It was a weekend to remember for David Biggs, 64, after scooping the £50,000 National Bingo Jackpot Prize at BJ’s Bingo Leigh.
The delighted dabber was playing the National Bingo Game at the BJ's venue with his wife Beverly having been introduced to bingo by his mum Patricia back in 2012. Since then, David and his wife have been Saturday and Sunday regulars at the BJ's Bingo Leigh every week.
A thrilled David said of the win:
“The numbers just came out one after another. When I called BINGO on the sixteenth number, I knew I’d hit the big money. I got up from my seat and did a little dance I was that chuffed.”
“Beverly had no idea, as she was not in the main area: when she came to find me and I told her the news she didn’t believe me at first and thought I was joking.
“When she realised, I was telling the truth we both looked at each other and were in absolute shock. Our big win just hasn’t sunk in.”
“We’ve got a few bits we can pay off, but as for the rest, we’ll just watch it grow into a nice little nest egg. We’re still in shock but it will be spent wisely. We love coming to bingo: we’ve made so many friends and it’s a fun night out with terrific value food and drinks: bingo brings people together whether it be family of friends.”
Party Time at BJ's Bingo
To celebrate the win of a much loved regular at BJ's Bingo Leigh, the club will be hosting a party on Sunday evening 25th October. All the players attending that evening will get to share David’s success and receive a gift set of wine and chocolates.
Andrew Tattershall, General Manager at BJ’s Bingo Leigh said:
“David and Beverley are well known and extremely popular customers within the club. It’s great to see such a life-changing amount being won by such lovely people.
“I was driving back from Bournemouth when I got the call from the club to say we had had a big win and had to pull-over. The team told me the atmosphere was amazing, all the customers burst into applause and started cheering. It’s great to have some genuinely good news in the present times.”
Meanwhile, the Business Development Manager at the National Bingo Game, Alastair Stewart, said:
“We are thrilled for our lucky National Bingo Game £50,000 Jackpot BJ’s Bingo winner and hope that David and Beverly enjoy their winnings: some treats are sure to be in order and we hope their luck continues.”
