Review by Sarah Taylor, 16th Jan 2010
JackpotJoy is one of the most popular bingo and gaming operators... we found that there are so many different games on this site your spoilt for choice. The chat rooms here are very good. The CM's really get involved and theres always a lot of talk going on, ...so much fun in fact that we have found ourselves talking more than playing here.
For bingo we didnt find the graphics as flashy as on other sites, more simplistic but making everything very clear, easy to understand and good gameplay. Its strange sometimes the less flashy a site is the better the gameplay, I guess thats really a personal preference though.
As we mentioned spoilt for choice... well there are around 70 different games to choose from. There are five main categories of games split into Bingo, Multiline Slots, Slots, Casino Games and Instants. This consists of various forms of bingo, fruit machines, poker, keno, scratchcards as well as some ported from TV games.
The most recognisable games converted from TV are Deal or No Deal and Golden Balls. We really like these two games. Deal or No Deal works in exactly the same way as it does on TV exept you can choose your stake. With Golden Balls there isnt the opportunity to speak to your opponent but this still works well and you can split or steal... and with it being online if you steal there is no guilt involved!
0800 numbers are offered for support which is always reassuring.
Overall, compared to other sites the bingo graphics are not as flashy but the gameplay and sheer number of games available make up for this. If you want something different with tons of variety thats really sociable then we would recommend this site.
