Jackpotjoy has been carrying out some crazy stunts this year, including sailing a 50 foot high yellow plastic duck down the Thames. At the time there did not seem to be any apparent reason for this except ‘for the Jackpotjoy of it’ which is the new catchphrase and mantra of the site.
Now it seems that what Jackpotjoy may have been doing is setting itself up as the ideal zany fundraising partner for Red Nose Day 2013. It has just been announced that Jackpotjoy Bingo is one of the official sponsors of this year’s event and that they have set themselves the huge task of raising £200,000 for the charity by 31st March.
Online bingo players at Jackpotjoy that choose to play in its exclusive Red Nose Day 90 ball bingo room will be able to contribute in two ways. There is the standard 90 ball bingo game and a special themed scratchcard available as the mini game in the room. Both offer great prizes to players – with up to £10,000 payouts on the scratchcard alone, depending on the stake chosen to play.
All profits from each and every bingo ticket and scratchcard sold go to Comic Relief. With £26,000 having been raised already, between 1st February and 7th February and the games being available until 31st March it looks like the generous and big hearted players at Jackpotjoy are likely to smash the £200,000 target in fine style.
If you want to help out this good cause and avoid having to sit in a bath of custard or cold beans and do it while enjoying some of the best online bingo games around, take advantage of the current 250% first deposit bonus that Jackpotjoy is offering new players and do your bit there instead.
