TWO lucky players won a combined £43,000 in one weekend at Mecca Bingo.

The club only sees about six big wins a year, but on Saturday, November 15, it paid out more than £18,000 to one winner. The following evening another player won more than £25,000.

In an average week the club pays out a total of £50,000 across all of its games. The last win on this scale at the club, on Tamworth Road, was on July 29, when one player won about £20,000.

The winners, who were both regular Mecca customers, did not want to be identified.

Richard Matthews, general manager, was working on Saturday afternoon. "They were ecstatic. They jumped up and screamed, it was quite an emotional one," he said.

"The atmosphere was great, it was electric. They were really excited, especially knowing they'd won that much instantly and with Christmas coming up."

The Saturday win on the Cashline game totalled £18,245.90. The Sunday win on the National game totalled £25,246.60.
