Imagine going to work, it just being a normal day, and then you come home engaged! Well this is exactly what happened to one lucky Mecca Bingo club employee Shauna Crawshaw.

Shauna, who had turned 19 that day, had no idea that her boyfriend of seven months, Daniel Clamp, was planning to propose to her that day in front of at least 100 bingo players- now there’s a bingo bonus they didn’t expect.

The romantic gesture took place at Mecca Bingo club in Middleway Park, Burton. Daniel, a 21 year old who lives in Thorn Tree Lane, Newhall, decided that he wanted to propose in front of an audience and thought there was no better place to do it that at Shauna’s workplace.

He commented: “I thought that proposing to her at work would be quite special.”

Daniel had put some thought into how it was all going to work and spoke to Shauna’s manager, who agreed he could use the bingo hall microphone, usually used to call the numbers, to pop the question.

Miss Crawshaw, from Springfield Road in Swadlincote, added: “My manager told me to come over and told the caller to stop the game because Dan had something to say to me.

“Dan got up on the stage and said that he loved me and he wanted to marry me.”

Shauna then used to microphone to give her response which was obviously a yes!

The loved up couple then went out for a romantic celebration meal that same evening. The couple have not yet thought of setting a date but are enjoying the first stages of being newly engaged. However, they have said that it will be after Shauna has completed her beauty course at Burton College and Daniel has finished his sports development coaching degree.

Although you may not see such romantic gestures by playing online bingo, you can still get your bingo thrills at sites such as Posh Bingo and Eat Sleep Bingo.
