The current online bingo boom is dominated by online bingo UK operators who are in effect fighting among-st themselves to attract new customers. The online bingo sector is extremely saturated especially in the UK with all forms of media being snowed under by bingo ads. One play bingo operators use to attract new customers is a free bingo bonus, although is the bonus really free?
You may be surprised to know that in many cases free bingo bonuses are not actually free. Many require you to make at least a small deposit (usually Â£5 to Â£20) before you are entitled to the free money. Other requires you to make a deposit and meet strict wagering requirement before the free money appears in your account. These bonuses are really call match bonuses or in some cases deposit bonuses.
The good news though is that some of the claim free bonuses offers do actually give players free money in their account these types of bonuses are known as free no deposit bingo bonuses as they required no deposit from the players. Again though there are conditions which vary from site to site.
Firstly although no deposit is required you may have to register a credit or debit card. The reason why some online bingo operators request that a card is register is so that they can firstly make sure you are of legal age to play plus secondly that live in a country where online gambling is legal. None of the major online bingo sites UK accept players from the US, so US residents would not be able to claim any free bonuses from UK bingo operators.
Once you have a free bingo bonus sitting in your account you simply can’t withdraw the amount to your bank account. Every free no deposit bingo bonuses have stern wagering requirements which again vary from site to site. Before claim any bingo bonus does take the time to read the terms and situation in full.
So what if you get lucky and win with your free bonus and have net the wager requirements can you then simply cash out? Glowing the short answer in most cases is no. Most bingo sites will request that you make at the very least a small deposit before any withdrawal can be processed. In some cases you may actually have to meet up further wager requirements once you have made a first deposit.
Again I must stress that the actual terms for all bonuses vary from site to sites pleasing the time to read the terms and conditions will give you a better accepting how the bonus can in effect be unlocked.
