Bingo Bonuses Explained

When you first start playing bingo, it can seem there is a lot to get used to! Checking, dabbing, waiting, bingo lingo, progressives, jackpots… All of it can seem a little overwhelming, however, once it has been explained, you will see, bingo is as easy as one, two, three!

As Easy as 1,2,3

As bingo websites make it clear what game you are playing, and what numbers you need to mark off to make a claim, and since much of the dabbing/marking off is automated, all that is left to concern yourself with are the bingo bonuses. Various websites offer an array of different deposit, welcome and loyalty bonus schemes.

A Golden Hello

You may find that the website you have decided to join offers a welcome package this is the normal means of tempting new players onto any site. The first (and best kind) of package offers newbies a no deposit bonus. This offer means that an amount will be credited to your account, often once you have signed up, for you to spend on bingo games. This welcome bonus allocated to you, without you having to deposit any funds, though it cannot be withdrawn as cash. Terms and conditions will apply regarding when you can withdraw the funds from your bingo account, should you make a claim and win a prize whilst playing with your welcome bonus money. Normally, you will have to spend a certain amount of money before you can make a withdrawal.

Double Your Money

Similar to no deposit bonuses are cash match bonuses. These bonuses can be tiered, increasing in value depending on how long you have been a member of the bingo club, and finally on how much you deposit. Deposit bonuses are normally awarded as what is commonly known as ‘bingo bucks’. These can usually only be used to purchase bingo cards. And once again, if you win when playing with bingo bucks you may incur a penalty if you try to withdraw the funds. So, for example, an initial welcome deposit bonus may be 200%. So, if you deposit £10, you will be awarded an additional £20 in bingo bucks to purchase bingo cards with. Additional bingo bucks (or loyalty funds) may be placed at 50%, increasing to 300%, depending on your status as a loyal player (for example if you deposit £10, you will be given £5 in bingo cash to purchase additional cards with).

Look Out For…

You may also find you are awarded bingo bonuses and loyalty points for taking part in chat games, or introducing a friend or updating your profile. Full terms and conditions are normally available on each game site, and chat hosts (CH or CMs) are always on hand in the chat rooms, and are more than happy to explain anything you do not fully understand.
