The one thing that Jackpotjoy does differently from most other online bingo sites is the number of fast-changing promotions. Instead of having one large monthly promotion, they tend to opt for multiple, smaller weekly promotions.
This is both a curse and a blessing. It's a curse because there is a never-ending series of promotions to opt into. Plus they nearly all have some sort of wagering requirement. Of course, I understand that they are trying to appeal to a wide audience and that different promotions attract different players. And they want to increase customer loyalty and how much those customers spend.
But, it's a strategy that can be very annoying. For example, this week there are three promotions, none of which last for more than seven days. Two have wagering requirement which in total means you need to spend at least £70 to be entered. The third promo is a chat room promo.
I'm sure there are online bingo players who will happily play more than £70 per week. I, however, am not one of them. And definitely not if I have to do it every week simply to enter a random prize draw. And that is the downside of constantly rotating bingo promotions.
But there are two sides to every coin. The upside is that you do get a larger number of competitions, prize draws and games to enter. And if you are planning on playing bingo online anyway, then the added bonus of entering a prize draw is a good one.
It also means that while a promo this week may not be up your street, next week's one may very well be. So my advice is to pick and choose the ones that appeal to you the most.
What all that said, here is a breakdown of the three online bingo promotions at Jackpotjoy this week:
Mystery Solved – until 27th June
So this is based on the new online slot game, Cluedo Mystery, available at Jackpotjoy. I've played the slot and it really is good fun so this promo was definitely one for me. After you opt-in, you must wager at least £5 on the Cluedo Mystery game to be entered into the daily prize draw.
The prizes you can win are determined by what day you are playing. And they are as follows:
- 21st June – 1 of 10 ASOS vouchers each worth £150
- 22nd June – one of 5 Luxury Picnic
- 23rd June – 1 of 5 Spa finder vouchers each worth £100
- 24th June – 1 of 10 Marks & Spencer vouchers each worth £150
- 25th June one of 4 summer hampers
- 26th June – 1 of 10 One4all vouchers each worth £100
- 27th June – 1 of 10 Restaurant choice vouchers each worth £100
Just bear in mind that this is a daily prize draw. So to be entered each day, you must opt-in every time and spend £5 every day to qualify.
The Hi Season – until 26th June
This is your opportunity to win a holiday to Ibiza for 4 and much more. Simply predict how many ice cubes are in the next glass and play £30 or more on any games between Thursday 20th June and Wednesday 26th June to opt in for the chance to win.
So you click ‘Play Now' and the next screen has two glasses. The first has some ice cubes in it and you must determine whether the other glass has more or less in it. Guess correctly and you move on to the next round. The more rounds you get through, the higher the potential prize in the Bonanza Box (a runner-up prize in the draw).
Spend £30 on games over the course by June 26th and you get an entry into the holiday prize draw. Win all 7 rounds of the ice cube game and you’ll get a guaranteed share of £5,000.
Clue Dough – Chat Promo – until 27th June
As mentioned above, this is a chat room promotion. To take part you must be in the Community 1 bingo room at 9pm between Friday 21st June to Thursday 27th June for your chance to be picked to play. One player will be picked to play using The Randomiser. That player will then take on the role of Chief Detective.
You then have to choose three other players and between you solve the clues to build the jackpot.
So there you have this week's offerings from Jackpotjoy. They are fun and quirky and different enough to be attractive to a large number of online bingo players. Have fun and good luck if you take part!
