BINGO PLAYER WINS WILLIAM HILL BINGO'S RECORD €1.5 MILLION JACKPOT
Here at William Hill Bingo we were very excited about the news that one of our bingo players scooped the €1.5m Clover Rollover jackpot in 2008. This means that William Hill have crowned their fourth millionaire in a year with their biggest ever payout.
The player, who has made the record books, only identified as 'Simon', is now exactly €1,566,056.97 richer after his spin landed him a line of 5 lucky shamrocks and probably the best early Christmas present he has ever had!
Simon was astounded and delighted with his win. He said, "I'm actually quite speechless, it is a bit of a shock. But this amount of money means so much, it's truly life changing. I'm not sure what I'll do with it all yet, just take a few deep breaths and have a think before I make any decisions."
The Clover Rollover progressive jackpot had been steadily growing since the game went live on our Bingo site in March 2008 and it hit the record €1.5 million earlier in November 2008. The jackpot was reset and grew again to an enormous figure. the game is extremely popular, so why not give it a try - next time it could be you!
Huge congratulations once again to our lucky winner!
FIRST TIME BINGO PLAYER LANDS 93 BILLION TO ONE FULL HOUSE!
When Darryl Howe from Gloucestershire opened his William Hill account, little did he imagine that just 40 minutes later he would be €18,000 richer and a potential World Record holder!
While landing a full house and the jackpot on the 90 ball bingo game is pretty lucky for a first time player, it was the speed of Daryl's win that left the players gasping in amazement. His 15 number full house came in just 23 calls ...... possibly the fastest ever 90 ball bingo game, with the odds of this happening a staggering 93 BILLION to ONE!
William Hill Bingo spokeswoman Jennie Prest said, "None of our staff or customers with vast bingo playing experience have ever seen a game unfold as quickly as this one. We believe it is a record and are exploring the possibility of getting in the Guinness Book of World Records. We can't find examples of a quicker 90 ball game, but are interested in hearing from anyone who knows more - at those odds, it must be very rare!"
Commenting on his win, Darryl said, "I guessed it was just beginners luck when I won, and the money is smashing to have for the New Year, but I was totally gobsmacked when William Hill told me how extraordinary the game was and the odds of that happening. I might get my name in the record books!"
The odds of getting house (15 numbers) in 23 calls in a 90 ball bingo game are: 93,400,706,414-1. To help visualise the chance of this, William Hill have come up with some other 93 billion to one shots...:
