Jackpot Drops Launches At Paddy Power Bingo

Article Updated On 13th April 2021

Must drop jackpots have become a popular feature at many slots sites. These are progressive prizes that instead of running and running have fixed end points based on time or amount. Therefore you have the chance to win jackpots hourly, daily, weekly etc. This kind of feature has slowly started to appear within the bingo world. Jackpotjoy for example launched Powerbolts whilst Chit Chat have Must Drop Jackpots. Joining the bandwagon are Paddy Power Bingo with Jackpot Drops.

Jackpot Drops Bingo

Jackpot Drops is a 90 ball bingo room that you can find within the lobby area of Paddy Power Bingo. It's also available at it's sister site at Betfair. Games start from around 11am each day and are your basic 90 ball game. However the big difference between this room and others is that you have the chance to win 1 of 5 jackpots. Three of the jackpots are guaranteed sums whilst the other two, which include the Giant Jackpot are progressive and will continue to grow until they are won.

The Jackpot Drops

Below are the prizes you can win playing in Paddy Power's Jackpot Drops room.

  • Hourly 20 guaranteed every hour.
  • Daily - 100 to be won every day
  • Weekly 300 guaranteed jackpot every week
  • Monthly 5,000+ that must be won every month
  • Giant 10,000+ can be won on any game

The thing with these kind of jackpots is that they can drop at any time and on any game. Provided you've purchased a ticket then you could be the winner of any of the prizes. Note that in the very unusual event two jackpots drop at the same time to the same player then the biggest prize will be awarded. So if you won the Hourly and Daily at the same moment then the prize would be the Daily one. We guess that the Hourly one would then remain in play until it's won?

Jackpot Drops Strategy

Because it's a totally random event there isn't any real strategy involved when it comes to trying to win Jackpot Drops prizes. However because you know that the prizes must be won it's well worth keeping tabs on them especially as the hour, day, week etc comes to a close. For example if the hourly prize hasn't been won and there are just two rounds left then you know that the jackpot has to fall in one of those rounds. Therefore buying a ticket for both games would be a good strategy!

More Must Drop Bingo Jackpots?

Given the popularity of must drop jackpots in slots and that Paddy Power/Betfair are the latest to offer the format in bingo it's fair to say we expect more sites to follow suit. These Jackpot Drops games - along with Power Bolts at Jackpotjoy - mean that there's always a chance to play for 1000+ on a whole bunch of games. Whilst the smaller prizes are nice it's the bigger jackpots which really turn heads and make playing a bingo game that extra bit more exciting. Players don't have to wait for the usual end of the month specials and can just play as they normally do for the chance to win.

Apart from a few monthly specials there really aren't that many bingo games that offer big cash prizes. Tombola's Big Link games are probably the exception as are Jackpotjoy's Superlinks but you don't ever see promos like Wink's 100K JoyPots any more. Mecca Bingo in our view is ideally suited for this kind of feature as it also has sister brands Lucky Pants and Kitty to partner up with. Sites powered by Pragmatic Play such as PlayOJO, Mirror Bingo, Butlers and Crown could also benefit from a similar feature. Must Drop Bingo Jackpots could be just what online bingo needs to give it a much needed boost.
