One lucky bingo player won a £50,000 while playing at a Halifax Mecca Bingo hall. Not only is she lucky but her sidekick for the evening is also in luck since she has decided to split the prize with her!

Beverley Tinkler, 60, and Debora Sturman, 50, have been friends for 35 years and received free tickets to play the new ‘Firecracker’ showcase event. Number 70 was called out and completed Tinkler’s Full House but neither of the woman realized just how much she had won.

Tinkler said, “We both screamed and Deborah was getting really excited.

“The atmosphere was brilliant, people came to say congratulations and everyone was clapping and cheering. Saturday isn’t usually a big night for money, it seemed like a fluke and my family didn’t believe me when I told them.”

The friends usually attend bingo with a group once a week and split their winnings no matter how much.

Sturman, said: “I was shaking for about 20 minutes afterwards, I was so excited. I plan to go on holiday, get a new phone and treat my nephews, but the money will also allow me to work part-time and complete my college course in Employment Law.”
