Bingo Player Scoops 29000 Pound Jackpot

A bingo player from Workington in the UK has won a massive £29,000 jackpot at her local hall. Diane Stagg, who is an ambulance worker, says that she plans to spend some of her winnings on a special trip to Las Vegas to celebrate her upcoming 50th birthday.

Diane is the not the only player to win big at Opera Bingo chain, with another lucky winner Roselyn Murphy winning £15,000 just a month before plus another two ladies claiming £5,000 respectively. Shaun Edwards, who is Opera Bingo’s operations director, said, “We seem to be having a lucky streak at our clubs at the moment. This takes our big money wins at just two of our clubs to around £37,000 in the space of seven days.”

Diane beat off a host of competitors from all cross the country to scoop the national prize, as well as claiming the club bingo jackpot – rounding her winnings to just under £30,000. One can only imagine what it must be like to win such a huge prize, and the things that one could do with a lump sum like that.

In the online bingo world, sites like Bingo Gringo have given away jackpots as high as this to lucky players who scoop the online bingo jackpot – showing that the online version is just as lucrative as the offline version.
