“I’d pre-bought tickets for the bingo game beforehand then my partner and I decided to go out for a meal that evening.

“I wasn’t actually online when the game was being played so had absolutely no idea I’d won, let alone won the jackpot.”

Tina is still undecided on how to spend the winnings but has used some of the money to buy a car.

She broke the news to family and friends on stage at Buzz Bingo Poole, where she often plays.
