Wink bingo has a large selection of jackpot bingo games to choose from. This article outlines these games both guaranteed and progressive – most guaranteed jackpot games have prebuys available so you can buy tickets in advance and not miss out on the chance of the jackpot even if you won’t be at your computer when the game runs! Read more below about Wink bingo’s jackpot games. You can also check out the Wink bingo site by clicking here to get to the Wink bingo games page and clicking on the coverall jackpots and/or the progressive jackpots tab.
Guaranteed jackpots are bingo games where if the jackpot is won a set amount is paid out and it doesn’t change, lower or higher. The trigger for the jackpot is very often a ‘coverall’ (all squares matched) in 75 ball bingo, or a full house (again all squares matched) in 90 ball bingo. This is the case with the Wink guaranteed jackpots and so they call them ‘coverall’ jackpots, although for some 90 ball bingo ‘coverall’ jackpot games there are prizes for one and two lines as well.
Pre-buys are available on all guaranteed jackpot games, you can get these as indicated in the listings below – usually from the game room itself at any time before the next game runs. To sign up for Wink bingo to take part in any of these jackpot games click here to get to the Wink bingo site and sign up there.
Jackpot games are only available to funded players, the winner is the first to coverall but if there is more than one winner the prize is shared. The prizes should be credited into the winner’s account right after the game has finished.

On the Hour Sliding Coverall – 75 ball bingo
This games plays every evening from 7pm until midnight, on the hour. If you get the coverall and bingo in 25 to 48 calls you win £500. As the number of calls goes up the jackpot prize for the coverall goes down.
I do try and check the information on this page fairly often but do check yourself as to the prizes and so on in the bingo room itself to make sure they haven’t changed!
The game plays in the Hangout daily at 7pm, 8pm, 9pm, 10pm, 11pm & midnight as mentioned above, cards are £1 each and you can buy between 1 and 48 of them per game. You cannot prebuy cards for this game, you have to be in the room and buy them as each hourly game comes round.
Progressive jackpots are ones that increase until they are won, then they reset. So there is no guarantee the jackpot will be won, but every time it isn’t won the jackpot prize or prize pool gets bigger. This means that the prizes for progressive jackpot games can get very large indeed! There will be a trigger criterion, a certain pattern or a coverall/full house reached within a certain number of calls. This call number is set low enough that it doesn’t happen often, but it is still possible to get. When a progressive jackpot is won it will reset as a certain amount is kept back as a ‘seed’ amount to be going forward with. This starting amount is still worth winning.
The current progressive jackpot amounts can be seen at the top of all game rooms as you are playing the games for which the jackpot applies.
Moneyball – 75 ball bingo
You win this progressive jackpot by being the first to bingo on the special Moneyball pattern (which has 12 squares to daub), and doing it in 34 calls or fewer. If the Moneyball pattern is hit in 35 calls or more the jackpot isn’t won and will grow for the next game, and so on. You will still get the prize for the specific game if you get the bingo in 35 balls or more. The progressive jackpot resets at £250 after it is won.
This game will play 3 times an hour in The Hangout from 7pm to midnight every day, and randomly now and again during the day time. It plays at 15, 30 and 45 minutes past the hour. The Hangout can be found under the 75 ball tab, and the current Moneyball jackpot is indicated at the top of the room as you play.
Full House – 90 ball bingo
The 90 ball progressive jackpot is available on all 90 ball bingo games at Wink! To win the progressive cover your card (i.e. get the Full House) in 37 calls or fewer, and you will get the specific jackpot for that game as well as the progressive. If you get the full house in 38 calls or more then you just get the specific jackpot, and the progressive keeps growing.
The progressive jackpot for the 90 ball games resets at £100, and the current amount can be seen at the top of all 90 ball bingo rooms.
