I found the winning treasure chest – and couldn’t believe it!
As we live in the idyllic countryside of northern Scotland, we have very quiet life – but a pretty busy one! Working seven days a week running our own business can be exhausting – so relaxation’s a priority, when it comes to how we spend the evenings.
We’re both totally in love with the job – in fact, my partner Peter, 69, and I both thrive on it.
You’ll usually find us either watching the telly or reading a good novel in the evenings.
Then, back in June 2014, while I was looking online, I discovered Chat Mag Bingo.
The site had lots of different games from which to choose – and not just bingo, but also slot games with exciting bonus games and huge jackpots.
‘I think I’m going to sign up for Chat Mag Bingo,’ I said to Peter one evening.
So, that night, I logged on to the site. And, instantly, I discovered that I really loved it – especially all the amusing chat between the players.
Living in the middle of nowhere, I learnt a lot about what was going on in the world on Chat Mag Bingo.
In the chatrooms, you’d find debates on current affairs and interesting discussions on breaking news – it all goes on in there!
I found it a lot of fun just watching the conversations unfold, and I’d even join in sometimes, too.
Then, on 28 June last year, I was just settling down in the living room one evening after a hard day at work.
Peter was still out delivering some stuff to a customer, but he was due to be back soon.
So, having a little bit of time to myself, I logged on and clicked through to the Tiki Temple slot game. Then I noticed that the jackpot was absolutely huge – over £20,000 in fact!
I clicked spin, and the reels began to turn…
Then, suddenly, they stopped and landed on the bonus symbols.
I saw the Temple Bonus game pop up on my screen – and then I had to reveal a key to unlock one of the treasure chests.
One of them contained the jackpot, which had now gone up to now nearly £21,000!
I chose a chest at random, and it popped open. And… I’d won the jackpot – it was a massive £20,840!
Staring at my computer screen, I had to double, triple and quadruple check!
I kept refreshing the screen

to make sure that I’d got it right.
Then I rang Peter – and he could barely make out my words as I screeched down the phone to him.
‘Peter, I’ve just won £20,840 on Chat Mag Bingo!’ I yelled. ‘Are you joking?!’ he laughed. Peter came rushing home and I was still sitting staring at the screen in disbelief as he came through the door.
‘What are you going to spend the winnings on?’ Peter asked, as excited as I was.
I’d known almost at once what I’d like to do with my surprise win.
It would buy a present for Peter and I, something that we’d always wanted… A vintage motor home! So, after all the excitement, we enjoyed a relaxing evening together at home, looking for the perfect one. And then we found it. An immaculate five-berth, with beautiful cupboards and a huge comfy bed.
We bought some lovely cushions for the sofa and got some beautiful bedding.
Still, working seven days a week, we haven’t had time to take it away yet. But where we live is so beautiful, it’s like being on holiday anyway.
Taking it out as much as we can, we’ve even used it to go to the supermarket!
And we drove it to the beach, just to spend some time in it.
With a bit of cash left over, I decided to buy Peter a second-hand Range Rover.
‘Thank you so much, love!’ he beamed, happily.
I also treated myself to some nice things I’d had my eye on.
My advice to other players is to always make sure you play within your budget.
But Chat Mag Bingo is a wonderful way to have fun!
