I WON THEN £2,451 JACKPOT IN MY PYJAMAS!
A relaxing night turned into one full of excitement for Leanne Wall, 33, from Derby
It was a lovely warm evening this July. After a busy day, I was looking forward to unwinding on the sofa. And one thing I do enjoy on an evening like this is a spot of Pick Me Up! Bingo. I’d been a member since November 2014 and loved the site – the games are so colourful and easy to play.
It was a perfect way to relax and have a bit of me time at the end of a busy day. Now I was settled, lounging in my PJS.
I bought 12 tickets for 10p for a Bingo Lounge game.
They were on offer - buy two and get one free. Result! I’d be playing with 18 tickets.
I enjoyed the Bingo Lounge room, it’s 75-ball bingo where all the games are played in patterns rather than lines.
I love the site – the games are so colourful and easy to play
are all funny shapes like bow ties or hearts.
It is easy to keep an eye on your best cards, as they’re always in front of you. And it’s so easy to play – the numbers are dabbed off your card automatically. With the people in the chatroom, playing the same game alongside you, it was like being together in a real bingo hall with other players.
People in the chat rooms were sociable and fun. They’d ask how you were, if you’d had a good day…
Chatting away, I didn’t even take note of the progressive jackpot amount for that game.
Sometimes I played against more people than other times so I didn’t think about who’d win.
I noticed that I had just five numbers left to get and now four, suddenly three, now two… Just one…73! Then – shock – 73 was called and my card was full!
A message came on screen saying Congratulations!
I’d won the £41 Full House and an impressive progressive jackpot amount of £2,451!
I watched as congratulatory messages from people in the chat room poured in.
I let out an excited squeak, had I really won..?
I logged out and logged back in again to see the £2,451 was in my bingo account.
Smiling, I texted my mum and a friend at work.
You’re never going to believe it… I started.
Well, I could hardly even believe it myself!
The cash was in my bank account three days later.
And that’s when it truly sunk in!
So, what was I going to spend it on?
This summer, I took the kids to a theme park for the weekend and we stayed in a lovely hotel.
I treated them and the rest of the family to meals out.
And I decided to put some money aside for my children for when they’re older. A nice little surprise.
As for me, I treated myself to some new bits for my car.
It’s been such a lot of fun.
It’s still fun to play the odd game now and then. I love chatting to the roomies, so thank you Pick Me Up! Bingo for all the fun and laughs.
All the fun of the fair!
