On Monday 28th August, Kristy Nancholas decided to join her mum and sister at the local Apollo Bingo club in Camborne. It was her first time playing and she was a little nervous but as she walked into the hall, Lady Luck appears to have followed her.
None of the party had been to bingo before, but they had all said they really fancied giving it a go. Originally a night at the club had been planned for a friends birthday the week before, but this got cancelled.
The Waiting Was Worth It For Bingo Newbie
Kristy picks up the story with Cornwall Live
I am so glad I waited now! We got into the club, got our tickets and sat down. We were all a little nervous playing but then I realised I had just one number to go!
The number was called and I just shouted. I was so excited and shocked. Everyone in the club was clapping.
At the time I didn’t realise just how much I had won. I’ll definitely be coming back to bingo on a regular basis.
When asked what she plans on spending her £6,877.25 winnings on, a trip to Disneyland Paris with the kids was the response.
Party Time For Bingo Newbie
On Thursday 7th September, the Apollo Bingo club hosted a party for Kirsty and her family. A bottle of bubbly, a bouquet of flowers and a bumper size cheque were presented to her.
This is not the first time the National Live Game has been won at the venue, there were two wins earlier in the year.
May saw one lucky customer land a prize of £4,962.25 and the month before, another player won £15,870!
The general manager of the club, Mark Durrance, is always keen to celebrate big wins at the club. He said
It’s great when new customers get to experience a big win as it shows that anyone can be in with a chance. Our congratulations and well wishes go to Kristy.
