Eve­lyn Ford, 63, from Mus­sel­burgh, has won eight jack­pots

Woman (UK) - - This Issue -

Sit­ting in front of the telly, i could see my lap­top out of the cor­ner of my eye. it was a fri­day night in march last year, and af­ter fin­ish­ing a shift at my job as a cloth­ing man­ager, i was back home en­joy­ing my evening.

I was catch­ing up on my favourite shows, and in the back­ground my lap­top was run­ning a game on Woman Bingo. As a mem­ber for over 10 years, I’ve al­ways found the site great fun, a good place to so­cialise and some­where to en­joy some well-de­served me-time.

I’d pre-bought some tick­ets in Sap­phire, a 90-ball bingo game that’s my favourite. I usu­ally play in there or Tiki Bingo. I of­ten pre-buy tick­ets as it means you can be a part of your game, no mat­ter what else you’re up to, as the com­puter ticks off your num­bers au­to­mat­i­cally.

hit­ting the jack­pot

I could see the num­bers be­ing dabbed off the card on the screen be­side me. Plus a Pro­gres­sive Jack­pot was mount­ing too, at over £20,000! As I glanced across, I no­ticed I had matched two lines. I’d win £100 for that! Then, just sec­onds later, the com­puter screen was dis­play­ing ‘You’ve won’, and I could see it was the Pro­gres­sive Jack­pot! But I knew that win­ning screen well… you see, this was not my first but my eighth jack­pot on

Woman Bingo! Over the years, I’ve won lots of jack­pots in Sap­phire and my big­gest win to date had been £1,250.

But this win was my big­gest yet – I had scooped an as­tound­ing £24,747! Gaw­ping at the screen, I called my sis­ter, Jan­ice. ‘You’re not go­ing to be­lieve this…’ I cried.

Jan­ice and I had wanted to go to New York for a while, so I de­cided to book us tick­ets. I also gave my daugh­ter some money for a new shed she’d been af­ter. A good friend of mine lives in Switzer­land, so I vis­ited her, too.

The week af­ter my win, I was mov­ing house, and I splashed out on fancy cur­tain poles and beau­ti­ful pic­tures – in­clud­ing one of Brook­lyn Bridge in New York.

I still can’t be­lieve that I had an eighth jack­pot win with Woman Bingo. My first win was back in 2014 when I won £1,250. In to­tal, I’ve won more than £32,000 – and that isn’t even count­ing all of the times I’ve won £100 on match­ing a line!


And just a cou­ple of months be­fore this lat­est win, I’d scooped £1,000 and bought my­self a new wash­ing ma­chine and tum­ble dryer. In the past, I’ve also jet­ted off to San Fran­cisco with my bingo wins, as well as Las Ve­gas. Once, I even won a hol­i­day to Lan­zarote with Woman Bingo!

I’ve got a few more years of work­ing yet, but I look for­ward to us­ing the rest of my jack­pot on some nice trips and days out when I re­tire.

I just love play­ing on­line – the Woman Bingo site is so friendly and there’s a real sense of com­mu­nity. It’s such a good laugh, and win­ning the jack­pots re­ally is a bril­liant bonus!
