One lucky bingo player has won nearly 2 grand playing online bingo at Jackpotyjoy.com. Mrs. Tina M scooped GBP 1,968 on the website’s 75 ball version of the game – on the occasion of her 50th birthday.
Bingo 75 is an enormously popular permutation of online bingo, appealing in its simplicity. A 5×5 grid is laid out with cards numbered from 1 to 75. An online bingo caller announces random numbers while players mark of each number they see called, across however many cards they have purchased.
Winners like Mrs. M have daubed predetermined patterns or marked off all the numbers on a card, known as a ‘blackout’. The patterns appear during gameplay in the top left of the window. Even if other spaces are marked off, a player can win as long as they have daubed all of the required boxes.
A chat function lends a civic atmosphere to proceedings, turning a standard game of online bingo into a community experience akin to the traditional bingo hall. A chat window appears in the bottom of the screen, moderated by a ‘Chat Host’ – highlighted in red – who looks after new players, answering questions and providing a point of contact. Chat Host’s also hold their own games-within-a-game, where extra cash prizes are up for grabs.
Bingo 75 attracts longtime bingo lovers as well as those new to the experience. The possibility of automatically monitoring a few cards at once gives players more chances of winning than with a traditional, manual game.
Latest winner Mrs. M is delighted with her birthday win, saying, ‘Well I would like to thank Jackpotjoy for my amazing lounge progressive jackpot win. It couldn’t have come at a better time – my 50th birthday – and what a fantastic birthday pressie it is.
“I treated myself to a new hairdo and some new clothes and took the whole family for a slap up Chinese meal in celebration of my birthday and the grandkids have got their eyes on some good Christmas presents. Thank you once again!’
