In these distressing times, it's always good to report a bit of good bingo news.
For one lucky Rochdale lady coronavirus lockdown has proved quite fruitful indeed. The winner, who has asked to remain anonymous, scooped a huge online bingo jackpot win in just one game, banking a cool £49,646 through Mecca Bingo.
Having played online bingo for five years, but never in the main event, the delighted dabber said she ‘screamed with excitement’ the second she realised she had won.
Having never won anything like the sum of money picked up on April 7th, the incredible win is made even more special having played only one game with a stake of just £3.60.
The life-changing prize money will be used to purchase her first ever passport and go abroad on holiday with her family for the first ever time.
The Rochdale resident said of the win:
“I absolutely could not believe my luck when I saw that I had won, I’ve never been so excited, my heart was beating out of my chest. It was my first time playing a main event as well, I just can’t believe it still.
“My family have been through some rough times recently with illnesses and it was so refreshing to have something good happen. I just want my family to be happy and this will definitely help me to make that happen.”
