Shared bingo card

Karry Barth bingo jackpotBarth is one of the hairdressers at First Choice Haircutters in Simcoe. She bought a $100 bingo card on behalf of herself and co-worker Tanya Pearson. Barth felt like she was going to pass out when she realized she had hit the jackpot.

Completely in shock

“I immediately called bingo as I didn’t know that I had to wait five seconds after the number shows up. However, I was in complete shock so nobody heard my call”, the 29-year-old bingo player commented.

Second-to-last participant

Initially, the two hairdressers would play bingo together, but Pearson wasn’t able to attend the session due to a private matter. For that reason, Barth played on behalf of her colleague. The 29-year-old Simcoe resident arrived two hours after the opening at the bingo venue, but they let her enter the bingo event as the second-to-last competitor.
