Before playing a round of iBingo, Anthony put some strawberry turnovers in the oven as a treat. When he and his wife saw they won the jackpot, they couldn’t believe it! Minutes later, Anthony wondered what that smell was – it was the freshly burnt turnovers! #AtlanticWin 🎉 pic.twitter.com/1WJKvBDjso
