Hands and Decks
This is a fantastic deck-of-cards style bingo game. Play with the 52 cards in a deck, plus two Joker cards.
Buy one 'ticket' and you'll receive 9 cards from the deck. As the full deck is then dealt, match the cards appearing with those in your hand. Aim for a 'J' pattern in the cards to win the first prize and then to cover all cards within the hand to win the top prize for the hand.
There are two jackpots available in this game: the Joker jackpot that can be won by winning the winning hand in 16 cards or less and the progressive jackpot Super Joker Jackpot that can be won by winning the winning hand in 14 cards or less with the last card as the joker card.
This is an exciting game with some great prizes, and prices from as little as 20p.
Joker Jackpot is a whole new bingo experience presented in the style of a card game. With 54 cards to play and a Joker, who, for a change, is a character you'll be pleased to bump into, you would be crazy to miss out on all the excitement in this room. Joker Jackpot can be accessed via the bingo lobby and is open daily between 9am and 2am.
HANDS AND DECKS
In the Joker Jackpot game a hand is an individual grid of nine squares made up of three rows and three columns.
Each square contains a card so nine cards appear on each hand.
The price of a hand may vary depending on the game. When hands are available for purchase, the hand price is clearly published on the face of each hand, in the “Purchase Hands” pop-up window and at the top of the “Hand Area” of the bingo window.
In the Joker Jackpot game, a deck is a group of 6 hands. Every possible number from card in a standard deck including two joker cards (black and red) will appear on each full deck.
In Joker Jackpot, a hand is a ticket and a strip is a deck.
The prizes offered in each Joker Jackpot game have a minimum guaranteed payout but the actual prize is determined by the number of decks/hands purchased per game. The more decks/hands purchased, the bigger the prize!
There is one game type in play for Joker Jackpot with two separate prizes available.
Prize type 1 is the J pattern; the player who is the first to have all the cards called on the J pattern on a purchased hand will win the first prize.
Prize type 2 is the Full Hand; the player who is the first to have all the cards called on a purchased hand will win the second prize.
You will be a winner and will receive the current prize regardless of whether you have marked the cards on the winning hand. The Joker Jackpot game will automatically identify a win. Winners will be visibly published in Joker Jackpot and the Joker Jackpot Caller will make an announcement.
Two or more players can win/share a prize in Joker Jackpot (J Pattern or full hand), i.e. players’ may have hands which meet the prize criteria on the same card. A single player may also win a prize more than once too (this can only happen if the player purchased hands from other decks in such circumstances the cash prize will be split in equal proportions between the winners). Winnings will be deposited directly into the player's account.

Full Hand – when all cards on a single hand have been called (nine in total)
