A Portuguese father living in Stratford ensured a cracking end to 2010 and a great start to 2011 for everyone lucky enough to be in the hall as he won his big prize.

Give Me a High 5!

The hero of the moment is Joao Trindade, who has been playing away at the Gala Bingo in Stratford every week since he came to the country six years ago. His big win finally came on the 22nd of December, as a full house and a High 5 jackpot combo raked him in a staggering £127,000. The High 5 jackpot also has a lovely touch, which sees all the other players in the hall share half the overall High 5 prize of £250,00. This meant that 56 happy Stratford punters walked away with a cool £2,233 each thanks to Joao and his golden touch.

The 30 year old had recently been made redundant and was pleased that the humungous windfall would take a good deal of pressure out of the job search. Gala Bingo staff say the place unsurprisingly erupted when the win was shouted out 'Bingo', and no doubt happy gamers have been saying "obrigado" to Joao every since.

The Gala Bingo High 5 prizes have been a huge crowd puller since it began in 2007. If you want to know where you have the best chance of splitting the big prize then get yourself along to Fenton, as the locals there have scooped over 1.3 million pounds in the game. Over 50 million players have tried their hand at winning the cash during the life of this game and it is one of the UK's biggest land based bingo jackpots.
