As far as gambling is concerned, we all know that over the past few years the arrival of numerous gambling sites and casinos has changed the way in which millions of us choose to have a flutter. The biggest surge of all has been in online bingo sites, and a quick internet search will literally bring up hundreds of results, and many commercials for them are now appearing on TV in the ad breaks.
If you are a fan of bingo and fancy playing from the comfort of your own home then finding a site is a doddle, but finding the best one for you is a bit trickier. There are many incentives given to tempt you to join a bingo site; starting bonuses, deposit bonuses, big jackpots, these are just three and it all depends what you want from a bingo site and how often you plan on playing.
Starting with sign up bonuses, these range from around £10 up to £50. While it is very tempting to sign up and get £50 free to play with, remember that this is virtual money, and there will be a strict criteria regarding withdrawing your winnings. You will essentially have two balances; the money you have deposited and the bonus. If you win £100 from your bonus you will not be able to withdraw that until you have deposited a set amount, so check that out in the ‘t and c’s’ before you start.
A re-deposit bonus does exactly what it says on the tin; for every deposit you make you get a percentage free. For the sake of argument, the site may offer a 50% bonus every time you deposit, so £10 will become £15. Almost every site offer some kind of bonus when you deposit, and the competition is now so fierce between the sites that bonuses are getting better and better, which is great news for the consumer.
The last kind of bonus to look out for is what may come in handy if you want to play the big game but are short on cash. These will be along the lines of refer a friend, clicking like on their Facebook page, following them on Twitter, bonuses for being a VIP player and loyalty points. All the best bingo sites offer at least a few of these kinds of bonus, so don’t waste your time on one that doesn’t.
Also keep a look out for the best promotions, as these have also improved as the competition has grown. Avoid the sites that offer bonuses as prizes and head to those that offer cars, holidays, gadgets and the like. The quality of the promotion, as a rule of thumb, can be an indication of how successful a site is and how well patronised it is, and this is where you should join to turn a humble game of bingo is a great online experience.
