      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      great fun with the chances to win big!

      I always enjoyed a bit of harmless gambling. I usually put bets on football on a weekend just a pound here and there. I have been signed up with Jackpotjoy for nearly two years now and it's the best gambling site I have used.

      I signed up as I had seen an advert in my magazine which said deposit £10 and get £35 to play. I decided to give it a try as every week I saw people in the magazine winning great sums of money. I played on several different bingo games and slots and won small amounts. I left £5 in my account to use the next day.

      I went on and played a game called snap! You buy a ticket for 20p which gives you 5 cards from a pack of playing of cards. Then as the cards are called out if yours is picked it marks each one of with the letters S N A P ! If you win in 5 cards you get £10000, 6 cards £1000 7 cards £500 and anything else you just win what is in the pot from the players. I wasn't paying attention to the game as I playing on my phone when I glanced up and notice a big box on my screen which I closed as I thought it was just an advertisement. I looked up to see £1113 in my balance!! I had won in 6 cards which I just couldn't believe. I withdrew it straight away just to make sure it was real.

      I've won big twice more since both times just over a £1000 and have also won small amounts frequently. I really enjoy playing on the slots especially double bubble. There is something for everyone on the site including bingo, slots, casino, scratch cards etc.

      You don't need to spend a lot to win or play as some of the games are only 1p. As I have proved it is possible to win with just 1 ticket. The jackpots on the site have been over a million before and you've got much more chance of winning something on jackpotjoy than you have the lottery!

      You can set limits so you don't spend more than you can afford - a limit of £10 month is fine which is what I have done before.

      Please message me if you want to sign up and I will send you a referral link. Then send your referral link to your friends because you get £20 for every referral.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      good site, just too busy for me

      I joined this site a few weeks ago as I had seen lots of advertising for it and they were advertising a 200% bonus on fist deposits.

      There are plenty of choices of games to play including casino games like poker, blackjack and roulette as well as bingo and slot machines.

      When I signed up there was a choice of ways to deposit including ukash and debit cards. I deposited £10 with a debit card and £30 was in my account. I wished to play on the casino games and didn't have much luck. I was down to my last couple of pounds and was browsing the site and realised that because I had opted to receive a bonus there were wagering requirements to be met before I could withdraw. It was my fault I didn't read the small print but playing slots and casino games a lot of the games don't count towards your wagering requirement or if they do it is a very small percentage so you could end up playing through around £200 before being able to withdraw. It seems the bingo games give you the best percentage towards filling up this wagering metre.

      I gave the bingo a go but just found there were far too many players in the rooms, some games are linked games and there could be hundreds playing.

      There is an option not to receive a sign up bonus and to just play with what you have deposited. The good thing is that you can use the bonus on whatever you like as some sites only let you use your bonus funds on bingo.
      There is also a free game, you can choose from one of four each week.You can then select 6 or 7 squares each day on a grid. If you match up so many symbols over the course of the week you may win free bingo tickets, free spins on slots or cash.

      There are also free bingo games throughout the day. There are a couple of chat games too where you can win a small cash prize.
      I like the layout of the website and the choice of games to play but I just find thee are too many players on the bingo games for my liking, this also affects the chat as so many people are typing its had to keep up.

      I would recommend the site for single player casino games.

        I'm waiting since the 2nd of December. Only 100 euro's back to my creditcard what is the card I have paid with to play bingo. There excuse first: not possible to send back to card. Excuse 2: we can not send a cheque in euro's. So, I ask the cheque in pounds (is for me the same). That is there next excuses. That is not possible. Now they have STOPPED my account. I lose my 100 euro (+/- 85 pound) and can not come in any contact. THAT'S THERE WAY!!!!!!!!Are the more people with these experience?I want to make denunciations at official departments, information to important magazines and newspapers and to tv programms about this.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Worth a look for gamblers

        I often take advantage of offers for free bets, free gaming tokens and free credit for sites such as Jackpot Joy which is essentially an online Casino which claims to pay out over £3 million pounds per day to winners. I came across the site as Quidco were offering cashback for deposited bets so I thought why not. After all I don't mind a bit of bingo and roulette now and then so if I had fun and got my money back as a minimum any win would be a bonus.

