A mother’s £28k win enables her to visit grandchildren in New Zealand. Easter came early in Merseyside when one lucky lady found she had won nearly £29k on leading online bingo site, Gala Bingo.  Such a windfall would be a fantastic treat for any family but this has been extra special for this St Helen’s resident who wishes to remain anonymous, as it means she can book a trip of a lifetime and be reunited with her daughter in New Zealand.  The lucky winner, whose daughter has lived on the other side of the world for eight years, said: “We haven’t seen each other in five years and I am so excited about being reunited with her. Plus I’m over the moon as I will be able to see my beautiful grandchildren for the second time.”  She had been feeling lucky after winning £3 earlier in the evening, but it seemed £28,840.29 was to be her lucky number when she scooped the popular bingo site’s cash climber jackpot.  The ecstatic mum said: “I jumped up and shouted upstairs to my son. I just couldn’t believe my eyes as I thought it said £28 not £28,000! Things like this just don’t happen to me. This win really has changed my life! I can’t wait to go and see my daughter in New Zealand and without this money I would not have been able to go. It just goes to show that anyone can win at Gala Bingo.” Lesley Hall, online PR manager at Gala Bingo said: “We are absolutely delighted to hear from the family who became one of our 500,000 winners per month. We pay out over £65 million a year and it’s always lovely to hear stories about how winning on the site can make a difference to people’s lives. We hope the family really enjoy their trip to New Zealand this Easter.”
