If you’re a new bingo player like I was back in 2009 then there are probably a few things that you should know before you get started. These little tips will help you to win more money online, remove any apprehensions you might have about buying bingo tickets, and a little info on taking advantage of bonuses.
First of all, when you’re choosing a bingo site I recommend signing up to the biggest, best UK bingo sites with the best reputation. Bingo sites such as Foxy Bingo, Bet365 Bingo, Mecca Bingo and Posh Bingo all have pretty awesome reputations. Each of their sites will run plenty of 75 ball, 90 ball, jackpot, side games and promotions online.
Taking Advantage of Bonuses and Promotions
There are a number of attractive bonuses and promotions in the online bingo market. Sites such as Jackpotjoy and Moon Bingo will all be offering free money offers and deposit bonuses to players.
If you’re a new bingo player with little or no cash then I recommend signing up to bingo sites that offer free bingo sign up bonuses to players. At 888 Bingo or Jackpotjoy you can sign up an account now and receive £5 in free money. If you imagine spending 2p per ticket in games with a £1,000 jackpot than this means you can buy up to 250 free tickets just from registering an account.
If you plan on making a deposit than find a bingo site that offers a large, juicy deposit bonus for players. Specifically, look for sites which offer a 150%+ match-up bonus which enables you to take full advantage of your money. Foxy Bingo even offers a 200% up to £100 bonus, which means if you deposit £50 you’ll receive £100 in free bonuses. All of these bonuses can be used to purchase bingo tickets and withdraw eventually.
What Types of Games will you Find at a Bingo Site?
Bingo sites seem to be developing and increasing the range of games on their websites every year. Back in 2000, when the first bingo sites went online, you only had a choice of 75 ball and 90 ball bingo games.
Nowadays, you’ll find much more action, with hundreds of games every day to suit players with different bankrolls and desires. A lot of sites run guaranteed jackpot bingo games which guarantee a certain size of jackpot for entrants. This might be worth anywhere from £1,000 up to £10,000 depending on the price of tickets. 80 ball “Speed” bingo games are also a relatively new concept. These basically run like the US 75 ball versions however the games are over much faster because less numbers need to be called to win.
One of the things that makes bingo sites stand out in my opinion are the forums, interactive “chat games”, team bingo games and other weekly promotions. Chat games in particular are a lot of fun because they allow you to talk and compete with other players as part of a side game. This might include novelty quizzes, movie quizzes, number games or something else. The prizes that you win from these games are paid out in the form of loyalty points or bonuses which can be exchanged for VIP gifts or items at a later date.