        Of course, with no discredit intended to Jackpot Joy, there is always an sniff of suspicion with online gambling sites and having used them in the past I certainly would say I've noticed many times things happen that really shouldn't but my experience with Jackpot Joy was nothing but positive.

        After depositing any set amount on sign up they will match it (so a £10 deposit will give you £20 credit) but be warned, there is a catch which I fell for. You are not actually allowed to withdraw anything, even your deposit until you have wagered twice that amount. So with my initial deposit being £10 I had to wager £20 before I could take anything out. Now that's not all but in the small print it tells you only certain games go towards this total so if you play £10 on slots or instants it doesn't count, 5% on other games but only Bingo and snap are 100% towards the wagering fund which is really annoying and got me frustrated. Always a lesson to read the small print!

        So I got gaming and headed for the Slots. Played through a few pounds and had a bit of luck, so many slots on this site ranging from 5p to £1 stakes that slot fans will have almost too much to handle! After that I headed for some of the instant games, avoiding the scratchcards etc but heading for the likes of Deal of No Deal which is a good little game where you actually play the TV show rules, opening boxes etc for whatever stake you choose (obviously higher the stake higher the prize money). There is also games like Bejewelled and Golden Balls in instants but winning is difficult.

        I popped into the casino and had a spin on the roulette and there was also black jack etc to play which is all what you would expect from such a site.

        Bingo is the most popular game on the site and there are a variety of games to play and with multiple wins per game, rolling jackpots and free games there is so much to do if you like Bingo and it's a fast, lively and colourful gaming screen with a friendly community always willing to chat as you play.

        In addition there are always new games added and new promotions, features and big prize games. The site seems very very genuine and I saw big jackpots being won by people I had chatted to before so I have no real suspicions about this site.

        The online support was solid providing a live chat service that works well and my problem was remedied quickly with a friendly and prompt service. The site worked well even at peak times and there was never any issues of slowdown or disconnection.

        All in all a fun, hassle free online gambling experience!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I'll stick around for the free game but otherwise I'm trying to cut back on these kind of sites!

        I signed up for this online gambling site last year to take advantage of a cashback offer. It's one of the few sites that I've stuck with, for reasons that I'll go into in this review.

        ***THE GAMES***
        There are lots of games that can be played and I'll admit that I've not even remotely played them all so I'm only going to comment on the ones that I've had personal experience of. That's mostly the slot-style games and the scratch card-style games. Having played a few with the money that I initially deposited, I had most success on the "X Factor" slots game (which is really just your average slots game but with X Factor -related symbols like people singing) and the Noughts and Crosses style scratchcard, although that was hit and miss too. If you're someone who likes to vary what kind of games they play, this is a pretty good site due to the amount of options there are.

        I haven't deposited any money for some time now as I've been playing a free game called Tiki's Catch of the Day. This gives you the opportunity to win cash and "prizes" range from free spins (a bit similar to slots in that you can potentially win money but aren't guaranteed to) right up to big cash prizes of £750. I've been playing the game for months now and have probably won around £20 in total, with one £5 win and the rest coming from free spins. The free spins seem easier to win than the cash prizes and I've not even come close to winning anything above £5. If you do win a cash prize, it's automatically added to your balance total so you don't have to wait for it.

        ***DEPOSITING***
        Once you've registered a card, it's simple to deposit. I personally used a debit card, so the money was taken out of my account straight away and was deposited right away too. When I was sent a new debit card earlier this year, I don't recall having any problems when I came to update my details. This has been a problem on some other sites as it's not always been easy to update card details. To deposit, just go into "My Account", hit the "Deposit" option and fill in the details there. You can register a different deposit method, but your account needs to be under £1 to do so.

        ***WITHDRAWING***
        As far as I'm aware, you need to have £10 in your account to be able to make a withdrawal request. Although I use a debit card to make deposits, I use a bank transfer for withdrawals. I've made two requests so far and on both occasions, the money has gone back into my bank account around 2-4 days later so they're pretty efficient. To withdraw, you just need to go into "My Account", select the "Withdraw" option and confirm how much you want to withdraw and where it's going to be going.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        All in review

        I joined jackpotjoy back in july 2009, it is an online gambling site that you can play for real cash or for prize points.

