How to Play Bingo for a Penny


It's a new year! We're officially in 2024, which means it's time to set those new year resolutions, dust off the old gym membership (or not – we won't tell anyone!) and put the rush of Christmas behind us.  

For bingo fans keeping a closer eye on their spending this January, we've got some wonderful news. Did you know we have a selection of penny bingo games available to play here at Jackpotjoy? That's right! Our members can join in all the bingo action from just 1p. Perfect for players looking to experience the joy of bingo without breaking the bank. 

How to play penny bingo

Playing penny bingo is simple. Become a member of Jackpotjoy and you'll gain access to our entire collection of online bingo games, where you'll soon spot our penny bingo titles. We have two fabulous penny bingo games available to choose from here at Jackpotjoy – one 75-ball version and one 90-ball version. So, there's something for every player to enjoy!  

The rules of our penny bingo games are just like standard online bingo rules, except you can place a wager from just 1p, so there aren't any complications involved. Just wager your penny and enjoy the bingo action. 

Speed Bingo

There are plenty of reasons why we love this game, not least because tickets start from 1p. If you're short on time and fancy grabbing a quick game of bingo, then we think Speed Bingo is perfect. After all, the name says it all!  

Just like in other 75-ball bingo games, the aim of the game is to be the first player to complete the winning pattern before anyone else. Pip the other players to first place and you could scoop an incredible prize. There's more, though. Dab a full house within a set number of bingo calls and you might even win the progressive jackpot! Who says you need to place big stakes to enjoy big bingo action? 

Tiki Bingo

Take a trip to Hawaii for a penny in our Tiki Bingo room, featuring a tropical theme and energetic soundtrack that offers a fabulous twist on the traditional 90-ball bingo game.  

Regulars at land-based bingo halls are likely to have the rules of 90-ball bingo down pat, but don’t worry if you're new to the game – it's super easy to pick up. Just dab off a whole line, two lines or even a full house before your fellow players to claim a prize. 

Tiki Bingo has a progressive jackpot too (just like Speed Bingo), making it a great option for penny bingo players looking for the chance to win big. Just sit back with a fresh cuppa and let the automatic daubers do their job – if your penny turns into a win, then we'll let you know! 

Looking for more budget bingo games?

There are plenty more budget bingo games to choose from here at Jackpotjoy. In fact, most of the games in our online bingo collection can be enjoyed from as little as 10p per ticket. For players looking for a bargain like Speed Bingo or Tiki Bingo, head on over to Emerald Bingo and Cloud Bingo, where tickets are going for 2p each.  

And don't forget about our free bingo games! We love to share the joy of bingo with our members, which is why we also offer the chance to play for free on selected games.  

Join in the chat for more chances to play

We love a good natter here at Jackpotjoy. Our chat rooms are a fabulous place to meet fellow players, enjoy a catch up and even play more games. Our chat hosts will announce random mini games throughout the day, which offer more chances to scoop a prize. The best part is that it's free to join our chat rooms! You can wager a penny or nothing at all – if you're a member of Jackpotjoy, you can jump right into the mini games. Just keep an eye on our bingo chat rooms for the chance to play along.  

We want everyone to experience the fun of bingo here at Jackpotjoy. That's why we have a range of exciting bingo games perfect for every player. So, whether you're looking for classic bingo or a game with a jackpot, you're bound to find something to suit you.
