FINANCE director Sue Hope made her best investment ever with a £3.20 play on an internet game that won her a £720,000 fortune making her Britain's most successful female gambler.
Sue, 42, landed an astonishing £720,167.30 on William Hill's Fairest Of Them All slot game beating the previous biggest ever female punter Agnes Haddock, 54, who won £688,620 on the ToteScoop6 TV bet in February 2007.
Sue, 42, took the calculated risk of splashing out less than the cost of her usual £4.90 glass of Rioja after pals stood her up on a night out at Newcastle's trendy As You Like It bar for leading her to the best financial investment of her lifetime.
And smiling Sue, who currently lives in a two-bed rented flat in Gosforth, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, was stunned to become a female record breaker with her remarkable spin of luck.
Agnes, of Northwich, Cheshire, who sold her ironing business after her massive Scoop6 win, said: 'Congratulations to Sue she has beat me fair and square with a win that is about £32,000 bigger than mine. As the years went on I was really hoping another lady would have some sensational luck and it's finally happened.
'And I love the fact that she's determined to ensure that it not only changes her life, but that of others. It's a great case of girl power and I wish her well.'
After her win Sue proclaimed: 'It's a life changing sum, but it's not just going to change my life.
'The business I work at Eastern Seals in Northumberland is thriving, but like with every small business in Britain during the recession cashflow has been an issue.
'I've not stopped smiling since I got stood up - as if I'd gone out for a drink I'd have been in the taxi on the way home when I hit the jackpot.
'I watched some telly including the comedy Hebburn with Vic Reeves and then jumped in the bath, but I started thinking perhaps all this is telling me to have a go on the slots machine so I logged on to www.williamhill.com and in the middle of the Las Vegas slots was one called Fairest Of Them All.
'I decided to spend the equivalent of a couple of glasses of wine on the game as it said it had the biggest jackpot and when I played for £3.20 - not even the price of a large glass of red - this Blue Prince appeared on the screen.
'It's worth more than a £1million in wages and it would take me a lifetime to earn that, but it's great as I won't have to pay tax on it.
William Hill spokesman Rupert Adam said: 'We are delighted to have made Sue the most successful female punter of all time.
'It's a fantastic win and a record for a woman in the British gambling industry - it's a staggering sum from a £3.20 spin.
'I am certainly surprised just how expensive a glass of red could have been if she had gone out with her pals and missed the jackpot.'
