LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – July 7, 2010) – Virgin Bingo had an extremely lucky winner on Friday night. Brand new customer, “Scattyhat”, won £31,470 on the Virtue Fusion slot, Mayan Mania. Scattyhat, from Shoreham by Sea in Sussex, is a new player who came across Virgin Bingo only three weeks ago simply by typing “bingo” into an online search engine.
Scattyhat, who recently returned from a holiday in Greece, told Virgin Bingo: “The massive win still hasn’t sunk in! I plan to use my prize money to pay off bills, and with what’s left over, who knows? Maybe another holiday in Greece?!”
Alan Thomas, Head of CRM at Virgin Games, commented: “I’m thrilled to bits that Virgin Bingo has produced another big winner. This sort of money, particularly in these current harder times, can make a real difference to a person’s life, and we hope Scattyhat enjoys every penny!”
Scattyhat won the bronze pot from a £2 spin, when 5 x Mayan Volcanoes appeared on a win line.
