Amanda Kearns has been a regular player at the Mecca Bingo hall in Eltham Hill in Blackheath for over 40 years. She can often be found at the venue with her friend Yvonne and the pair have an agreement where all winnings are shared.
Imagine both of their delight when, whilst playing the themed Jackpot Bay cashline game, she managed to call bingo in just the right amount of calls to land herself quite a bit of treasure. £10,000 to be exact. Not only will Amanda be enjoying the spoils of the bounty, her friend Yvonne will be too.
Spending Spree Planned For Mecca Bingo Player
As well as sharing the winnings with her friend, Amanda plans on treating her husband and her children. She also has some ideas for a few home improvements. When speaking about her win, she is reported as having said
Although we’ve been coming to the club for many years, I’ve never won a prize as big as this before. I am over the moon to have been so lucky and it is my biggest win to date. Everyone celebrated with me and I’d like to say a huge thank you to Mecca Bingo for this wonderful prize.
The manager of the club, Alex Cook, picked up by saying
We are always really excited when one of our players is a big winner and we love to celebrate with them. It is brilliant that Lady Luck shone on one of our regular players and we look forward to seeing Amanda soon.
About Mecca Bingo, Eltham Hill
This venue originally opened as a cinema in 1938 and offered seating for 1,700 viewers. It was in 1967 that it closed as a cinema and was then coverted to the Top Rank Bingo club. We’re not quite sure when Mecca Bingo took over operating the club.
