Big Bingo Winners In The £200K Jackpot Game

Thursday, Oct. 1st 2015 7:12 AM

For a couple of months there were many sites all bragging that they were offering a big £200K jackpot to their players, often with no mention that the game was linked with multiple sites. Similar happened back in May when the first of these big money linked games happened. What we didn’t see back in May were many details of the game winners, we were one of just a couple of news portals that sourced that information and even then, we didn’t get a player name.

The big winner for the May £200K jackpot game was from Red Bus Bingo and this player netted themselves £100K (the rest was shared amongst 1TG and 2TG players). The question is, why didn’t Red Bus Bingo publicise the win? There was no PR done on having a £100,000 winner which seems like a missed opportunity.

Lady Luck Smiles On Ayr Granny

Saturday, Mar. 21st 2015 10:07 AM

Lightning struck twice the other day for a 73 year old Ayr woman, but, luckily it was the ‘good kind’ of double strike when she hit a nice prize on the slots, and big on the bingo. Jean Murdoch, a regular at the club, knew that she had won, but didn’t realise how much.

After a mere 40 calls, she was so pleased with winning the local prize of £100 that she strolled off to put some of her winnings into the fruit machines where after placing a one pound bet she netted £300. She must have thought it really was her lucky night, but had no idea how lucky she really had been.

Lady Luck Turns Up In Leeds

Wednesday, Feb. 4th 2015 10:43 AM

If you are a regular bingo player, and you can do a bit of maths, you will know that the money you spend over the years combined with the chances of winning mean that the average player is in deficit over the long term. A night at the bingo is a night out, a bit of fun and socialisation, with the vain hope that one night Lady Luck will smile upon you (even though she always seems to smile upon someone else). Nothing can change this.

Still, despite this, players persist players in adorning their booths with lucky charms, or carrying them in their pockets, around their necks, or the old favourite, the lucky pen. Buying more books does help narrow the odds, despite the random nature of the bingo balls, but there are only so many cards you can mark of at a time, which is why many players frown upon the automatic marking of eBingo.

Festive Fun At Film Bingo

Tuesday, Dec. 9th 2014 7:37 AM

Film Bingo have come up with another unique promotion for their players and what we love about these exclusives from this brand is that they more often than not have a ‘film’ theme to the prizes on offer. The festive promotion has four parts to it and each of the tangible gifts on offer is relevant to the brand and its theme.

The first of the prizes has already been won at Film Bingo and it was a Classic Christmas DVD box set featuring the films The Sound of Music, A Christmas Carol, Miracle on 34th Street and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Players had to win on the D, E or C pattern to be entered in the draw. The winner was named on Monday as ‘stephensmummy08’.

Beacon Bingo Sets House Win Record

Thursday, Dec. 4th 2014 10:00 AM

Beacon Bingo in Cricklewood is the biggest bingo hall in Europe, and regularly pays out big prizes to its players. However, despite the obvious draw of the venue which recently had a makeover, the management are not resting on their laurels and on Sunday they set out to create a Guinness record by paying out £100,000 for a single full house.

Players came from all over the country to take part in the ‘Collosus’, and colossal it certainly was as not only did they achieve the record, but the big prize was one of several four figure sums handed to winning players throughout the night.

Bingo Shout Falls On Deaf Ears

Tuesday, Oct. 14th 2014 10:37 AM

Last week Ronald Price missed out on a £10,000 win for a line in a linked game at Winners Bingo in Wisbech due to a missed call. Obviously Mr Price is quite irate, as this is the second time he has had a dispute over a call at the club.

Plumber Ronald’s card was about to be inspected by the checker but to the dismay of other players the manager didn’t stop the game. The lack of reaction meant that the game continued, and the line was won literally seconds later by a player in another club.

Bingo Mates Hit Mecca Jackpot

Wednesday, Aug. 13th 2014 11:49 AM

Two lucky ladies recently hit the jackpot at Mecca Bingo in Halifax with a £50,000 payout. The pair, Beverley Tinkler, 60 and Debora Sturman, 50 were obviously overjoyed, and have split the winnings between them.

This was a huge surprise for the friends, as Saturdays at the club don’t usually see big payouts. And, probably the best part of it all is that they won on a new promotion, the ‘Firecracker’ showcase event where they got free tickets.
