Jackpotjoy Bingo – Claire & Carolyn’s Verdict:

Jackpotjoy Bingo review

jackpotjoy bingo review   banner

Jackpotjoy is not a name you’ll come across in the bricks ‘n’ mortar world of real-world Bingo halls, but when it comes to UK online Bingo it’s definitely one of the big dogs. Jackpotjoy has built an enviable brand in a relatively short space of time, and with it a large and loyal following amongst the UK online Bingo community. It now can boast one of the UK’s biggest congregations of Bingo disciples – it claims nearly two million Great British players, and who are we to argue? – and has garnered several top industry awards for its entertainment. Jackpotjoy Bingo’s clearly doing something right!

Jackpotjoy Online Bingo is operated by Gamesys, a company based in the UK and regulated in Malta, (a highly reputable and rigorous licensing authority in case you’re asking) which, since its founding in 2001, has created a superb, distinctive set of online entertainment sites that has won it great critical and commercial success. This kind of continuing success is very good evidence that Jackpotjoy can be trusted to deliver secure money transactions, effective customer service and crowd-pleasing online Bingo gaming. But would we recommend you just follow the crowd? It’s time we went for a Joy ride…

Jackpotjoy BingoPlaying online Bingo is just the tip of the entertainment iceberg at Jackpotjoy’s bright and breezy website, and on arrival at the homepage you’re greeted with a slightly overwhelming choice of casino, slots and instant win games beyond Bingo to tempt your inner slot jockey or baize bandit out to play. Momentarily distracted by the possibilities of taking on The Banker in Jackpotjoy’s online version of the ever-popular TV gameshow ‘Deal or No Deal’ (sadly there’s no virtual Noel Edmonds to marshal proceedings here – although this might be ‘a good thing’ depending on your affection for the beardy, cosmic-ordering presenter!) we set our controls for the heart of the Bingo to see what’s what.

Getting membership to play at Jackpotjoy is nice and straightforward with only a little, light online form-filling required and no credit/debit card details need to be given at this stage if you’re just curious to explore Jackpotjoy’s world a little further before playing for real money. What we didn’t find straightforward was actually trying to locate the ‘Join Now’ link to get to the sign-up form! Perhaps we were distracted by the banners for the progressive games with their mounting jackpot displays or the list of ‘Big Winners’, but it genuinely took us a few moments to track down the link on Jackpotjoy’s rather busy homepage! Admittedly it’s a small point and we’re not going to make a ‘big thing’ out of this, but it could be helpful to newbies if Jackpotjoy did.

Putting the ‘shy-and-retiring-link’ issue aside now, how did this site’s online Bingo experience play out? Well true to this hall’s name it is indeed a joy. Jackpotjoy have done an excellent job with its software console through which you choose and play its games – using the ubiquitous Flash software found on most modern computers, it’s pretty quick to load and a snap to use. In the ‘lobby’ area, there’s a choice of one 90 ball and five 75 ball games to pick and a packed schedule of sessions, some of which have ticket prices going as low as 1p! Yes, just 1p! Now that’s exceptionally thrifty Bingo for those of you on a strict Budget. A properly satisfying online Bingo adventure isn’t complete without decent Chat facilities and Jackpotjoy’s nine rooms are nicely integrated into its playing screen. They’re also pretty lively judging by our visits here, with welcoming CMs to make newcomers feel right at home. Another feature integrated into the onscreen games console are minigames to have a flutter on before, after, or indeed during your Bingo sessions. Whilst other online Bingo sites offer similar functions, we liked how these minigames were integrated as part of the main console, rather then opening in a separate pop-up window. Another nice touch in our opinion. There’s an overall slickness to the Jackpotjoy game software that makes it especially user friendly and we rate it one of the best in this online Bingo business. We reserve one criticism though – the awful Jamiroqai-lite funk muzak that plays between sessions. Thankfully Jackpotjoy allow you to switch it off in the game preferences – something we did straight away…

As and when you do decide to play its games for real money, Jackpotjoy continues to live up to its name as the jackpots and progressive jackpots it offers are very pleasing. Factor in the reasonable pricing of its tickets and this is a site where we think you’ll enjoy plenty of online Bingo bang for your buck! New players can also boost their Bingo bankroll by taking advantage of Jackpotjoy’s Welcome Bonus to double their money if they make a first deposit £10 or more in their account, up to a limit of £100. Not bad at all, and just part of a promotions package that, at the time of our review, included unique sessions of FREE Bingo with REAL cash prizes, and lots of chat game rewards.

We were very pleased to see Jackpotjoy has remedied our previous criticism of its UK customer support by now providing a free phone service as well as its email contact, plus we also must praise its very comprehensive, searchable FAQ facility that answered every sensible newbie question we threw at it – clearly asking it daft questions confused it and rightly so! Another change from our last review we’re glad to note is that Jackpotjoy have stopped using annoying pop-up windows on its website – thank you Jackpotjoy, You have our deep appreciation for that small tweak alone!

So, in conclusion, would we recommend playing online Bingo with Jackpotjoy? Deal or no deal? Deal! Absolutely! Its website is perhaps a little busy for our tastes, but this is just the shop window and Gamesys has created a wonderful set of online Bingo games and other gaming treats for Jackpotjoy’s members. Add the vibrant chat rooms, thrifty minimum ticket prices and regularly refreshed promotions to this mix, and we think you’ll find there’s very good reasons to be jumping for (Jackpot)joy.
