It was a night to remember for one lucky dabber at the Buzz Bingo in Stockport on Sunday August 23rd.
Just 11 days after reopening following the four-month lockdown, the popular bingo venue in Stockport enjoyed a party atmosphere after a flabbergasted lady called ‘house'.
The life-changing win of £50,000 on the National Bingo Game Jackpot, which links up bingo halls up and down the country every afternoon for live games, could not have come at a better time for the player who wishes to remain anonymous. Recently, her husband was made redundant from his job and they are also in the process of moving house.
The ecstatic winner said:
“It couldn’t have come at a better time as my husband has just been made redundant and we are moving house. Thank you to all the staff at Buzz Bingo Stockport, I really do enjoy my time there. My mum was an avid bingo player herself and I feel she is looking over me.”
Her fellow bingo-goers at the Buzz Bingo venue in Newbridge Lane, erupted into cheers to celebrate, creating a party-like atmosphere and an evening the long-time bingo player will never forget.
The win at the Buzz Bingo Stockport club means that Buzz Bingo clubs, many of which are opening today, have claimed two National Game Jackpot winners in the space of just a few days. Just two days earlier, Buzz Bingo Gateshead saw a jackpot winner.
For Buzz Bingo it has been an eventful few months. Having entered into a CVA and announced the closure of 26 of its 117 clubs, there has been some positive bingo news of late. First, the Buzz Bingo Carlisle surprise closure reversal and now some big jackpot wins in its clubs.
Party Time at Buzz Bingo Stockport
Kevin Carrigan, General Manager at Buzz Bingo Stockport, said of the win:
“We can’t believe that just over one week after reopening we’ve had a player win the National Game and scoop the big £50K prize; we’re utterly delighted to bring a little happiness to the community. The club erupted into a party atmosphere when they won, it was incredible – everyone was celebrating with the winner. It’s certainly a moment we won’t forget.”
To celebrate the win Buzz Bingo will host a party at the Stockport bingo club on the evening of Saturday the 5th of September. Everyone is welcome to celebrate the lucky winner, with the invitation open to new and existing Buzz Bingo members.
