Grandmother Scoops £150,000 At Local Bingo Hall

Caroline Henzell, a mother of four from Newcastle, won £150,000 at Mecca Bingo in Gateshead last Sunday.

The windfall was part of a £1m giveaway in free games that took place throughout the country.

The grandmother of three was quick to point out: “I was totally shaking and was so excited. To say I’m overjoyed is a complete understatement, it’s just brilliant news and an amazing start to the year – let’s just hope my luck continues.

“I’m going on holiday to Benidorm this year so some of the money will go towards that and my husband also wants to upgrade his car too.”

Mark Dadson, manager of Mecca Gateshead, said: “The atmosphere in the club was electric and the best I’ve experienced in 11 years in this industry. We are delighted that through the Mecca Millionaire game we are able to give people real life changing amounts of money.

Caroline’s win was part of the Mecca Millionaire game, launched on September 1st last year, which saw Britain’s first ever million pound giveaway by a high street bingo operator.

A total of £3.5m has changed the lives of 16 Mecca Millionaire players since September, with nearly £6m in jackpot payouts across the entire UK.
