Jackpot Cafe Review - Site Reviews
In June 2014 Jackpot Cafe closed their affiliate scheme through which we promote their brand. For this reason we have chosen to redirect our players to another site on the same platform that offers the same gaming experience.
Jackpot Cafe is a great looking site with a user-friendly layout and easy to use links and menus. Jackpot Cafe employs the Leapfrog Gaming 3D bingo software, which was unique upon launch, offering 3D walk and talk software, however changes to the interface in 2013 took the onus off the 3D section, and while the site is still different to others available, it has in our opinion lost its unique selling point.
Once you have signed up at Jackpot Cafe you will need to download their bingo software, this will only take a few minutes using a broadband connection and is a simple and easy process. Be aware that Jackpot Cafe is not Mac compatible at the time of writing, but we are hoping this is something the brand is working on. When you do get started, you will receive a £20 no-deposit bonus without having to fund your Jackpot Cafe account. Once you decide to make a deposit you will receive a further 300% deposit match. You can fund your Jackpot Cafe in a number of ways including; NETeller, FirePay, Click2Pay, Visa, Mastercard, and Direct Wire Transfer. Be aware that when using your no deposit bonus, you can only enter the newbies bingo room, a 90-ball room, other rooms are open only to depositing players.
Graphically the Jackpot Cafe interface looks great. When you first arrive in the lobby you can edit your avatar's appearance, and choose a seat, though that's it for the 3D experience, once you launch the bingo game it takes up full screen with bingo tickets to the left, instant games splashed across the middle, and chat to the right of the screen. For a software that has been recently overhauled it feels very dated and it's truly nothing like anything else available today.
There are a range of side games available to play at Jackpot Cafe including; 3 reel and 5 reel slots plus other side games that you can play during your bingo games. You will also find numerous online bingo promotions and tournaments running regularly, with great jackpots and prizes on offer, including food and wine hampers.
Make sure you head over to cafe and sample their menu; it’s no greasy spoon but playing online bingo there makes you feel just as warm and fulfilled as a full English breakfast and hot pot of tea does.