        ~~ Playing For Fun ~~

        Prize points can be used to enter competitions to win prizes such as £1000 cash, red letter day vouchers, luxury spa days or an Ipod touch, 50 prize points are 1 entry into any prize draw but you can enter as many times as you like.

        ~~ Playing For Real ~~

        Please note you must be over 18 to join
        It is super easy to deposit through JackpotJoys secure server they accept all major credit and debit cards and all deposits are instant. They do however have a minimum deposit of £10.00. Jackpotjoy also sometimes offer a cash match so if you deposit £10 they will also give you £10.00.

        ~~ Daily Play ~~

        Jackpotjoy run a daily play - play for free win cash game which is available to all members who have made a deposit, however you do not need to have any money in your account, at the moment it is called Tikis catch of the day,

        ~~ Navigating the site ~~

        The site is very self explanatory but if you do have any problems there is always a chat host in every room who should be able to help you with your query.

        ~~ Withdrawing Funds ~~

        This is really simple, if you deposited via credit card then you can withdraw to this, if you deposited via debit card then you can choose either BACS (straight into your bank account) or Cheque. Payments are made within 2-3 days of your withdrawal request.

        ~~ The games ~~

        Jackpotjoy offers a massive variety of games to play including Bingo, Scratch-cards, Casino games, Slots, some incorperating our favourite tv game shows like Deal or No Deal, Family Fortunes and so on. Bingo is available in about 10 different 'rooms' ranging from 2p a card to 25p a card. Some of these games have massive progressive Jackpots that you could potentially win.

        ~~ My Experience ~~

        I joined Jackpotjoy back in July because Quidco were offering £30.00 cash back if you joined and deposited £10.00, which I thought was great. Quidco is a cashback site and If you don't know much about it you can find out more here http://www.quidco.com/jackpotjoy?ac they are currently offering £15.00 cashback so in effect they are giving you £5.00 for nothing and there is always a chance you might win with your £10.00 deposit.
        I have to say I am not really a gambler but recently did start doing the free daily play which I won £7.00 on, I did at this point try to cash out but when I tried it stated minimum withdrawal is £10.00 so I thought I would have a quick go of bingo instead, well what can I say I was slightly shocked when I won a full house of £158.00 on a 25p bingo card. At this point I was definately cashing out, which was simple enough I was slighlt dubious as to whether it would go through though having only deposited once when opening the account, but sure enough after 3 days it was in my bank account, which I was well chuffed about.

        ~~ My Opinion ~~

        A really friendly site, that pays up if you win with a wide variety of games to suit everybody. It's well worth a shot. You must be over 18 and also beaware that many people become addicted to gambling sites so be very careful.


        Thank you for reading my review I hope it is of some help to you.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A fun site

          Jackpotjoy is an online gambling site that has a lot of different types of games to play, ranging from scratchcards to bingo and casino games, snap and slot machines Jackpotjoy has a game for all.

          There are lots of different types of slot machines and many are based on TV shows, you have slots with single lines or multi line slots ranging from 5 to 30 lines, the minimum stake per line varies depending on the game, on some it is as low as 1p per line.

          There are also games that mimic tv game shows so you can try and beat the banker or steal the golden ball cash.

          There are also many types of bingo, with ticket prices starting at 1p, jackpot joy can rival most online bingo sites.

          You can buy scratchcards and play instant games, These start at 20p and are varied in design and ways to play.

          Then theres the casino games, these are very varied and range from more classic casino games like roulette, black jack and poker to the more unusual like snap. Some of the games are played against other jackpotjoy players and some are played on your own.

          There is also games you can play on your mobile, you load the games onto your mobile from your account so you can play the games on the move, I have not done this myself.

          Jackpot joy offers you the chance to try all the games for fun with your prize points, these are points that you can use to try the games and also use to enter jackpotjoys competitions for a chance to win some good prizes like TV's and holidays.

