Cashino customer George Evans made bingo history a few days ago, when he became Cashino Kettering’s biggest ever Bingo Plus winner.
George, 63, from Kettering, was taking part in the nationwide game at Cashino’s Adult Gaming Centre on Kettering High Street, when he struck it lucky – winning £5,037, after calling house on just 53 numbers and spending just £2 to take part.
Talking about his win, George said: “I’ve been popping into Cashino for the last 15 years and I really do love it. The staff are great, I’m friendly with a good few other regulars, and nothing beats winning a few quid while having a good time.”
“I was so excited when I realised I’d won the house prize, but to then find out I’d one the national jackpot was absolutely amazing!”
“Like everyone else I know, I was delighted when the Bingo Plus game started here, as it’s a great game to take part in, and if you strike lucky the prizes are amazing. You’re playing against thousands of people in lots of venues across the UK, and so being a winner feels like I’ve won the lottery!”
Bingo Plus is a linked game of bingo played Monday to Sunday, which has been running since 2012. The game is always on, which allows the calling club to dictate when the game starts. By linking with other venues, the players always have the chance of winning the highest prizes. It is played in about 60 gaming centres. The maximum prize available on Bingo Plus is £5000.
Chidi Offor, Cashino Kettering’s venue manager, said: “This was such a great win for George and the venue. We love it when our regular customers win big and hope we have a lot more winners in the future.”
