Praesepe’s largest bingo venue, Beacon Bingo on Cricklewood Broadway in North London has set a Guinness World Record when it became the first club in history to giveaway £100,000 in a single game of bingo.
The ‘Colossus’ event which took place on Sunday evening, 30 November, made one lucky winner a record holder in a night that saw over £160,000 given away.
Steve Lightfoot, General Manager of the 2,500 capacity venue, said:
“This is the first time one bingo club on its own has given away a cash prize of this scale in one night and we are claiming it as a world record. Alongside our £100,000 jackpot, customers also had the chance to win big with several cash prizes of £10,000 and £1,000 also up for grabs.
The event was the second big giveaway night at Cricklewood since its £500,000 refurbishment in August.
“The investment has allowed us to offer our customers an experience unlike anywhere else and that is thanks to the addition of top-of-the-range games, new décor and high quality facilities,” added Steve.
“Bingo plays such an important and positive role in bringing local communities together, and I am in no doubt that this event has achieved that.
Praesepe operates nine Beacon Clubs across the country.
