For anyone who has spent a short time browsing through UK-based internet bingo sites, it will have quickly become apparent that there are many different bonus promotions on offer, making it very difficult to choose the right location to start playing. Here is an introduction to internet bingo bonuses, and how to find the best one to suit your playing style.
A popular bingo promotion is the ‘deposit-match’ bonus, where the value of the first payment into your account will be rewarded with the same value in bonus funds (another variation is the percentage bonus, where a determined value of your deposit will be rewarded as a bonus). This is a promotion often favoured by UK bingo sites, but the term to take into account here is ‘bonus funds’. This extra money will not be ready to do with as you please and you will need to have wagered a certain amount on a site before it is available to withdraw. In addition, promotions are often limited to certain games, and only wagers on these games will count towards the requirements of the bonus.
But the latest trend for UK bingo companies is to offer free bingo, or bonuses that require no deposit. These promotions are by far the best way to explore an internet bingo site and see whether it is suitable to your playing needs. Of course, the bonus money you will receive cannot be withdrawn until you make a cash deposit into your account.
Also worth looking out for is the bonus rewards offered with different payment methods. Many internet bingo sites will prefer you to use a certain payment option (credit card, e-transfer etc.) and this could greatly increase the size of our bonus. At the same time, it is worth checking to see which payment options will be excluded from a promotion.
For new players, UK Bingo sites provide plenty of options when it comes to promotions, but also worth looking out for is whether they have incentives for long-term customers. Loyalty or ‘VIP’ programs are common ways for internet bingo halls to offer a long-term promotion that automatically rewards regular players. In most cases, loyalty points are accumulated and can be exchanged for bonus funds. UK bingo sites can sometimes offer better bonus rewards and point-accumulation rates for their most loyal players.
Although these bonuses appear to be benefiting the player, the site will stand to do very well from long-term customers, and you will soon find most bonus promotions require you to play regularly at a site before you will reap the full rewards.
But remember, the world of internet bingo is becoming very competitive and the power, ultimately, is in the player’s hands – there should be no need to settle for second best. No matter what your playing style, you should be able to find a suitable site that offers a rewarding no-deposit or first deposit bonus as well as a good loyalty program for regular players.
