Online bingo sites are great as they serve many purposes. For some, they are a way to make friends and enjoy a bit of banter without having to leave the house. For others, there is the thrill of the chase, the hope that you will win a jackpot or maybe one of the fantastic prizes we see being given away on a weekly basis. Every now and then though, they throw up a truly amazing story, with the latest one being that of one very lucky Iceland Bingo player that has won a life changing £3.4 million.
That lucky player is Ms F, a single mum from Yorkshire. What makes her win even more amazing though, is the fact that it came from just a 15p stake! Ms F logged into Iceland Bingo on Friday 20th February, and decided to try her luck on the ‘Millionaire Genie Jackpot’ slot. This is one of the many progressive jackpot games that is played across the whole of the Dragonfish network, and every time someone takes a spin, a small percentage of what they wager is added to the prize pot. The really important thing though, is that the jackpot can be activated at any time, regardless of the value of the spin.
This mind blowing prize is the second biggest bingo win ever recorded in Britain. As you can imagine, Ms F is still in shock and admits she only placed the bet ‘for a bit of fun’, she says ‘I was just looking to pass the time, so logged on to my Iceland Bingo account and chose the ‘Millionaire Genie Jackpot’ slot at random. I couldn’t believe it when it said I’d won, I had to call my mum to ask her to log on for me so I could make sure I wasn’t imagining the whole thing!’ She says she is going to take her son a Birthday trip to Disney World and then learn to drive, but is determined to return to work.
