The first BIG’N Gold Jackpot was won on Saturday night by a player from Newham in East London. The 42 year old winner scooped £566,525 at the Gala Club in East Ham, and when she did the room went wild, with players clapping and cheering as the winner herself sat motionless at her table, stunned by her success.

The BIG’N game was launched in September 2007 and, for an additional fee of £1, gives players a chance to win one of three jackpots by matching 6, 7 or 8 BIG’N numbers on any ticket that wins the National Bingo Game itself.

These jackpots are called the Silver, Gold and Platinum jackpots respectively, and although the Silver Jackpot has been won several times since the game was launched, this is the first Gold Jackpot win. The first Platinum Jackpot was won in January 2008. The history-making winner had joined the Gala Club in Barking Road in June 2006, and has been in the habit of playing once a week. She initially won the top prize of £100,000 by completing a full house in just 41 numbers, beating all of the other players in some 470 bingo clubs across the country.

That alone would have been a win well worth celebrating, but the winner had also elected to play the BIG’N game which runs alongside the main game, and seven of the numbers on her winning ticket were BIG’N numbers. This won her the Gold Jackpot which stood at £466,375.

Winning any bingo prize is exciting, and winning the National Bingo Game top prize is even more so. But winning a Gold Jackpot on top of the £100,000 house prize and walking home with over half a million pounds just a few weeks before Christmas? Well, that’s something that this particular winner will no doubt remember and celebrate for the rest of her life.
