Among the various online casino games available these days, Bingo is the most popular and widely played game. It is a game of luck during which a player matches numbers pre-printed in different arrangements on 5×5 tickets. The numbers are randomly called by the game host and the player will mark them until a line is completed. It is an exciting and fast-paced game which does not require any special skills. It is all about fun, however you can still win big. There are also people who win the biggest online slot jackpots. However, let’s take a look at some of the biggest bingo winners in the world.
John Orchard from Lincolnshire
In December 2012, while playing at Butlers Bingo site, John Orchard from Lincolnshire won a jackpot of £5.9 million. He came at the top spot among the biggest bingo winners in the world. He was only 5 years away from retirement and was working at the Jobcentre. He continued working for a little while longer until he realised how big the win was.
In 2009, a Greek businessman by the name of Georgios M. won a prize of £5.1m (€6.3m). He was said to be 36 years old when he won the prize. However, since he preferred to keep his win anonymous, not much is known about him.

Soraya Lowell from South Lanarkshire
The second largest bingo win in the UK is Soraya Lowell from South Lanarkshire. She won her largest win of £1.2m in 2008 and she chose to split her wins with her neighbour who unfortunately passed away. So, by 2012, she filed for bankruptcy.
Before Soraya’s great win, another big bingo winner was a 53-year-old grandmother known as Christine Bradfield. She was from Bargoed, Caerphilly County and she scooped over £1.1m in January 2008 at The Castle Club in Merthyr Tydfil. She is one of the UK’s biggest in-house bingo winner mentioned in the Guinness Book of World of Records. However, she resumed her £5.50 an hour job of part-time petrol station cashier as she did not want to feel bored while spending her wins.
Darryl Howe from Moreton-in-Marsh, Glos has set the world record for the fastest bingo win by scooping a jackpot of £18,000 on full house after just 23 calls. He was only 24 years old and he won the prize just after he opened his account at William Hill Bingo. Experts have even contacted the Guinness Book of World Records to check if it is the fastest full house win ever.
Since so many people have been able to scoop such big wins on bingo games, you never know when it could be your turn to win big. You may also get the chance to win a hattrick in a 90-ball bingo game, which means winning the 1st line, 2nd line and Full House. The key is to think positively while enjoying your favourite game!
