We know how much you love playing Tele bingo — so we’ve decided to make it even better.

Today, the prize has been doubled — from £500 to an incredible £1,000.

The cash prize could go some way towards buying a new car, a holiday in the sun or for making some home improvements.

And all you have to do to be in with a chance to win is pick up the Weekend Telegraph today (Saturday).

As ever, your unique game card will be printed in our Seven entertainment magazine, which will feature its usual mix of fashion, food, supermarket best buys and a comprehensive guide to your week on the TV.

Evening Telegraph editor Andrew Kellock said: “We know how much our readers love to play bingo — and with a £1,000 prize, it’s become even more exciting.

“Double the prize means double the fun, so make sure to pick up your copy of the Tele.

“It’s just another reason why you shouldn’t miss the Weekend Telegraph, which as ever features a great mix of local news, views and sport as well as our free Seven entertainment magazine.

“It’s great to be able to reward our loyal readers with this amazing chance to win — best of luck to everyone.”

Evening Telegraph marketing executive Nic Hutchison hopes for a full house in Tele bingo.

Evening Telegraph marketing executive Nic Hutchison encouraged everyone to make sure they pick up their game card.

Nic said: “It’s so exciting to be playing for a bigger prize.

“You’ve all got a chance to win £1,000 — so make sure to pick up your Weekend Tele to get your numbers and grid.

“Just think what you could treat you and your loved ones to with a £1,000 prize — the possibilities are endless.

“Best of luck!”

A selection of numbers are printed inside the Evening Telegraph daily: reading from left to right, from the top line to the bottom line within the bingo panel (usually within the Your Voice section of the Tele). If any numbers published in-paper appear on your bingo grid for the game in play — mark them off.

When you’ve marked off all 15 numbers on your grid for the game in play, you can make a claim for that game and the prize money.

So eyes down — and you could find yourself £1,000 the richer.
