FORTH TIME LUCKY FOR BARROW BINGO PLAYER
£132,000 WIN - HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR SURE!
2014 will be a year to remember for 18 year old bingo player Abigail Doughty, who scooped £132,000 on the National Bingo Game at Apollo Bingo in Barrow-In-Furness on Sunday 28th December.
Abigail was playing with her Mum at the Apollo Club when her numbers came up.
'I didn't know what to do, I knew that the full house was for £101 but then the money just kept piling up. I got an the £25,000 National Prize for being the first call in the country, meaning I was the first to the full house on the National Game. Then I found out that I had won on the star number, which meant that I won £107,000. It was like a dream!'
“Mum and I always split the money 50/50 when we go no matter how much we win. My grandad is sick with cancer so I'm going to give some money to a cancer charity and some to a homelessness charity, it's something I don't like to see so I hope I can help.'
Abigail works as a school Childcare Assistant and intends to share her good luck and some cash with her siblings, as well as her Mum.
General Manager of the Apollo Bingo and Social Club Barrow, Paul Holland, described the atmosphere in the club as ‘electric’ when Abigail won. The club will be holding a cheque presentation party early in the New Year to celebrate.
