Gibraltar-licensed online bingo site PoshBingo.co.uk is set to start the New Year in style by giving players the chance to take home a share of £30,000 in cash courtesy of its special Joy Pot game.
PoshBingo.co.uk is a member of the JoyOfBingo.com Network alongside fellow sites RedBusBingo.com, TastyBingo.com and WinkBingo.com and revealed that its sister domains conducted similar promotions earlier this year to give away a total of £75,000.
The 90-ball Joy Pot game takes place on January 1 at 10pm London time and will award the full-house winner with £25,000 in cash while the two-line winner will take away £3,000. Players can pre-purchase up to 72 tickets at five pounds each while the one-line winner will get a cash prize of £2,000.
PoshBingo.co.uk stated that players short on cash can exchange 500 Pot Credits for one ticket into its special Joy Pot game up to a maximum of 72. Competitors can earn two Pot Credits for every ten pounds they wager on bingo while one Pot Credit awaits every player that has spent £50 on its instant games. In addition, one Pot Credit will be awarded for winning on the site’s number 25 pattern game with five Pot Credits for those that get lucky on its pot of gold pattern game.
As if this weren’t enough, PoshBingo.co.uk declared that players can earn an additional 20 Pot Credits per account by e-mailing ILove@JoyOfBingo.com and telling it what they would put in their joy pot if they had one.
“When people talk about starting the New Year fresh, we talk about starting the New Year rich,” read a statement from PoshBingo.co.uk.
“On the January 1, 2011 at 10pm you could be our £30,000 Joy Pot winner. It is a 90-ball game, which means three lucky players will have the chance to win a small fortune.”
