A 19-year-old bingo worker from Bishops Auckland in Durham is the latest National Bingo Jackpot winner.
Rebecca Walton called house at the Hippodrome Bingo in Bishop Auckland on Wednesday 26th August whilst playing a game with her mum. The club erupted into cheers when the jackpot £50,000 win was confirmed. And it is her mum that Rebecca has to thank for introducing her to the wonderful world bingo.
Reactions to Rebecca's Jackpot Win
As well as going to many bingo events with her mother, Rebecca is such a fan of bingo that she even works at the Apollo bingo club in Durham. Rebecca said of the win:
“I still can’t believe it! I was shocked and completely overwhelmed.
“The best bit about bingo for me has always been that I get to spend time with my mam, but I am very grateful for the £50,000, which was totally unexpected.
“I have decided to share the prize with my mam, buy a new car and put the rest into savings for the future – we will still be coming to bingo though, that’s for sure!”
The general manager at the Hippodrome Bingo venue said:
“After only being in the National Bingo Game for just over seven weeks – when all Majestic Clubs decided to re-join – we were delighted to win the top jackpot prize of £50,000, which is a life-changing sum of money for Becca.”
Meanwhile, Alastair Stewart, Business Development Manager at the National Bingo Game added:
“We are thrilled for Becca, our lucky National Bingo Game £50,000 Jackpot winner at Hippodrome Bingo.
“What a great boost to anyone’s savings account! We hope that she enjoys her winnings and the new car!
“It’s great to see that clubs big and small can win big on the National Bingo Game.”
The National Bingo game links up bingo halls up and down the country for a live game every afternoon, with the opportunity to win a £50,000 Jackpot prize.
