Jackpotjoy Review

Jackpotjoy Bingo

Jackpotjoy is a unique online bingo and casino platform. Launched in 2002 by a group of enthusiasts, nowadays it is close to 260 thousand Average Active Customers per Month. Owned by the shark of the gaming industry in the UK, Gamesys Group, Jackpotjoy makes out ⅓ of the UK online bingo market.

Jackpotjoy™ is under the operation of Profitable Play Limited, licensed and regulated by the Gambling Commission in the UK and Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.

Official bingo website jackpotjoy.com is available for UK and Ireland customers only while customers from Sweden may get access to their favorite bingo website at jackpotjoy.se that is operated by Dumarca Gaming Ltd.

User Interface

Once you enter the Jackpotjoy official website, you see that it is quite user-friendly and have a pleasant visual in a sky-blue toned background. The main page contains clear steps that make it easy for you to start playing and comprehensive Welcome Offer Rules when you scroll down a little. So it makes T&Cs easy to be found which is quite rare for gambling websites. Simple road maps and convenient navigation are quite appealing, especially for newcomers.

Bonus

For the new customers, Jackpotjoy offers a welcome bonus of up to £50 or 30 Free Spins. But what is more important free perks are not limited to a one-time sign-up offer. Registered customers can participate in daily free games (Daily Paper, Tiki’s Catch of the Day and Double bubble) and in ongoing promotions.

Welcome Offer

Currently, Jackpotjoy offers £50 of free bingo tickets or 30 free spins on your choice after you sign up, deposit and wager £10. Opt-in is required and the offer is valid for 30 days which is quite fair (some casinos give you as little as 7 days). But let’s get into details, and find out what to choose and whether it is possible to win money on Jackpotjoy and how you can do it.

Jackpotjoy 50 Free Bingo tickets (proudly announced as £50 Free Bingo) can have a value of 1p to £1 each and your maximum welcome bonus can be up to £50 of free bingo with average RTP 80-85% while the minimal welcome bonus is 50p (if you buy 50 tickets each worth 1p). However, you won’t easily find a bingo with £1 ticket value to use your free tickets:

According to what you can see, it’s possible to get .15 and .25 tickets. Not as generous as announced but still a 125% welcome bonus! Note that .25 games do host a lot of players that decreases your win chance.

Jackpotjoy 30 Free Spins are available only for Double Bubble Slot Machine.

Double Bubble is a slot developed by Gamesys. Free spins have 20 pay lines. Coin size 1p to £10 and RTP is 95,53% Max win is 20,000x coin size. Using simple mathematics, you get £6 welcome bonus (1p coin x 20 pay lines x 30 free spins = 600p.)

So what welcome offer to choose? It’s obvious that Bingo lovers will definitely take Bingo Tickets and Video slots fans will take Free Spins. Also, it’s obvious that £12,5 > £6. But there’s another moment you should keep in your mind: 25p games always have lots of players that dramatically decreases your win chance and together with lower RTP (about 81% for bingo compared to 95% for Double Bubble). Bingo free tickets may give you zero payout even with a higher bonus amount. But if you’re a risk-lover, we definitely recommend you to take Bingo Tickets at Jackpotjoy.

Free Games

Another great feature is the Jackpotjoy Free Games. Those games include Double Bubble, Tiki’s Catch of the day and Daily Paper Slots. The free game is available daily and requires minimum wagering of £2 during the previous week. You can win decent cash prizes with free spins.

Promotions

Promos at JPJ are constantly changing and you can always find it at JPJ Promo page, but there’s one, that is worth mentioning: Refer a Friend offer. You can get up to £100 if you refer 5 new members to JPJ and they deposit at least £10 and wager £40. Check full T&Cs

Games and Providers

All games at Jackpotjoy are divided into 4 sections: Bingo, Slots, and casino games.

Bingo at Jackpotjoy is represented by 16 games, all developed by Gamesys. It includes classic 90-ball bingo as well as 75 and 80 balls. Most of the games are played every 5 minutes and have tickets from 1 to 25p. But there’s a great feature awards you with free bingo tickets and that’s Play Off Palace (PP). Sapphire Palace has both daily and weekly free games that allow you to win up to 72 Free Bingo tickets. Simply take your dabber and enjoy your favorite game.

Casino Games at JPJ include both RNG and Live Dealer games. Here you can find extremely popular Deal or No Deal, Dream Catcher and Lightning Roulette by Evolution Gaming along with Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat Poker, Craps and Keno games. Instant Games at Jackpotjoy are all provided by Gamesys. You can play your favorite tv shows themed scratchcards: The Crystal Maze, Deal or no Deal as well as Chasin’ Rainbow, Blox Blitz, etc.

The top slots section is occupied by Gamesys Double Bubble, Tiki Island, Paper Wins, and Rainbow Riches. We have no idea are those slots really that popular or they are at the top because of the provider. However, at Jackpotjoy, you can find numerous slots with high RTP that should decrease your losses in a long run.
