Enjoy Super-Sized Payouts with Bingo Games!
The advent of online bingo has sparked a worldwide resurgence in the popularity of the game. With swelling numbers of players comes much bigger bingo jackpots. The list of big bingo winners is continually being updated, but some notable winners stand out. One such bingo winner is a Welsh mother of 4, who hails from Hamilton, Scotland. Her name is Soraya Lowell and she won a monster-sized £1.2 million jackpot in the National Bingo Game during 2008. Hers is listed as one of the biggest-ever jackpots recorded in bingo gaming history. In the same year, Christine Bradfield won a mega £1.1 million at The Castle Club. Sadly for Soraya Lowell, she was declared bankrupt in 2012, despite her massive winnings.
The World’s Biggest Ever Online Bingo Jackpot
While it may appear that Soraya and Christine scooped up insanely huge bingo jackpots, these pale in comparison to what John Orchid won. On 13 December 2012 it was reported that a Jobcentre employee had managed to win an astounding £5.9 million jackpot playing at an online bingo room. But John wasn’t playing bingo when he won this monster prize – he was playing The Dark Knight slots – based on the Batman film. And all it took for him to hit paydirt was £0.30. The grandfather of three got himself new wheels and now rolls in a Jaguar XF. Needless to say, he was absolutely gobsmacked at hitting a massive and unprecedented prize. Orchid hails from Long Sutton in Lincolnshire. Prior bingo records include a massive jackpot won in 2009 by Georgios M – a Greek businessman. He scooped up ?6.3 million – the equivalent of £5.1 million.
Online Bingo is the Go-To Jackpot Destination
Bingo fans looking to rack up impressive winnings will do well to register at an online bingo room, as opposed to a traditional bingo hall. Lower operating costs and a virtual presence makes it easy for massive amounts of players to participate in games – thus increasing the size of the jackpots to multi-million pound paydays. Progressive jackpot bingo games have the biggest payouts, owing to the huge base of players and the fact that a portion of each player’s wager is added to the progressive jackpot prize pool.
