A lucky bingo player from Doncaster is celebrating after they scooped more than £15, 000.

The winner, who wanted to remain anonymous, won £15,093.98 while playing the National Live Game at the Mecca Bingo Club in East Laith Gate, Doncaster.

The win is one of only a few the lucky player has had over the years, which they plan to share with their friend and bingo partner.

They said: “I’m still in a state of shock at my good fortune. I’ve been going to the Doncaster club for almost 15 years now and I’ve won a couple of prizes in the past, but this is by far the largest amount to date.

“I’m so thrilled about my win and I just can’t believe my luck. It’s still not sunk in and I need someone to pinch me.”

Debbie Coy, Mecca’s operations manager in Doncaster, said: “We’re always pleased when we have a big win like this in our club.

“Understandably, it creates a great atmosphere in the club and the rest of our customers are always chuffed for the winner - there’s a real sense of camaraderie and excitement that the winner of the National Live Game is one of ‘ours’.”
