Imagine being new to the game of bingo and winning a massive jackpot? That’s what happened to 18-year-old Abbie Doughty when she won a £130,000 bingo jackpot after becoming a bingo player one month earlier.

The full house win occurred at the Barrow’s Apollo Bingo and Social Club in Hindpool, Cumbria.

Doughty called for the full house in a link game but to sweeten the win, she called on the ‘star’ number for an additional £100,000.

Doughty says she and her mum always share their winnings saying, “Mum and I always split the money 50/50 when we go no matter how much we win.

“My grandad is sick with cancer so I’m going to give some to a cancer charity and some to a homelessness charity, it’s something I don’t like to see so I hope I can help.”

Regarding the moment when she won, she said, “Everyone was staring at me and I was nervous, I didn’t realise what I had done.

“I’m so thankful to mum for asking me to come along now because it’s brilliant to have won.

“She’s really excited too though I think she will just spend her half on the house.”
