LONDON, November 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Setting the tone for an exciting promotion that started on October 29th, the jackpot was won on November 1st on Playtech bingo's hugely popular Bouncy Balls slot with Playtech licensee Mecca Bingo.  At the time of the win, Bouncy Balls had the biggest jackpot on the network.

Through December 10th, the network slots promotion will give away over £1m in prize money with Playtech's bingo licensees distributing prizes from £10 to £50,000 through 11 selected slot games with progressive jackpots.  During this six week period, players can qualify for prize draws simply by playing on the promoted slot and with two prize draws a week, there are plenty of chances to win.  The network is guaranteeing giving away over 35,000 individual prizes.

Playtech's bingo network is the world's largest online bingo network with over 25 licensees operating major bingo brands such as Mecca Bingo, William Hill Bingo, Ladbrokes Bingo, Sky Bingo, Paddy Power Bingo, Maria Bingo, bet365 Bingo and many more.  

Andrew Steddy, Head of Bingo Networks, said "Following the phenomenal success of the network slots promotion we ran earlier this year, it was only a matter of time before we repeated it. Given the unique structure of our network, we're able to comfortably deliver self funding promotions like this with no additional costs for our licensees. To not only give away £1m in prizes, but to create yet another millionaire, just as we did in June, proves once again that Playtech's Virtuefusion platform is the place to play."
