Blox Bingo From Jackpot Joy

Sunday, Jul. 1st 2018 7:31 AM

Over the years we have seen a number of themed bingo games launched and we recall one called Bejeweled Bingo that was available at Jackpot Joy back in August 2010. The game wasn’t around for long but now we’ve found that there’s a similar bingo game available at the site but with a different name! It’s called Blox Bingo and when we first heard of it, we thought it was a new way to play the actual bingo game, it’s not.

Blox Bingo is like a standard game of 90 ball bingo except that when the numbers are called, they don’t appear on screen in bingo balls. Instead they are in ‘blox’. From a normal game, this is the only difference at Jackpot Joy BUT, if you have six tickets in play, you’ll then get to play Blox Blitz after the main game!

Wasn’t the weather glorious over the bank holiday weekend? There’s another due at the end of the month and we all have our fingers crossed that the sun dons his hat again soon but we all know what the British weather can be like, so it could be that you attention has been turned to sunnier climes for the summer holidays. If this is the case then you may want to get involved with the latest Jackpot Joy promotion.

Jackpot Joy want to know if you’re a saint or a sinner, although the former doesn’t seem to bear any reference to the theme. The singer part does though because it’s the Eurovision song contest that the site is celebrating!

Paddy McGuiness Outs Barbara Windsor At Jackpot Joy

Friday, Sep. 15th 2017 7:47 AM

Over the years we have seen a number of celebrities take centre stage in an online bingo commercial, and with some sites, more than one celeb has been seen on the screen for the same brand. However, when others have used multiple celebrities in one advert, they’ve usually been Z-listers. Not Jackpot Joy though, there new commercial has two well-known faces in!

When we first heard the news that Paddy McGuinness was recording a new commercial for Jackpot Joy, we thought the emphasis was going to be on the Take Me Out themed bingo game. This is not the case, far from it. It looks as though this much-loved northerner is going to be the face of the brand, at least for a while.

Bad Press For Jackpot Joy

Friday, Sep. 18th 2015 7:24 AM

Over the years, a number of online bingo sites have been the victims of bad press and more often than not, through circumstances beyond their control. Jackpot Joy is one such brand and recently they’ve once again made the tabloids but not with a great advertising campaign, but as a brand named in a deception case in Sheffield.

Katryn (Katrina) Jones, a 53 year old con woman, fiddled a whopping half a million pounds from a variety of sources over the years and was recently jailed for six years after pleading guilty to no less than 19 charges of fraud! Of the money that she swindled from people, she has to pay back just £1 and this is where the name Jackpot Joy was banded about.
