Leigh Bingo Player Wins £50k Jackpot

An avid bingo player has won the top £50,000 Jackpot prize of the National Bingo Game at his local BJs Bingo Club in Leigh, near Wigan.

David Biggs, aged 64, has been playing bingo since his mother introduced him to the game almost a decade ago. Ever since, he and his wife Beverly, have been playing twice a week. On Sunday 11th October, he experienced his luckiest break yet.

“The numbers just came out one after another!” said Biggs. “When I called bingo on the sixteenth number, I knew I’d hit the big money. I got up from my seat and did a little dance I was that chuffed.”

Calling bingo in 16 or numbers less is the threshold for winning the top jackpot prize in the National Bingo Game. Many clubs up and down the country offer the nationally syndicated game every day of the week. For just £1 players can get 2 bingo tickets, or 5 bingo tickets for just £2.  The current jackpot prizes are awarded as follows:

  • £100 Jackpot – Bingo in 24 numbers or less
  • £1000 Jackpot – Bingo in 20 numbers or less
  • £50,000 Jackpot – In 16 numbers or less

Players all over the country can purchase National Bingo Game tickets at their local club. In fact, the prior two big jackpot winners had come from bingo clubs other than BJs. One jackpot winner came from a Club 3000 Bingo in Ellesmere Port and a Mecca Bingo in Stockton.

The Real Joy of Bingo

Despite his excitement at his big win and the opportunities it affords him, David remains very grounded about what bingo, at its essence, means to him and his community.

“We love coming to bingo,” he continued. “We’ve made so many friends and it’s a fun night out with terrific value food and drinks: bingo brings people together whether it be family of friends.”

To cap off this truly uplifting event, the BJs Bingo in Leigh have announced a socially distanced party at the end of October to celebrate their big winner. All players taking part will receive a generous gift box containing little treats like wine and chocolate.