          Jackpotjoy run quite a few promotions and so far I have won a goody bag and a bar of chocolate with £5 free jackpotjoy money, plus I have received quite a few complementary gift vouchers to use on the site.

          The minimum deposit is £10 and so is the minimum withdrawal. Funds take a few days to go into your bank account.

          I would recommend this site to anyone who likes bingo sites and casino sites.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Gambling site

          I am a recent member of Jackpotjoy and first found this site from browsing through a "cashback site". Once a first signed up to Jackpotjoy, I deposited £10 in my account and was also given £10 freeplay from Jackpotjoy. The cashback site was also offering £20 for people whom signed up to Jackpotjoy through their site. Since being a member of Jackpotjoy, I have been amazed at the amount of money certain people have won, and have won quite a bit of money myself. They accept many majoy credit / debit cards as payment to your Jackpotjoy account. You can also withdraw funds / winnings back to your bank account.
          This site is a gambling site so one must always remember to control themselvesin terms of placing bets, etc, as they are running a business at the end of the day. Iif you are losing, I can advise you not to try spend lots more money so you can try "earn" your money back but gladly just give it a go another day.
          There are many different games which you can play, and my favourite is "single hand blackjack". It is great to often try other games too though so that you get a variety of what is available.

          The prize money that this site offers is quite good too!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A fantastic website to chat, play games and win prizes.

          JackpotJoy is an online website where you can play games, chat & win prizes. There are two options available on the site one where you can play for points and when where you can play for real. I play for points and then I use my points to pay for entries to the free prize draws for miscellaneous prizes such as cameras, cash, gift vouchers etc and whilst I have never won anything it's a great site to play considering it doesn't cost anything other than my time. I have deposited once to JackpotJoy (£10) and I got a 100% cash match bonus. I was fortunate enough to win a small amount so I wisely cashed out before it all got swallowed up again! You can deposit by credit or debit card or by a couple other ways and I don't have much experience of this area other to say that my £10.00 was deposited and my winnings were credited just a day later so I was very happy. I have not suffered any problems with my card since using it on this site so that is reassuring.

          There are many games to play from such as bingo, poker, snap, hi-lo, slots, blackjack etc and some of these are available to play for points and some of them are for paying members only. I think this is fine as it means that people who are playing for real money will get to play with games that other people won't and this is nice as you get something extra as an incentive. There are a fair few games that are available to all members so there should really be something for everybody and you don't have to spend any money at all which is a huge plus to this website.

          I have only had to contact the customer service once when I had a crash and lost some points and they must have checked everything because they credited back the points that I had mentioned I'd lost. I contacted them via e-mail and got a prompt response the same day which rectified the problem I had and I didn't incur anything again.

          The website is easy to use and loads up well. I have no complaints about the quality of the games and there are some great chat rooms where I have chatted to quite a few people. People are always nice and congratulatory on the website and I always find the website to have quite a nice cheerful vibe and I think that this is the reason that I keep returning time and time again.

          I am rating the website 5/5 because it's great that I can chat and play lots of free games online with the chance of winning some prizes by entering the prize draws. I would definitely recommend the website but it's probably best to play with points unless you have a little spare money to waste.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A good online bingo site if you know your limits

            I signed up to Jackpot Joy a few months back via a cashback site offer which was giving me £25 cashback for sigining up and depositing £10.
            What have I got to lose I thought? So filled in the registration form, deposited £10 from my bank card and off I went to explore the site. The site accepts all major cards and you can withdraw winnings back to your card. I believe they ask you to send proof of ID if you withdraw a large amount, but small amounts are transferred to your card within a few days of requesting it.

            Apart from playing bingo, you can also play slots and scratchcards. I have tried the slots and scratchcards but if you don't have a win, your £10 is gone in seconds! I prefer to hang on to my money a little longer than that, so decided to stick to playing bingo.

            There are quite a few bingo rooms to choose from, and you can play 75 or 90 ball bingo. I chose a 75 ball bingo room, the price of the cards were 25p each, though they had offers at certain times of the day such as buy 2 get 1 free etc. I bought some cards and sat back to watch the game, as you don't actually have to do anything, the site is programmed to automatically mark your cards and claim for you if you win.

