Mecca Bingo player Takes a £50,000 Jackpot
The jackpot winner from Oldbury, who has been playing online with Mecca for two years, won the large money prize on Monday, 30th of November while playing in bingo room Dancing Queen. Launched to coincide with Mecca Bingo’s ‘Be Lucky’ TV campaign, players were offered the chance to win the jackpot which was guaranteed to go by the end of the month, by simply playing on any standard 90 ball bingo game.
To make the promotion even more exciting, Mecca Bingo increased the ball count hourly on the deadline day, making it easier for players to win and ensuring one lucky member walked away with the fantastic prize. The ball count was at 44 when The jackpot winner struck it lucky.
Also a member of the Mecca Oldbury club, The jackpot winner is a big fan of bingo and likes to log onto Mecca Bingo as often as possible, commenting: “I work as a carer and have three teenage children, so playing online is perfect for me as I don’t get many chances to go out.
“I had heard about the £50,000 jackpot and as it was the final day and the ball count was going up, I decided to buy some extra tickets on and play a few different games, so I wasn’t actually looking at Dancing Queen when I won. It wasn’t until I saw my balance go up that I realised something had happened!
“Everyone in the chat room started to congratulate me, but I didn’t believe that I’d actually won that much. The chat moderator confirmed the amount and I was stunned! I still am! It’s what everyone plays for, but to win this much is a shock.
“We have had a run of bad luck this year and this win was much needed to lift our spirits after our car was written off and a close family member sadly passed away. The money will go towards a new car and hopefully a holiday to somewhere hot for all my family. We have only had one holiday abroad in the last 18 years and that was to Turkey. We enjoyed it so much that we would love to go back.”
According to Mecca Bingo’s recent survey about luck, the West Midlands is the 12th luckiest area for winners and The jackpot winner has certainly proven this, commenting: “I believe that you make your own luck. You have to stay positive to be lucky.”.
All players playing in Dancing Queen at the time The jackpot winner won have also been very lucky, after Mecca Bingo shared a community bonus of £5,000, giving them all something to celebrate.
