Bingo player nets 28k national win

A BOSTON bingo player scooped £28,000 at the weekend.

The lucky lady – who wishes to remain anonymous – won the cash total at the Gliderdrome on Friday night.

She won £25,000 on the national game, linked through bingo halls across the country.

She also topped up her total with £2,900 in the regional game and her winnings from the in-house game.

Speaking to The Standard, she said: “I was in shock when my numbers came up, it still hasn’t sunken in really so I haven’t decided what to do with the money yet.”

Andrew Malkinson, whose family runs the Gliderdrome, said: “It’s a nice little win.

“We always enjoy it when one of our regulars, who has been coming for years, can win a nice sum of money.”
