LONDON, September 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- If you can measure how good a Bingo site is by the number of visits it gets, then Jackpotjoy.com is officially the UK's best Bingo site over the past 6 months, according to Experian Hitwise who measure the market share of visits to all the country's top Bingo sites.
Back in March Jackpotjoy.com completely re-launched their Bingo site, not an easy thing to do in a competitive market like online Bingo. If the public didn't like what they saw, Jackpotjoy could see even their most loyal members disappear.

But Jackpotjoy.com's seven years of experience haven't gone to waste and from January to June 2010 they ranked number 1 against all Bingo sites in the UK, beating the likes of Foxy, Gala and Tombola, according to leading global online competitive intelligence service Experian Hitwise.*

"It's been a real team effort," explains head of Jackpotjoy, Adele Lawton. "We're all delighted with the achievement."
The re-launch saw a new look site, as well as a brand new Bingo product. For more on what's new at Jackpotjoy, please see http://www.jackpotjoy.com/whatsnew
"Change is always very challenging," Adele told us, "both for the consumers and for the business itself. Our success here reflects the ability we nurture around the office as well as the strength of the Jackpotjoy brand in the market place."
The Bingo site was re-launched at the end of March 2010, and it was quickly followed by a Hitwise Number 1 Ranking for April.
"It was interesting to get the first award almost at the same time as launching the site. It meant that we'd gone into the launch with a market leading position which we then had to keep hold of with a completely new product.
"The fact that we've maintained our position for the next three months as well - between April and June - is firm proof that the re-launch worked."
This latest news precedes a major push at Jackpotjoy.com that's been planned for some time.
"Yes, it's true," Adele confirms, "we do have a big push coming this autumn. I'm not going to reveal too much but, as we've said before, we'll be going into homes across the country, turning Jackpotjoy.com into a household name. It's very exciting..."
