National Bingo Win For Cumbrian Gran

Posted by: BingoKath - Friday, Jun. 5th 2015 7:48 AM

A Great Grandmother from Cumbria is almost a quarter of a million pound richer after a win on the National Bingo game at her local bingo hall. The unnamed 84-year old from Wigton is to receive £239,966 after the win in the Opera Bingo Club in Denton Holme, Carlisle where she won the National prize played across the country simultaneously.

It’s a super win for the very lucky lady but it’s also a super event for the Opera Bingo clubs as it’s the biggest prize ever won in one of their clubs too!

The lady called the win in 46 calls, but as the game plays differently across the country it can take a while to get the results confirmed. After her session she went home, leaving the manager of the club to call and break the news over the phone. It’s a much bigger prize than usual with a rollover jackpot prize of £229,905 on top of the club prize of £10,000. The latter amount would usually be £20,000 but it was a double celebration from the north as another winner from Whitehaven also called, netting the other £10,000.

It’s brilliant news and a huge amount of cash, certainly life-changing in many ways! As we don’t have details of the winner we don’t know how she intends to spend the money, but as a mother of 8 and a great grandmother she’ll have plenty of people to spoil along the way.

Land Bingo might be popular with the older generation but it’s also a great way of taking the online game out for the night and as such it’s becoming increasingly popular with youngsters too. Check the National Bingo Game schedule at your local club!
