LIFE CHANGING WIN FOR BINGO FAN!
Great grandmother, Tricia Alcock from Timperley, celebrated her bingo win in style this weekend, after taking home £115,309.88 on the new National Bingo Game Jackpot!
Pat was the first winner of the National Bingo Game new jackpot just two weeks ago and has announced that thanks to her win, husband Harry can now retire after working since the age of 14.
Pat, as she is known to her friends, was treated to a VIP bingo night out at Mecca Bingo Sale with a pink limo ride to the club with friends and family, champagne and cake for all customers, and a cheque presentation from National Bingo Game representative Alastair Stewart.
Pat said: ‘I still can’t quite believe it. I just keep looking at the cheque. It means so much to us both. My husband has worked since he was 14 years old and now we can both enjoy our retirement without worrying about money.’
National Bingo Game Business Development Manager, Alastair Stewart presented Pat with her winning cheque. He said: ‘It was a great atmosphere in the club with everyone out to celebrate Pat’s win. I’m delighted for Pat and husband Harry who can now enjoy their retirement thanks to Pat’s National Bingo Game jackpot win. Question is where will our next big winner be?’
Married for 48 years, Pat is also a mum to three children, grandmother to six grandchildren and a great grandmother three times over. Pat started playing bingo some 47 years ago with her mum and sister.
Pat’s sister sadly passed away 18 months ago but Pat believes her lucky win could have been down to wearing her sister’s gold bracelet decorated with shamrocks.
Club Manager, Emma Foster said: ‘Never in a million years did we think that the first National Bingo Game jackpot winner would be here in Sale. We’re all absolutely delighted for Pat!’
