We’ve been up to all sorts this year! We celebrated our biggest Prize Twister win to date, treated everyone to a guaranteed Prize Twister win on their next deposit to celebrate, released a spanking new podcast series on The OJO Show, welcomed two shiny new Masked Singer games, launched a brand-new TV and digital advertising campaign, and gave away 10 prize-packed time capsules all in the name of Safer Gambling.

On top of all that, we gave you not one, but two opportunities to grab free daily shots at winning cash prizes up to £1,000… for a very memorable 2022 indeed – read all about it for yourself with OJO’s Year in Brief…

PlayOJO’s Year in Brief:

January

January can be dry for more than one reason, so we eased gently into 2022 with some very handy tips on how to keep your New Year’s Resolutions. Let’s face it, we could all do some tips on that (mental note: make shorter list this time). Keeping things light and airy and to mark kiss a Ginger Day, we shared the top 6 most kissable ginger celebs we wouldn’t mind sharing a smooch with under the mistletoe with. Still think our ginger celebs have all that ginger gorgeousness going on? You be the judge…

February

February welcomed a new series of podcasts to our very own casino podcast, The OJO Show – this time all about slots. If you haven’t already done so, come and listen to our casino whizz, Dan Grant share all manner of tips and tricks from his expert knowledge on everything slot games.

Gotta share those sweet victory vibes.

It was time to share even more of those good vibes for Random Act of Kindness Day, where we gave away 1,000 Free Spins to players via OJO’s social platforms – all you had to do was say something lovely about OJO and we rewarded the first 100 comments with Free Spins… it was love all around 🥰

There was also some very exciting Masked Singer game news – the Masked Singer Riches Revealed slot had arrived at PlayOJO, with chances to win up to £50,000 in cash prizes! But the masked fun didn’t stop there, as we also welcomed the brand-new Masked Singer Slingo game, with a mahoosive £100,000 waiting to be unmasked.

May

We know you all love a good win story and May felt like the perfect time to announce our very latest stream of jackpot winners! We shared the leading moments up to the big wins, as well as the triumphant games that were responsible for them. Stay tuned for the latest big jackpot announcements: stories too good not to share with our OJO fam.

June

The season for tennis was upon us! And what better way to get the Wimbledon balls rolling than with our very own printable tennis bingo cards! You can find those, along with a very colourful selection of themed printable bingo cards right here at your fave casino blog.

And speaking of bingo, we went all out for National Bingo Day this year, with a full week of celebrations and perks, including 5 days of free bingo plus 3 daily jackpots.

But the biggest news of June was the launch of our brand-new TV and digital advertising campaign, starring our very own Madame OJO – PlayOJO’s wonderfully glamourous new ambassador of fun. No doubt you’ve seen the TV ad umpteen times, but if not you can catch our dazzling casino and bingo ads here.

July

The Women’s Euros wasn’t the only thing kicking off in July – it was also the month of our exclusive Hide & Seek game, guaranteeing everyone who participated a prize!  That’s right – available for the entire month of July and hosted by Madame OJO herself, everyone was guaranteed a prize of either Free Spins, Free Bingo Tickets, Prize Twister Spins, deposit offers or cash prizes up to £1,000 – and all they had to do was spend a tenner on any casino the previous day to take part. That good ole’ OJO feeling was felt far and wide.

Everyone has their fave emoji, right? Well, to mark World Emoji Day on 17th July, we set out to reveal the most-used emojis of 2022, and to see if there’d been much change since we probed the same question last year (and the year before that). Was there much emoji-movement over the last few years? Read Our Most Used Emoji Revealed to find out.

August

The flaming month of August delivered two of OJO’s all-time fave pet holidays: International Cat Day and National Dog Day. So in honour of our cute furry friends, we put together some of the funniest cat videos we could find, along with some very interesting facts you never knew about dogs. Who let the dogs out? Not us, I swear.

September

September also saw a milestone achievement for our casino podcast – The OJO Show, which had hit the 10,000 downloads mark. This also happened to coincide with International Podcast Day, and what better way to celebrate the power of the pod, eh? If you haven’t already, you can listen to the OJO Show on Spotify and Google Podcasts.

September also welcomed the new Masked Dancer TV series, which we celebrated with a dedicated bingo room and a daily free-to-play game called Match the Masks, offering chances to win up to £100 cash every single day. There were some victory dances going on that month!

October

October was an important month for casino players near and far, marking the annual Safer Gambling Week. This is a time for players everywhere to check in on their gambling habits and to familiarise yourselves with the services and tools we provide our players to encourage safer gambling.

November

Oh, there was plenty for us to remember this November. As World Cup football fever kicked off, so did PlayOJO’s very own ‘Spin & Score’ free game – your daily free shot at winning cash prizes up to £1,000! 

Spin and Score

But the November generosity didn’t stop there, as we gave away 10 prize-packed time capsules with our OJO Safer Gambling quiz. Each winner received a time-locked suitcase direct to their door, jam-packed with some mighty fine tech prizes and treats. Chrimbo certainly came early for these lucky quiz whizz’s.

December

To roll in the festive cheer and honour Christmas Jumper Day, the OJO Crew rose to the occasion with snaps of ourselves in our fave Christmas jumpers. Oh, we certainly had some unique contenders, and you should def take a a peek here in our Christmas Jumper Day blog if you haven’t seen them yet. Perfect bit of inspiration for next years’ festive knits.

Woweeee, what a year it’s been. If you think 2022 was jam-packed, you just wait to see what we have in store for you for 2023. Watch this space, folks…
