Our Review of JackpotJoy
JackpotJoy has been spreading … erm … jackpotjoy for some time now; since 2012, in fact. This virtually complete online wagering site has a heavy emphasis on bingo which might put off a few players, but it has a pleasing range of online slots and casino games too. The only thing that’s missing is sports betting!
One thing that is not missing is celebrity endorsement as championing this site is comic, actor and game show host Paddy McGuinness. Mr McGuinness first rose to fame as a bouncer in Peter Kay’s ‘Phoenix Nights’ sitcom, but now is a legend as the host of TV dating show ‘Take Me Out’. Paddy is famed for his catchphrases so in true Paddy style we are going to say “Let the reader see the review” and get cracking …
JackpotJoy first became established in the Olympic year of 2012. The bingo side of this site began as long ago as 2006. It was a venture by Profitable Play in Gibraltar and quickly became established as a leader in online casino games with the emphasis on mobile play. It soon became Profitable Play’s flagship asset and was sold to Gamesys in 2007. This company helped launched the casino side of things in 2012, but bingo remained the site’s primary focus.
In 2015 the part of Gamesys that operated JackpotJoy, as well as other parts, was sold to Canadian company Intertain. Profitable Play, through Gamesys and subsequently through Intertain still maintains the JackpotJoy site, though.
Style and Feel of Site
It appears that JackpotJoy does not like to complicate things. This is a pleasing-looking, minimalist site which is both easy to use and easy to find your way around. The menu along the top just has three options which are Online Bingo, Slots and Casino. Under the bonus details and a welcome message, you’ll find a tight selection of thumbnails that will lead you to those very same options. Each just has a sample game so you will need to navigate through the tabs to find a broader selection of entertainment.
Each separate section is just as easy to use and is very slickly presented. You never get engulfed by thumbnails and pop-ups, and the bonus information has to be searched for which is good news as most other sites tend to scream at you about their latest promos.
Jackpot Joy has its own VIP team who constantly scan accounts to work out which players deserve the award of VIP status. If you are thinking about applying for VIP status here, then don’t bother as the VIP scheme is by invitation only.
VIPs can expect some extra-special bonuses such as a dedicated VIP account management team, chances to get rewards plus promos on your birthday, your joining anniversary and at Christmas.
Mobile & Tablet Review of JackpotJoy
At some sites you experience no joy if you want to go mobile, but that is definitely not the case at JackpotJoy. This site is another that uses the software skills of HTML5 developers who have created a site which works on mobile devices as well as on desktop computers and laptops. The ‘big and friendly’ site design looks just as good on smartphones and tablets as it does other devices.
The mobile site has 75-ball bingo, 90-ball bingo, slots, RNG casino games and live casinos games from countless top providers such as NetEnt, EyeCon and WMS. The only disappointment perhaps is the lack of casino games for those people who don’t like live casino games.
The mobile site has the full functionality of the desktop site including cashier options and help facilities.
Games & Software Available at JackpotJoy
The bingo options here have been created by Gamesys and extend as far as both 75-ball bingo and 90-ball bingo. There are plenty of bingo rooms and there’s bingo action kicking off every few minutes or so.
The slots have been provided by many tasty vendors, including NetEnt, WMS, IGT, High5 Games, Eyecon and again, Gamesys. You’ll see classic slots such as Starburst and Twin $pin rubbing shoulders with newer games like Agatha Christie’s Mystery Wilds and Secrets of the Phoenix.
Casino games here are from NetEnt and IGT and you’ll be able to play roulette, blackjack, baccarat, hi-lo, casino poker, craps, pai gow poker, keno and video poker. There’s also the live casino which uses software provided by Evolution Gaming to bring you roulette, baccarat and blackjack, among others.
Deposits & Withdrawals at JackpotJoy
Deposits can be made using a valid credit or debit card or by using your PayPal or Neteller account or by purchasing a Paysafecard voucher. It’s best to use a credit/debit card for your first deposit as that will help JackpotJoy validate your account. The minimum accepted deposit is £10.
You can withdraw to a card or PayPal, or via a direct bank transfer. The minimum accepted withdrawal is £10, and you cannot withdraw more than £25,000 per transaction unless you are transferring directly to your bank account.
JackpotJoy says that it usually takes them around 24 hours to process a withdrawal. Card withdrawals and bank transfers can take between three and five days to process. PayPal and Neteller transactions can be a little bit quicker, so if you are after your money in a hurry then those are your best bets.
