With all the news of bingo halls closing, it is always a welcome relief to report some good bingo news.
For one lucky punter, named only Andrew, they will have had a New Year to remember after scooping a life-changing £50,000 jackpot win playing The Big Buzz Special at his local Buzz Bingo in Basildon.
The happy dabber, a regular at the popular bingo hall in Essex, was unaware of the big win at the time and was “over the moon” when he found out his numbers came up.
Lesley Samuels, general manager at Buzz Bingo Basildon, said of the big jackpot win:
“We couldn’t be happier for our lucky winner, Andrew, and his fantastic win. What an amazing way to round off 2022!
“The Big Buzz Special is an exclusive game to Buzz Bingo played across all clubs, so for us to have a winner here is just fantastic. Everyone was cheering from their seats – it was such an exciting moment.”
Stevie Shaves, the Chief operating officer at Buzz Bingo, the UK's largest retail bingo operator, added:
“The atmosphere in club when there’s a win is always incredible, and we’re delighted to see one of our lucky members win £50,000 on the Big Buzz Special jackpot game at Buzz Bingo Basildon.
“Overall, Buzz Bingo players win more than £2m per week in bingo prize money, and we love to celebrate every one of them with our amazing community!”
Treating His Family
A delighted Andrew already had a holiday booked for him and his family to go to Orlando, Florida. With pockets bulging, Andrew says he will be using the money to treat the family with some upgrades.
Andrew also said that his daughter has a wedding soon, and he will use some of the winnings to make her special day even more special.
