When I was little, my Grandma used to take me to Tombola evenings which was like bingo but you won prizes. I loved it! I would sit there, dabber in hand, and dob dob dob away when my numbers were called out.
"Grandma...I've got a line. Shout for me please."
I was quite shy. Didn't want people knowing that I'd won that giant fluffy toy or the tin of Quality Street. Don't know why as I proudly walked out with both arms full of prizes.
Guess I've always been lucky even from a young age.
I've now moved on to online bingo. My Grandma died many years ago now and it would feel strange sitting playing bingo with anyone else I think.
I like that I can win money as, let's face it, who doesn't?!
I'm a member on many bingo sites including 888 Ladies.
Three fat ladies 888
I like that I can play a bit of traditional bingo but also have a flutter on some of the various slot games.
My favourite game is Bejeweled. What girl doesn't like a bit of bling? I like the graphics and the ease of play. I extremely like that with the slot games you can win large jackpots.
If I win little amounts, then I tend to have a few more games but if it is over about £30 I will withdraw it. This then goes into my Beetle fund.
Yes, Beetle fund.
My children (funded by me) bought me a Beetle as I have always wanted one. The number plate says 'MUM' on it ~ such a perfect gift.
It's a good job I play my bingo from home as this car won't be taking me anyway for some time! It now even has a bit of foliage growing in it.
If I won a big amount from 888 Ladies then I would send my car off to be professionally restored.
That's my dream. Just need that full house now or the jackpot. *fingers crossed*
