There are few better ways to welcome in a New Year than with a big bingo win and for Miss Jana S that dream became a reality.
She won her amazing prize while playing at online bingo site Jackpotjoy.
Jana scooped a massive progressive jackpot of over £90,000 while playing Bingo 90 in the last few weeks of 2011, ensuring that 2012 has got off to a dream start.
Fronted by the smiling face of the ‘Queen of Bingo’, Jackpotjoy has earned a reputation amongst online gamers for being a site that offers its players regular chances to win big money. The company hosts a large variety of bingo games for its users, but it’s much more than simply a bingo site. Slot games such as Deal or No Deal, Wonderland and Red or Black also draw in many players due to their simple game play, regular payouts and impressive progressive jackpots, while fans of online casino games can enjoy games such as Atlantic City Blackjack and Roulette Splendide.
It is unsurprising, therefore, to discover that Jackpotjoy has been named the winning bingo operator of the year and slots operator of the year at the prestigious EGaming Review Awards for 2011. Fortunately for its customers, it is not just the company that has been winning big in recent times.
After playing Bingo 90 and landing the progressive jackpot of £90,143, lucky winner Jana revealed that she had struggled to come to terms with the sheer scale of her life-changing victory. She admitted that the win “has been a shock”, albeit a very pleasant one, and that she spent the first few days after her success “trying to take it in as it is so unreal!”
Jana’s windfall came playing Bingo 90, one of the simplest versions of the classic 90-ball bingo that you can play. Playing the game is simply a case of selecting which of the online bingo rooms you would like to play in, with each room sorted according to the price of individual bingo tickets, the number of participating players or the size of the jackpot available.
Once in the room, the player commences playing. The software, ensuring that players do not miss a single number called, marks their purchased bingo cards automatically. This makes it easier for novice players to play more cards and thus have more chances to win. Cards are also sorted automatically, so a player can easily see which of their cards is most likely to win during the game.
The winner of the game is the first to mark off all the numbers on their card; and to add an additional element of excitement, a progressive jackpot runs across all games in progress. For each ticket bought, Jackpotjoy allocates a percentage of that fee into the progressive jackpot and the amount contained therein can swell to vast sums of money as the jackpot is only awarded when a ‘full house’ is called within a certain number of balls being drawn.
It was precisely this set of circumstances which saw Jana take home her vast jackpot win, stunning her into a state of initial disbelief and laying the foundation for what promises to be an exciting, wealthy and happy 2012!
Fortunately for other punters hoping for a similar stroke of luck as that enjoyed by Jana, there are still many other Jackpotjoy games available that offer progressive jackpots of similar, or even greater value. Slot games such as Wonderland, Red or Black and the very popular Deal or No Deal regularly offer progressive jackpots well in excess of £300,000 for one lucky winner.
Bingo games such as Bejeweled Bingo, as well as Bingo 90, also frequently offer windfalls of over £150,000, while many other games offer smaller jackpots of tens of thousands of pounds that are won by delighted players on a regular basis.
