I’ve always loved catching up with my girlfriends for a night of gossip and laughs at our local bingo hall. So, when I heard about playing Chat Mag Bingo online, I decided to give it a whirl.
Signing up in July 2012, it was easy as pie.
Then, in February 2014, I won an incredible £31,683 while playing in the Diamond 90 Ball Bingo room.
It was a huge shock. I couldn’t imagine such a big win playing bingo!
Engaged to Stephen, now 62, my partner of three years, I’d spent some of my winnings on our wedding in November that year.
We then had our honeymoon and a joint family holiday to Australia in February 2015.
It was just fabulous, especially as we brought my son Tom, 23, along with us and flew on his 20th birthday.
It was a busy and exciting time for me as I’d also launched my own holistic therapy business part-time.
And I bought a new family car for Steve to drive.
I couldn’t believe it when I won twice more – with a £1,000 Full House in November 2015, and the same again in February 2016 playing 90 Ball Bingo – this time in the Cloud room.
Then, in June this year, I decided to log on to Chat Mag Bingo to say hello to the girls in the chatroom.
I did my usual turning on the telly for background noise and plonked myself on the sofa with my laptop.
It was nearly 9pm, and Stephen and I would soon be getting ready for bed. He had to get up early the next morning for his job as a bus driver.
Stephen often teased me, joking about how much fun I had playing bingo.
It was always a good laugh with the girls.
Scrolling on my laptop, I clicked on the Link Game, starting in 30 minutes, and bought myself six tickets at 10p each.
I then left the laptop and went into the kitchen to make a cup of tea.
But then I got a huge shock.
The screen was flashing. Congratulations,
I couldn’t believe it when I won twice more!
‘Oh my God!’ I gasped. When I’d caught my breath, I screamed the house down in celebration. ‘Stephen!’ I yelped. Rushing into our bedroom, I had to tell Stephen my good news.
‘I’ve just won £1,000 playing bingo!’ I squealed.
‘Again?’ Stephen said, surprise in his eyes. Neither of us could believe it.
What a lovely time for it too.
Stephen and I share the same birthday on 4 August, so we decided to have a joint celebration by throwing a big party at a pub in my home town of Sheffield.
All our nearest and dearest friends and family came along to celebrate.
It was a truly unforgettable day and we celebrated in style!
I would definitely recommend giving Chat Mag Bingo a go!
It’s so convenient being able to play it on your laptop or tablet.
The games are fun, it’s easy to play and it’s also a really great way to get talking to people in the chatrooms.
And I still can’t believe that I am now a four-time Chat Mag Bingo big winner!
1st WIN! 4th WIN!
