LONDON, July 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Well, we are happy to announce details of just one of our latest bingo winners, who recently won £3,397 at Jackpotjoy's popular bingo. He released a statement of thanks this week to mark his lucky break, and has said he is very happy about his winnings - provided he can stop his wife from spending them all!
Mr. Gary W said: "I'm very happy with the win. I've not made any plans as yet but the wife has… thanks for the win!"
We think that means he's happy with his lot. It certainly didn't take much effort or money to achieve - 75 ball bingo is one of the easiest games on the web, as we shall explain…
Bingo is a millennia-old game which has probably been played in some form or another since the invention of numbers. Its appeal lies in its simplicity. And our online version is no different.
All visitors to our impressive selection of 75 ball bingo rooms are greeted with a 5x5 grid containing cards numbered from 1 to 75. A bingo caller 'shouts' the numbers out to the room and each player marks off any shouted numbers they have on their card. Players can daub multiple cards in one game, thereby increasing their chances of winning.
Meanwhile, patterns of numbers appear in the top left of the screen. If all those numbers on a particular card have been marked, it's known as a blackout. As long as players daub the required boxes, they win, even if they've filled in additional numbers which aren't part of it. Believe us when we say, it's a lot simpler when you're in the room!
The chat rooms are a vital element, as they turn what would have been a standard game of internet bingo into a communal experience reminiscent of the traditional bingo hall.
The Gamesys Group was founded in April 2001 by Noel Hayden and a small team of developers. Since then their flagship site, Jackpotjoy.com, has become the UKs leading online gaming destination giving away over £4,000,000 every day and producing 10 winners every second.

Jackpotjoy's Swedish website has opened recently and is already becoming the nation's favourite in terms of casino and bingo games.
