The lucky player won the prize at Buzz Bingo Sheffield Wadsley, on Kilner Way, during the Big Buzz Special, and she plans to split the money with a close friend.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, has been a regular at the Sheffield Wadsley club for many years and visits the club weekly for a game of bingo.

She couldn't believe it when she finally won last month during the same weekly session she attends – and right before Christmas, no less.
