Gamesys Bingo Sites

There are only a few Gamesys bingo sites but they have a huge and loyal player base.  This is no doubt due to the exclusive Gamesys only slots (such as the very popular Double Bubble), the amazing player promotions which include a free daily game and very frequent prize draws and the very strong community.

Gamesys have finally released a full mobile bingo offering and upgraded their desktop to HTML5 and this is bound to increase their popularity still further.  In early 2018 Gamesys got rid of all wagering requirements from their (still very generous) welcome offers.

Gamesys Bingo Sites


You might think that because there aren’t that many bingo sites powered by Gamesys, they don’t have much market penetration. But you’d be wrong; some of the sites they power are absolutely huge; in 2012, for example, over 4 billion pounds cash was wagered by Gamesys users.

  2. Gamesys sites
  3. What next?

Gamesys history

Gamesys was founded in 2001 by Noel Hayden, and growth has been phenomenal since the launch of Jackpot Joy in 2002. A young and vibrant company, they are known for wacky publicity stunts such as sending a giant rubber ducky down the River Thames.

In early 2015, the sale of Jackpot Joy to giant Canadian company Intertain was announced.  Intertain also own the Ignite group of bingo sites.  It’s unlikely that players will notice any difference as a result of this deal, though, as it involves Gamesys continuing to manage Jackpot Joy for a further 10 years.

Gamesys sites

Which sites run on the Gamesys platform?

Jackpot Joy, Heart Bingo, Virgin Games and Starspins are the UK-facing ones.  Sun Bingo and Fabulous Bingo used to be Gamesys bingo sites but migrated to Virtue Fusion in August 2016 and Caesar’s Bingo  closed in March 2018.  There are also a few sites such as Woman’s Own Bingo that are actually just Jackpot Joy with a different masthead and surround. Gamesys also have a Spanish language and a Swedish language site, and one of New Jersey’s legal online casinos.

What’s special about the Gamesys platform?

  • Gamesys bingo variants such as Crystal Maze Bingo
  • Gamesys powered slots such as Double Bubble and Wonderland that are not available anywhere else (as well as slots by well known names such as WMS, IGT and Net Entertainment)
  • Super Links networked games with substantial prizes, every half hour apart from late night/early morning
  • Distinctive promotions, including frequent prize draws that are limited to one entry per player per day and email photo contests with no spend required
  • Radical welcome offers with no wagering requirements.

What’s not so great?

The main drawback of Gamesys WAS the mobile service – or rather, lack of it – but it is now here and works very well.  The only other minus is that Gamesys bingo rooms are extremely busy and don’t have many features such as everyone-wins or 1TG/2TG, so it could take a long time to win anything there.

What next?

Gamesys was the first company to bring cash gaming to Facebook in the form of Bingo and Slots Friendzy (only available to UK users aged 18+) but this was not a success and the app was closed in May 2014.  Since then they have launched further Facebook apps including a free to play version of the most popular games from Jackpot Joy and the freemium MMO Here Be Monsters which can be played via Facebook or on a standalone site . Social gaming represents a huge market, and it seems that Gamesys are concentrating a large part of their energies there.  As far as mobile bingo goes, the main development first went into the iOS and Android versions of Bingo Lane which is a Facebook social bingo game where you can’t win any real cash, with real money mobile bingo very late to the party (albeit impressive when it arrived).

Gamesys clocked up another first in 2015, bringing legal online 90 ball bingo to US players via the New Jersey licensed Virgin Casino.
