How to Play Online Bingo for Free


If you haven't already guessed by now, here at Jackpotjoy we're big fans of bingo. A wonderfully simple game, bingo is the perfect (to us, at least!) combination of light-hearted fun and fierce competitiveness. You can enjoy a catch up with friends while trying to beat each other to a jackpot win – what's not to like?!  

As a dedicated online bingo site, we've even turned our passion for bingo into a full-time job. We've got to say, turning up every day to share the joy of bingo is an incredible feeling. But what makes an even better feeling? Sharing the joy for free!  

That's right – we offer the chance for our members to play bingo for free when they sign up to Jackpotjoy. 

Grab yourself a comfy chair and keep reading to find out how you could enjoy a free dab for yourself.  


Check out our free bingo games 

We have two dedicated free bingo games available to play here at Jackpotjoy: Play Off Palace Daily and Play Off Palace Weekly. If you're wondering how often these games run, then the clue is in the name! Play Off Palace Daily is our free bingo game played at 8.45pm every single day, while Play Off Palace Weekly is hosted just once per week on Sundays at 9.15pm. 

To get your hands on free tickets for Play Off Palace games, you'll need to join a qualifying game of Sapphire Bingo or Session Bingo. These are easy to spot – just look for the 'PP' symbol. 

Scoop a win (one line, two lines or a full house – any of these will do) in your chosen qualifying game and we'll reward you with six free tickets for Play Off Palace Daily and six free tickets to Play Off Palace Weekly! That's a total of 12 free bingo tickets. Pretty good, right?  

Don't forget to set your reminders if you're eyeing up a spot in the evening's Play Off Palace Daily game. Tickets need to be won by 7.45pm to be valid for the same day, otherwise they'll have to wait until tomorrow's game. Just remember to claim them at least 30 minutes before the start of the game so you don't miss out on the free bingo action! 

Both of these fabulous (if we do say so, ourselves) games are exclusive to Jackpotjoy, which means the rooms are only open to our members. That's an easy enough problem to solve, though. Just sign up and complete the registration process to be in with a chance to play. Which leads us nicely on to another way you can enjoy some free bingo… 

Don’t forget about your welcome bonus 

To start your bingo experience off with a bang, we like to welcome all our newbies with a special bonus of £50 in bingo tickets*! All you need to do is become a Jackpotjoy member, deposit and play £10 on any of the incredible games on our site, and we'll drop your free tickets into your account.  

Then it's just a question of choosing which online bingo game to play first! Our personal favourite is Superlinks Bingo, but you can also check out more of our picks for the inside scoop on the top bingo games available. 

Look out for B1GOF promotions 

We love a bargain here at Jackpotjoy, and B1G1F is a classic. As if our incredible free-to-play bingo games weren't enough, we also run regular promotions throughout the month, including buy one get one free bingo tickets.

The exact number of free tickets up for grabs can change. Some days it's B1G1F, others it's B2G1F and sometimes it's a whopping B6G6F. Keep an eye on the promotions area of your account to find out the latest bingo offer available.  

Invite a friend to play bingo with 

Know someone who would love to join the Jackpotjoy community? Don't be shy - invite them along! We'll have a fabulous Refer a Friend scheme here, which will reward you with £20† every time you invite a friend that successfully signs up and meets the initial wagering requirements.  

Up to five invites are available to each of our members, meaning there is a potential for you to pocket £100. Withdraw your cash reward or use it in any of our bingo games – the choice is yours. 

Convert your Joy Points 

Make the most of our dedicated loyalty scheme to convert wins into cash. Designed to boost the 'joy-factor' of your winning moment, a Joy Point worth 1p is awarded for every £5 you win on a bingo game or every £20 you win on any other game at Jackpotjoy (apart from Craps)^.  

You can convert your collection of Joy Points at any point. Just submit your request and watch the cash value appear in your account, ready for you to play with.  

More low-cost ways to play 

Missed out on tickets to Play Off Palace? We have plenty of budget bingo games available to play instead! Browse through our penny bingo games to experience bingo action from as little as (you guessed it!) 1p, or join the Emerald Bingo room, where tickets can be bought for 2p each.  

Most of our online bingo games can be enjoyed from as little as 10p per ticket, making Jackpotjoy an incredible place for bingo fans looking to play without breaking the bank. Just sign up to get started.
