There is much to like about playing at Jackpotjoy, but the best things without doubt are the variety of unique games, the great promotions and the low withdrawal and wagering requirements compared to other sites. You will also find the friendliest bunch of UK based chat hosts you would ever hope to meet.
It is a brand you are likely to be very familiar with thanks to its prolific TV advertising. This featured Barbara Windsor as the Queen of Bingo from 2010 to 2017, at which point she handed over her crown to Paddy McGuinness.
While it has been around a long time, Jackpotjoy does like to keep up with the times. While trying to keep things familiar for players they moved to the HTML5 platform in September 2017 and the site became cleaner and crisper than ever.
If you only play on desktop/laptop you will also continue to see enhancements - the latest of which took place in September 2017. This saw the site take on the look of the mobile site and the bingo rooms now operate in the same way too.
The mobile site is growing all the time and while it was introduced with a lot less bingo rooms on the mobile site compared to the main site, being 90 ball Sapphire and 75 ball Bingo Lounge and Round the Clock Bingo, the range was gradually increased to bring in all the rooms, most of the slots, casino games and the other instant games too.
Innovation is the name of the game at Jackpotjoy and this has been found in spades in the past with such rooms such as Gameshow Bingo, Bejewelled Bingo and Take Me Out Bingo where you play an extra bonus game to earn free tickets into the next game as long as you buy 6 tickets yourself. However, as of the change to the HTML5 layout in September 2017 these games have temporarily been removed - we can only guess that the additional features make them difficult to migrate to the new platform.

Jackpotjoy also had several unique bingo games including Bingo Royale, Take Me Out Bingo and the 2014 Bingo Game of the Year winner: Game Show Bingo, but in September 2017 these are no longer showing following the move to the HTML5 platform. We understand some or all of them may return in the coming months.
Bingo Royale re-opened in January 2018, but the Queen of Bingo was nowhere to be seen. Instead we had a snooty butler and a corgi dog in charge, by the names of

Jackpotjoy are constantly updating their site with new and interesting promotions. Players need to opt in to take part in many of the giveaways so be sure to do this before starting to play.
Royal Merchandise - When Paddy McGuinness became the Royal Ruler at Jackpotjoy in mid-2017 he brought with him a whole bunch for 'Royal Bolton' merchandise. The giveaways started with a dinner plate with a picture of the new monarch and as the year came to an end players and fans were looking forward to receiving spoons and oven mitts with his likeness all over them. It's great when things like this happen as it shows that a brand is committed to the campaign and want to make it fun and engaging. No purchase necessary to get hold of these items, you just have to apply for them via special links.
Super Links - promotion whereby there are £20,000 in guaranteed jackpots every day. Play in Cloud, Emerald, Tiki, Sapphire, Diamond or Bejeweled Bingo between 8am and 12.30am to try for between £250 and £2,000 in prize money every half an hour.
Chat-O-Vision is a super new interactive feature at Jackpotjoy. Real hosts from the site put themselves in front of the camera for fun and games with players in real time. Get all the info in our special Chat-O-Vision feature. (Chat-o-Vision is temporarily unavailable from September 2017 following the move to the new site layout. We understand that it will make a return in the not too distant future.).
Visit Jackpotjoy and click on the promotions tab for more details of these and many more giveaways and to opt in to take part as necessary.
All promotions will come with specific terms and conditions so be sure to check at the site before taking part.
Facebook: Jackpotjoy is one of the most active sites on social media, with its Facebook presence leading the way. Over 124,000 like the page and it has 116,000 followers. The reason for this is simple - the page is actively managed and is updated a few times a day. Often it will be with a little quiz or some other giveaway, sometimes just a reminder for a game coming up or for some TV gossip. It also acts as an alterntive way to contact the site.
Twitter: 10,000 followers can't be wrong and would have been among the first to know when Paddy McGuinness became the new Jackpotjoy Royal Ruler. Never miss an important piece of news, contact them with any concerns and take part in the great promotions - although they are usually the same ones you will find on Facebook.
Jackpotjoy on mobile and tablet
Jackpotjoy can also be accessed via mobile, offering all be best bingo games and an excellent range of slots including Double Bubble, Monopoly City Spins and Magic Castle. Jackpotjoy also has a great selection of live and classic casino games. All the games are fully optimised for mobile play.
Players can either log into Jackpotjoy in the mobile browser of their mobile phone or tablet device, or download the App for iPhone or iPad, which makes it even easier to log in and play anytime, anywhere.
The layout of the mobile version of the site is not overly complicated, nearly everything is accessible though the main page, such as - offers, bingo games, slot and casino games.
The menu is located at the top left of the screen and contents all the other sections of the site, such as My Account and Promotions.
Overall the site is great on mobile, it runs really quickly. It’s a shame you can’t access the Heart radio show through the Heart Bingo on mobile.
iOS App Store - There is a Jackpotjoy iOS app to download. It’s layout and experience is identical to its mobile browser version.
Google Play - Jackpotjoy was among the first sites to take advantage of being able to list in the Play Store. The app is easy to install and easy to navigate and as of September 2017 the desktop site closely matches the mobile version.
