An online bingo fan may not have won money when she entered a recent competition, but instead was rewarded with a new Mini Cooper worth £16,000.
Joanne Kane became the first ever winner of a car from Wink Bingo, after winning a play-off to seal the victory.
An initial game to win the prize was declared a draw after Ms Kane and another entrant both called ‘house’ on the same number.
So a play-off game between the pair was announced with both players getting to choose their own two numbers, with Ms Kane’s nine and 11 balls drawn out before those selected by her rival.
Ms Kane said: "I’ve never won anything in my life.
"It was so exciting; I screamed and screamed and screamed. The kids were screaming, the dog was going mad. I can’t explain how wonderful it felt."
Among the highlights of the Mini Cooper are that it has a top speed of 126 miles per hour and can accelerate from still to 62 miles per hour in 9.1 seconds.
