Jackpot Madness Wins 2005 GOM Award - Wednesday 14th of December 2005

CURACAO Jackpot Madness has been awarded the 2005 Gambling Online Magazine (GOM) award for "Best Progressive Site" of the year. The annual GOM Awards are determined by readers, and are widely considered to be the most coveted awards in the online casino industry, Jackpot Madness officials said.

Commenting on the GOM Award, spokesperson for Jackpot Madness, Francine Haliva said, "The receipt of this award is especially important as it is a people's choice award. The players and editors have spoken and Jackpot Madness has come out on top! The Jackpot Madness portal was designed with the player in mind. In consideration of the multinational nature of our players and in recognition of their diverse needs, multiple language and currency options were introduced in 2004. It is especially rewarding when it is the players themselves who acknowledge our efforts as expressed by this award."

With links to over 85 first-rate casinos, Jackpot Madness is recognized throughout the industry as the largest online progressive network. The GOM award confirms this recognition. With 14 different progressive games offered via the network of Microgaming casinos, Jackpot Madness is the world's largest online progressive network. This year alone, Jackpot Madness paid out over $35 million to over 950 jackpot winners, including two winners that became instant millionaires. To date, over $181,000,000 has been paid out, each in one lump cash sum.

Haliva continued, "All the progressive games are highly acclaimed and continue to attract the lion's share of the online casino industry. The GOM award further confirms this recognition. Jackpot Madness offers the widest variety of progressive jackpot games, including 3-reel and 5-reel slots, blackjack, roulette, and video poker games. Each progressive jackpot constantly grows until it is won, allowing for large cash jackpots at a relatively low cost per play.
