My wife, Jacqueline, was in our family group playing bingo last summer at the Manor sports hotel, on Dartmoor. There were three evening games that week. On the Monday she won first prize, a bottle of Prosecco for a full house. On the Wednesday we all sat elsewhere and we won nothing. The person in her seat won third prize.
