Lightning Strikes Twice for Lucky Sheerness Dabber

Home » Lightning Strikes Twice for Lucky Sheerness Dabber

They say lightning doesn't strike twice. Well, no one told that to one lucky dabber who, 24 years after scooping a whopping £107,000 playing bingo, Kent took home a second life-changing win, claiming the National Bingo Game Jackpot at the Kings Bingo Venue in Sheerness, worth a cool £50,000.

The delighted 75-year-old Bingo regular who wishes to remain anonymous, has been playing the wonderful game of bingo ever since she was 18 and was introduced to the game by her mother when they both used to go to bingo in Sittingbourne.

The Sheerness local, who has three children, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren was playing bingo on Monday 11th December at King’s Bingo, when things took an unexpected and exciting turn: they called ‘house’ on the National Bingo Game and bagged £50,000 in the process.

With no immediate spending plans beyond making it a Christmas to remember for her family, the jubilant winner will see in the New Year before deciding what to do with the money. She said:

“Anybody who’s thinking about going to Bingo, just go for it! I always enjoy playing. It’s not just about winning, though it’s lovely when you do, it also gets me out of the house.”

Minnie McCoy, Owner of King’s Bingo Sheerness said of the win, the first National Bingo Game Jackpot Win in the club since Bingo fan Minnie purchased the club in 2019 with husband Tom:

“We were all very excited on the night of the win and are very happy for the lucky winner – it’s a great feeling when a customer gets a big win and this is my first big win at the club since taking over. It is amazing to know that our caller Clive has proven to be such a lucky charm for the winner! We are hoping that his luck creates more jackpot winners, especially this Thursday when the National Bingo Game is half-price to play. Imagine winning on a half-price ticket!”

Alastair Stewart, Business Development Manager at the National Bingo Game added:

“We are thrilled for our lucky National Bingo Game £50,000 Jackpot winner in Sheerness and hope that they enjoy their winnings – they can certainly splash out this Christmas and in the January sales too! What a great way to start the New Year!”
