The crown of luckiest bingo club in the UK is a converted title indeed. Whilst Mecca Bingo Stockton has a very strong claim to be the UK's luckiest bingo club, north of the border has thrown up a competitor to the crown, in Scotland at least.
Buzz Bingo Aberdeen is enjoying a winning streak that few clubs have seen over that few years. Incredibly, two players took home a combined total of more than £80,000 in just a few days.
Lucky Dabbers at the Buzz Bingo Aberdeen venue shared a whopping £151,000 prize pot as part of the Birthday Cash Climber Jackpot to celebrate Buzz Bingo’s second birthday, on September 27th.
One delighted lady claimed a life-changing £75,734.07 share of the jackpot, whilst the other 1,203 players in the game walked away with their share of the remaining £75,734.07 prize pot.
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous has been a regular at the Buzz Bingo Aberdeen venue for more than a decade, said of the win:
“I was saying it’s not me, then, I checked my balance and saw over £75,000 in my account. I just couldn’t believe it!”.
The ecstatic winner had made plans to retire alongside her husband in a few years’ time. However, following the win, she has decided to hand in her notice early.
Buzz Bingo Aberdeen General Manager, Steve Longstaff, spoke of the win:
“I'm absolutely thrilled that one of our loyal members who enjoys visiting the club and playing at home online has won such a life-changing amount of money.”
Amazingly, another player took home £5,024 at the Buzz Bingo Aberdeen just a few days prior. The mother of five, who also wishes to remain anonymous, scooped the big win after staking just 10p! The lucky lady was shocked when she saw her account and realised she had won a lot more than £112 she thought she had won!
The delighted dabber said she’s extremely grateful for the win and is relieved that Christmas is sorted.
Stockton Remains King of the Lucky Bingo Clubs
In 2019, players at the Aberdeen bingo club took home a total of £1,931,835.53 making it the seventh luckiest Buzz Bingo club in Scotland that year. In England, it is fair to say that Mecca Bingo Stockton-on-tees is THE luckiest bingo club again this year.
Stockton is also the only club to have had two £50,000 National Game jackpots since reopening. Last year, it even celebrated a double of national game jackpot winners in the same week.
Just since opening in July, the club has given away the most prize money handing out a total of £1,166,044 in just a few months.
