British Jackpotjoy is quite different from the one.
There is no bingo at Jackpotjoy.
Jackpotjoy has the same owner as Vera&John
If you recognize yourself when you surf on jackpotjoy.se (make sure you don't end up on jackpotjoy.com, because it doesn't seem to link to the site), it's not strange. The site has the same owner as... Vera&John This also explains why both casinos have the same welcome bonus (which is not particularly good). There are, by the way, some ways to recognize casino sites where the same people are behind them.
In addition to the welcome bonus, you can also check out the layout of the site. Take Videoslots and Mr Vegas as an example. Two different owners, but the same people behind them. The sites look almost exactly the same. Another way is to check if exclusive games are available at the same casinos. LeoVegas And PixelBet doesn't seem to have anything to do with each other at first, but they always share the same exclusive slots - revealed!
You can recognize casinos that belong to each other in several different ways.
Check the Spelinspektionen's website if the owner is the same.
Check if several casinos have the same exclusive game.
The owner of both Jackpotjoy and Vera&John is Dumarca Gaming Ltd. They also own the casino InterCasino (which we will not write about in this article). Just like Vera&John, Jackpotjoy often has high RTP In their games. What we mean is that they usually don't lower the payout as some other casinos tend to do (Videoslots, cough cough).
Like so many other operators (i.e. the companies that own online casinos), Dumarca Gaming Ltd is located in Malta, and if we were to guess a reason, it is due to the low corporate tax in that country. That is, before the gambling regulation came into effect, as now there is an 18 percent tax that applies to all casino companies targeting players - regardless of where in the world they are located!
Bally's Corporation owns Dumarca and Jackpotjoy
Now it's getting a bit confusing. Because even though Dumarca owns Jackpotjoy, British Gamesys owns Dumarca! And Gamesys, in turn, is owned by Bally's Corporation, which is an American company. In fact, Bally's Corporation's acquisition of Gamesys took place as recently as October 2021. But what does this mess mean for you as a player? Not much, actually.
It is Dumarca Gaming ltd that is responsible for the Jackpotjoy, and the authority Spelinspektionen is responsible for the supervision of Dumarca Gaming ltd. Despite being owned by an American company, regulations still apply. The British original version of Jackpotjoy, on the other hand, is owned by Gamesys. The main difference between the and British sites is the focus on bingo in the UK.
Watch out for the welcome bonus at Jackpotjoy
Jackpotjoy is not a bad casino, but you should be careful with their welcome bonus. You will only receive 200 free spins on Fire Joker worth 50 cents each, in connection with your first deposit. In addition, there is a wagering requirement of x40 on the winnings from your free spins. As an example: if you win 100 USD on your free spins, you must wager 100 x 40 = 4,000 USD.
When you receive as little as 200 free spins worth 50 cents each, the winnings should be wager-free. For example, Paf gives new players 99 free spins after their first deposit, and the winnings from those 99 spins can be withdrawn immediately. We mentioned a bit about bingo above, and Jackpotjoy doesn't have any bingo at all! This is actually a bit strange considering that the British Jackpotjoy started its operations in 2001 with bingo as its main focus.
Skip the welcome bonus at Jackpotjoy.
No bingo at all at Jackpotjoy.
No betting either...
Even today, the British site primarily focuses on bingo. in UK, it's the usual slots and live casino all the way (no betting at Jackpotjoy). In a way, this is a bit boring because it means that Jackpotjoy doesn't differ much from its competitors (and forget about playing at British Jackpotjoy, as they don't accept players from United Kingdom).
It is a common problem for casinos to not be able to stand out from the crowd. Since no one is allowed to offer more than one bonus, the main competition is for games, and honestly, the selection is about the same at most casinos. Even at Jackpotjoy, you can find Starburst, Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, as well as jackpot games. Oh, and...
Does Jackpotjoy live up to its name?
That is to say, is the casino flooded with different jackpot games? Well, there isn't even a dedicated menu for jackpot games, which is disappointing in this context. If the casinos are so similar, their names should at least tell the player what they specialize in. But no. However, there are big progressive jackpot games like Mega Fortune, Mega Moolah, and Arabian Nights.
