Jackpotjoy and Market-Ace Land Bingo Port Double!

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 2, 2011) - Award winning online Bingo sites are Jackpotjoy's speciality, and yesterday both the site and their affiliate management company, Market-ace, landed two more top awards as major affiliate site Bingo Port awarded them with Best Affiliate Management Team and the coveted Best Side Game for their Deal or No Deal slot...

Online Bingo is an area where affiliate sites are increasingly powerful, and their awards are amongst the most hotly contested in the industry.

This week Bingo Port, one of the UK's largest affiliate sites, ran an awards ceremony that celebrated the best in online gaming and the Market-ace bingo Affiliate network won Affiliate Management Team of the Year, and Jackpotjoy flagship game Deal or No Deal won the highly prized Best Side Game.

Deal or No Deal Slots offers three bonus rounds, each themed around the hit TV show. In one, players are asked to choose a box which will contain an undisclosed sum of money between £1 and the progressive jackpot.

The bonus round is then played in much the same way as the TV show, with a mysterious banker making regular offers in the hope of tempting the box away from the player. After each offer, the player can choose to remove more boxes until only two remain.

The banker makes one more offer which the contestant can take or refuse before they open their own box and win the contents.

Deal or No Deal Slots made headlines back in September 2010 when it awarded a single player over £1.9million in a single progressive jackpot win – which isn't bad for a game you can play while enjoying Bingo on the side!

Alongside winning the Best Side Game award, Jackpotjoy's affiliate management team, Market-ace took the award for Best Affiliate Management Team. Given that the award was being handed over by the management team of the largest Bingo portal anywhere online this is some achievement.

"We're delighted with the award," beams head of Market Ace, David Volovici. "Getting recognition from our industry peers is always an honour, and given Bingo Port's experience and establishment this is all the more important."

Market Ace won the award in recognition of their achievements over the past year which include the development of a promotions calendar which automatically keep affiliates up-to-date with promotions at least one week before the beginning of the month.

"I think what's most exciting about this award though," David explains, "is that the best is still to come. We're currently working on a Desk Top Alert tool which will send real time updates, winning stories and more directly to our affiliates. The future is most definitely bright!"

Alongside David, Market Ace boasts the brother/sister team of Claire and Paul Archer, who boast over a decade of affiliate marketing experience between them.


The Gamesys Group was founded by Noel Hayden in April 2001 with a small team of developers. The aim was to build a profitable online entertainment business providing online bingo sites, scratch cards and online slots to a worldwide audience using proprietary gaming software.

After eight years, the Group's leading brand, http://www.jackpotjoy.com, has built an audience of over 3,000,000 members and pays out in excess of GBP 90 million every month. The success of Jackpotjoy.com has established the Gamesys Group as one of the UK's leading online gaming businesses. In 2006 they were named No. 1 in the Microsoft/Sunday Times Tech Track 100 League Table, and they're now one of only four companies to have appeared on the list four years in a row. This feat reflects both the company's capacity for sustained growth and its remarkable resilience during periods of financial instability.
