The semi-finals of the Gala Ultimate Bingo Championship 2011 took place at the end of August, where over 3,000 of you battled it out for your chance to be crowned Ultimate Bingo Champion – and walk away with a huge cash prize, as well as a holiday to Las Vegas!
A lucky few made it through, and will be jetting off to Gibraltar for the Grand Final of this amazing competition!
Isobel O’Rourke is our Dundee finalist, and she spoke about her amazement at winning the regional title, as well as her love of bingo!
“I couldn’t believe it when I won the regional title — I still can’t believe it,” she said. ”Gibraltar is somewhere I have always wanted to visit, so I am very excited about going.”
“I think if I won you would have to pick me up off the floor — I am not that lucky!” she continued. “But you have to be in it to win, so I have just as much chance as anyone else.”
Isobel has had many congratulations and messages of support since she qualified to take part in the high-profile Grand Final! She said: “I never realised I had so many friends. People have been coming up and congratulating me and wishing me well.”
Much of this support came from friends Isobel has made through her love of bingo! She’s a dedicated Gala member, and said: “It’s a place you can go on your own and enjoy,” she said. “I have met so many different friends through it.”
Congratulations from everyone at MyGala Isobel!
