I can’t believe it happened again! Jennifer Knight, 71, northumberland
Do you remember me? I was in the magazine in May last year after I scooped my second big win on Sapphire Bingo, winning an incredible £1,000.
That was just a year after I had my biggest windfall of £1,250 in April 2016.
And now I’m back again!
I first joined Chat Mag Bingo in September 2013, and I’ve loved every minute of it.
Even my daughter Glynnis, 47, has now signed up.
My favourite games are Sapphire Bingo and the Tiki slot games. And there’s such a welcoming community.
I really enjoy chatting away with all the other members on the site.
I used to go to the bingo halls after a shift at the bakery where I worked, but now I’m retired, I prefer to play from the comfort of my own home.
Me and Glynnis love nights in, snuggled up on the sofa in front of the TV, with our tablets in hand playing bingo.
‘I can guess what you girls are up to!’ my husband Ivor, 67, will laugh.
After that £1,000 win last year, I won two more Full Houses, £1,000 in October and £1,000 just before Christmas.
It was great timing, as I could treat all of my 10 grandchildren to lots of presents. My most recent win was on Play Off Palace in January. I’d won the tickets the previous week when I had a Full House on Sapphire Bingo. So as Ivor made us dinner in the kitchen, I watched the game. ‘Ivor, come quick!’ I yelled, as I realised that I’d won £1,000. I couldn’t believe it. This was my fifth big win! Wonderful! I rang Glynnis straightaway and then I called my son Brian, 48. They were both delighted for me. ‘That’s brilliant, Mum,’ Glynnis said. That weekend, me and Ivor went out to choose some new

blinds for our bungalow, along with a new cooker and a fridge-freezer.
We also splashed out on a trip to Scotland in February.
We had an amazing time, exploring and eating out. And the fun didn’t stop there. Glynnis and I had another holiday, in Wales in April, and I’m hoping to take Ivor away to Blackpool soon to enjoy the sunshine on the beach.
I would like to treat my grandchildren to a holiday, too, so we hope to be going away to Spain sometime in the summer. I can’t wait! The kids are so excited. With the dire winter and spring we’ve had up North, it’ll be great to leave the rain and cloudy days behind.
Last year wasn’t a good time for our family. I lost my brother and my son Andrew, aged just 49.
It’s been difficult, but life has to go on. I’m looking forward to this year, with so many plans.
I have 10 wonderful grandchildren who are keeping me busy, and they only live around the corner from Ivor and me. They’re always making me laugh.
Thank you so much Chat Mag Bingo for all my fabulous wins. I’m thrilled to be sharing them with my family.
Me and two more of my winning cheques!
