Sam Carter, 37, from Newquay, couldn’t keep her big win secret for very long…
Win with us!
When I joined Woman Bingo a few years ago, I’d already played bingo before at school fairs or pub quizzes, but I had never been a member of a local club. I thought I’d sign up and play as a fun and sociable thing to do. I wanted to enjoy some me time and it wasn't long before I remembered how much fun bingo was.
That was about three years ago now, and I have got to know the site really well. My two favourite games are Game Show Bingo and Session Bingo and I like the chat rooms that run alongside the games.
The banter in the chat rooms is great, with people talking honestly, so it has a real community feel. We talk about all sorts in there from diet advice to the weather, and have a laugh too.
There are also chat hosts in the rooms and they are always coming up with extra games to win a free spin, or a free game here and there. They are guaranteed to make you smile, always upbeat and friendly, I think the chat room is what makes Woman Bingo the best site there is.
What’s even better though is when you have a win on the site! I had my first big win this year in April. I was playing in Session Bingo – which is a fairly new game to the site. I had won a line in the morning, which meant I had six tickets for the Playoff Palace, allowing me another chance of winning the jackpot in a special game the following Sunday night.
At the end of a busy weekend with the kids, I logged into my account and claimed my Playoff Palace tickets. ‘You never know,’ I thought to myself. Exhausted, I went off to bed and, to be honest, the bingo tickets were the last thing on my mind.
On Monday, I woke up ready for another week. I did my morning routine, checking my phone for the week’s weather, reading the news and finally checking my emails. I was still a bit bleary-eyed as I read them and saw one I thought was announcing new games on the Woman Bingo site. But to my shock, it wasn’t about that…
I logged into the Woman Bingo app on my phone to check my balance. This couldn’t be right, could it? My account balance read £1,009.64!
Suddenly, I sat up in bed and looked a bit more closely at my phone! It definitely said £1,009.64!
A huge cash prize
Still a bit too nervous to actually believe it, I raced down the stairs and logged on to my laptop to check the balance there and see if it was the same. Looking at my account history, I could soon see I had won £1,000 on the Playoff Palace final on Sunday night! I hadn’t even been at my computer and I had hit the big one. I couldn’t believe it. I was so excited.
I desperately wanted to keep it secret from my husband so that I could buy him something special but I couldn’t keep my mouth closed about my big win, so I blurted it out to him just 50 minutes later!
He was just as shocked as me and we were so happy. The money would be used to treat my family and the kids to some nice things and meals out together. But I still treated my husband to a lovely present, though. Playing online is so much fun and I love it. The best thing about it is you can play whenever it suits you and you can use the Woman Bingo app on your phone if you’re on the go – or even in bed! And you can also log in on your laptop for an even bigger choice of games and to use the chat rooms. Whenever I log in, I know I’m going to have a laugh with the other members, be made to feel welcome – and maybe even win a jackpot!
