Here is what Simon Jones, one of the callers has to say about Jacks Live Bingo:
For those players who have yet to play internet bingo at Jacks Live Bingo, tell us a little bit about it.
Jacks Live Bingo is like no other bingo game on the internet. Playing 80 & 90 ball bingo games with the added advantage of a live & interactive caller gives the player the feel of being in a proper bingo club in the comfort of their own home. We’ve got lots of regular bingo jackpots, an alternative games room with plenty of other fun games plus the bonus of a full screen chat facility to interactive with us all – we’re a lovely bunch obviously. 🙂
Whats it like to be a live caller at Jacks Live Bingo, and how did you get involved?
I was presenting for an online TV channel (Yourkindatv.com) when the SJ Bingo opportunity came up…I popped along to the studio and was so impressed by game, game technology and work environment that I jumped at the chance when a job offer was made.
Being a live caller is a lot of fun. Not only do you get such a thrill when giving the announcement of a player’s win (be it big or small) but also the banter with the players via the chat box can be hilarious.
How does the live caller aspect work? Do you chat to the players using a keyboard, or do you speak to them directly? Or is it a bit of both?
A bit of both really…During each Presenter’s session (1 hour in length) there will be a live presenter on screen and a game Producer (off camera). The Presenter has the ability to view the game’s chatbox and respond live and direct on screen. The producer sees the same bingo chat rooms and has the facility to communicate with the players and Presenter via text. Each hour a new presenter takes to the stage to present the bingo session.
Do you play any bingo chat games?
We have a special fun hour scheduled every day (6pm-7pm excluding Saturday’s) where we play our own versions of popular tv gameshows. At present we play Family Fortunes, Countdown, Who am I? & Team bingo (Full details of these and other bingo promotions can be found on the Promotions page via the Home page.) Plus our team of presenters; sometimes improvise and come up with their own; unique bingo chat games to play…
Do you have any free bingo games at Jacks Live Bingo?
Free bingo hours are worked into the schedule, for full details of these, check the bingo promotion page.
What are the roomies like at Jacks Live Bingo?
They are very friendly, both regular players and newbies. Many times I’ve been presenting and a new player has commented on how friendly the chat box is. That is all credit to the players themselves. There will be the odd occasion when a player may say something they shouldn’t, but we have procedures in place to deal quickly and effectively with these situations. We also have set chat room rules which again can be found on the home page.
What would you say was the best / funniest moment you’ve had during a shift?
If there is one thing that can make me corpse on camera it’s a player’s user name. These are created by the player before they get to play the live game, so we never get to see them unless the players talk in chat or, win a game. I was calling a full house game when the winner flashed up with the user name i124Q….Now, can’t see anything wrong with that? Read it again…..And Again…..Geddit? I did (not litteraly). As soon as it clicked I just couldn’t keep a straight face through the next game….Clever, but V rude…the player had to change it.
If you had to describe Jacks Live Bingo in one sentence, what would you say?
A unique, fun, interactive internet bingo experience, which may see you never have to visit a real bingo hall again.
