A LUCKY man has won a £150k jackpot on his first game at Buzz Bingo Warrington.

James Foster decided to visit the bingo on Prince Henry Square, Cockhedge, 'on a whim' after googling ‘fun things to do in the area’ on a rare night away from his children.

He had only become a member on that day.

At first, he thought he had won £50,000 which he was delighted with.

But he couldn’t believe his luck when staff told him it was actually a life-changing £150,000.

James is planning to use the winnings to purchase a new home and set up a business.

Kevin Carrigan general manager at Buzz Bingo Warrington, said: “We couldn’t be happier for our lucky new member and their fantastic win.

“When we told him the amount he’d be taking home, his face just said it all. That Google search certainly paid off! Everyone was cheering from their seats – it was such an exciting moment.”

Chief retail officer at Buzz Bingo Peter Brigden said: “We’re delighted to see a new member win the £150,000 National Game jackpot at Buzz Bingo Warrington.

“The atmosphere in the club when there’s a win is always incredible, but when it’s a jackpot like this one, it’s absolutely electric! And the fact they’d only joined that day – wow!

“What a surprise that must’ve been. It just proves that it can happen to anyone at any time!

“It’s great to celebrate such a fantastic win and have the rest of the bingo community celebrate that too!”
