At BingoDaily, we've reported on countless life-changing sums being won at bingo clubs up and down the country. The latest big win, however, was scooped online and not a club, as one lucky Liverpool lady is now £74k richer after spending just 50p on an online bingo ticket playing Mecca Bingo online.
The married mum-of-one who wishes to remain anonymous had only taken up playing bingo during the lockdowns after friends and family recommended playing the wonderful game of bingo.
The mystery lady who plays online bingo under the chat name JPC1104, won a grand total of £74,042.02, said she intends to spend some of the loot renovating her new house as well as paying off a few of the household bills. The life-changing win has allowed her to bring forward the renovations and the first job on the list is a new bathroom. She also hopes that there is enough money left over to buy herself a new car, with her heart set on a Volvo.
Despite considering herself a “famously unlucky person”, the delighted dabber said:
“I was so surprised when I won, all my husband and I could think to do was to order a takeaway and a bottle of wine to celebrate – we definitely kept it low key.
“He's more in shock than I am, so we're giving it a bit of time to let it sink in before we all go out to celebrate in style.”
Catherine Warrilow, the outgoing Head of PR and Content at MeccaBingo.com, added:
“We’re so happy for our fabulous winner and we’re thrilled that she is using her winnings to create the perfect home for her family.”
