I'm going to put the money towards Christmas for my kids, they already have wish lists!
London (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
The £1000 Crown Bingo Piggy Bank has been emptied by lucky member Theresa Cresswell just seven days after it was launched.
Theresa, who joined Crown Bingo in August, bagged the jackpot after hitting a full house in just 41 numbers. The win came in the 5pm game and saw her scoop the £72 two lines prize and the £223 Full House, meaning she scooped £1,293 in less than five minutes. "I was so shocked to win the £1000 Jackpot", says Theresa. "I'm going to put the money towards Christmas for my kids, they already have wish lists!".
Theresa, from Hampshire, has 5 kids aged between 11 years and 6 months old. She has been playing online bingo for 3 months, and only plays at Crown Bingo! "The chat is the best thing on the site, I've made some good friends", says Theresa. "I love the excitement of getting close and winning on bingo!"
CM Sapphire, the CM during Theresa's lucky win says: "I'm so glad to have been in the room when the Piggy Bank was won for the first time! We're all really pleased for her and everyone in the chat room was quick to congratulate her - it goes to show what a great community we've got!"
The Piggy Bank, launched just one week ago to replace the smaller £750 Progressive Jackpot, can be won in any game and by any member who calls a Full House in fewer than 43 calls.
The Cash Cow, Crown Bingo's second jackpot fund, now stands at £86,130 and can be won by anyone calling a Full House in under 34 calls. Chat Master Manager Andy Osman says: "We're getting closer and closer to giving away the enormous Cash Cow Jackpot and I can't wait! Theresa's win goes to show that you can win all of our jackpots and it won't be long until someone takes home the Cash Cow too!"
The win comes just days after a facelift of the Crown Bingo website. Managing Director Dan Smyth says: "We've modernised the site and given it a make-over but most importantly we've added a fantastic new community section where our members can see all of the latest community events, sign up for forthcoming events and see the results of previous ones. Each member even has their own mini-profile. Our continuing goal is make the site easy to use, fun and useful for all of our members, which we've achieved spectacularly."
