Soraya Lowell is the winner of the biggest land-based Bingo jackpot prize in the UK and managed to walk away from her local Bingo Hall with just under £1.2 million, back in 2008. Then 38 years old, Lowell had never previously won any money from a game of Bingo, so it’s safe to say that her luck changed on this memorable Easter weekend.
The generous jackpot winner decided to split her winnings with her neighbor, Agnes O’Neill, who was there when she managed to secure the huge prize pot.
In one of the biggest Bingo wins in history Georgios M, originally from Greece walked away victorious when playing at an online Bingo site, with a jackpot prize that amounted to £5.1 million. The 36-year-old kept a low-profile following his win, so little is known in terms of his background, but we reckon he’s probably living it up on an exotic island.
As previously mentioned, when playing Bingo your main priority should be to have fun and to ensure that you keep a handle on your Bingo habits, it can be good practice to establish a Bingo budget. This would prevent you from spending more than you can afford, so that when the fun stops, you stop!