            I realised that a lot of people were chatting in the chat box, and as your name appears in the list of people playing, you can see exactly who is in the room. I found people to be very friendly on the whole and enjoyed the chat. I did have a couple of small wins and found myself returning to the site now and then, and playing in the same room again, and actually struck up friendships with a couple of members.

            There were often some free bonus games which are random and can pop up at anytime, where you can win anything from 50p to £100. Also each bingo room has a progressive jackpot which is added to every game until someone wins it by winning the game within a certain amount of numbers. These jackpots can amount to thousands of pounds, and you can see the happy winners on the winners page. Someone I chatted to, actually won a jackpot of £3000 whilst I was playing, and it gave me an incentive to think 'maybe that might be me, one day' . However, though I had a couple of small wins and did cashout around £40 from my initial deposit, I did not have any more wins for a while. I deposited more money and won a few pounds, but am not in a position to be able to afford to do this very often, and have other things to spend my spare cash on.

            You can play some games on this site for free where you earn points which you can use to buy tickets for prize draws. I did enter some draws but haven't been lucky enough to win.

            The downside of the site is you see a lot of folk playing all day on there and they spend hundreds of pounds! They often buy the maximum amount of cards( known as 'maxing') and seem to win a lot, but when asked , they will say they are still 'down' on what they have spent that day, which i think is frightening! Yes the option is there for you to place a limit on your account, but some people have not got the willpower to do this.
            The other downside to folk 'maxing' is that they will often win a few games in a row, and then you find players will complain that the same names win all the time, or state that it is 'fixed'. Whilst I don't think it is a fix, this does spoil the games for people who only buy 1 or 2 cards, as although it only takes one card to win, when you see the same person win 11 games in a row (as I did) it is a bit disheartening. It's much more enjoyable when different people are winning.

            All in all it is a good site and very friendly, however, it is not very often I can afford to have a flutter, as £10 really doesn't last very long if you don't win! It's easy to see how you could become addicted and get into debt playing online bingo. A scary thought, and one which I bear in mind, and so I have actually found a free bingo site which I prefer to use, where you can win points and convert them to Amazon vouchers, or money to play on a pay site with. This way I'm not spending any money and can still have a small win.

            Good luck!

              Go for it and get the cashback - who knows, you might actually win!

              I signed up to Jackpotjoy.com because, via cashback site wepromiseto.com they were offering £20 cashback when you deposit and play £10. Additionally, you get a matched bonus (i.e. they give you the same amount again as you put in) so, knowing that in the worst case scenario I'd still be up £10 from the cashback, I had nothing to lose.


              Signing-up
              =======
              The process was pretty straightforward; you create a username and password, enter your email and personal details, then the billing details of the card you want to make the deposit from, and finally the card details. And you're away!


              How the site works
              ==============
              Jackpotjoy is much like a lot of other online gambling sites. For those who don't use them, this means:

              - You don't have to download any software: the games are played using java and in a seperate window
              - There is a range of games available: bingo, slot machines, scratchcards and others such as Deal or no Deal.
              - There are complicated rules regarding depositing and withdrawing your money (I'll go into this later)
              - There is an average of 95% payout - higher than in real casinos (I think)!

              What this does mean that for every £1 you put in you'll only get 95p back on average, which is a high enough amount to keep you gambline, but still means, on average, that you will eventually lose all your money.

              I should mention that Jackpotjoy offers the choice to play for free. On any game (except bingo) you can choose to play it for real, i.e. cash, or for points. These are used to buy tickets for various prize draws - current ones are for £250 amazon vouchers, £500 cash, a spa trip, etc. A ticket costs 50 points, so the more games you win, the more tickets you'll be able to buy, and the more chances you'll have to win (obviously...) Jackpotjoy gives you 10,000 to start playing with.


              The Games
              ========
              There are a large variety of games to choose from, but they fall into the following categories: Slots, instants and bingo.


