Soccer Saturday Super 6: Jackpot won thanks to late Sheffield Wednesday winner
Last Updated: 18/03/18 12:40pm
The £1million Soccer Saturday Super 6 jackpot has been won by 59-year-old Jacqueline Packham thanks to an injury-time Sheffield Wednesday winner.
Atdhe Nuhiu secured a 2-1 victory for Wednesday at Yorkshire rivals Leeds with his goal in the first minute of injury-time at Elland Road.
That meant three points for the Owls and one million reasons for Jacqueline from Hailsham in East Sussex to celebrate!
She said: "I don't believe it! My brother called me to say that Jeff had said there'd been a Super 6 winner of my age in Hailsham, and I should give my scores a check.
"Then I got the call from Super 6 and I thought it was a scam, these things never happen to people like me.
"It's absolutely wonderful, amazing, I still didn't believe it after seeing it on TV, I still don't now!
"I've never got anywhere close before, I love football, love West Ham, but I've always been rubbish at Super 6, until today.
"I've got a friend who's a big Sheffield Wednesday fan, so I'm going to buy him a drink when I see him.
"I play Super 6 with my brother and always said to him as a joke 'this time next year, we'll be millionaires', like Del Boy and Rodney, but now it's true!"
Bournemouth also netted late to defeat West Brom 2-1 when Junior Stanislas struck in the 89th minute.
In the Premier League, Crystal Palace won 2-0 at Huddersfield and Everton defeated Stoke 2-1 to help Jacqueline on the way to the top prize.
Sheffield United's goalless encounter with Nottingham Forest and the 1-1 draw between Brentford and Middlesbrough were also part of Jacqueline's successful selections in the free-to-play Soccer Saturday Super 6 game.
