Bingo clubs have only been open for a little more than a week and already we have our first National Bingo Game Jackpot winners.
In fact, it was on opening day on Monday, May 17th that one lucky winner, took home the £50,000 jackpot at Buzz Bingo Gateshead, just hours after it reopened following a five month forced closure.
The happy dabber from Gateshead, who wishes to remain anonymous, was one of three players at Buzz Bingo venues to win the £50,000 jackpot in the reopening week, which saw a further £400,000 paid out throughout the UK.
The jackpot winner at Buzz Bingo Gateshead had been a regular for many years at the club, which used to be a Gala Bingo. In 2018, the club rebranded as Buzz Bingo with two £50,000 jackpot winners in the months preceeding the rebrand. Since becoming a Buzz Bingo, the popular bingo venue in the Metro Centre has now celebrated three more jackpot winners on the National Bingo game. The last jackpot win at the Buzz Bingo Gateshead was in August 2020 before the latest lockdown.
“Everyone Was Cheering”
Ronnie Hall, general manager at Buzz Bingo Gateshead, said:
“It was amazing to watch our lucky winner bag herself the £50,000 prize.”
“Everyone was cheering from their seats – it’s such a special way to celebrate reopening after a long time apart.”
“We’re thrilled to have our customers back in our club.”
“On reopening day, it was clear that our regulars have missed us dearly, and that we’ve missed them too!”
The jubilent winner was roundly cheered by other dabbers when she called ‘house' and now she wants to share her good fortune with her best friend, with a holiday to Las Vegas when travel restrictions are eased and it is safer to travel internationally again.
We look forward to sharing more good bingo news as when it happens!
