JackpotCity Bingo Winner Scoops £25,000 An Hour After Signing UpDecember 1, 2009 12:05 pm
One lucky player didn’t take long to strike gold after winning £25,000 at online bingo site JackpotCity Bingo just one hour after signing up for a new account. What makes the win even more remarkable is that it didn’t come from his intended bingo game but from an online casino side-game known as Lots-A-Loot which he decided to play prior to his bingo game starting.
All that is known about the player is that he is from Hartlepool, UK and following his huge windfall, he commented: “Luck was on my side at JackpotCity Bingo I guess. I bought tickets for an online bingo game and figured I’d play some of the new slots for a few minutes until it started. When it hit, I literally had tea coming out of my nose. I’d heard about the upgrade and thought I’d check the site out. I’m quite glad I did.”
The site only recently broke from its long standing software provider Virtue Fusion and instead moved to Microgaming software believing the move would help enhance its reputation as a great place to play online bingo. The change would seem vindicated as JackpotCity Bingo has seen a steady rise in popularity since the switch, with particular growth in the casino side-games.
“We are not limited in what we can offer with Microgaming,” said Head of Bingo at JackpotyCity Bingo Gilbert Puente. “The side-game are yet another reason for people to come.”
JackpotcityBingo.com is owned by Gibraltar based gaming company ‘The Carmen Media Group’ and following the pay-out, Puente commented:
“I can’t wait to see more and more wins like this. We already have a tight-knit community. With the upgrade, JackpotCity Bingo can now offer progressive jackpots in online bingo that get easier to win as the jackpot climbs, more than 100 new side-games, better odds for our loyal customers now that some rooms aren’t connected to gigantic networks. Change is always difficult, but as wins like this start to pile up, I think people will realize this really is a great thing.”
