What Is A Box Bonanza Game

Article Updated On 10th November 2019

Regular visitors to Jackpotjoy, Virgin Games, Heart Bingo and Star Spins will have noticed some changes with regards their promotions. Cashback offers and bonuses have been replaced with Box Bonanza games. For example, currently at Jackpotjoy you can win up to 10 in the Slot Extravaganza promotion whilst there's a similar offer at Heart called Cash Spinner.


In the Slot Extravaganza promo at Jackpotjoy any player who wagers 10 on the new Wolf Cub slot between the 26th and 29th November may be awarded a Box Bonanza game. The game is activated within 24 hours. When loaded, the player is presented with three boxes and their task is to select one. The box is then opened to hopefully reveal a prize up to the value of 10 (or more depending on the promo).

The prize is paid out as cash and therefore comes with no wagering terms. This means that the money can be withdrawn provided the player has met previous wagering conditions. It's the no wagering element that makes the Box Bonanza offer slightly better than previous promos where you could get cashback bonuses or win a share of a bonus pot.

Goodbye Bonus Money

As we've mentioned a few times, The UK Government has recently extended taxation laws on gambling bonuses. This means it costs operators more to pay out bonus money. However, it's our understanding, that they can pay out cash prizes without incurring this bonus tax.

The only thing that is a little unclear to us is whether everyone qualifies for a Box Bonanza and whether there's a cash prize under each box. Looking at the Heart promo though we did discover that only 500 players would get a Box Bonanza game but with Jackpotjoy's there was no indication of a fixed number.

Whilst the Box Bonanzas may not be popular with players who have enjoyed previous promos - we did see some dissent in the chatrooms recently - unfortunately business conditions dictate that bonuses are slowly being eradicated by many operators. We think Jackpotjoy and co have come up with a decent alternative to cashback bonuses and pot shares.
