Jumpman Bingo was never one of my favourites. Mainly due to the higher than average wagering rules, but also because their bingo games were always dead.
Hardly any players, even at peak time, meant prize money was always low and chat almost none-existant (or turned off completely).
It should have therefore come as no surprise that earlier this month they quietly abandoned their entire bingo network and replaced it with the new bingo software from Pragmatic Play.
What does this mean for players?
Well, if you visit any of the Jumpman bingo sites and locate the bingo lobby, you'll find suddenly there are a lot more rooms available with more players and larger prize money up for grabs.
New rooms such as Stars 'N' Stripes (75 ball), Boombox (80 ball) and Clock Work (90 ball) have been added alongside the various Bingo Millions games (technically more of a fixed-odds instant game rather than bingo).
The games are all networked as far as we can tell, so no unique standalone rooms for any specific sites. So if you wanted to play these games you could go to any Jumpman site or indeed any Nektan bingo site and you'll find the exact same games and rooms wherever you go.
The downside to anyone who actually enjoyed the old Jumpman bingo setup is that there is currently no free bingo on the new software. So this means no more big free money game at the end of the month.
But on the upside the software is excellent and I know they are actively developing new and interesting variants, such as Bingo Blast, so it is overall a welcome improvement to the Jumpman network.
