I wish I had been at the Gala Bingo club in Wolverhampton on Sunday 12th July as one lucky lady scooped a total jackpot of £128,000.00. Lady luck was certainly shining on the local woman who had previously won a total of £3000.00 on a full house game and then managed to bag the high 5 jackpot of £125,000.00!
The woman who wants to remain anonymous certainly won’t be short of friend at her local club as due to the nature of the high 5 game, half of the total winnings were shared between each of the 61 players in attendance with each player taking away £2,049.18! Now you understand why I wanted to be there!
The 76 year old winner commented: “I am absolutely ecstatic with the win. It hasn’t really sunk in yet – when I got home from bingo I just sat staring into space while it hit me! I’m going to spend the money on my kids, my grandchildren and some home improvements. I’m even more overwhelmed that I helped so many other people to win over £2,000 each. Everyone has been telling me all the things they’ll be able to do with the money, like take their kids on a long summer holiday. I’ve been coming to this club every Sunday for years and always dreamed of winning the big one but I won’t stop coming to Gala Bingo – I love it!'”
Ade Stain, Gala Manager of Ashmore Park added: “We’re absolutely thrilled for her. We didn’t realise at first how much she’d won – I went over to check her claim on the full house and suddenly it dawned on me that she had called on number five, which meant that she won the High 5 jackpot. Everyone was so shocked – we had to stop the bingo because everyone was dancing around and hugging each other! The lady’s partner had to go outside to calm down! The atmosphere was electric. The staff were all so excited for the players as everyone won, and they were texting their colleagues who weren’t working that day. Gala Ashmore Park is a friendly club and Sunday was certainly a day to remember.”
