Top highlights: Fun pirate theme; run by the trusted Nektan (Gibraltar) Limited
VIP or loyalty programme: Yes
Other offerings: None
Many of us throughout our lives have occasionally fancied being a pirate, riding the high seas, and while the pirate-themed Jackpot Jones doesn't technically enable you to do that, it might be the next best thing. The site was established in 2018 and is run by Nektan (Gibraltar) Limited, which is one of the most familiar names in the online gambling world.
The assortment of promos and bonuses on offer at a site like this is likely to be one of the main factors that entice you to sign up. That's why it doesn't greatly surprise us that Jackpot Jones has gone as far as it has to serve up a tempting selection of promotions, which – depending on exactly when you visit the site – typically includes the likes of:
We have to be a little critical of Jackpot Jones here – yes, it may have still been a very new site at the time we wrote this review, but we only counted just over 100 games overall, across all categories. That's not a hugely generous selection compared to rivals that so often provide more than 500 games each, and while the range of slots may seem fair enough, it does mean there is only one roulette game on offer here, as well as just a single blackjack title.
Nonetheless, the games that Jackpot Jones does offer are good ones, and encompass such intriguing titles as:
Jackpot Jones unfortunately lacked a downloadable mobile app at the time of typing, but it did have a smartphone-optimised site; to see it, all that you have to do is navigate to it directly through your device's web browser. There, you will be able to experience beautifully mobile-ready versions of such games as Bonanza Megaways, Vikings Go Berzerk, Blackjack and more.
While the main Jackpot Jones site isn't the most graphically stunning we've ever seen when accessed via a desktop computer, it does look better on the smaller screen of a mobile handset or tablet. It uses a largely grey and red colour scheme and incorporates all of the well-organised navigational menu options that make it a functional rather than spectacular place to play casino games.
It's a slightly different story as far as the games themselves are concerned, however. They're provided by an assortment of leading casino game developers, including NetEnt, NextGen and others, so you can be sure of a game play experience that is fun, vibrant and colourful in the case of the slots, and studious and realistic as far as the slots and roulette titles are concerned.
Jackpot Jones seeks to distinguish itself from the pack in part through its use of the aforementioned pirate theme – its logo even including a pirate's cutlass – although there's little sign of this theme having had much influence on the rest of the site's offerings. We also liked the low wagering requirements here compared to some rivals.
While the Jackpot Jones VIP scheme is invite-only, if you play sufficiently often on the site and gamble enough of your hard-earned, there’s a strong chance that you’ll be asked to join.
In fact, there are four levels of VIP experience here – Silver, Gold, VIP Premier and VIP Elite – with ever-escalating levels of perks, such as priority customer services access or a personal account manager, a VIP welcome cash reward, enhanced VIP promotions, a VIP anniversary bonus and much more.

Anti-money laundering (AML) rules mean you can expect your money to be paid back to you through the same payment method that you used to deposit. An exception to this at Jackpot Jones is Boku, which doesn’t allow withdrawals back to the user’s mobile provider. So if you deposit using Boku, you’ll need to register another payment option on your account or request a bank transfer.

Jackpot Jones is licensed by the below two entities – the first one for customers in Great Britain, and the second one as far as all other customers are concerned.
We can’t look past certain obvious omissions at Jackpot Jones – you won’t find a single live game here, for example, and the range of games in general is hardly on a par even with that of many other sites of a similar age.
However, we do like the strong assortment of promotions and bonuses here, as well as the fact that the site draws upon the offerings of several respected casino game software providers. The pirate theme’s fun too, even if it’s also easily forgotten once you’ve got used to the site.
Sign up to Jackpot Jones now, and you might just be helping yourself soon to the kind of treasures that would make any proud pirate jealous.
According to the statutory British gambling regulator, the Gambling Commission, “Safe and responsible gambling comes from an industry that takes care of its customers, customers who are empowered with the knowledge to manage their gambling and a regulator that ensures the consumer is at the heart of everything we do.” The information contained here is intended to address the first two of these criteria. As we promote the services of gambling providers on this site, we believe it is important that our customers are made aware of the risks that can be associated with gambling, as well as information about where they can find further advice and support should they require it.
