BINGO! Punter scoops £27k at the Gliderdrome


It was a very happy new year for one bingo player last night - after he scooped more than £27,000.

The man - who is unnamed but believed to be in his 70s - has been playing at the town centre bingo hall for many years.

Playing the national game, he won a total of £27,110.59 on Friday night.

“It’s the perfect start to the new year,” said Andrew Malkinson, whose family own the Glider.

“We’re really happy to see another of our customers get a big win.”
