Wink Player Wins Mini Cooper as Promotion ClosesWink Bingo’s “Win a Mini Cooper” promotion has come to a close with one lucky player driving away from the event with a brand new set of wheels. The contest began late in 2008 and has just finished, hosting a wealth of great stories and a dramatic series of events leading up to its conclusion.
Joanne Kane, a mother of two from Werneth, Oldham in Lancashire came out the winner of the fantastic prize and is now the proud owner of a brand new BMW Mini Cooper valued at £16,000. Kane’s win couldn’t have come at a better time — the Lancashire mum had recently lost her job before her car gave out as well. She had taken to riding a bike, being forced to do so due to a lack of steady income. Kane’s award wasn’t easy to come by however. After the “Win a Mini Cooper” bingo game played on January 1st, 2009, Kane was part of Wink’s first-ever draw as she called a full house in the same number of turns as Swindon in Wiltshire competitor, Christine. The two women entered lucky numbers for the showdown and Kane won, using her children’s birthdates along with the (decidedly fitting) date she passed her driving test.
It’s certainly one of the most interesting stories to come out of the bingo world in some time and is packed with some great details and action. Joanne Kane could hardly have deserved her prize more however. She is now receiving some well-deserved publicity in Wink Bingo’s newest viral advertisement currently running on the popular gaming site.
