If you’re a fan of online gaming, chances are you’ve come across Jumpman Gaming sites at one point or another. This well-known provider has made something of a name for itself in the iGaming industry since its inception in 2009, operating an expansive network of bingo and slot sites. Read on as we take a look at the company’s back-story, while also exploring its evolution.
Jumpman Gaming was established in Guernsey by a group of industry experts, who saw an opportunity to create fresh, innovative gaming solutions. Within a relatively short period, the licences were granted by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, soon followed by the Gambling Commission. As a result, Jumpman has access to one of the most lucrative gambling jurisdictions of all; the UK.
The company cut its teeth in the online bingo vertical where it created the 15 Network – a user-friendly platform featuring traditional bingo variants such as 90-ball and 75-ball games. To create an engaging, social experience for its users, Jumpman integrated chat rooms and side-games as well as some decent promotions to complement its bingo games. The network proved a huge hit.
As Jumpman Gaming continued to grow, it began turning its attention to online slot games, with the introduction of the Wheel of Slots network in 2015. Although essentially a bingo-based venture, the actual promotions rewarded players with slot spins. The following year, Jumpman unveiled a dedicated slots network signalling a dramatic change of approach. Four years later, Jumpan retired its bingo product, eventually opting to go with Pragmatic Play’s bingo software.
Collaborating with top software providers like NetEnt, Microgaming, and Eyecon, the company started to curate an impressive library of slot games. Players across its network were able to enjoy popular titles of the time including Starburst, Fluffy Favourites and Rainbow Riches. This library has since increased to well over 600 slot games.
Along with its bingo and slots network, Jumpman also set up a white label solution for third party providers. Considered best-in-class by many industry insiders, the package has been honed and developed over the years. Today the service includes a comprehensive collection of big-brand slots, a payment processing platform, customer support and a robust back-office system. More than 200 online slot sites and bingo sites are now powered by this ubiquitous white label framework.
Jumpman has managed to create a lasting impact on the iGaming sector, particularly in the UK. Its white label service is very well-thought of, while its slots network feature remains popular. So there’s no doubting the progress made since 2009. But there’s still some room for improvement, especially when it comes to promotional variety which leaves a lot to be desired. In fact, this is a major source of complaint from a lot of players – the Mega Reels incentive being a case in point. And while there have been efforts by certain Jumpman operators to differentiate their incentives, most still rely on standardised promotions.
The launch of new Jumpman sites has slowed somewhat as well. Yet, there has been talk of the provider branching into non-traditional games. This was highlighted in October 2022 when a major deal was struck with FunFair Games. The partnership saw Jumpman integrate an extensive portfolio of ‘non-traditional’ titles including game-show and multiplayer games. So it looks like Jumpman may be looking to diversify its portfolio – the addition of a new casino category on its white label front-end lends weight to this theory.
Whatever the case may be, Jumpman finds itself in a good position, thanks to an award-winning white label framework and an expansive operator network upon which it serves more than 600 big-brand slots. While there are bigger more successful brands, Jumpman has carved out a lucrative niche for itself. The future therefore looks bright.
