|Welcome Offer||On a £10 deposit can choose to receive £50 of free bingo or 30 slot spins.|
|Best way to Deposit||Debit card|
When you hit the deposit button for the first time at JackpotJoy you have a choice to make. Do you wish to take advantage of the £50 worth of free bingo tickets or take 30 free spins on Double Bubble with your initial deposit and spend of £10?
The 50 free bingo tickets are applicable on any bingo game with the exception of Session Bingo and Playoff Palace. It is worth noting that they have a maximum value of £50 (if spent on a £1 game) but just 50p if you opt for penny games. If you opt for the 30 free spins you should be aware that these can only be used on the Double Bubble game.
There are no wagering requirements on the bonus awarded on your first deposit and any winnings from the bingo tickets or free spins are credited to your real cash account. This means that they are available for withdrawal.
There are some limitations to the welcome offer though, but nothing that we wouldn’t expect to see. Free bingo tickets or free spins are only available for 30 days from the day you opt-in by choosing which offer you would like and making your first deposit with Jackpotjoy.

A visit to the promotions page at Jackpotjoy revealed quite an array of special deals and offers. Some of these were quite time-limited but there were plenty of ongoing offers to choose from.
- Daily free game – if you have made a minimum deposit of £10 with the site then you can enjoy one of four daily free games.
- Progressive Jackpots – check out the main bingo lobby for which rooms have a progressive jackpot available.
- Bingo Chat – you can win bonuses by participating in the chat games that are hosted by the site.
The promotions page is worth a regular visit because it updates regularly.
Bonus codes are not a staple part of what JackpotJoy has to offer because, from what we have seen, this site looks after its players with a multitude of special promotions and offers. However, it could be worth registering to receive marketing material from the site because it may be that they offer bonus codes as one-off deals through email or SMS.
Operated by Gamesys, Jackpotjoy is able to offer players a huge array of games. These are both in-house and others from well-known developers in the online gaming industry. You have the option to play bingo, slots, casino, poker, instant wins, and live games – the choice is yours, depending on what you are looking for from your time at the site.
For bingo, you have a choice of many different rooms, 16 at the time of this review. In these rooms you will find three bingo variants; 75, 80, and 90 ball bingo. In addition to the standard games, you will find a selection that offer an array of extra features. An example of this would be Bingo Royale. This room has a bonus feature of five extra balls after a full house winner has been found which means five more chances to be a winner!
With bingo available 24/7, it doesn’t matter if you are a night owl or an early bird – you’ll find a game to suit you at this bingo site. Some of the rooms feature progressive jackpots and from the main lobby, this is indicated by a PJ. Other information available about each room includes the number of players, ticket cost, and time until the next game.

There have been so many Jackpotjoy TV adverts over the years, and many featuring A-list celebrities. At the time of the review (February 2020), it was Paddy McGuinness who was the brand ambassador. He took over the role from Barbara Windsor, The Queen of Bingo, back in 2017.
Although there have been other commercials since the one we have listed here, the handover between the two giants of television has been one of our all-time favourite online bingo TV adverts.
There’s only really one star-rating that Jackpotjoy could receive and that’s top marks – an impressive 5! From great advertising to one of the best online gaming experiences from start to finish, we couldn’t find fault with what this particular bingo brand had to offer. There’s such a great choice of games; so much more than just bingo, and so many exclusive promotions and games that you’re never going to find yourself getting bored playing here.
