A regular player and bingo enthusiast of the Breckland Club, which is a bingo gaming establishment located in Brandon, England, won the jackpot of over 100,000 UK Pounds, equivlent to $184,000 dollars.
That lucky player is 59 year-old grandmother Val Philipps, who won the National Bingo Game that day while playing at the Breckland Club with her husband Albert.
The National Bingo Game in Britain is considered as one of the country's largest computerized games, second only after Lottery. There are a total of 550 bingo clubs across the United Kingdom which connect to the National Bingo Game via a computer system designed solely for that purpose.
People really have varied interests when it came to gambling like poker, baccarat, high stakes casino and many others but bingo and the Lottery are two of the most popular in the United Kingdom.
When Val Philipps was asked on what she intends to do with her huge winnings, the ecstatic bingo player said that she would of course share the money with her loved ones. The 59 year-old grandmother has been playing her favorite game on a daily basis for almost 35 years now.
