Jackpotjoy makes us happy to be bingo players —a site lets members place small stakes, without eliminating the chance to win big: the best of both worlds.
You can withdraw a minimum of £10 at any time, using the same method that you last used to place a deposit. It can take up to 24 hours for Jackpotjoy to process the withdrawal, and any further clearance times will be dependant on method itself, but should not exceed a further 5 working days (except in the case of cheques, will could take up to 10).
Jackpotjoy has a wealth of games on site, and many of them —naturally— play on the ‘Bejeweled’ theme. Members also get the chance to trial many of them for free, with ‘Demo Mode’; helping you choose exactly which to deposit on before committing any funds.
One of the most popular bingo games on site is the dazzling Bejeweled Bingo.
Purchase tickets at the bottom of the page; qualify for the bonus games (the Bejeweled Challenge) by buying at least 6. This bonus game is a race against time, as players battle against their own —and others— scores to win tickets for the next game.
And, as though that wasn’t exciting enough, there’s also a progressive jackpot! Call bingo within 38 calls, and the total’s yours.
This game is your standard 90-ball bingo, with a sovereign twist.
When the Queen of Bingo resides in her palace, there are more chances to get lucky. Her Royal Pardon means more balls will be released —listen out for the number of times her Royal dogs bark, to see how many it will be this time!
Any winner who has relied on these extra calls is eligible for a portion of the Royal Pardon Jackpot! Not a prize to be royally sniffed at.
There’s also the super jackpot, especially for any player who bingos within 36 calls —even more chances to win big!
Select the coins you wish to play with (from 20p right up to £200). Gems will fall; players are rewarded for clusters of 6+ matching jewels.
Lightning Hypercubes help your cause, destroying some gems, but causing more to fall.
It’s all to play for in this game, with chances to win big at every turn.
One of the newer games on site, Monster Cravings, is already proving popular.
The lovable monster Digsby is certainly not on a diet! Get him to eat the goodies, and you might well find a cash prize hidden behind them!
Pick n Play for a pick n mix extravaganza.
Eating 5 winning candies in a row will trigger a Sugar Rush. If this happens, Digsby will get 20 free chances to eat goodies, meaning you will get 20 free chances to win!
Giveaways, quizzes and bonuses: there are always tonnes of offers to be found at Jackpotjoy.
BingoPort loves the separation of Current and Coming Soon promotions —it’s quick and clear to see when each promotion is due to run, helping you make the most of your money.
Refer a Friend
If you’re in love with Jackpotjoy, why not tell others about it? After all, for every eligible referral — which means your friend will have to place a deposit of at least £10, and play a minimum of £40 across site (check out wagering contributions here)— you’ll receive £20! Unlike many other sites, there’s no limit on the amount of invitations you can send out, and your friend will also be able to benefit from the fantastic Welcome Bonus too!
Life just got better with huge prizes to be won in Cloud, Emerald, Tiki, Sapphire, Diamond and Bejeweled Bingo every half hour all day long (well, between 8am and 00.30, so near enough!)
Look out for games with guaranteed prize money, and you could be looking at winning between £250 and £2000!
There are also Community Super Jackpots…with £2.8 million worth of prizes up for grabs each week, is there a better way to bingo than this?
Want the chance to win big in the Playoff Palace? You’re going to need tickets for the game…
Fortunately, you can now win them —and gain access to both the daily and weekly games: those players eligible for one line, two line or Full House prizes on selected games in Sapphire will also receive 6 tickets to each!
The daily games commences at 8.45pm, and the weekly game takes place each Sunday at 9.15pm. Just remember, you can’t play in the Playoff Palace on mobile, so if you do win tickets, be sure you’re ready on another device to claim them.
Across site, performance is generally good. Usability is great: clear, simple and has us, the players, in mind at every step. We also love the ‘Demos’ feature, although be warned that loading times can be a little slow.
The variety and quantity of games are significantly reduced compared to the desktop version. However, there’s plenty still on offer, so this shouldn’t prove too much of a concern for prospective members.
Overall, whilst it’s fair to say that performance is not Jackpotjoy’s biggest selling point, it is by no means weak, with usability of the site more than making up for any shortfalls.
Jackpot offer a great level of guidance, with 24 hour a day access to their support teams, who are contactable on any of the following methods:
From the UK: 0800 458 0770
Outside the UK: +44 20 7287 4431
Chat: live on the website
You can also find additional support and answers to frequently asked questions on the help page.
Shop of Joy
This aptly named feature is Jackpot’s very own loyalty programme. Players can earn Joy Points by playing on site: 1 for every £5 that’s spent on Bingo, or for every £20 that’s spent elsewhere on site.

Jackpot also host a number of group outings throughout the year. Having organised events to The Royal Ascot, Cirque du Soleil and top international rugby games, its VIP service is pretty hard to beat!
This is the Jackpot Community, which offers you more than just games. With characters presenting the best of tips, prizes and bingo gossip, not to mention a great selection of chat games to choose from, there’s something for everyone at Jackpot Extra.
Jackpot are clearly committed to ensuring that their players are playing bingo as it is meant to be played.
They offer a number of tools, guidance and advice, including a number of self-assessment questions —and we’re impressed that these aren’t hidden away, as on some sites, but are all readily available on the ‘Play Responsible’ tab.
Jackpot’s Facebook and Twitter pages are regularly updated to bring you the very latest in brain-teasers, puzzles, giveaways and more! There’s a great level of community interaction, and the pages demonstrate just how close-knit the Jackpotjoy members are!
With lots on offer, and a bedazzling array of promotions and prizes, it’s a solid 4 stars from BingoPort.
