Beacon Bingo, on Marine Terrace, in Margate made history this week when it paid out its largest in-club jackpot prize ever to Da Purser, who owns local restaurant ‘Da’s Thai Diner’ in Broadstairs.
Da, 57, scooped a massive £35,029.00 on the afternoon of 9th September 2015, calling a Full House game on just 44 numbers.
She said: “Beacon Bingo” is my favourite hobby and operating the restaurant evenings means I can take part every afternoon and on my two nights off each week.”
Da continues: “I’m so excited to have won such a large sum of money. I intend to carry out some home improvements, and treat all of my family, both in the UK and Thailand to something special.”
Graeme Corner, general manager of the Margate club said: “When Da won the jackpot we were all so thrilled for her – there is nothing better than seeing one of your most loyal customers winning a big jackpot like that.”
“Bingo plays such an important and positive role in bringing local communities together, and it is these kinds of wins that really showcase that.”
