Jackpotjoy is one of the relatively few online casinos in the UK market that is run by a major software developer. The developer in question is Gamesys, and they've been in the business since the earliest days of online gambling. Though Gamesys has built up a pretty formidable collection of titles over the years, they don't rely entirely on their own roster to flesh out Jackpotjoy.
There is a surprising focus on bingo here for a casino with "jackpot" in the title, though to be fair the slot collection is nothing to sneeze at. That bingo focus isn't necessarily a bad thing considering brick-and-mortar bingo halls are dwindling throughout the UK. Slot players will also definitely find something they enjoy here, and there's a decent sprinkling of table games as well.
Available Games and Software
Jackpotjoy has a grand total of about 200 games - 153 slots, 15 kinds of bingo, six live dealer games, about a dozen table games and a handful of miscellaneous games. That does make it one of the smaller online casinos in the UK market, but as with most of the casinos that come in under 300 games this seems to have been an intentional move. All of the games are "instant play" in your web browser, meaning the casino's entire collection works across a wide range of device types without having to worry about software or app compatibility.
Among the slots collection are some interesting titles that you don't see all that often, such as the Agatha Christie series (Murder on the Orient Express and Mystery Wilds), The Godfather and Snake Rattle & Roll. And if you like the Monopoly slot games, they have quite a few on hand here - Big Event, City Spins, Paradise Mansion and Rising Riches. There are also a few progressive jackpot options such as Double Bubble Jackpot and Tiki Island Jackpot. Jackpotjoy is also one of the few places in the UK we've seen the arcade-slot hybrid Diamond UltraCash.
Quite a few styles of bingo are available, including the "Round The Clock" game which can be played at just about any time. Tickets are as low as 1p each, and keep an eye out for periodic free game promotions that offer five or six games each day at no charge (but with real prize money if you win).
Surprisingly, there is indeed a live casino here and it sports six types of games - roulette, baccarat, blackjack, Three Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em and Dream Catcher. The regular selection of video table games adds six blackjack options, three roulette tables, baccarat, keno, video poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Hi-Lo and Pai Gow Poker.
Gamesys draws the majority of the lineup from their own catalogue of software, but some NetEnt and Williams (WMS) titles are also in the mix.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
Deposits can be made with the usual big-name options: Visa, MasterCard / Maestro, PayPal and Paysafecard. Paysafecard is not an option for the very first deposit, unfortunately. The minimum deposit is a reasonable £10 for all methods and you can deposit up to £20,000 at a time if you're using a credit or debit card.
You can also withdraw using all of these methods, again with a minimum of £10. Daily withdrawal caps range from £5,000 for the e-wallet services (Neteller is included as an option solely for withdrawals) to £25,000 for a Visa or MasterCard. Expect most withdrawals here to take 24 to 72 hours to clear all the processing hurdles and hit your account.
Safety and Security
Jackpotjoy is overseen by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and the Gibraltar Gambling Commission, two of the world's best online gaming regulatory bodies. Transfer of documents and financial transactions are also appropriately secured with encryption and a secure upload framework for verifying your identity.
Bonuses and Player's Club
Jackpotjoy welcomes new players with 30 free spins at Double Bubble and 200 free tickets for standard bingo games (all of the games except for Session Bingo and Play Off Palace). You only need to deposit and wager £10 to qualify, and amazingly there is no wagering requirement to withdraw any winnings from either the spins or the tickets! That's a very rare thing among online casinos.
That's not the end of the impressive offers here, however. There are also three daily free games that you can actually win real money at! You'll need to have deposited at least £2 in the past seven days to play them, but they don't require any additional wagering. The three games are Tiki's Catch of the Day, Doubly Bubbly and Paper Wins. You pick one to play each Monday and can then play it once each day of the week. The possible prizes from these games range up to £750 in value.
There are also all sorts of rotating promotions including days where everyone can win free play simply for logging in and playing, playing a certain amount at a particular game to be entered into a prize draw, quiz and chat games for prizes, and more. There are many of these sorts of promotions and they change frequently, so check out the Jackpotjoy website to see what is currently on offer.
Finally, there is a referral bonus. For each friend you get to sign up and make a deposit, you'll get a £20 bonus to play with.
Is Jackpotjoy Worth It?
Jackpotjoy is one of the smaller online casinos in the UK market, but it's easily worth spending some time at for the generous promotions if nothing else. It really helps to have a taste for slots and bingo, since that's what most of the promotions are oriented to, but hey - free stuff is free stuff!
