From Bognor Regis to Glasgow the National Bingo game delivered hard cash into homes across the country in February according to the latest figures from those behind the game. There were 56 jackpot wins (some shared between two or more players) throughout the month split behind the daily afternoon and evening games. As players play at halls up and down the country their immediate aim is to scoop the local jackpot and most are unaware that by doing so they give themselves the opportunity to scoop the national award.
The less numbers used to build a full house the greater a player’s chances are of becoming a national champion.
Wales fared well in the statistics for February with players in Crewe, Cwmbran, Cardiff, Chester and Wrexham collecting around £25,000 each. Interestingly the majority of winners came from outside the UK’s main urban centres.
One can only imagine the delight that would have been experienced in relatively small bingo halls in areas such as Havant, Bury St Edmunds, Hamilton, Norwich Ayls and Gateshead as news came though that the players involved had scooped tens of thousands of pounds.
The results from each participating club are fed back via computer link to The National Bingo Game offices where the system identifies the winner of the National Prize and the winners of the five Zone Prizes.
Participating clubs may play the game at slightly different times within an allocated time window of about thirty minutes.
Once all game results have been fed through to The National Bingo Game offices, and the winners identified, the system sends the results for the game electronically to each club approximately ten minutes later. The results are then announced in club.
