In a SPIN with my £1,206 win
I got a new washing machine with my winnings!
I love the great games and the lively chat
While my husband Marc, 40, watched the telly in our living room, I fired up the computer. There was nothing like relaxing after a long day. One of the things I like to do is play some of my favourite bingo games.
I first signed up to Chat Mag Bingo in 2010 after seeing an advert. Looks like fun,
The games were so easy to understand, and chatrooms were always very lively.
That’s what I loved most about playing bingo online was the social aspect, as I could
chat to other players while the games were going on. I was surprised by just how friendly everybody on the site was, and made several friends after just a few weeks of playing.
Some of my friends and neighbours also signed up on my recommendation, and we had a great laugh, chatting while we played together. I really enjoyed games like Bingo Lounge, and the slot game Double Bubble, but my all-time favourite game was Blox Bingo, which is quite new. The room has three columns laying everything out clearly. There were a selection of mini-games on the left. The game info in the middle, and the chatroom window on the right.
I liked Blox Bingo as you always got a bonus round when you bought six tickets.
In the bonus round, you played a fast paced and fun round of matching blocks. It’s brilliant as you have the chance to win tickets for the next bingo game depending on your score.
I’d had a few wins here and there over the years, then 20 June last year… there was quite a surprise in store.
That morning, I bought six tickets for Blox Bingo.
While the game was still going on, I got up and went to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee.
When I got back to my seat I was stunned to see over £1,000 sitting in my game account!
‘How..?’ I mumbled, completely baffled.
When I checked my game history, I learnt that I’d won just over £1,200 on a Full House while I was in the kitchen!
It took a few seconds for the realisation to kick in, as I was still in disbelief.
But suddenly I began excitedly jumping up and down with joy!
Giggling, I raced upstairs to tell Marc my good news.
‘What’s all this shouting about?’ asked Marc, as he emerged from our bedroom where he’d been resting.
Two days earlier our washing machine had broken, and Marc had hurt himself removing it from the kitchen.
He’d broken two ligaments and torn two muscles in his right shoulder, which was in a sling, and he was still in a lot of pain.
‘I won the jackpot!’ I beamed. ‘£1,000!’
I told him I would use my winnings to buy us a new washing machine.
‘Brilliant,’ he smiled, rolling his eyes.
With his arm in such agony, Marc must’ve had enough of hearing me harp on about the washing machine!
But I knew just how to cheer him up.
So, as well as the new washing machine, I decided to
treat Marc to a season ticket for his beloved Bristol City Football Club.
After all, football is the way to a man’s heart!
As soon as I told Marc, the biggest grin I’ve ever seen spread across his face!
But I didn’t stop there, as I couldn’t not treat our three children too.
So I took them out shopping and let them pick some things for themselves.
As can be expected, we came back with a few video games, DVDs and books.
But I was more than happy with my new washing machine.
Winning my £1,206 Full House on Chat Mag Bingo has been amazing.
I’m still playing bingo, because I love the great games and of course the lively chat is a winner.
