Jumpman Gaming Limited Information
Who are Jumpman Gaming Limited?
Calling a casino site or a casino operator “the biggest” or “the best” in any department is an entirely subjective opinion, but there’s a strong argument to say that there isn’t a bigger white-label casino operator that Jumpman Gaming in the iGaming industry. We’re not just talking about the domestic scene here in the UK but in the entire world. There are more than two hundred casinos and iGaming sites on the Jumpman Gaming Limited platform, and Jumpman itself only directly operates around a third of them. The rest were made for, paid for, and operated with or on behalf of the company’s many, many white-label business partners.
Considering how many slots sites Jumpman Gaming Limited operates in the here and now, you’d probably be surprised to find out that when the company started, it was more interested in online bingo than it was in slots. Then again, there are quite a few things about the history of this Guernsey-based casino network company that might surprise you. Let’s take a look under the Jumpman Gaming bonnet.
The History of Jumpman Gaming Limited
Jumpman Gaming Limited was incorporated in 2009 but spent the entirety of that year planning its entry into the iGaming market. For a company that’s grown to such size, it started surprisingly slowly. According to the official Jumpman Gaming company website, it’s the “fastest-growing” casino network in the business, with more than one hundred active brands. All that tells us is that it’s been a while since anybody bothered to update the website. In 2010, the company made its first move, but that first move wasn’t an iGaming site. Instead, it was a single bingo game called Oh My Bingo. It still provided a platform, though, and by the end of 2012, there were six iGaming sites on the Jumpman Gaming Limited platform, and the ball had begun to roll in terms of momentum.
2016 was a big year for the company, as it launched an in-house development studio called Jumpman Slots. In theory, this should have reduced the company’s dependence on external providers for games to stock its iGaming sites with. In practice, things haven’t really worked out that way. Jumpman Slots is yet to come up with a smash hit that’s captured the imaginations of players, and the overwhelming majority of the slots and games you’ll find at Jumpman Gaming casinos still come from those same third-party providers.
Expanding the Repertoire
If you’ve ever played at any of Jumpman Gaming Limited’s casino sites before, you’ll know there are a few things that all of them have in common. We’re not talking about the designs of the sites, although they can often be very samey thanks to the distinctive template that the company uses when making casinos for its white-label partners. We’re talking about the bonuses and reward schemes that exist at the casinos, which include Jumpman’s “trophies.” The more trophies a player has, the better the quality of the rewards and promotions they become eligible for. They’ve been around since 2017 and were fairly unique when they were introduced, but have since been copied by quite a few other operators. Loot Chest welcome bonuses, which are another common feature across the range, were introduced for the first time the following year.
For a long time, Jumpman Gaming Limited rallied against the inevitable by resisting the urge to introduce live dealer games and live game shows, preferring to stick with its portfolio of slots, table game simulators and bingo games. As more and more of its rivals started introducing live games, though, it became clear that Jumpman would have to change its stance if it didn’t want to be left behind. That finally happened in 2019 with the introduction of the first live dealer games to the Jumpman catalogue. Since then, the company has even introduced a few exclusive live games of its one, embracing a format that it once solidly rejected.
Read all about it
Most of Jumpman Gaming Limited’s casinos are, without wanting to be rude about it, much of a muchness. They look the same, contain the same games, offer the same rewards, and largely provide the same iGaming experience. There are a few exceptions, though, and those exceptions are Jumpman’s “star name” brands. Being such a trusted name means that the operator has been able to attract some big-name customers, and those customers include several of the UK’s biggest daily newspapers.
Newspapers that have official iGaming sites with Jumpman Gaming include the Daily Express (Express Wins), the Daily Star (Star Wins), and the Daily Mirror (Mirror Bingo). There are a few other officially-licensed or sponsored brands on the Jumpman Gaming network, and the presence of these brands helps to reinforce the method that Jumpman is a big-time iGaming company that deserves to be taken seriously.
Jumpman Gaming Limited and the UKGC
Players who choose to play at Jumpman Gaming Limited’s casinos can do so safely in the knowledge that they’re covered by all the protections that come with a UK Gambling Commission licence. The licence that Jumpman holds with the regulator is number 39175 and was awarded in late 2014. It covers every single one of the operator’s 200+ casino and iGaming brands, but unfortunately, the licence isn’t a clean one.
In May 2022, the UK Gambling Commission announced the results of a regulatory review of Jumpman Gaming’s operations. The regulator found multiple failures in the operator’s processes, including those which are aimed at protecting vulnerable people, preventing money laundering, and promoting safer gambling. Jumpman wasn’t handed a formal warning or a formal fine, but consented to a public statement being issued regarding the failures, agreed to divest funds generated by rule breaks and made a payment of £500,000 in lieu of a fine. At the time the penalty was announced, the UK Gambling Commission noted that Jumpman had already taken remedial action. There’s been no recorded recurrence of the issues since, and Jumpman Gaming will be very much hoping to keep it that way.
