LONDON, August 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Jackpotjoy, one of the biggest gaming destinations on the web, have announced another big winner. Miss Elaine T, from an undisclosed location, gave a statement to the site on hearing of her massive win.
Elaine won £16,983 at Jackpotjoy's great 75 Ball Bingo games. Her game began with just a 10p stake. Elaine expressed shock and delight in her statement, saying she was 'surprised and very happy' with her win.
Jackpotjoy has offered its warmest congratulations to the latest in a long line of winners at the low-stakes classic, of which the site has a number of variations to play.
75-ball bingo is the standard North American version of a classic game. Jackpotjoy offers one of the largest selections of this particular variant on the web.
Gameplay is simple and suitable for all. Onscreen is a 5x5 grid, laid out with cards numbered from 1 to 75. Players must purchase cards before the game starts. A bingo caller announces numbers - just like in the traditional bingo halls - and players mark off any corresponding numbers they have on their card (or cards - operating multiple cards is a popular feature of the game).
To win, numbers must be marked off according to a predetermined pattern (which appears in the top left of the screen). The first player to complete the pattern wins.
The big draw for regular players like Elaine is the sense of civic spirit, so vital to the bingo experience. A chat function allows players to talk to each other as they go. Chat moderators keep things ticking over and friendly-like.
All bingo games contribute to a 'progressive jackpot' which pools a percentage of each ticket purchased in order to give one lucky player the chance to win a huge cash prize. But jackpots are almost beside the point. Jackpotjoy's bingo is more an online social gathering for folk to gather together and have some fun. Then again, somebody has to win eventually.
The Gamesys Group was founded by Noel Hayden in April 2001 with a small team of developers. The aim was to build a profitable online entertainment business providing casino games, online bingo and slots. Due to Jackpotjoy's success in the UK the company has established international growth, Jackpotjoy fans can now win money in Sweden or play bingo in Spain.
