What would you do with £50,000?

That's a question that one Swindon man now has to answer after his numbers were called during a local game of Bingo, winning him the National Bingo jackpot.

The lucky winner, only identified as Will, called for an unlikely full house in under 16 numbers during the national game, winning the 'life-changing' amount of money. 

Will said is planning to use the winnings to purchase a new car, treat his family and take his wife Sue on a well-deserved holiday.  

Will is a regular bingo player who has been visiting Buzz Bingo Swindon at Greenbridge Retail Park for almost seven years. When the bingo company posted about his win on Facebook, there was an outpouring of support from those who were there. 

He and his partner, who have been together for over 35 years and often visit the club on a Sunday night for a game of bingo. Will is thrilled with his win and revealed that even his beloved dog Marley will benefit from the win as he plans to spoil him rotten.

Reacting to the win, Will has encouraged others to give Bingo a go because you never know what would happen. 

He said: “You would never think a win like this would be possible, but it is!”

The club's general manager, Paula Joynson, said that the reaction to the win from everywhere who was there at the time was amazing. 

“We couldn’t be happier for our lucky winner, Will and his fantastic win," she said. 

"It’s so lovely to see such a life-changing sum being won here in Swindon and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer couple. Everyone was cheering from their seats – it was such an exciting moment.”

Peter Brigden, chief retail officer at Buzz Bingo, added: “The atmosphere in club when there’s a win is always incredible, and we’re delighted to see one of our lucky customers win the £50,000 Jackpot at Buzz Bingo Swindon.

"Overall Buzz Bingo players win more than £2m per week in bingo prize money. It’s great to celebrate a win and have the rest of the bingo community celebrate that too!”
