‘I won £8,586 from free tickets!’
Michelle Sutton, 37, from Stockport’s cash prize led to an even bigger win
Playing bingo has always been enjoyable for me. I used to pop to our local hall, but about 10 years ago I switched to playing online.
I usually log on a couple of times a week – it’s my way to chill out. Playing Woman’s Own Bingo, there are always plenty of other members online, talking in the chat rooms while they play, so it’s a fun evening.
In May this year, I logged into my bingo account on my phone and played the daily free game. After you’ve made your first deposit you can join the free daily games. You pick one of three games, and it’s free the next week!
That week I had chosen Tiki’s Catch of the Day game. It’s a fun fishing game and I had already caught six fish, and that meant I had won £5. I bought myself 10 tickets for my favourite 75-ball bingo game. I only spent £1 on tickets from the money I had won. Playing on my mobile, a Progressive Jackpot was racking up in the corner of the screen. Then I realised I had two numbers to go.
All my numbers were called and I had won the Progressive Jackpot, which was £8,596! I couldn’t wait to tell my family and friends. The day passed in a blur, but I knew it was real, as my account balance had shot up right in front of me.
Once I had the money in my bank, I knew just what I wanted to do with it. I’d dreamed of treating the family and taking them on holiday, so I booked a five-star, all-inclusive holiday for two weeks to Turkey! And what’s great is the holiday is all booked and paid for, so I know we can go away and relax.
I still had plenty of money left over, so I put it towards the house. I loved being able to buy a new 50in TV, have my doors redone upstairs and get new furniture.
