Thanks for your reply. Your answer is quite good but a number greater than 8811 is possible for this matchstick puzzle. Check out the other comments for a bigger number.

This is quite big number possible and I had this number in mind while creating this matchstick puzzle. However, one of my friend was able to think outside the box and beat this number :).
