Joy Of Bingo
This bingo network, which is powered by Dragonfish, has several distinctive features:
Widely networked bingo rooms
Joy of Bingo has two bingo rooms which are shared with several other bingo networks (this is possible because they are all covered by the same UK Gambling Commission licence held by 888 UK Ltd).
- Sweet Stack Up – this 90 ball room is shared with many other networks including Ignite, United Bingo and the Dragonfish network (where it is called 90s Extreme). It opens at 7pm with a £1000 fixed jackpot game then stays open until noon the following day.
- The Unwind – this 75 ball room which is open 24/7 isn’t shared quite as widely as the 90 ball room, but not far off (it is called Big Fat 10 on the Dragonfish network). Some Joy Of Bingo sites only offer it on mobile.
Several of the daily jackpot games at Joy Of Bingo, including the Sunday night £10K sliding jackpot, are also shared with the Dragonfish network.
Joy Of Bingo has an impressive 7 free bingo rooms including a newbie room, daily VIP game, rooms for recent depositors and rooms open to all players, but almost all of them are shared with the Dragonfish network.
Redeposit Bonus Games
Joy Of Bingo used to have automatic redeposit bonuses but now, on subsequent deposits of £10 or more players can enter a code to play a bonus game (e.g. spin the wheel) to win bingo tickets, bonus, slot spins or loyalty points. The games vary from site to site but all guarantee a win of some kind.
Joy Gem VIP Club
Joy Of Bingo has a 4 level VIP club which runs across the network, and when a player attains VIP status at one of their sites they automatically do so at all of them. VIP status is by invitation and there is little indication of what players must do to qualify, but this was not always the case. An earlier version of the scheme had just 3 levels and entry to the lowest level required players to deposit and play £2000 or more (on bingo or slots) over a rolling three month period; for the top level it was £5000 or more.
The top level benefits are certainly impressive; they include a personal account manager, VIP event invitations and exclusive VIP chat as well as the upgrade package, VIP only bingo rooms and VIP only promotions on offer to the lower levels.
