Bingo lover Lia Louis checks out a revamped Jackpotjoy and is instantly hooked by it’s snazzy, welcoming wares

There's something a little bit special about Jackpotjoy. From the word go, this bingo site has stood out like a sore thumb with it's unique, beautiful layout, futuristic bingo rooms and lavish ream of jackpots, and now, Jackpotjoy has appointed TV icon Barbara Windsor as their ‘Queen of Bingo’ to help promote their new, contemporary design and brand new bingo room.

Jackpotjoy is practically somewhat of a bingo haven. The bingo lobby is literally a shrine to all things bingo, and in design, an utter triumph. All available bingo rooms are laid out in a neat informative list, and using a set of virtual tabs that run along the top of the window users can easily jump to different bingo game types. A helpful touch next to each bingo room link is a set of details, such as ticket price, the jackpot up for grabs and the amount of players; again, making it extremely easy for you to find a bingo game that suits you down to the ground.

Bingo Royale has been heavily plugged in magazines and on our screens lately in a new advert starring ‘Babs’ herself who cackles and waves her way through a crowd of bingo lovers sporting an over the top, pantomime-like dress, and it's a cartoon version of her that lives in this spanking new bingo room.

A 90 ball bingo room complete with an elegant layout and a playful piece of royal sounding background music, Bingo Royale gives players the chance to scoop an extra prize once the bingo game has finished. Randomly after the game has played through the classic 1 line, 2 line and full house rounds, a wonderfully entertaining bonus game named The Royal Pardon starts. Barbara's cartoon doppelganger appears with two white fluffy pooches – one of which barks the number of balls are going to be called after the bingo game. This outlandish bonus game can offer up to five extra balls, which are called after the full house is won. If the extra numbers called turn your bingo ticket into a winner, you'll scoop an extra prize.

Bingo Royale is certainly worth the hundreds of thousands of pounds spent on marketing, as since its launch, it's become a firm favourite with scores of Jackpotjoy members, and as bingo tickets range between 10p and £1, the room itself attracts a wide, varied audience.

Although unique, Bingo Royale isn't the first room at Jackpotjoy to offer a randomly triggered bonus round, as The Price Is Right Bingo – a 75-ball bingo room with a handful of entertaining bonuses – was launched over three years ago.

Jackpotjoy certainly know how to create a bingo game with a bizarre, inspiring twist, but they also know exactly how to construct a simple, nostalgic game of bingo where the only added futuristic extra is the size of a jackpot.

Diamond is an impeccable example of this. A glitzy and slightly girlie online bingo room doused in pinks and lilacs, Diamond presents endless 90-ball bingo games that cost 50p a pop.

Like all Jackpotjoy bingo rooms, buying tickets and navigating is exceedingly easy. Clicking the 'Buy' button will take you to a window that allows you to buy ticket for the upcoming bingo games as well as games scheduled throughout the day, and tickets can be purchased in multiples of six or separately by using the nifty plus and minus buttons.

Jackpotjoy certainly lives up to its name, as every bingo room has it's own ever-growing progressive jackpot, and it's the Diamond bingo room that currently has the most juicy prize. At over a staggering £14,000, players can bag this exceptional prize by claiming the full house within an achievable 38 calls – certainly a tremendous return on a reasonable 50p bingo ticket bet.

With such a fruitful, abundant bingo lobby, it's surprising to see that Jackpotjoy is also home to an absolutely staggering range of slot games and although there are some gorgeous jackpots up for grabs within the bingo sector, the slots are where all of the eye popping, mouth watering prizes are – especially within the rustic, exotic Tiki Temple.

When playing this game, you are invited to choose from a 1p, 5p, 10p and 20p line bet, and it's when you select the 20p option that you open the door to an astonishing progressive jackpot currently boasting a prize of over £200,000.

A relatively new 20-line slot game that comes with two bonus rounds, a frequently appearing wild icon and a scatter bonus, Tiki Temple comes with rainforest themed reel images, including exotic flowers, monkeys and coconuts, and provides straight forward pay outs up to 10,000 times your stake.

Like everything at Jackpotjoy, a high level of attention to detail is extremely apparent and in Tiki Temple, it's visible from the animated flowers that decorate the pay table, to the exuberant flawlessly animated jackpot bonus round. Triggered by spinning three monkey temple pictures, the bonus round takes you through a number of scenes until you are faced with choosing one of many chests. In Tiki Temple, gone are the days where five matching icons are required to scoop a massive amount. In this slot, if you manage to choose the chest containing the jackpot amount, you'll walk away with hundreds of thousands of pounds – it's really that simple!

A long standing jackpot slot at Jackpotjoy that has been responsible for making hordes of slot lovers thousands richer is Tycoons Treasure – a traditional three-reel slot game that comes with just 12 winning combinations.

Designed in a glittery, nostalgic design of a classic pub slot, Tycoons Treasure can be played for just 25p per spin and comes with a current jackpot of over £6,000. This can be won by spinning three icons of the top-paying icon of a moustachioed, top-hat-wearing tycoon!

Entering Jackpotjoy with money in your balance is like walking into your favourite shop with a fist full of twenties – you're filled with excitement and the joyful buzz of not knowing where to go and what to play first. With such an assortment of stake amounts and an enormous wealth of games, Jackpotjoy appeals to bingo players, slot lovers and jackpot chasers alike.