The Top Jumpman Gaming Casinos
Mirror BingoWe mentioned Mirror Bingo during our overview of Jumpman Gaming Limited as a casino operator above. The similarities between the various casinos and iGaming sites on this platform make it difficult to state that any one of them is definitely a “flagship site,” but the size, popularity and public profile of Mirror Bingo mean that it attracts more players than arguably any other iGaming site that Jumpman offers. It’s not quite on the same level as Sun Bingo when it comes to popularity, but then the Daily Mirror isn’t on the same level of popularity as The Sun, so that makes sense. As one of the biggest iGaming sites on the platform, Mirror Bingo has one of the most generous welcome promotions that Jumpman is able to conjure; five hundred free spins for new players who sign up and make a first deposit of at least £10 into their new Mirror Bingo account. The associated wagering requirements, however, are brutal, coming in at more than double the UK average. Regrettably, that tends to be the case right across the entire Jumpman Gaming range, so while it’s annoying, it’s not something we can hold Mirror Bingo exclusively liable for.
Britain’s Got Talent GamesYou don’t have to be a big fan of reality television to know what Britain’s Got Talent is. It’s one of the biggest shows on British television and has recently returned to screens after a couple of years away. Britain’s Got Talent Games, which is shortened to BGT Games in the site’s URL, is like Mirror Bingo in that it’s another of Jumpman Gaming’s licenced iGaming sites. It does a good job of working with the intellectual property it’s been given, with several hallmarks of the TV show present on the homepage, including the big red Xs and the golden buzzer. BGT games is able to make a boast that not too many of its sister sites are able to make – it comes with a few exclusive games based on its theme. The most popular of them is the official Britain’s Got Talent Slingo game, which is prominently featured on the casino’s homepage. We stress the word “casino” because while the word “games” appears in the iGaming site’s name, it’s solidly a slots and Slingo-based site, lacking the bingo games that you’ll find at plenty of Jumpman’s other sites. It may not offer anything different, but it’s still one of the operator’s higher-profile casinos.
Space WinsSpace Wins is the most popular of the Jumpman Gaming casinos that don’t have official licences or connections with well-known media entities. Looking at the homepage of the casino, it isn’t too hard to understand why. It does a good job with its outer-space theme, with a cartoonish background and an animated background to bring the casino to life. As we’ve said a couple of times now, not many of the Jumpman Gaming casinos are capable of doing things that the others don’t because of the limitations of the template that they’re made with – but Space Wins does. When new players join Space Wins and open an account, they can claim five free spins on Starburst, which is a thematically perfect choice of slots game for the casino. Yes, five spins isn’t many, and yes, the wagering requirements attached to anything that you might be fortunate enough to win from those spins are still horrendous, but it’s easier to deal with terms and conditions like those when you’re not paying for the privilege. Not many of the Jumpman Gaming casinos give something away for nothing, so Space Wins stands out from the crowd purely because it does.
Wild West WinsWild West Wins has been on the World Wide Web for quite a while now but has only become popular in recent years. We think we know why. The Western genre was, for quite a long time, unpopular with audiences. We’re not just talking about online casinos here – the genre has long since disappeared from cinemas, and there’s no sign of it coming back any time soon. However, there’s been a significant change in the world of gaming – and it’s all down to Rockstar Games and its iconic “Red Dead Redemption” franchise. The games have millions of fans, and they’ve led to a surge in the popularity of Western-themed casino games and Western-themed casinos like this one. We said when we were talking about Space Wins that not many of the Jumpman Gaming Limited casinos offer “something for nothing,” but Wild West Wins makes us look like liars. There are twenty no-deposit free spins on Cowboys Gold to be had when people sign up for this casino as a newcomer, which makes it more generous than Space Wins, even if the casino itself isn’t quite as pretty. You’ll find all the same games here, though – and, of course, all the same unpleasant wagering requirements.
Express WinsAlthough both Mirror Bingo and Express Wins have connections to British newspapers, Mirror Bingo is more popular than Express Wins is. That’s probably related to the gulf in readership between the Daily Mirror and the Daily Express, which has seen its number of readers dwindle alarmingly in recent years. We can’t help but wonder what that means for the long-term future of Express Wins, but for now, it’s still up and running. The design and style of Express Wins reflect the design and style of the Daily Express itself – it’s blue, conservative, and a little old-fashioned. Try not to hold that against it, though, because it offers new players the chance to win up to a 1000% matched deposit when they sign up. The chances of actually landing the bonus are down to the spin of a wheel of fortune, but the chance exists. Unusually for an officially-licensed Jumpman Gaming casino, Express Wins doesn’t offer any bingo games. Considering the makeup of the newspaper’s readership, that’s quite a surprise. It has just as many slots as any of the operator’s other casinos, though – roughly one thousand in total.
