Online Bingo Player Scoops Pounds Sterling 25K X Factor Jackpot at Costa Bingo

X Factor Slots winner is singing all the way to the bank with record breaking Pounds Sterling 25,000 jackpot

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 3, 2009) - Television's X Factor may still have several weeks to run but, at Costa Bingo, they already have a winner.

Christmas came early for Wakefield mum Margaret C who hit the jackpot playing the X Factor Instant Slots game at Costa Bingo.

The 45-year-old West Yorkshire winner won a massive Pounds Sterling 25,000, and plans to have a stress free Christmas and share some of the money with her newly engaged daughter.

"I was really happy when I won the money. I am going to give some to my only daughter who has just got engaged," she said.

"This year, I am looking forward to having a really enjoyable Christmas with no worries. I have played bingo ever since I was small and I really love the game. I especially love playing at Costa Bingo," she said.

It's no wonder that Margaret - who's online alias is belfastgirl - enjoys playing at Costa Bingo: she's only been a member of the free online bingo site since November.

The Pounds Sterling 25k jackpot was the biggest win Costa Bingo has ever paid out on the slots, according to operations director Debbie Gent.

"We've had a lot of interest in the X Factor Instant Slots because the television program is currently nearing its climax," she said.

"Everyone here at Costa is thrilled for Margaret. What a great start to Christmas for her and her daughter. We all hope she really enjoys her winnings."
