£50,000 Christmas jackpot for King's Lynn Bingo regular
Christmas came early this year for one lucky bingo player at Ritz Bingo Kings Lynn, as she called ‘house’ on a whopping£50,000 Jackpot Prize on the National Bingo Game.
The married mother of two, grandmother of five and great grandmother of four, who has asked to remain anonymous, was enjoying a night out with two friends on Friday 29th November at Ritz Bingo Kings Lynn.
The evening took an unexpected and exciting turn: all her numbers came up while playing the National Bingo Game.
The lucky winner commented,“I have won the National Bingo Game Club Prize before so just expected that prize, but then my friend said I think you won some extra money other than the house prize, I said have I? How much? £5,000 she said. Then James the caller announced I had won £50,000. I just couldn't believe it and just cried. It's still sinking in really I don't know what do.”
“I will never forget the day I won, as it was my granddaughter’s 18th Birthday too: now she is old enough maybe I will bring her and introduce her bingo.
" I used to come with my mum and she played into her 90s and just loved it and so do I.
"I love my weekly bingo and enjoy dabbing my tickets: it keeps your mind active and if you win its a bonus.”
The lucky winner has made no big decisions regarding how she will spend her winnings, but expects to treat family and friends and celebrate with her husband of 65 years.
Club Manager at Ritz Bingo, Kings Lynn, Marcus Mott said: "It's Great when the club wins a big prize like this on the National Bingo Game as it brings a massive buzz to the club.
"So many people have been sending messages of congratulations to our lucky winner via our Facebook page. Its lovely when anyone wins, but when it’s someone who has been attended their local club for 50 years it's just fantastic.”
Alastair Stewart, Business Development Manager at the National Bingo Game said: “We are thrilled for our lucky National Bingo Game £50,000 Jackpot winner at Ritz Bingo Kings Lynn and hope that she and her family and friends enjoy celebrating her big win.
"We love making winners and over 105 £50,000 Jackpots have been paid out on the National Bingo Game in the past twelve months. We are looking forward to creating many more.”
