In 2010, JackpotCity made the decision to move their bingo room away from the Virtue Fusion network and run the operation on Microgaming software instead.
This surprised many in the bingo community as Virtue Fusion is widely recognized as the best bingo software out there and is also able to offer a number of big money games given the number of players that are currently registered there.
However, the good news is that despite the move JackpotCity has continued to flourish and is still seen as one of the internet’s most popular room thanks to an excellent selection of games, a strong welcome bonus and a promise to offer a 25% reload bonus on all future deposits.
Bonus Offers and Promotions
When you open an account at JackpotCity Bingo for the first time, you’ll be offered a £25 free bonus when you make an initial deposit of £10.
This may not be the largest welcome bonus that you’ll find online, but it’s certainly still very attractive when you consider that can play a range of bingo games at JackpotCity for as little as 1p – that’s an awful lot of free bingo games for you to get your teeth into.
What has really got people talking though is JackpotCity’s promise of a 25% reload bonus.
While other bingo sites may offer their players a deposit bonus as a one off promotion, JackpotCity has gone a stage further and promised players that a 25% bonus will be added to any future deposits that they make (up to a maximum of £100).
Therefore, if you see yourself as a regular bingo player, this could add some real value to your bankroll.
JackpotCity offer five different bingo rooms which allow their players to get involved in a number of games spanning 75 Ball, 80 Ball and 90 Ball Bingo. What’s more, the room offers a good range of Speed Bingo and Pattern Bingo games as well as a number of very attractive side games.
Players can also get involved with a number of chat games which take place while a game of bingo can take place. These sort of games generally rely on players answering various questions, but it’s a great way to meet other players and pick up some valuable Bonus Bucks!
If there’s one criticism to be made of JackpotCity it’s that their Free Bingo offering isn’t quite as generous as you’ll find elsewhere on the internet. Free Bingo games are played on a daily basis (between 1pm and 7pm GMT in Bob’s Room), although there are fairly strict depositing requirements which must be met before you can join the game.
Players much deposit at least £10 very couple of weeks in order to be invited to the game which means that it’s slightly harder to be able to play for free than you’ll find elsewhere.
Progressive Bingo Games
For those of you who are looking to play for the biggest cash prizes, JackpotCity offers a progressive jackpot game which actually gets easier to win as the prizes get bigger.
These progressive games are hosted in the Rainbow Room throughout the day with a jackpot that starts off at £250. This cash is paid out to the first player who is able to complete a Full House in 40 balls or less.
For every game that the jackpot is not won, the cash prize goes up and the number of balls that players are able to complete their Full House increases by one too. This continues until someone wins the jackpot on offer, at which point the prize fund is reset to £250 and everything starts again.
There is no limit to the size of the progressive jackpot, and it’s not unusual to see players walk away with prizes worth in excess of £2,000 when it finally hits.
The JackpotCity Bingo community is full of committed bingo players who are more than welcoming to anyone new signing up to the site. The community may be a little small when compared to some of the largest sites on the web, but there’s a lot to be said for that seeing as you get to know people a lot more quickly.
Similarly, a dedicated team of Chat Hosts work hard to get to know all the players in a very short amount of time. So once you’ve played there two or three times, don’t be surprised if you’re welcomed back warmly by name, the next time that you turn up.
JackpotCity has one of the largest customer support teams that we’ve seen in the bingo industry.
As a result, whether you choose to get in touch by phone (thanks to a variety of toll free numbers), email or via the site’s live chat functionality, you’ll never have to wait long to be able to talk to someone.
What’s more, in our experience, the customer support team have never been anything short of helpful, knowledgeable and incredibly friendly.
