Best Bingo Bonuses and Promotions

Most websites with large bingo jackpots will offer you a bingo bonus or some kind of promotion in order to draw more new players into their rooms. This article is going to help you find the best bingo bonuses available as well as the things that you need to look out for.

USA Bingo or UK Bingo

This is the first thing that you need to be aware of. There are bingo sites geared towards American (75 ball) bingo and there are ones that cater to English/European bingo players.

UK Bingo sites will primarily offer 90 ball bingo rooms with bingo tickets as well as rooms for 75 ball bingo with bingo cards and possibly 80 ball bingo games that merge the previous two. USA bingo sites will only serve the 75 ball bingo game that they are traditionally used to.

Bingo Bonus Types

Before you decide to accept a bingo bonus, you need to be aware of what you are agreeing to. There are a couple of types of bingo bonuses. First, there is the no deposit bingo bonus. This is the type of bonus where you are very unlikely to make money from it; but you don’t have to make a deposit and you can try playing the real games for free.

More likely, you will be offered a deposit bonus. This can also be called a welcome bonus or match bonus. Basically, you will be required to create an account and fund it with money. Then, you will be given an amount of bonus money in addition to your deposit. You will receive a certain percentage and a certain maximum bonus amount; for example, you might get a 100% bonus up to $/£ 200. That means you can deposit 200 and receive a total of 400 to start.

There are two types of these deposit bonuses: bonuses that can be withdrawn from the account and bonuses that are only available to use for purchasing more tickets/cards and can’t be cashed out. Most of the reasonable sounding bonuses can be withdrawn after completing the bonus rules. The bonuses that have a very large percentage (500% or more) or a very large amount of money (more than $/£ 200) are the ones that are unlikely to be able to cash out.

Bingo Bonus Rules

There are several rules that you may find when you receive a bingo bonus. You should read these rules before you make a deposit at a bingo website. Here are the most likely rules that you will need to follow:

You are going to be required to purchase a certain monetary amount of bingo tickets/bingo cards. This is called the rollover. The rollover should not exceed 10 times if only the bonus money is counted in the rollover. If the deposit and bonus money is counted in the rollover, then the rollover should not exceed 5 times. Most rollovers will be between 2 and 4 times. This means if you have 400 in your account and a 3 time rollover, you will need to purchase at least (400 x 3) or 1200 in the bingo rooms before you can take money out.

The next thing you need to be aware of is the side games that are offered at many bingo rooms. These side games often include some form of slots and/or casino games. The rules for the bonus money may or may not allow you to bet on these side games. Most often, the bets on these games do not count towards the rollover; however, sometimes they may be allowed.
