Online bingo player Barbara F. has been crowned as the first Queen of Bingo in a tournament conducted by Bingohall.com which ended on July 20.
Barbara F, who is a loyal player of Bingo Hall for three years, bested other players in the tournament and took home the title of Queen of Bingo.
As Queen of Bingo, she received a grand cash prize of ten thousand dollars. Consolation awards totaling to over two hundred fifty thousand dollars were also given out to other players.
Bingo Hall, through President Jon Daley, said that they were ecstatic to crown Barbara as their first queen. "We were so excited to see a player win the tournament that has been with us for so many years," Daley said.
Old as well as new players participated in the tournament and the number of entrants was more than what Bingo Hall expected.
For as low as ten cents, a player could purchase bingo cards and earn an entry and partake in the tournament.
Doley said, "Online poker has been running events like this for years and it was time online bingo followed suit.
He said that the mega successful event was just the first of many bingo tournaments they are planning to hold in the coming weeks.
