Jackpotjoy uk sitechat hosts

Four years Ive been on this site 4years!!, I happened to become close friends with a host on Jackpotjoy and she revealed a few secrets not a lot or any players know. Firstly:
When a chicken appears as a chat game and the chat host explains a 'random player will be chosen at random out of the room. This is actually a host picking a player who they know of or feel 'deserves' win. She went on to explain that on media games that are played, random players that get chosen are also the hosts choosing the number in which a player falls on and they choose to win.
Following this I have noticed that upon entering a chat room hosts manually comp players (just give them FREE bonus money because your friendly with them, but this does not show to the whole chat room it is between you and the host.

so my question to you all that read this if chat host have the ability to choose who gets randomly chosen in a room full of hundreds, what else do Jackpotjoy employees have control of?

I have noticed with this site, you have no privacy, I have been followed by a chat host into a room that the site claim hosts are forbidden to enter, I have seen hosts use a screenname(a name they use which enables them to blend in with other members and stay in a room without anyone knowing they are in the room). WHICH leads me to think when the same bingo winners keep appearing are these people chat hosts using screen names? JUST how much control do Jackpotjoy have !!!

    I worked for Mice and Dice up until last year, which is the Company the Hosts are part of. They don't just do Jackpotjoy, but Sun Bingo, Heart Bingo, Virgin Games, Caesars and Fabulous Bingo too. Most hosts stick to one site, but some tend to float around on several of them.
    Anyway, in response to the complaint. I'm not sure who you spoke to, but this person was feeding you false Info I'm afraid. The Randomiser, which takes the form of an animated chicken laying an egg is indeed Random. The host can set the criteria for it, such as Ticket holders only, or active Chatters for instance, but they can't choose a players name. It will pick someone randomly. As for the games as well, the bonus winner is completely random too.
    While Hosts do indeed have player accounts, these are for testing and familiarisation purposes only. They are forbidden to participate in the games and if a host does use their account to play, this can lead to them losing their job. They also have to declare their account, so the company is aware of the username.
    As for the same person winning multiple times, it comes down to simple maths. Say you have a room of 20 people, but only 6 are holding cards, you only have a small selection of players who can possibly win. Now, say 5 of those players are holding 6 cards, while one is holding 60, statistically they are more likely to win multiple times, since they have more chances to win per game. The reason a host will not point this out, is simply because this could be viewed as encouraging players to spend more money, which is something they are not allowed to do.
    A host will generally have by and large, the same visibility as a player in terms of the games. They can't see into your account or hold any influence over the games themselves.
    Hope that clears a few things up.

    Randy is automated so chooses the player at random in the room, the host has NO control over this at all!!
    With media games, the Host again has NO control over the computer and who it picks other than they have to be a non recent winner on media games. The word ones the positions are given PRIOR to the game played, so again can't be "fixed" to who they want to pay. Hosts are not allowed to play the games, so the bingo winners are real and if you really believed this you wouldn't still play on that site!!! And the site is well within the rules and regulations, so if this was the case they'd be closed!! But as they've been open over 10 years I'd suggest that is false what you've suggested there.
    Hosts do give money to members - I've seen them do it, when a room is quiet, but the host comps those that have chatted with them as a thank you for not ignoring them, but the majority you will find don't have favourites.
    I think the Host you spoke to didn't know their job really, as majority is totally false!!
