Information about New Mega Reel Sites - May 2024


Since 2012, Jumpman Gaming have been leading the charge when it comes to rolling out reels ‘n’ wheels as welcome packages for bingo and slot sites.

Imitated by many, the concept of the reel, branded the Mega Reel by Jumpman Gaming, makes the random assignment of a welcome offer an exciting and engaging experience for anyone who plays at a Jumpman powered slots site.

What is the Mega Reel

You’ve probably seen the ads, ‘Spin The Mega Reel for 500 Free Spins‘, but let’s start with the basics. The Mega Reel is in essence a prize wheel, just like the ones that have been around for hundreds, if not thousands of years at carnivals and the likes.

The Mega Reel borrows the basic functionality of an old fashioned spinning wheel and marries it with the task of randomly assigning a welcome package (in the case of first time depositors) to new customers at a slots website. Clever stuff, really!

To save paying for a bunch of developers and designers, Jumpman could have simply revealed a players welcome package as soon as the player enters their card details, but that would be dull and the Mega Reel is infinitely more appealing.

The Mega Reel is made up of different segments offering mainly set bundles of bonus spins on selected slot games. In addition to the spins, you’ll also have the chance to win Amazon vouchers, not bad, eh?

What are the differences between the Mega Reel and Mega Wheel?

Those of you who’ve been around the track a few times when it comes to slots and bingo sites may have noticed that some Jumpman Gaming sites offer the Mega Reel whilst other present the Mega Wheel? No? Oh well, read on, you’re about to learn something.

The Mega Wheel outdates the Mega Reel and is generally allocated to the bingo focused sites in the Jumpman stable with the Mega Reel serving the slot sites.

The Mega Wheel, functions in pretty much exactly the same way as the Mega Reel, save for the fact that visually, it’s based on a spinning wheel as opposed to the sort of reel you’d find in a slot machine.

The other notable difference between these two tantalising devices is the range of delights that fill the segments. The subtle differences are that the Mega Reel offers its top prize as 500 spins on Starburst whereas the Mega Wheel boasts 500 spins on the ever popular Fluffy Favourites, although occasionally on a per brand basis, the slot games on offer vary. Other than that, this game of spot the difference has us out of ideas.

In addition to the Mega Reel and Wheel, the most eagle eyed of you way even have noticed the Loot Chest. We’ll save this one for another time but (**spoiler alert**) it’s basically another variation of the Mega Reel reserved for only one or two chosen Jumpman brands.

When do I get to spin the Mega Reel?

The first encounter you’ll have with the Mega Reel is when you join a Jumpman slots site. Once you’ve made your first time deposit (of at least £10), you will get your reel spin.

However, knowing a thing or two about customer retention, the team at Jumpman have made the Mega Reel available beyond the first deposit.

In fact, every time you make a further deposit (of at least £20), you’ll be given the chance to test your luck on the Mega Reels.

Not stopping there, Jumpman have also made the Mega Reel available to players who ‘achieve’ certain goals. Completing various actions as defined by the ‘Trophies’ page on any Jumpman Gaming site may fill you with immense satisfaction and may even unlock a further spin on the Mega Reel. It’s win-win, non-stop excitement.

How often are new Mega Reel sites released?

If you’d asked this question in 2018 or 2019, we’d have said about as regularly as the trains on the Northern Line.

However, over the last couple of years, the pace has slowed right down and we’ve actually noticed some brands closing altogether. Overall though, there have been a hand full of new brands in 2022.

2024 and beyond? We’d be guessing really, but with operators facing ever toughening rules (and bigger fines for noncompliance), it seems the perfect storm which lead to a few year long influx of new sites has well and truly ground to a halt.

Many Jumpman brands are owned by third party companies and where previously just about any newcomer could open a new brand, Jumpman are now been much more selective, electing to work with generally well known companies such as Reach PLC, leading to the re-launch of Mirror Bingo and the creation of OK Bingo, Express Wins, et al.

A Departure from the Mega Reel?

In 2022-2024, Jumpman Gaming brands, new and old are opting to ditch the Mega Reel in favour of offering deposit match bonuses.

In a similar fashion, many Jumpman Gaming brands have switched their welcome offer to free spins deals, but don’t despair, sites which offer free spins will usually offer the Mega Reel (or wheel) to those who wish to go on and make a first time deposit after claiming the free spins.
