Seven readers claim prizes in bingo game Roads to Riches
WINNERS of the first week of The Post's Roads to Riches Bingo game poured in yesterday.
Seven readers claimed their £100 prizes ahead of next week's second round in the £25,000 giveaway.
Those who picked up a bingo card in last week's paper ticked off road names printed throughout the week to fill in their cards. A handful of lucky winners with full houses called in yesterday to claim their prize as another week of bingo kicked off.
The next card will be released next Monday, March 11, with The Post.
This week's delicious £5 5 O'CLOCKTAIL is a refreshing Tequila Sunrise. Available everyday from our Bar for only £5 between 5pm & 7pm.
Terms: £5 cocktail applies to the cocktail of the week.

Valid until: Monday, May 27 2013
Among yesterday's winners was Sandra Hawkes, 70, from Henbury. She told The Post: "I couldn't believe my luck. Then when I called in I couldn't get through at first and I wondered if it was all true.
"When I got a call back I thought 'thank God for that'."
Sue White, 61, from Horfield, said: "I checked the paper last Friday and saw that I had won but didn't really believe it until I rang in.
"I have got 12 grandchildren in all so the money will help pay for a few birthday presents."
Each game card features ten Bristol road names. Rather than two fat ladies or legs 11, it could be Park Street or Gloucester Road completing a full house.
More bingo cards will be inserted into the paper on March 11 and March 25 as part of the six-week promotion.
Winning players will be asked to give details of their card's verification code in order to receive a £100 cheque in the post.
As well as checking the paper every day for road names, players can also tune in to Jack FM to find out the daily bonus street name worth a further £100 in prize money.
The giveaway is being sponsored by bingoclubhouse.com, which is offering a third way for readers to win with their bingo card. The website will stage an online game every Thursday.