              Slots
              ====
              (There are many, many available, with different amounts of money wagered and different bonus rounds; this one describes Deal or No Deal slots)

              When you start the game you're given the choice of playing 5p, 10p or 20p per line (20 lines is the maximum, meaning at 20p, 1 spin will cost you £4!) You simply press the spin button, and 5 wheels spin, stopping one by one. Your prize (or lack of) is shown at the end. And that's it!
              The extreme simplicity of the game means it's very, very easy to just keep pressing the 'spin' button as your money withers away, and I would say this is a very much 'win big (e.g. £2-3 on a £1 spin) or nothing' kind of game.

              What makes the DOND slots different is that if you get a line of 'Bonus' boxes and you play 20 lines, you play an actual DOND game, with the chance to win the jackpot. If you don't play 20 lines and you get a bonus line, you are simply given an offer - this could be higher or lower than what you've actually won - which you can accept or decline.


              Instants
              ======
              The only 'instant' I played was the the actual DOND game, though there are about 10 others, most of which are scratchcard-type ones.

              The DOND game is quite fun! It's essentially like the one on TV with a couple of differences: there are 26 boxes rather than 22, and your stake determines the box values. The lowest stake, 50p, has a jackpot of £5 and a lowest box of 1p. I found this game the best for winning small amounts of money easily, but not so great for high payouts.


              Bingo
              ====
              This is what a lot of people will come to Jackpotjoy for, so how is it? Well, pretty good!

              Play-wise, Jackpotjoy's bingo is pretty similar to other bingo sites - very easy to use (I'd never played bingo before in my life and managed it!). Everything is done for you: your cards are sorted by how many numbers you have left for a line, two lines or full house; numbers are stamped automatically; if you get a line, the game automatically stops and your winnings are shown (I got a full house!). You can also choose to do everything manually, but I don't see why you would, or even could if you had the maximum 60 tickets!

              In the bigger rooms with higher jackpots, you'll need more money for the maximum amount of tickets and vice versa.

              So, playing the games on Jackpotjoy can be pretty exciting. But when you want to actually get your money, it's less so...


              Getting your money
              ==============
              When you sign up, you can choose not to get the bonus. I don't imagine many people do as it's like turning down free money, but if they do turn it down, the following doesn't apply.

              The biggest shock I got was that Jackpotjoy doesn't let you withdraw money until you've wagered EIGHT times your original deposit - including the bonus! So if you deposit the £10 minimum for cashback, with the £10 bonus you'll have to wager £160 before you can withdraw anything!

              As if that wasn't enough, games such as DOND classic and many others don't count. What this means in essence, is that unless you get super lucky and manage to gamble £160 of bets with just £20, you'll have to deposit more before your bank account'll see that money again.

              Also, forget about withdrawing the bonus. When I'd finally wagered enough to be able to withdraw, I had about £12 in my account. So I clicked on 'withdraw' only to be told that the bonus didn't count and I couldn't withdraw £2 as the minimum was £10! It was only by winning a full house on bingo that I -finally- got enough to actually withdraw.


              Other points of note
              ================
              Shortly after signing up I'd lost my £20 deposit and bonus (it's very easy to lose on the slot machines!) So I was surprised when an envelope arrived in the post, treating me to another £5 bonus. I imagine they send these to all new members with no money left to entice them into playing again. I'd nearly reached the £160 of wagering needed to withdraw, so I thought I might as well.

              Well, I was very careful and managed to actually get enough to withdraw money (helped a lot by that full house!). They hadn't forgotten about my original bonus, so detracted £10 from my winnings, but they apparently let me withdraw the second £5 bonus, which was nice!


              Overall opinion
              ============
              If you're coming into it like me, with £20 cashback from a £10 deposit and thus nothing to lose, Jackpotjoy is a diverting way to - in all probability - watch your money go down the toilet. Even if you get a win, the bonus rules mean your money is locked away until you've done a LOT of betting. (One wonders, is the eight times rule the perfect amount to ensure everyone's lost their money?)

