Emerald Bingo is a 90-ball offering from Jackpotjoy which has a couple of sibling jewel-themed rooms in Sapphire and Diamond Bingo. It’s also one of the well-established operator’s most popular offerings – and it’s not hard to see why.
Tickets are available from just pennies, there’s a lively online atmosphere with plenty of bingo buddies to chat to and some great HD graphics. And, with a bit of luck, you could be in for a big win!
How to play
Emerald is fun yet straightforward, a no-nonsense game that will suit all bingo lovers, regardless of previous playing experience, from, veterans to newcomers.
Prices of tickets vary from one game to another, and will also depend to an extent on the number of players in the room at that time, how many cards they’ve bought and at what price.
Buying tickets is simple – you’ll find the Buy Tickets button in the middle column of the page, which will take you directly to the purchasing screen. Just decide how many tickets you’re after, hit Confirm and you’re good to go.
The classic format of Emerald means there are essentially three prizes up for grabs – for filling in a single line, two lines or completing Full House ahead of any of the other players.
What’s more, you won’t even have to worry about marking off your own numbers as they’re called. Kick back and enjoy a bit of brilliant bingo banter while the automatic daubers do all the hard work for you.
For each Emerald Bingo ticket you buy, an element of the money spent on it will be added to the jackpot for the game. To take home the jackpot, you just have to fill in your card within a specific number of calls, a figure which varies from one game to another.
The chat feature
Again, this is really straightforward. The feature is there so you can enjoy some quality bingo banter and celebrate your wins with your fellow players or commiserate if you haven’t won this time. Just write your message in the box at the bottom of your chat screen.
Chat hosts are around to take care of players, and their words are in red type for easy identification. And, of course, you can natter with them too.
With Emerald, a series of mini-games can be played in between the main bingo rounds, for cash prizes, as a key part of the fun, and so that you’re always playing. Equally, there are similar awards in the chat room, adding to the interest and excitement of playing here.
Return to Player (RTP)
Jackpotjoy publishes the RTP or Return to Player for all games. (This is the sum paid to players relative to all betting on the games.)
In Emerald, as with all of the Jackpotjoy bingo games, it varies between 80.99% and 85.45%.
It’s true that Emerald doesn’t exactly reinvent the wheel as far as bingo is concerned. But if you love a good old-fashioned, traditional game, this one’s for you. Like its namesake jewel, it sparkles!
Join the ranks of winners like ‘Paul S, who won a tidy £1,179 jackpot from 5p tickets and told one review website: “I was in shock to see my balance increase by almost £1,200! I don’t think I believed I’d really won until the cheque arrived.”
