One Halifax mum couldn’t believe what she picked up at Iceland, Iceland Bingo that is! Single mum Anne Marie Farrar has been playing online bingo for around two years but has never scooped a huge win, but all that has now changed as she has landed the Millionaire Genie progressive jackpot to the tune of £3.4 million.
The lucky winner is a regular at Iceland Bingo and scooped this jackpot with a 15p bet, winning a massive £3.4 million, the equivalent of a lottery jackpot!
Now the player intends on taking her sons to Disneyland and has bought her first home! She can hardly believe her luck becoming the second biggest winner ever at an online bingo site.
Anne Marie intends on keeping her job, she says it keeps her grounded, and with over £3 million in the bank it could be hard to do just that! She says she plays online bingo as a treat to herself, but could hardly believe her luck when she saw her balance change, and even called her mum to get her to check for her!
As usual the media are calling this a huge online bingo win, and that is a bit misleading as we’ve never known anyone win a bingo jackpot of this size in the history of the game. The jackpot was actually won on the Millionaire Genie, a slot game available to play at Iceland Bingo and not on bingo at all, so you might want to check the progressive slots jackpots not the bingo rooms if you’re hoping for a win like this one.
Either way it’s great publicity for online bingo, and it’s great news for Anne Marie Farrar who will no doubt be singing Iceland Bingo’s praises for a while now.
