The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, has been a member of Buzz Bingo since 2010 and is absolutely delighted to have won such a life-changing amount of money after well over a decade of playing at the High Street club, formerly Gala Bingo.
The jubilant bingo-goer is the 60th customer to claim the £50,000 Big Buzz Special jackpot since lockdown ended in May last year.
Just in the Big Buzz Special jackpot game alone, £3 million has been dished out in less than nine months.
The generous winner now plans plans to use some of the winnings to whisk her mum away for a luxury holiday.
Linsey Crooknorth, general manager at Buzz Bingo in Arbroath, said there was an enthusiastic response to the player landing the big prize.
He: “We couldn’t be happier for our lucky winner and their fantastic win.
"Everyone was cheering from their seats – it was such an exciting moment.”
Peter Brigden, the company’s chief retail officer, added: “The atmosphere in club when there’s a win is always incredible, and we’re delighted to see the 60th customer hit the £50,000 jackpot during the Big Buzz Special at Buzz Bingo Arbroath.
"Overall Buzz Bingo players win more than £2m per week in bingo prize money and have won £3m in Big Buzz Special jackpots. It’s great to celebrate a win and have the rest of the bingo community celebrate that too!”
All Buzz Bingo clubs have implemented extensive health and safety measures including a maximum capacity, Perspex screens and floor markers to enable social distancing.
