Like many of you, we had been watching the GSN ChaChingo Bingo jackpot climb to record highs and wondered, “Who will win?” We got our answer on Saturday, August 10, 2013. Congratulations to Mr03SS, who won $11,568!
Mr03SS, whose first name is Rod, was gracious enough to share his thoughts on winning and snippets of his life with us. We love getting to know our players, and really appreciate it when winners take the time to do this.
Rod’s words brought a huge smile to all of our faces. Here’s what he had to say:
I was so happy and surprised when I found out that I had won the Bingo Jackpot of $11,568.00. It took my breath away! I’ve been playing day and night hoping I might be the winner. I had been out shopping that morning. When I came home my wife said “you won the jackpot!” I said, “you’re kidding me,” dropped the groceries and went to my computer. There it was – Mr03SS is a winner!
I am 67 years old and still love playing games. Still a kid, I guess! My favorite game on GSN is Outlaw Video Poker. My favorite show to watch is Family Feud with Steve Harvey. He’s the man!
My advice is never give up on winning, you have the same chance as anyone else.
Great advice Rod!
Below are photographs Rod sent us. In the first picture he’s holding a balloon. It’s for his grandson Grant who passed away at the age of 15. He had MD, and Rod’s family releases balloons in his memory every year on Grant’s birthday.
