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!
