Introduction To Online Bingo Offers

Playing bingo online can be fun, exciting and great for meeting new friends. The only downside is parting with finding the right site to play at. But, despair not, for most bingo sites offer exciting offers to both new and old players to their site – some of which you may have completely missed. With the chance to get an extra lump of cash on top of your deposits for nothing, free bingo cards, gadgets and electronics or great introductory bonuses, it seems mad to have to miss them and gives you a great opportunity to find the best sites to settle at.

Usually, in order to hear about most of these offers, we have to be on a special email list, or have a friend with a code, or simply just be in the right place at the right time – but not any more.

When you’re looking out for online bingo offers, it makes sense to know what these promotions mean and exactly what you are entitled to. With so many different offers to choose from, it’s easy to get lost. Here is a quick run-down of the type of online bingo offers that are available, together with common terms and conditions to watch out for.

About Joining Bonuses

A joining bonus is offered by almost all bingo sites as a way to tempt players in – these are usually a percentage of your first deposit offered for free on top of your first deposit. For example, some bingo sites will offer to double your deposit by adding 100% free. Others will offer you a small amount of ‘free’ cash to play at the site too. Be aware, though, that many of these offers require you to spend a certain amount of money on the site in a period of time in order to be able to claim this bonus.

About No Deposit Bonuses

As the name suggests this is free money that you will receive as a bonus as soon as you have completed registration at a site and for which you do not need to make a deposit of your own money to receive it. However, normally sites will still ask you to complete your financial information during the registration process but this is purely as a fraud precaution to ensure and no monies will be taken from your card unless you decide to make a deposit.

Generally as soon as you have completed the registration bonus to your new bingo site and logged into your account, the bonus money should be waiting in your account ready for you to use in the bingo rooms. You may have to activate it by clicking a link in an email, emailing their support team or by visiting the sites live help room. The amount of free money on offer varies from site to site ranging from £1 upwards.

Some sites will refer to the no deposit bonuses as trial play but basically it means the same thing, it’s free money to enable you to check out the site by buying tickets in the bingo rooms before you decide you like the site and want to make a cash deposit.

About Matching Bonuses

One of the hotter online bingo offers, some bingo sites will offer to completely match your first deposit – turning that £15 pound deposit into £30. These often require you to spend more money on the specific site over a period of time just to claim the bonus, so be sure to check. In addition, these matching bonuses are sometimes only available to new players to the site, although some bingo sites also offer them to their long-time members. They can range from anywhere between 100% to 1000%, but don’t be fooled by the size of the bonus, it’s not always a case of size matters when it comes to online bingo.

About Promotional Bonuses

Catching a promotional bonus is great, as these are often limited and tend to come and go fast! These are usually cash bonuses, free bingo tickets, raffle prizes and prize draws, free bingo nights and even points for popular cards such as Nectar.

About Payment Method Bonuses

Some sites will offer a bonus amount added to your deposit, just for using a certain type of payment. This is usually due to the charges incurred by the bingo site from the various types of credit cards. Thus by encouraging their players to use other forms of payment, the site may avoid or at least minimise this charge and is thus happy to pass the savings to you as an extra bonus. Be sure to check that the method of payment you use is trustworthy. If in doubt, play it safe.

About Coupons And Codes

As the name suggests a promotion code is a special code that bingo sites generally give out to tempt new bingo players or to reward their existing bingo players. These tend to be codes to be used during the registration or cash reload processes to either give you free money to trial the site or maybe to increase the amount of bonus money you will receive when you make a cash deposit to your account.

Once you are an established player at a site you might from time to time receive an email giving you details of promotion codes to use when making your next cash deposit which will increase your reload deposit bonus percentage. Bingo sites tend to use these at special times such as Easter, Christmas etc as a way to say ‘thank you’ to their loyal players.

Bingo Chat Room Games and Prizes

Chatting while you play online bingo is almost as much fun as winning a prize, but did you know that some bingo sites offer games and prizes to players in the chat rooms? Players can play guessing games, hangman and word association games in many bingo rooms and win anything from extra bingo cash to play with, bingo tickets right the way through to physical prizes.

VIP Clubs

When it comes to online bingo offers, it may be worth considering becoming a VIP. Some bingo sites offer a VIP club to members that play regularly in their rooms, or even to new players as an incentive. These clubs work on a point by point basis – the more bingo games you play, the more points you earn. These points can be redeemed for other bingo bonuses such as tickets, prizes and higher bonuses when depositing money into bingo sites. Please be aware, however, that these are only available to players that play regularly and points may dissapear over time for inactive members

Important Information

Whichever type of bonus you receive, free play/no deposit or free money/deposit, you will need to make sure that you read carefully the terms and conditions that might apply to your bonus to make sure that you don’t come a cropper as generally you will need to meet wagering requirements before you can withdraw or you might not be able to withdraw any winnings obtained using free/bonus money.
