Lucky Suvaris Thompson kicked off 2018 on the right foot after winning an amazing £20,000 at the largest bingo club in Europe, Beacon Bingo Cricklewood.
Suvaris, a Beacon Bingo Cricklewood regular, scooped the big cash prize after entering a free draw; entries for which were first invited back in early January. Having won he was given the choice of £20,000 cash or a brand-new BMW 3 Series.
Suvaris commented: “I’m over the moon! I swear my heart stopped when I realised I’d won. I had this strange feeling I was going to win. I’ve been coming to the club since the day it opened and always suspected that one day I might have a big win, and today was the day!”
“When given the option of the money or the car, I chose the money”, he continued. “I’m going to use it on a variety of things, and just have a bit of fun. It isn’t every day you win something so huge.”
Steve Lightfoot, general manager of the 2,200-capacity venue, said: “We are delighted for Suvaris. He is a lovely man, well known and liked by everyone in the club and so deserving of this prize. It’s also great to see a regular customer pick up such a big prize.”
