New Player Offer: 250% Bonus
Gamesys wagering terms and conditions will apply
Jackpotjoy is in our opinion one of the best sites for bingo and online games. Launched back in 2002, the site has developed with their own in house games, fabulous promotions, Deal Or No Deal slots and of course The Queen of Bingo played by the fabulous Barbara Windsor!
The welcome offer for new players has hardly changed. Newbies are welcomed to Jackpotjoy with a 250% deposit bonus up to a maximum bonus of £250. In easier terms, deposit £10 and have £35 to play. Wagering terms do apply and for Jackpotjoy this is set at x4 the welcome bonus. As ever we do advise that you check out the conditions for yourself! Deposits can be made via Paypal, Paysafecard, Neteller and the usual debit/credit options.
Back in the day, Jackpotjoy did offer free scratchcards. Loquax hosted one of these games and each day you could play for the chance to win a cash prize. That's in the past now but there are daily free games in the shape of Tiki's Catch of the Day, Paper Win, Show Us Your Balls and Doubly Bubbly.
These games are free once you've deposited and wagered £10. However note that to play Show Us Your Balls you will need to have played 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 visit daily!
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 Take Me Out Bingo, based on the popular TV show, Game Show Bingo, Snap and Bejeweled Bingo. On the last Friday of every month JPJ hosts a £13,000 jackpot game and this typically costs 50p a card to play.
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 root 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. As well as slots you'll also find casino games, video poker, live casino and scratchcards.
Promotions & Community
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. All players can also earn Joy Points when they play, although this has lost it's appeal over the years. Nowadays you only get 1 point for every £5 wagered on bingo or £20 wagered on slots. These points can be converted to bonuses or used for prize draw entries.
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 lobby however can be a bit clunky and the main site could do with an update. The Queen Of Bingo has been a good servant to JPJ too but we can't help wondering whether it's time for a change? Overall though this is one of our favourite sites - and we think it could be yours too.
