Jackpotjoy Review

Rating: 4.8/5

Rating: 4.8/5

JackpotJoy is a venerable, award winning site offering a great selection of bingo games, slots and instants from Gamesys, together with a never-ending series of excellent promotions.


Jackpotjoy has been around for an astonishing 20 years and is a bit of a national institution.  The earliest versions of the site bear little resemblance to the clean, mobile friendly layout of today.  Far from resting on their laurels, the operator is constantly adding new games and promotions.

Jackpotjoy offers an impressive range of slots and scratchcards from Gamesys and other providers, plus live casino and poker.  At first glance, you might think that the site is really more about the slot and casino games than about the bingo – especially as it doesn’t even have the word bingo in its name!   The truth is, though, that Jackpotjoy has the biggest selection of bingo rooms of any Gamesys site.  At the time of writing (December 2023) these include:

  • Session Bingo 4 times a day
  • Sapphire Bingo – the main 90 ball room with PowerBolts jackpots that drop every day
  • Bubble Up Bingo – a 90 ball room with double prizes for winning on double numbers (e.g.33)
  • Joy Bingo – a 90 ball room with a multiplier feature
  • Bingo 80 – with a retro theme
  • Speed Bingo
  • Cloud Bingo – a weekly game with a prize pool of £1000 and a ticket price of 1p
  • Snap Bingo – a playing card based bingo game
  • SuperLinks – these games play at intervals throughout the day and link many bingo rooms at many Gamesys sites together.  The prize money is substantial.
  • Tiki, a penny bingo room
  • Play Off Palace – daily and weekly free bingo games for players who have won eligible bingo games earlier in the day or week
  • Several other 75 and 90 ball rooms

The bingo games at Gamesys have a Return To Player of around 80-85% and this is considerably better than on most other bingo platforms.

Bingo tickets can be purchased for the next game or from the schedule up to 24 hours in advance.

All of these bingo rooms have minigames and chat; some are not hosted but it’s easy enough to browse all the chat channels and switch to a livelier channel with one of the lovely chat hosts without leaving the bingo room you are in.  Gamesys also have the very busy Community chat room which appears when you play a free daily game or slot game, and can be switched to from any bingo room.  As for chat games, the ones at Gamesys are really something else; video streams and/or interactive mini games such as Blox appear in a window in the chat panel.

A few years, Jackpotjoy (along with other Gamesys sites) switched to a welcome offer where the only wagering requirement is the need to deposit and spend £10 in order to qualify in the first place.  The offer proved so popular that it has been in place ever since.  The free bingo tickets can be used in most bingo rooms but as they have no specified value, theoretically the best value comes from redeeming them against £1 bingo tickets for a total of £50 worth of tickets. You might prefer, however, to redeem them against tickets with a lower face value but where there are fewer players so you have a better chance of winning.

Jackpotjoy also scores really well for player promotions.  Many follow the tried and tested formula of a prize draw with Box Bonanza games to be won (a Box Bonanza is a pick-me game which almost always awards a cash prize) but from time to time they also have sharepots, stake and get promotions, and prize draws with tangible prizes.  To participate in these, you’ll need to be invited.  Everyone has an equal chance of winning in most Gamesys prize draws as they are restricted to one entry per player.  Another signature promotion is the choice of 4 daily free games; these are designed to be played every day for a week and you collect sets of symbols to win free spins or cash.

Other products available to play at Jackpotjoy include poker, scratchcards and live casino and the slots area includes Gamesys originals like Double Bubble and Tiki Island as well as the usual suspects.

The site works well across all devices and there’s Android and iOS apps for added safety and convenience when playing on mobile.

The only arguably weak area at Jackpotjoy is that of payment methods; they accept debit cards only.

Apart from that, and for sheer entertainment value, it’s hard to beat Jackpotjoy – no wonder the site has remained so successful for so long!
