A Dagenham bingo player has hit the ultimate jackpot after winning a huge £1.6 million from a stake of just 40p whilst playing on Meccabingo.com.
The player, who has asked to remain anonymous, scooped the win from only one spin during a spontaneous game of The Mighty Tusk, a game chosen by the player entirely at random.
Being a member online for some years, the lucky winner has experienced many wins over the course of their membership, but none quite as large as this life-changing sum.
Mecca Bingo’s lucky member, said: “I’m still in shock, I haven’t slept a wink since winning! You hear about others winning this kind of money in the news but you never think it could happen to you.
“I’m a single parent to five children and this incredible amount of money is certainly going improve my life, but more importantly theirs!”
With a large family, the lucky winner hopes to buy a new home as well as planning several holidays the family has always dreamed of going on.
Caroline Webb, spokesperson for Mecca Bingo, said: “We are always thrilled to celebrate with our winners, especially when the prize is as large as this one.
“We hope the winner has a successful house hunt and enjoys the fruits of their new-found millionaire lifestyle with their family!”