              Aside from this, the variety of games is quite good, and I found I didn't get bored playing just a few select ones. Just make sure you know their rules before you happily try to withdraw your money, or you may get a nasty surprise!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A great gambling site with loads of different games and generous handouts

                I originally logged onto www.jackpotjoy.com via one of the cashback sites (www.moneybackmadness) as I was able to deposit £10, get a further £10 from the cashback site plus another £10 from Jackpot - therefore, my original stake of £10 was cancelled out and I was up £20; or £10 for £30 - gambling, however you want to think about it !

                The site was bright blue, bold and colourful with lots of blinking imagery which I found quite off-putting. However, it was easy to use and there were a huge variety of games to choose from.

                You can play for fun, or for money and you accumulate points along the way for competition entries.

                I liked the scratchcard section, the noughts and crosses game in particular. This one way a £0.50 stake, but there is something for every pocket on here.

                There are great graphics too, so on the scratchcard section, an elderly gent hands you a card and the graphics on his till change if you win or not!

                As the site gives you £10, you do need to reach a £100 wager in order to qualify and withdraw funds - this means in effect, recycling your cash over and over...ie using our original stake, adding on your winnings so overall you have managed to reach the threshold. This wasn't an issue and its easy to do so - it just means that the path is clear for next time - anything I win, I can withdraw right away without having to reach any particular threshold.

                I hadn't played for a week and they have just sent me a £5 bonus coupon through the mail, which I have added to my account - overall it seems to be a fairly generous site, but I don't have anything to compare it to as this is the first one that I have tried.

                Overall, pleased so far with the service and ease of use on this one.

                Only logging on infrequently though as I imagine it could be rather addictive which is why they are relatively generous in the beginning to hook you in !

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  see in review.

                  I love this website, its my favorite place to have a flutter.

                  At the moment they offer a free £10 to new members, read the terms and conditions before accepting. The site itself is not much to look at really, and doesn't seem highly professional, but the games it has and the bingo rooms are fab.

                  I deposited £10, got my free £10 and had a go at the deal or no deal slots game, winning £50 first go. There was no withdrawal limitations, i withdrew straight away. This morning I had another go and won £100, followed by £70 shortly later. Obviously gambling is down to luck and so not a good basis to judge a website on as such, but this one seems less stingy than the rest.

                  The only annoyance i have with it, is that its a bit of a click through to get back to the games when you go to your account. Other than that, there is something for everyone of this vibrant, fast loading site.

                  Disadvantages

                  worth a cheaky tenner

                  Well this site has many different games, they range from bingo to slots to deal or no deal anything realy you want to play that is a instant game you can find on this site.

                  I first joined the site to play bingo as my bird is well into it or was at the time. We joined and got our first depoisted matched which i thought was a nice welome package.

                  On the very last go of bingo when our funds was about to run out we won and won 80 pound i think. the game stright after we won again winning another 80 pound. however they claimed we won the money using our free money they gave us so we have to re stake so much of that money. not to much of a problem as we still have won real money and have more to play with.

                  We made a smart move however in gonig on deal or no deal and bailing out at the first chance meaning we staked the money but didnt lose it, in fact we gained a few pound.

                  Have used the site a few times and have got a couple of wins from it. The people on there are friendly and there is a host in every room who also is friendly. The site is easy to get around and i belave you can get a free 2 pound token when you first sign up aswell without having to stake any money in the first place.

                  There is one thing however that is still a doubt in my mind to this day. I opened a account myself in my own name and again on the very last go i won on the bingo. I no 2 other people who this has happend to. Might be nothing and might purly be a bit of pot luck but i have my doubts over the site and have since stopped using it and sticking to things such as horses and football.

                  Great site however to use and is very fun.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  great games, great people, great rewards

                  I have made loads of money out of this site. At first i was playing bingo, but didn't win, the winner every 2 minutes was never me suprisingly enough. However they recently celebrated their birthday and gave me a £5 gift vouvher free of charge, so i played roulette, and did a double on losing method which i thought was logical and clever, i ended up winning £100's, and i now play ther 2p a card bingo, and have won twice paying out £25, and £50. I would reccomend the site to anyone as the customer service is excellent, and they are always there to help with any problems you may have when playing the games, and the money takes a maximum of 3 working days to leave your playing account and enter your bank account. I can't fault it, although i have never played in any of the other sites to know any different.
