LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – June 29, 2010) – Virgin Bingo caused too much excitement for one pregnant woman, who last week went into labour whilst playing in the Marrakesh room!
Ann Marie Stubbs (annie46abbie) from Scarborough was playing on Virgin Bingo when she told other players in the chat feature that her waters had broken and had to be dashed to hospital! Ann Marie gave birth to Harley Jay Stubbs who weighed in at 7lbs 1oz.
Virgin Games caught up with Ann Marie to offer its congratulations, she said: “I could not believe my waters broke while I was playing bingo, to say I was shocked was an understatement! Everyone has been fantastic in the Marrakesh room. It must be a first Virgin Bingo baby!”
The Marrakesh room hosts many of the special promotional games at Virgin Bingo including free bingo exclusive to Virgin players.
