LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - July 6, 2012) - Sue, from Hook in Hampshire, couldn't believe it when her daughter told her she'd won £100k on a Costa Bingo birthday promotion at the weekend. In fact she didn't believe her! It took a chat host from Costa to convince her that she'd actually won the money in a competition that was held on Saturday night.
Sue, who has three children and six grandchildren, was out celebrating her grandson's birthday on Saturday when her daughter called to tell her she'd won the competition. When the news finally sank in Sue didn't sleep much and she is currently enjoying planning what to do with the money!
A new car is definitely top of the list, but her children have urged her to be sensible and hold on to the money rather than blowing it all. Sue's ten year old grandson certainly appreciates her win, he gave her a big cuddle and said "I want to cuddle a rich person" - he wanted her autograph too!
Having played at CostaBingo.com for about a year, Sue also won £750 last month so she really is on a lucky roll at the moment. And it's a family affair, for not only does Sue play, but so do her two daughters who have also enjoyed winning at Costa.
The £100,000 jackpot game was run to celebrate Costa Bingo's third birthday. It is only the second time Costa has run such a huge jackpot game - and the unique thing about this game is that it guarantees one person will take home the entire jackpot rather than just a share of it.
"The news still hasn't really sunk in. The first thing I must do is buy a new car as my one is on its last legs so the money couldn't have come at a better time, but apart from that I am just going to enjoy the moment and have a little party with my family to celebrate" said Sue, still finding it hard to believe she has actually won!
CostaBingo.com will continue to give away big prizes throughout the summer, not only is there over half a million pounds in free game prize money up for grabs, but also a family holiday to Centre Parcs, spa breaks, shopping vouchers and much more. It couldn't be easier, why not try it for yourself and maybe you will be celebrating soon like Sue. Sign up at Costa Bingo and feel some of the Costa sunshine in your home this summer - even if it's not shining outside!
