Jackpotjoy was the first online bingo site to introduce a pay to play site to Facebook following relaxation of the rules relating to real money gaming. Bingo Friendzy was the game and it was very innovative and ticked all the boxes of what Facebook bingo fans are fond of. It had extra winnings for players with friends in the game, it had cute, furry creatures as the bingo 'balls', it had extra chances to win at the end of every game.
Despite an ever increasing number of Facebook 'likes' – currently standing at 8,800 – the actual player numbers have struggled to reach even 100 at the peak time. That peak time has been between 9pm and 10pm when the total game prize money has been set at £100. That means just over £54 for the full house and that is the best the prize money has ever reached – except when a lucky player scoops the progressive jackpot by calling house in 40 number or less.
In a move that has not gone down well with those faithful to the Bingo Friendzy game Candy Cave on Facebook, Jackpotjoy have today added that room to the main Jackpotjoy online bingo site. The Facebook players, many of whom have played in Candy Cave since day one, regardless of the prize money, are distraught that their little world is now networked and that it will no longer be just a member of the Bingo Friendzy community that scoops the winnings.
Another reason for the discontent is that the ticket prices have doubled in price from 5p to 10p, meaning that maximum tickets now costs £6 instead of the previous £3.
On the other hand, players on the main Jackpotjoy bingo site are absolutely loving the game with all its little additional features and the player numbers are the best ever seen during the day and are bound to get better into the evening. It remains to be seen if the £100 evening session remains in place, but this prize could be greater if more and more people join the room.
It could be that Jackpotjoy was the first pay to play bingo site added to Facebook, but if its unhappy players walk away it could also be the first to close.
