November has turned out to be a pretty impressive month for one lucky bingo player in Ireland, after not one, but two life-changing wins. Big cash is at the top of everyone’s wish list, but we can’t all win it. Hell, I’m lucky if I win one game per month let alone two within a fortnight – but some of us are luckier than others.
Christmas can be a worrying time for most with the cost of gifts and food spiralling out of control, but a mum-of-two from Ireland will have no worries about cash this year (or years to come), after bagging a record-breaking win – actually make that two record-breaking wins! A week after joining Mecca Bingo, the woman hit the headlines with the title ‘luckiest bingo player in Britain’ what with winning £597K and the sum of £552K just 10-days later.
Speaking to media outlets, the winner from Seaham, County Durham who wishes to remain anonymous said: “When I won the first time I was in utter shock and when I continued to play online, I didn’t expect to win anything at all, let alone another large sum of money. It took nearly a week to get over the shock of winning the first time and then I won again. Even now I’m scared to look at my bank balance.”
A Win Rocked by Tragedy:
It was tragedy that led the woman to win such large amounts of cash, a tragedy of losing her mother. The winner revealed how she used to play at Mecca Bingo in Sunderland with her mum, but when she passed away earlier this year, she went back to playing online and made her first deposit of £100 to start her online bingo journey. We don’t know what she did or how she did it but winning more than £1.1m in just two weeks is impressive!
James Boord, Digital Director at Mecca Bingo, said: “We’re delighted for the winner, what a fantastic stroke of luck she has had. We’re so glad MeccaBingo.com was able to help her with such life-changing opportunities. It’s a great feeling when someone wins big and its changes their life. We wish the winner and her family all the luck in the world.”
