We had a birthday party to remember! Bernadine Howe, 61, Scarborough
I couldn’t have imagined such a big win
Anight of gossip and laughs at our local bingo hall is the best way to catch up with my girlfriends. So, when I heard about playing Chat Mag Bingo online, I decided to give it a go.
Signing up in July 2012, I have had lots of fun.
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 have imagined 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 of that year.
We then decided to have 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 parttime.
And I bought a new family car for Steve.
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, I decided to log on to Chat Mag Bingo to say hi to the girls in the chatroom.
I decided to get comfortable on the sofa and reached over to grab my laptop, turning it on. 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 through the site on my laptop, I clicked on the 90-ball bingo game Bingo Royale, and bought six tickets at 10p each.
I then left the laptop and went into the kitchen to make a cup of tea. The game carried on playing while
I was out of the room.
