AN Ipswich bingo club has paid out a whopping jackpot of £31,000 to a 66-year-old woman.

The lucky winner plays once or twice a week with a friend at the Gala, in the Orwell Retail Park.

She scooped the prize last Tuesday and plans to share her haul with her 71-year-old friend. She won the National Bingo Game prize of £29,140, plus a further regional prize of £2,039 and the club prize of £143.

"I am still trembling, it was all such a shock," said the winner, who comes from Colchester, but declined to be named.

Nigel Calloway, manager of the club, said: "We were all very pleased for her. As soon as it was announced a massive cheer went up."
