Online bingo on the rise

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

By Graham Clifford

Last year online bingo firms in the UK raked in £650 million from online bingo players and that figure is expected to rise again this year with the continued growth in online bingo. which is 888’s online bingo site, was largely attributed for accounting for 888’s big £9 million increase in profits from the first to second quarter of 2008.

This is just one of a host of online bingo websites which are now available to UK players. There are now hundreds of bingo websites to choose from in the UK compared with just four years ago when there were less than twenty.

The UK boasts the biggest online bingo market but other countries have also seen the female-dominated game catch on. Internet bingo is expected to be developed in more and more countries as the online bingo craze goes global. Spain is currently the fastest growing online bingo market in Europe.

New sites then offer bigger and better promotions with increasing cash jackpots and other prizes. In an increasingly competitive market the online bingo providers are coming up with new and innovative ways of giving themselves the edge over rivals.

Television advertising has grown to accommodate this new market with several leading online bingo operators advertising their websites on the box.

These include’s advert with comedian Vic Reeves and Foxy Bingo’s award winning popular adverts featuring the Foxy character.

Foxy Bingo also sponsor ITV’s daytime programme The Jeremy Kyle show. Foxy Bingo were rewarded with their advertising campaign by winning “Best Marketing Campaign” at the Bullet Business Awards in June. The firm were also rewarded with the coveted title of “Bingo Operator of the Year”.

In such a lucrative industry even a small piece of the online bingo pie is worth millions and so the standard of sites available to British players is second to none in the world.

Player wins two different jackpots in same month at 32Red

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

32Red Casino has announced that one of its players claimed a second large jackpot win from the same slot machine in under a month. The lucky player has taken home a total of £37,864.09 in just 17 days and becomes one of the online casino’s luckiest customers.

With a history of big winners, 32Red can demonstrate a series of large payouts that include a £1,094,112.81 win on Major Millions, which was one of the biggest payouts ever recorded at an online casino, and £1,000,641 on King Cashalot. Both of these wins came from one of 32Red Casino’s 150+ slot machines and represent just two of twelve jackpot games available at 32Red, including Mega Moolah – the jackpot to which currently stands at over £4,500,000.

Remarkably, these latest jackpots all came from the same slot machine, Cash Splash. The casino reports the probability of this happening as very low, with Ed Ware, 32Red CEO, remarking “Although large jackpot wins are quite common at 32Red, the chances of the same player winning the jackpot from the same game twice in a month are both staggering and wonderful.”

The player from Dorset in the UK logged in as normal on the 9th October and loaded the Cash Splash progressive online slot game, triggering the jackpot of £22,949.09 shortly after. He then logged in again on the 26th October and won a further £14,915, making a total payout of £37,864.09 for him in October. Ware said, “This series of big wins couldn’t come at a better time too, with another winner at 32Red Casino well and truly beating the credit crunch in October and lining up a very special Christmas.”

The Cash Splash progressive slot is available to play in two forms – as a 3 reel, single payline slot and a 5 reel, 15 payline machine. The jackpot is triggered by the game’s logo symbol falling across the reels on the selected payline. When this happens the displayed jackpot total within the game is the figure won by the player. This amount varies and is connected to how much the game is played, with a fraction added to the jackpot every time the reels are spun. After the player’s second win, the jackpot was reset and now stands at over £11,500, prompting Ware to ask, “Can this same player make it 3 wins in short succession? Either way it has to be his luckiest autumn and we wish him the best of luck in the future”.
