Online bingo operator BingoEmpire.com has revealed that one lucky American player from Alabama scooped a prize of $1,500 last week courtesy of its Mid-Day Mayhem promotion.
The latest jackpot winner plays under the alias ‘stardancer', hails from Phenix City, Alabama, and has been a member of the online bingo site since August of 2005.
"I had played earlier in the morning but had to go out for a while," said ‘stardancer'.
"So, I decided to pre-book the Mid-Day Mayhem hoping to keep my playing pot going with a $30 win. I got home just in time to get on the 2:20pm free game and logged on to chat, not looking at my balance. Sammy, the chat companion, congratulated me on my jackpot. I glanced down and saw the huge balance in my account. I asked what jackpot did I hit and she told me."
The player revealed that she enjoys online bingo due to the fact that she can play anytime she wants even in her pyjamas.
"I like the Cash Climber hour because someone will eventually win a nice pot," said ‘stardancer'.
"I also like the Horse Races because it is like the real thing. You pick a horse you like and sometimes it lags in the back or just teases you to come in second but if it does win it is a nice bonus to your balance."
The winner revealed that her prize would be used to subsidise playing her favourite games while taking part in two cruises that she already had booked in November and January.
"This was my first jackpot and I knew that people do win on BingoEmpire.com because of all the different colour ‘dresses' and actually being in rooms when they are won," said ‘stardancer'.
"I wish I would have been present to see my name in lights. I want the other roomies to know that the jackpots are available to be won and, as the saying goes, if I could do, it anyone can. You don't have to play massive amount of cards or even be near your computer with the pre-book option."
