Everyone dreams of winning the jackpot and that dream has finally become a reality for a lucky bingo player from Wrexham, Wales. Pensioner Kath Jones has scooped up the £188,000 jackpot at her local Mecca Bingo club after her numbers came up last month when she was playing the National Bingo Game.
Kath has been playing bingo for over 50 years but never in a million years did she think that one day she’d be lucky enough to hit the jackpot. Over the years, she’s had a couple of small wins but this is the largest one to date.
The windfall has come as a complete shock to her and it still hasn’t sunk in. However, she’s over the moon and can’t wait to start spending her winnings.
She’s going to use her winnings to whisk her family off for a couple of luxury holidays abroad. She was already planning on booking a holiday, but now she has enough cash in the bank to take her whole family with her.
Her cheque was presented to her by Paula Bryan the general manager at Mecca Wrexham. Paula is absolutely delighted for Kath who is one of the regulars at the club. She stated that it’s always a pleasure to see Kath at the club and on behalf of everyone there she sends her best wishes onto Kath and the rest of her family.
Paula also added that a big win like this one always creates a great atmosphere at the club. The whole club is joining in on the celebrations as they’re ecstatic that one of their own has scooped up the jackpot. Everyone is also buzzing because they’ve seen with their own eyes that it’s possible to win the jackpot and they’re getting excited about who’s next in line for a big win.
