In September 2014, just ahead of the UK regulations for online gambling sites changes, Jackpot City Bingo made the decision to cease advertising to players in the UK. For this reason we have changed our banners to that of another brand using the Microgaming software, Butlers Bingo.
The following details are now for information purposes and will no longer be updated.

On the 2nd November 2009 Jackpot City Bingo made the unusual move of swapping from the Virtue Fusion software to the less popular Microgaming platform. Nevertheless they have stuck with this platform ever since and are now one of the most successful brands on the Microgaming network, where they sit alongside brands such as 32Red Bingo, Bingo on the Box, Butlers Bingo and Dream Bingo to name but a few.
Visit Jackpot City Bingo for the first time and you can’t help but be impressed. You can see that they have made a real effort to make themselves stand out from the networks other sites and it has worked as everything is bright and welcoming. They have used a blue and pink colour scheme to ensure they appeal to both male and female players alike and have not gone down the usual route of filling the homepage with loads of flashing banners. Instead they have opted for one large scrolling banner at the top of the page and a few smaller banners linking to important information about the site and its promotions.
When you come to register, you enter the usual details such as your name, address, email address and chosen username. Because Jackpot City Bingo operates in a number of different countries though, you will also have to choose the currency you want to play in and your phone number including your international dialling code (+44 for the UK) which can be a bit of a pain if you are not used to them. You do not need to enter any financial information until you are ready to make a deposit, but when you do, they will welcome you with an impressive bonus.
Head into the lobby and you will find a good selection of games including 75 ball bingo, 90 ball bingo and a wide range of side games covering progressive jackpots, scratch cards and table games, so there is no chance of you ever being bored. The tabs give you all the information you need in regards to the number of players taking part, the card price and the estimated jackpot you can win, which is all handy for determining the best place to play. At the top of the page you can clearly see your bingo balance, your casino balance, your cash balance and the number of loyalty points you accumulated so far.
The rooms continue the sites blue and pink colour scheme and everything is nicely designed. To the right hand side of the screen is where you will find your cards but unfortunately unlike a lot of other platforms, there is no way to zoom in on them. To the left of the room is where you can have a gossip with your friends, take part in chat games or enjoy a selection of mini games that open up in a new window. From these rooms you can also pre-purchase cards for future games, so you don’t have to be online to take part, or if you need to top up your link, just click on the ‘Banking’ button.
For a networked site, Jackpot City Bingo does pretty good when it comes to promotions, with a regular line-up including free bingo, bargain bingo, guaranteed jackpots, progressive jackpots and on the rare occasion prize bingo. In addition to this though, they always add weekly and monthly specials running too and through these, they give away thousands of pounds worth of bonus money to a large number of players. There are several banners scattered around the site advertising that they will be adding mobile bingo into the mix in the very near future and this is a real bonus as it will allow you to play your favourite games wherever you are.
We are not really a fan of the Microgaming platform and were disappointed when Jackpot City Bingo made the swap from Virtue Fusion. However, they have made the most of everything they offer and made a real effort to be the best site on the network. They are home to a great mix of games, some good promotions and have an army of loyal fans. If you love receiving big bonuses or are maybe just love the Microgaming software, then you really can’t go wrong at Jackpot City Bingo. Don’t take our word for it though, sign up now and take a look for yourself!
Jackpot City Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Game Options at Jackpot City Bingo
Jackpot City Bingo runs on the Microgaming software which provides them with 75 ball bingo and 90 ball bingo plus a range of casino games, slots games and mini games. All of these side games look fantastic and the video slots alone are enough to convince you to register. The graphics are impressive, the gameplay is exciting and the extra features are guaranteed to keep you entertained for hours. Add to this the chance to win truly life changing jackpots and you really do have something for players of all tastes.
Head into the bingo rooms and you will find they are nicely design with a large portion of the screen dedicated to displaying your cards. Unfortunately the software does not allow you to manually daub your cards so you will have to sit back and watch but at least there is a selection of shapes and colours to choose from. In the chat room you can change the colour and size of your font and there is a selection of emoticons too. Also included is chat sounds, these include common bingo lingo and a few random sayings but to be honest they become very irritating very quickly, so it’s lucky you can mute them!
Jackpot City Bingo offer a good range of promotions to suit all tastes. If you love big money games then you really can’t go wrong as they are home to loads of guaranteed and progressive jackpots. There are several progressive jackpots up for grabs for you slots fans too and these regularly reach life changing proportions. These are just the highlights of the Jackpot City Bingo schedule though as you will find guaranteed prize pots popping up throughout the day and okay they may not be massive prize pots but they are definitely higher then normal.
In addition to the big money games though, they are always adding weekly and monthly specials into the mix. The difference with these promotions though is that instead of rewarding one player with a bundle of cash, they are designed to reward as many players as possible with small amounts of bonus money (BBZ’s). This may not be as exciting as seeing people walking away with massive jackpots but it does generate more winners and that is never a bad thing. If all of this is not enough for you, they also have a free bingo room that is open each day between 6.30pm and 10.30, giving you even more chances win loads of BBZ.
Jackpot City Bingo is packed full of guaranteed jackpots and the great news is you can pre-purchase your cards so you don’t even have to be online to take part. If you are a 90 ball bingo fame, there are eight games that you really don’t want to miss out on:
- The Big £10m – £1 a card
- Monthly £2,000 – £1 a card
- Monthly £1,000 – 50p a card
- Weekend Triple £1,000 – 50p a card
- Weekend Triple £500 – 30p a card
- Daily Triple £500- 30p a card
- Monthly £500 – 30p a card
