Winners Bingo Says Shout Louder

Winners Bingo Says Shout Louder

The Mirror reported the story of a bingo player that missed out on a £10,000 prize during a national game because he didn’t shout loud enough for the caller to hear him and stop the game.

Last week, Ronald Price bingo’d on the line and the club manager carried on without acknowledging his claim. Even an employee at the Winners Bingo came over to verify the claim but the game continued on.

Within seconds, a player at another club won the line prize.

The manager claims he did not hear Ronald’s shot and rules are rules.

Interestingly enough this has happened to Ronald about a year ago when he lost out on £1,000 for the same reason.

Ronald’s wife said: "I was jumping up and down excited. People in the club went mad shouting Wisbech has got it!

"The game should then be stopped to check the numbers, but it wasn’t and the caller continued and somebody else won - we missed out on our winnings through no fault of our own.

"I shouted out loud. The checker heard me because he came over to me with his microphone.

“It is a hell of a lot of money. It would make a massive difference to our lives.”

A Winners Bingo spokesperson said: “As all bingo customers know, the rules of bingo clearly state that any player must emphatically stop the caller.

"In this instance, the Wisbech club manager, who has been in the business for more than 40 years, announced immediately before the game that players should ensure that any claims are loud and clear."
