It is stretching things a bit to call Jackpotjoy a network. Other sites do indeed use a similar version of their Gamesys software. Caesars Bingo and Sun Bingo have a familiar feel to them if you are a regular Jackpotjoy player, so they are clearly related in some way. I guess the definition of network in online bingo is pretty undefined anyway.
What we can say for sure is that Jackpotjoy Bingo is bigger than many whole networks in any case. This is thanks to their widely seen TV advertising, featuring the great British acting legend that is Barbara Windsor. Whether you are old (like me) or young (like you), everyone loves Barbara. From the buxom blonde in Carry On, to the publican matriarch in Eastenders, every generation has their version of this lovable cockney in their heritage. From the Queen Vic to the Queen of Bingo. TV advertising may be expensive, but that is because it works. Jackpotjoy may be a standalone site, but it is now one of the biggest brands in bingo. Who needs a proper “network” when you’re that popular?
Traditional 90 and 75 ball bingo formats are offered. Note that the “speed” bingo on offer is not the usual understanding of the word – it’s a version of 75 ball bingo played faster! But it’s all very professionally done. Gamesys may not be the biggest name in bingo software, but what they provide is excellent. This site is attractively designed and very smooth, as good as any around today. All that television exposure brings with it thousands of players, so the chat rooms are always full of eager bingo fans. And more players mean bigger prizes and mouth-watering jackpots. This site certainly lives up to its name. There are plenty of alternative instant games too. So although Barbara herself may not be there (apart from a suitably regal appearance on the home page that is), there is more than enough entertainment to keep the most demanding player happy on Jackpotjoy.
Payment facilities are extensive too. You can use all the usual credit and debit options, such as Visa, MasterCard and Delta. There are loads of alternative e-payment methods available too, such as Neteller and PayPal. Wagering requirements are very generous by industry standards as well, being set at just 2 x your deposit + bonus. This means that if you were to deposit £10 and receive an introductory bonus of £20, you would only need to spend £60 in real funds before making your first withdrawal. Remember that this only applies to bingo, so if you are playing other games such as slots or scratch cards, requirements are higher. Jackpotjoy is licensed and registered in Gibraltar, so it is covered by the UK Gambling Commission. This means it is considered safe to play in the United Kingdom.
So whether you regard Jackpotjoy as a network or a standalone site, what you can be sure of is a great bingo experience, with lots of fellow players to enjoy it with. Cor Blimey. Get your Ayrton Senna at the ready and ‘ave a laugh!
