Croydon Bingo Players Win £43K Jackpot
Two lucky players won a total of £43,000 in one weekend at Mecca Bingo.
The club only experiences about six big wins a year, but on Saturday November 15th, it paid in excess of £18,000 to one winner.
The following evening another player won more than £25,000.
In an average week, the club pays out a total of £50,000 across all of its games.
The club on Tamworth Road last had a win on this scale on July 29th, when one player won around £20,000.
The winners, who were both regular Mecca customers, did not want to be identified.
Richard Matthews, general manager, was working on the Saturday afternoon.
“They were ecstatic. They jumped up and screamed, it was quite an emotional one”, he said.
“The atmosphere was great, it was electric. They were really excited, especially knowing they’d won that much instantly and with Christmas coming up.”
The Cashline game win totalled £18,245.90 on the Saturday, and the Sunday win on the National game totalled £25,246.60.
Congrats to the lucky winners!
