Jackpotjoy have just broken the record for the world's biggest ever online Bingo win, giving £510,049.26 to Gill from Nottingham...
Last night Jackpotjoy awarded an astonishing £510,049.26 to Gill in the ever popular Bejeweled® Bingo Room, and in doing so broke the record for the biggest ever UK online Bingo Jackpot - not bad for a 25p ticket!
"Everyone has a part of their job that they love, and mine is giving away big jackpots," beams Jackpotjoy Managing Director Michael Saunders, "And since this one's a UK record breaker I'm having one cracking day in the office!"
Moments after winning, Gill, who has been playing on the site for just under a year, told Jackpotjoy's community that she was so overwhelmed with the win that she nearly fainted! She went on to thank everyone for the good wishes declaring that: "If I can win anyone can!"
Gill is planning to spend some of her winnings on a new house for her and her children, and treat the rest of her family to something special.
"Phew! What a win that was - the biggest ever online Bingo win, and it was from Jackpotjoy!" Michael Saunders explains. "We're absolutely delighted for Gill! She seems like a lovely lady, and we wish her all the best in the future."
