Back in July we reported on a new promotion from the National Bingo Game, the Super Sized Saturdays [read more here].
These big money games got underway on Saturday 15th July and on this day a lucky player at the Castle Bingo in Bridgend bagged themselves a £50,000 jackpot.
Regular Player At Castle Bingo
The lucky winner was Mary Farmer, and she has been a member of the club since if first opened its doors to welcome players.
Mary and her friends are regulars at the Castle Bingo club and they always share their winnings. She will be carrying on that tradition by sharing this win with a couple of close friends.
On Saturday 29th July there was a cheque presentation party and the main bingo books were on sale for just £10. These offered players 10 chances to win between £50 and £500. There was also a free meal and bubbly on offer to all who attended.
Great Atmosphere At Castle Bingo
The general manager of the club, Marcus Mclean said that the party night created the same atmosphere in the club as on the night that Mary won.
He went on to say
On the night of the win, I was working and earlier in the evening a colleague had talked about how great it would be if we have a National winner again.
When Mary called ‘house’, we couldn’t believe it! Of course we have to wait for the numbers to be checked and the win verified but when they appeared on the big screen, the place exploded in cheers and applause.
I’ve known Mary for many years and it’s always special when a regular wins a life changing amount of money. All the staff and other players are over the moon for her.
