decided to give half of her winnings - more than £500,000 - to Agnes O'Neill, 68, her neighbour and bingo companion who was with her when she hit the jackpot.

Soraya said: "We always share whatever either of us wins and this time will be no different."

Agnes added: "I have had a rough time the last three years.

"I have been very ill and Soraya has cared for me, which meant my husband did not have to retire early.

"She has been wonderful to me. What she has done for me is absolutely something else."

Soraya's win beats that of Christine Bradfield, from Merthyr Tydfil in Wales, who scooped £1.1m in January.

National Bingo Game bosses say they believe the win could be the biggest in the world.

The Club 3000 bingo hall in Coatbridge erupted when Soraya called house on the last number, 90.

The party continued with husband Frankie, family and neighbours until 6am but, despite her win, Soraya has vowed to return to work.

She said: "It just won't sink in yet. I haven't slept at all, but I will be back at work as usual.

"I clean offices until 1.30am and I don't intend to give up my job.

"I like the girls I work with and they have already told me not to pack it in."

Soraya added that her three daughters, aged 13, 15 and 21, and her 19-year-old son have already offered to help her spend her winnings.

"They have all put in wee orders already. The two oldest want convertibles and don't even have licences yet."

Steve Baldwin, of the National Bingo Game, said: "This is our second millionaire in eight weeks.

"We aim to make more winners more often at bingo and love it when they are record-breaking wins."
