Grandmother Becomes First Online Bingo Millionaire

An amazing story comes from Bristol, England this week as a 62 year old grandmother and pension collector made history by becoming the first online bingo millionaire. After only two months of playing online bingo, Pauline Clark produced a full-house playing KerChingo at the online site, Gala Bingo. The full house awarded GBP 50 and a seat into the KerChingo Final worth GBP 1-million.

After winning the largest bingo prize in history, Clark described her initial reaction to the win as pure shock. The grandmother has already made plans to spend a portion of her new-found fortune by paying off her children's mortgages and erecting a greenhouse.

Gala Bingo kicked off the celebration by whisking Pauline and her family away in a luxurious, chauffeured limo for a taste of aristocratic life-style, including champagne breakfast at the extravagant Hotel Du Vin.

Clark told reporters, "I'm absolutely shocked! My heart is still racing. I've played bingo for years; in fact I won GBP 6,000 in the National Game 12 years ago. However, I've only been playing online for two months.

"Two weeks ago I played online bingo, putting GBP 5 on my account, and with my last 60 pence I played the KerChingo Qualifying Game. To my surprise I won the full house which meant I won GBP 50 and a KerChingo Final Game ticket.

"I had always thought that I would win big and I do remember that a clairvoyant once said to me I'd never be stuck for cash, but when I needed to retire from work two years ago due to stress, I wondered what she could have meant!"
