Free Bingo Bonuses
First published by Melissa Dawn
Free Bingo bonuses are probably the most popular part of online bingo. It’s very common for bingo sites to offer massive jackpots in games that cost 50p to £1 – but when bingo sites offer jackpots and prizes that can be won for absolutely nothing; you know you’ve got a winning spot!
Many sites offer free bingo bonus as standard, but with their own individual requirements and specifications. Some sites offer free bingo with no prizes, this is only for those of you who just want to have a game of bingo for fun and are not fussed about winning, and you can also get a feel for their games or just learn how to play. Then there’s the free no deposit bingo bonus you can use for playing when you join a site that offers no deposit bonus. This includes about 5 out of 10 bingo sites, so you’re spoiled with choices in that department. Free bingo money is offered so that players can take a look at bingo sites before they decide whether or not to make a deposit. This does act as cash, bust while it can bag you a win the same as your own depositing money can, it is not available to be withdrawn. The average amount of money tends to be between £5 and £10, but some sites – like King Jackpot – offer an excellent £20. This means that players can play absolutely free bingo for any number of jackpots before even thinking about depositing their own money. After that initial free bingo money is gone, 99% of bingo sites require you to make a deposit (£5 or £10 usually being the minimum) before you can play their games, even if it is the free bingo games.
After you deposit, some sites offer free welcome bonus for first depositors as well as regular free bingo games. For example, Bingo Street features some excellent free bingo with guaranteed jackpots up to £5,000, while sites like Wonder Bingo give depositors free spins of their ‘Wonder Wheel’ every day to win them free cash for bingo, as well as offering free bingo too. Most sites don’t offer free bingo around the clock, but have specially selected games throughout the day – like 888Ladies who offer freebies every hour - or on one specific day, like 6-7pm Wednesdays and Thursdays. However, at Bingo Café, the free bingo is only open to VIP members, so members must make a deposit before being allowed to play the freebies. Free bingo games don’t necessarily have small jackpots – Hollywood Bingo gives away £20 in their daily free bingo game from 6.30pm to 10.30pm. Red Bus offer a whopping a £1,000 free bingo game. Dream Bingo has free bingo every Friday promising cash prizes. It is quite rare for a bingo site to offer massive jackpot on free bingo game, with most of them offering as little as £1 - £10, saving the big money for bingo games that you need to purchase tickets.
Although money won with a free bingo bonus can be withdrawn, all withdrawals come with certain terms and conditions, so it’s always a good idea to check out the terms and conditions of any site you decide to deposit on. It may well be that you need to spend or deposit a certain amount before you can withdraw, so make sure you do a little investigating to find the best site for you!
