Although Mecca Bingo owns dozens of retail bingo halls across the UK, its online bingo site has become increasingly popular in recent years. Last week, one lucky fan of the brand decided to check out its online bingo rooms and ended up signing out after pocketing almost £46,000!
A bingo player from Carlisle has just won a massive £45,959 jackpot after playing at Mecca Bingo’s online bingo site.
Going by the chat name “Schmell”, the lucky lady landed her massive prize after placing a stake of 90p. However, she didn’t realise that she’d won the jackpot until her fellow roomies started typing congratulatory messages in the chatroom and her balance suddenly shot up by over £45k.
What does she plan to do with her winnings?
“Schmell” says that the first person she told about her win was her hubby, and that night, the pair tucked into a tasty takeaway to help bring themselves “back to reality”.
Having had time to process the news, she now plans to buy a new car and pay off some of her mortgage. She says that the win will also help her family to enjoy an extra-special Christmas.
Mecca’s Head of PR and Content, Catherine Warrilow, says that the company is “so happy for our fabulous winner”, and as fans of all things bingo-related, the team at WhichBingo is over the moon for “Schmell” too!
What jackpots does Mecca Bingo offer?
As well as offering players the chance to win progressive bingo room jackpots, Mecca Bingo also has daily and progressive jackpot slots.
Its Main Event bingo room is one of the most common places where players win big, and currently the operator is hosting £10,000 Fortune Games every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 9.12 PM. Join in the fun for 25p per ticket, and you could score £1,000 for one line, £2,000 for two lines, £5,000 for a full house, or a share of the £2,000 1TG pot.
The £10,000 Fortune Games also include a £20,000 Mecca Fortune jackpot. Each week, the winning ball count increases by one until the jackpot is claimed.
