LONDON, January 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The latest big bingo winner at gaming website Jackpotjoy has been announced. Mrs. Louise M won nearly three thousand pounds playing the popular game, of which there are many permutations on the website.
Among the popular versions of the classic game, Bingo Royale is an up-to-date re-imagining, packed with plenty of chances to win and bonus features. It's more accessible than many online bingo competitors, offering tickets priced from 10p to a pound.
As players work through the game, marking off their cards and hoping to score a jackpot just like Louise did, they get closer to meeting the mysterious 'Queen of Bingo'. Looking remarkably similar to Barbara Windsor, the Queen has the power to hand out Royal Pardons for those on the cusp of exiting the game, by handing out 5 extra balls.
Bingo Royale is based on the classic, 90 ball bingo popular in bingo halls during the 20th century. Players can purchase credit (ranging from 10p to £1), and work towards the Royal Pardon Jackpot. At this stage, the Queen of Bingo calls for more balls, and her Royal Dogs dutifully bark up to five times to determine the number of balls. Similar to the rest of the site's 'Progressive Jackpot', a percentage of each ticket bought for the game goes towards the prize.
If a player's card is completed within 36 balls, there is a chance for the Super Jackpot, which is determined by the price of the ticket (£1000 for a 10p game, £5000 for a 25p game, etc).
One of the easiest ways to have a fun punt on the web, online bingo is proving popular with players who would not otherwise consider gambling. Mrs. M is certainly delighted with her win, saying "Christmas is coming so it's come at a good time… I have 11 grandkids so it will
be nice to treat them all!"
The Gamesys Group was founded by Noel Hayden in April 2001 with a small team of developers. The aim was to build a profitable entertainment business providing great online games. For more information and updates about Jackpotjoy please refer to our Twitter page.
