Jackpotjoy is in our opinion one of the best sites for bingo and online slots. Launched back in 2002, the site has developed with their own in house games and fabulous promotions. They were the first site with Deal Or No Deal slots and of course they had The Queen of Bingo played by the fabulous Barbara Windsor!
The Queen Of Bingo has retired and her regal role has now been taken over by Paddy McGuinness. Paddy welcomes players to the site with a welcome offer that was introduced in late 2018. Deposit and play £10 to receive 30 free spins on Doubly Bubbly and £50 of free bingo tickets. Jackpotjoy is a no wagering site and therefore any wins from the tickets or spins are paid in cash.
Back in the day, Jackpotjoy did offer free scratchcards where you could play daily for the chance to win cash prizes. That's in the past now but there are still daily free games - Tiki's Catch of the Day, Paper Win, and Doubly Bubbly. To play you will need to have wagered at least £2 on games in the previous week. The free games give you the chance to win cash prizes or slot spins. The maximum cash prize is currently £750 so do try and login to Jackpotjoy daily! No wagering terms apply.
Jackpotjoy boasts a number of 90 ball and 75 ball bingo rooms. You can play from as little as 1p a ticket in rooms such as Tiki, Emerald and Cloud. There are speciality rooms too including Crystal Maze Bingo, based on the popular TV show, Game Show Bingo and Blox. Other rooms such as Take Me Out Bingo and Snap have sadly closed as they weren't compatible after JPJ movied to a more mobile friendly format.
If you play in the Sapphire Room then keep an eye out for Play Off Palace tickets. If you win a one line, two line or Full House prize on selected games before 7.55pm each day, you will automatically win 6 tickets for the daily game at 8:45pm where you can win up to £200. On top of that you also collect 6 tickets for the weekly game the following Sunday at 9.15pm where there are £1000 prizes.
Slots and games are at the heart of Jackpotjoy! They were the first site to host a Deal Or No Deal slot and they created a few millionaires with their progressive jackpots. They've even had slots for Red Nose Day and Ant & Dec's ill-fated Red Or Black game show! Among the top slots currently at JPJ are Wonderland, Tiki Temple, Winstones, Bullion Bonanza, Tycoons Progressive, Rainbow Riches, Zuma Slots, Houdini and Monopoly Paradise Mansion.
You will find exclusive slots at Jackpotjoy - and other Gamesys powered brands. These games include Queen Of The Tree Folk, Zen Garden, Sapphire Sorceress and Twilight Forest. Many games can be played via mobile, tablet and desktop too - whilst you can trial them in demo mode for free after login. As well as slots you'll also find casino games, video poker, live casino and scratchcards.
Whilst many sites struggle with promotions, that's most certainly not the case with Jackpotjoy. Each month you will find regular competitions, prize draws, tournaments and jackpot games. They're not adverse to big prizes either and in the past they've dished out cars and holidays. Since becoming a no wagering brand JPJ no longer have a JoyPoints loyalty scheme.
Community is at the heart of Jackpotjoy and they're very active on Twitter and Facebook. A number of the regular promos tie in with social media so that does make them worth following. Like many other bingo brands, JPJ host plenty of chat games! Look out for their Chat-O-Vision shows as well - we know they exist but have yet to encounter one.
It's hard to fault Jackpotjoy as a place to play as there's so much to like. The arrival of Paddy McGuinness has given the brand a lift and there's still an excellent selection of slots and bingo. More importantly no wagering terms means that you know where you are when it comes to your account.
Are there any cons to playing at Jackpotjoy? Well we'd like to see more variations on bingo such as a 40 or 50 ball version. It's also hard to gauge exclusives as many rooms are now shared with Heart as well as brands like Chat Magazine, Womans Own and Pick Me Up Bingo. However, these are minor quibbles and most players we believe will enjoy their Jackpotjoy experience.
