Pretty shoddy web design on this site, or should I say sites - because jackpotjoy.com serves a whole range of betting websites with the same games, such as Ryan Air and Russel Grant. Has a good range of games - slots, instant wins, kenos, bingo, and you can play them from as little as 20p. When you first join, they match the amount you deposit, which is great, but does encourage you to bet more frivolously. Also, the first session of betting you do will be easier than any other subsequent time- deliberately to get you hooked I think. As you win bigger, games like Deal or No Deal begin to go against you almost immedately so it becomes harder and harder to win. Also when you first join, you have to deposit a minimum of £10, and can only withdraw to your bank account or to you by cheque if you have made £75 worth of bettings. (This actually sounds more than it is, because with an initial £10, you can end up betting money worth £75 without losing your initial capital). The transactions are quick and easy and there is good email correspondence and support available. The website features a quite annoying msn style instant messenger for users which appears on the right hand side of the game screen. the members usually talk about everything other than the games and use colours like fluorecent pink and green, which becomes quite distracting with constant movement. This can be switched off, but has to be switched off individually for every game played. A positive is that you can play for free using 'points' that you can then use to buy raffle tickets for real prizes like games consoles and tvs. Overall a good sight, if a bit addictive!
