A woman is celebrating after her numbers came up on the National Bingo game – earning her a five-figure jackpot.

Sandra Roberts was enjoying her regular jaunt out to Opera Bingo, in Whitehaven, last Wednesday, and came away with a life-changing jackpot prize of £50,000.

The 67-year-old has been a regular at the club for many years and has had a number of small wins in the past, but nothing had prepared her for the shock of what was about to happen on Wednesday as all her numbers came up while playing the National Bingo Game.

The club caller confirmed it was a good full house claim and that Sandra had not only won the club prize but also a massive £50,000 jackpot too.

A delighted Sandra said: "It hasn’t really sunk in yet – I can’t believe my luck or how much I have won. I am very very happy.

"I love coming to bingo and would encourage anyone to enjoy an evening out at bingo.

"I am going to share my good fortune with family and two local charities which I like to support. No big plans yet, but am sure one or two treats are on the cards.”

Club manager at Opera Bingo Whitehaven, Jon Nellist added they were hoping to throw a party to celebrate the win.

He said: “We are very happy for Sandra, it’s always good to see anyone win, especially when its such a large amount and to one of our regular players.

"We’re looking forward to a bit of a party to celebrate Sandra’s big win!”

Alastair Stewart, business development manager at the National Bingo Game said: “We are thrilled for our lucky National Bingo Game £50,000 jackpot winner at Opera Bingo Whitehaven and hope that Sandra enjoys her winnings.

"We love making winners and over 100 £50,000 jackpots have been paid out on the National Bingo Game in the past 12 months. We are looking forward to creating many more.”
