A 67-year-old woman who has been playing bingo for more than 40 years is celebrating after hitting the £50,000 jackpot while playing at a Mecca Bingo club earlier this month.

The player, who is only known as Susan, was playing at the Mecca club in Kingstanding, Birmingham, on February 2. She is a weekly visitor to the club and thought that it would just be a regular evening out. However, the mum of five was left shocked after winning the top prize in the National Bingo Game.

Initially, Susan thought she had won a £1,000 prize, not realising that she had not only won the local full house prize but also the National Bingo Game jackpot. The prize is won by achieving a full house within the first 16 calls.

The National Bingo Game is probably the best chance bingo players have to win a huge prize each day if they want to play in bingo clubs. However, those who want to play online have many more opportunities. All of the top online bingo sites, such as those featured on our site, have jackpots up for grabs around the clock.

Players’ Applause Causes Confusion

However, after calling ‘House’ Susan was left confused by the enthusiastic applause and excitement displayed by the other players. It was only when the club’s duty manager, Sue Edwards, came over to check her ticket and confirm the win that Susan became aware of how big her prize was. Speaking afterwards, Susan said:

“When I’m playing bingo, I don’t really pay attention to how much money is up for grabs. I just love playing! I called House and thought that everyone was making a very big fuss for a £1,000 win. I was playing with my husband who turned to me and said, “You’ve won the biggen!” I didn’t believe him and I am still in complete shock! Even when looking at the money in my bank account, I can’t quite believe it’s there so I haven’t really thought about what to spend it on. I might treat myself to a new car!”

Sue Edwards also offered her congratulations:

“We’re always thrilled for our winners but the £50,000 National Bingo Game jackpot is a real cause for celebration, especially when it’s a regular player! Susan was in complete shock when I told her. The atmosphere in the venue was electric and everyone was just so pleased for her.”

Plenty of Chances to Win the National Bingo Game

It is possible to take part in the National Bingo Game in bingo clubs right across the UK. It is available in Mecca Bingo, Buzz Bingo and Majestic Bingo Clubs, as well as those belonging to a number of smaller operators. The games take place twice every day, 364 days a year and it costs just £1 for a strip of two tickets or £2 for a strip of five tickets.

As mentioned, the £50,000 bingo jackpot won by achieving a full house in 16 numbers or less. There is a second prize of £1,000 for achieving a full house in 20 numbers or less and a prize of £100 for achieving a full house in 24 numbers or less.

While a £50,000 winner doesn’t come along every day, there are usually several each month. For instance, in January, there were five winners throughout the month, hailing from Blackpool, Barrow, Wakefield, Greenock and Drumchapel.

Huge Jackpots Available Online

Being licensed by the UKGC num. 2717, National Bingo Game is safe and offers perhaps the greatest opportunity for bingo enthusiasts to secure a substantial daily prize when playing in bingo clubs. Yet, the possibilities are even broader for those inclined towards online play on top bingo sites. Some of these will be in special bingo rooms and others will be available through special jackpot games. It is also worth remembering that most bingo sites have a large collection of jackpot slots as well, giving players further chances to win life-changing money.
