Bingo Success Story: Dartford resident wins £90k with 5p stake!

Lucky player scoops Gala Bingo’s cashpot

A lucky lady from Dartford has had all her dreams come true after winning more than £90k from just a 5p stake on Gala Bingo.

Initially the 50-year-old single mother, whose chat name on the leading online bingo site is ‘theberry’, wasn’t aware she’d hit the ‘Cash Climber’ jackpot while playing in the ‘Sharon Club’ because she was in the kitchen making a coffee!

It only dawned on her that she was the lucky winner of a life-changing £90,595, after seeing the congratulatory messages in the site’s online chat room!

‘Theberry’, who has had a few £50 wins before, said:

I was shocked! At first I thought it might be a practical joke from a friend who had somehow managed to set it up, so I called Gala Bingo and they confirmed it was true.

But this win really couldn’t have come at a better time for ‘theberry’ who had quite an unfortunate time in 2009.

She added:

I’ve had some bad luck last year, damaging my back, having my handbag stolen and crashing my car, so this is just amazing.

Asked how she’s planning to spend her winnings ‘theberry’ said:

I think it has just about sunk in!  I’ve had years of being careful, so I’ve just got the children a few treats – but I still haven’t spent much so far as I’m still working out what we want to do with our win. I have lots of things I want done in the house and am looking forward to a nice holiday as well.

Lesley Hall, online PR manager at Gala Bingo said:

We’re absolutely delighted for ‘theberry’ and her family – especially as she had such a bad run of luck in 2009. Hopefully by becoming one of our 500,000 monthly winners has helped 2010 get off to a really positive start.
