Amanda Kearns from Blackheath is celebrating after hitting the jackpot and winning £10,000 while playing bingo at Mecca Eltham Hill.

Lucky bingo fan Amanda took home the top prize whilst playing the new pirate themed Jackpot Bay cashline game.

A regular at the club for 40 years, she often plays with her friend Yvonne with whom she is splitting her winnings.

Amanda’s other plans for the money include treating her husband and her children and some home maintenance. Commenting on her win, Amanda said: “I’ve never won anything like this before, and I’m absolutely delighted to have been the lucky one on this occasion.

“I’ve been playing at the Eltham Hill club for years and this is my biggest win to date and was pleased to celebrate with everyone there. I’d like to say a big thank you to Mecca Bingo for this fabulous prize.”

Alex Cook, club manager at Mecca Eltham Hill, said: “We are always thrilled to celebrate with our winners, especially when lady luck shines on one of our regular players. We look forward to seeing Amanda back in club.”
