Patrons at the Leo Leisure Eastbourne bingo venue ‘erupted' with joy when one lucky dabber, who wishes to remain anonymous, called ‘House' on the National Bingo Game and winning a cool £50,000 jackpot prize in the process.
In amongst the big National Bingo Game Jackpots being claimed by the big chains like Mecca Bingo and Buzz Bingo, last week it was the turn of the small independent bingo club on the South East coast to claim a winner. It is the first National Bingo Game Jackpot won at a Leo Leisure bingo venue and the staff was just as delighted as the jubilant winner.
Mark Winter, manager at Leo Leisure Eastbourne, said of the win: “This is the biggest prize that anyone has won at Leo Leisure Eastbourne since I have been working here and I was excited to have called the winning numbers, so I can only imagine how the lucky winner feels.
“A big win always brings excitement for everyone in the club and it stayed with us for the rest of the session.
“The team here at Leo Leisure can’t wait to celebrate and we are having special ‘big win celebrations’ on the afternoon of October 17 with bubbly on arrival, free meal and a free game for a £200 cash prize for every player joining us for the afternoon session.”
Big Win Celebration
A National Bingo Game spokesperson added: “On Thursday, September 30 they set off for bingo not expecting to be shocked by the day.”
“At first they did not think they had won, and certainly not a top jackpot prize, so when the caller confirmed their claim was good they got that bingo feeling which comes from every win.”
“As the caller continued with their end of game announcement and confirmed that they had also won a £50,000 National Bingo Game jackpot, the winning buzz quickly turned to literal tears of joy and disbelief.”
Alastair Stewart, head of commercial operations at the National Bingo Game, said, “We are thrilled for our lucky National Bingo Game £50,000 jackpot winner at Leo Leisure Eastbourne and hope that they enjoy their winnings.
“We are sure that everyone joining in the ‘big win celebration’ at the club on Sunday will have great fun and may just win some great prizes too.
