Jackpot Winners! 

The Palace Felixstowe

Joe and Carol Fulcher with Patrick Duffy, of The Palace


A lucky Felixstowe bingo fan received an unexpected boost to her afternoon at The Palace Bingo, Felixstowe on Monday 6th September when she called 'house' on a life changing £50,000 Jackpot on the National Bingo game.

Mother of four, grandmother of fifteen and great grandmother of ten, Carol Fulcher, 75, was at The Palace Bingo, Felixstowe playing the National Bingo Game with her husband of 55 years Joe, as they had done on many previous occasions, when Carol found herself calling 'house' to claim her win: this was no ordinary win, as she had called 'house' on the top Jackpot Prize of £50,000!

Carol said of her win, "It was unbelievable. I was in a state of shock: simply gobsmacked!"

Carol was introduced to bingo by husband Joe, when she went with him to meet her then future mother in-law at bingo. Joe thought that introducing Carol to his mum over a game of bingo was a sure fire winner and her was right. Having retired in 1990 bingo is something Carol and Joe enjoy doing together and it brings back good memories of Joe's mum too.

"We like going to bingo - it's nice to get out of the house, a lovely way to make friends and it's clean and safe. Also we are well looked after at The Palace by the staff there: we know lots of the regulars and the food is good too." Carol commented.

The Palace Bingo club team wanted to mark the big win for everyone and held a special celebration for Carol on Tuesday 28th September, where everyone was invited to toast the lucky winner.

Patrick Duffy, Managing Director of The Palaces said, "We love seeing people win and are delighted that Carol has won such a huge prize on the National Bingo Game - I am sure there will be treats in store for the family. It was a pleasure to see everyone at the club join in Tuesday's celebration: we love to celebrate!"

Alastair Stewart, Head of Commercial Operations at the National Bingo Game said, "We are thrilled for our lucky National Bingo Game £50,000 winner at The Palace Felixstowe and we hope Carol enjoys her winnings: I am sure when the shock passes that Carol and Joe will enjoy treating the family."
