How does a bingo Jackpot work?

Whether in land-based bingo or online, the term Jackpot refers to a special prize that is the largest possible on offer for a specific game. While other prizes for the Line or Full House are guaranteed to be won in every game, the jackpot prize isn’t.

Online bingo jackpot prizes vary from game to game and site to site, and there are several different types of bingo Jackpots to play for too. The question of how to get the Jackpot on online bingo is another thing entirely…

How to win the Jackpot on bingo

While there's no magic answer to knowing exactly how to get the Jackpot on online bingo, we can certainly help you with some helpful tips and tricks. Firstly, get to grips with the game itself by learning all about bingo and the bingo calls. The more familiar you are with these, the more confident you'll be in your approach.

If playing in a classic bingo hall, it's sensible to seek out the best seat in the house with few distractions. Follow this philosophy when playing online by settling down somewhere that will give you the best chance of concentrating on the bingo calls. One tactic could involve using our auto-dabber tool so that you never miss a number.

You should also consider the number of players in your game as the mathematical odds are more in your favour when fewer people are playing. When you play is as important as where you play – get to know when games are busier to make each one count.
