A MUM-OF-THREE from Kidderminster will be able to go abroad for the first time in 25 years after winning £50,000 at bingo.

Kylie Preece, aged 30, of Sion Hill, won the jackpot on the National Bingo Game at Shipleys in Kidderminster on July 25 - after playing every week for 12 years.

She said: "I'm normally here every Thursday, but we had gone to visit my partner Dan's grandad in hospital so I wasn't going to come that day.

"We were on the way back when I said I'll pop in. It was around 4pm.

"Normally I pick a certain number bee, but I picked a different number that day. From then on, it's a bit of a blur.

"I was counting down, saying four numbers to go, three numbers to go, two numbers to go, one number to go. The last number was my unlucky number 13.

"When I got a full house I was screaming because I thought I'd won £128. Then someone shouted you've won the £50,000 jackpot and I didn't believe them.

"I couldn't walk, I had to sit down. I rang Dan and he didn't believe me - I had to send him a picture of my numbers as proof.

"It didn't feel real until the money went into my account on Wednesday. I had to send Dan out to check the money was really there."

Kylie and boyfriend Dan Matthews, aged 26, are set to get married next August, but say the money won't change their wedding plans.

Kylie said: "We're happy with the wedding we organised so we don't want to change anything.

"It's a lot of money but it's not going to be there forever.

"We weren't going to go on a honeymoon but now we are - a relaxing beach break somewhere. I haven't been abroad since I was four years old.

"We're also going to surprise the kids with a trip to Disney Land Paris."

Asked if she'll carry on playing Bingo after her big win, Kylie said: "I was back at Shipleys the next day - and I won another £100.

"I play because it's a chance for me to have some time to myself. I've been playing since I was 18 so I've got to know everyone here."

Shipleys area manager John Anderson said: "I jumped out of my seat when I found out one of our customers had won the jackpot on the National Game.

"You have to get a full house in 16 numbers or less and Kylie got it in 14.

"It's a life-changing amount of money, especially for a young couple, and we're all so happy for them."

Shipleys Kidderminster is treating Kylie and three friends to a limousine ride this evening to celebrate her win, followed by a free game of Bingo and champagne on arrival.
