LONDON, January 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Gaming website Jackpotjoy has announced details of its latest winner. Mr Andy P won nearly 4k playing Monopoly Snap.
Part card game, part Bingo, Jackpotjoy's Monopoly Snap offers a whole new way of playing your favourite SNAP! game online, complete with that classic Monopoly board game feel. Players buy up to five separate hands of five cards per game by clicking the selected hand. Ticket prices vary for each game.
There are five ways to win in Monopoly Snap; getting the match bonus, qualifying for the end of game token bonus, winning the community chest jackpot or simply taking part when anyone else wins and, lastly, calling SNAP! if you can match a full hand.
Once the game starts, the dealer turns over cards one at a time. If you have a match, the letter S will appear. For each match you get, the next letter in the word SNAP appears, capped by an exclamation mark. If you match a full hand of five, you will make the word SNAP! The jackpot is then yours - varying in size depending on the number of players in the game.
To make the games even more fun, Jackpotjoy provide a chat function, allowing all players to communicate with each other, be it commiseration or congratulations. A chat host oversees the room, answering any questions a player may have.
Mr. P, who won £3,978, was delighted with his win which came "after watching QPR lose in my new shirt… I later joined Jackpotjoy and now have a new lucky shirt. I'm so pleased that everyone in the room managed to benefit from the win! Thank you".

The aim was to build a profitable online entertainment business providing the best bingo sites and online games.
