Woman claims $1 million in bingo

SHORTER (AP) — A Montgomery woman won $1.1 million playing bingo at Quincy's Triple Seven Casino — the largest single bingo jackpot in the casino's history .

Cynthia Brown won the jackpot while playing a 10-cent video bingo game at the Shorter facility Tuesday, said Quincy's chief executive Milton McGregor

"I can't feel nothing but good since I won yesterday," said Brown, a regular bingo player at Quincy's.

It was Brown's second big payoff at the facility in Macon County.

McGregor said she won a $50,000 bingo prize last month.

Brown's payoff more than doubled the previous state high by a bingo mega-winner. She said she will continue to play bingo at Quincy's — in disguise.

"After we finish a trip to an island, I will be back — but wearing a wig," Brown said, laughing.
