I had a £1,500 shock win…

Pick Me Up! - - CREEPY -

We were dream­ing of en­joy­ing cock­tails by the pool in the sun­shine

As my part­ner Col­lette, 42, got off the sofa to get ready for bed, I glanced at my watch. It was 10pm and I fan­cied a game of bingo.

So I played Sap­phire Bingo, my favourite game. It was a Link game which of­fers the chance to win an even big­ger Full House as all play­ers from the con­nected rooms play to­gether.

Tonight, the Full House was £1,500. I also liked the chat room very much.

As I watched the game, I was four num­bers away from a Full House, then one of mine came out and then an­other, until…

‘I’ve won!’ I cried out to Col­lette.

I’d signed up to Pick Me Up! Bingo in Au­gust 2013, and I’d al­ways told Col­lette about the win­ners who’d scooped the jack­pot.

And now it was me! Both too ex­cited to sleep, so…

‘Let’s look for hol­i­days!’ I said. ‘Think of the trip we could have with that!’ So we spent a cou­ple of hours brows­ing travel agents’ web­sites and dream­ing of en­joy­ing cock­tails by the pool in the sun­shine.

And, when the money dropped into my bank ac­count a week later, I took Col­lette for a lovely slap-up steak din­ner.

‘Well, this re­ally is quite a treat!’ she told me, laugh­ing.

I put a lit­tle bit of the money aside, too.

Plus, I booked my­self some more driv­ing lessons. I’d failed my test back when I was 17 and wanted an­other go.

Me and Col­lette still haven’t de­cided on a hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion yet. But I’ve used some of the cash to re­new my pass­port. So, when we do de­cide, the world is go­ing to be my oys­ter!

Thank you, Pick Me

Up! Bingo.
