Bingo Balance

New players coming to bingo sites might initially find all the terminology and visual aspects a little confusing. Below we’ve attempted to address some of the questions new bingo or slingo players might have when first coming to a bingo site - in terms of looking at key questions, terms and financial queries.

Real Money Bingo

  1. New players are required to deposit an initial fee to start playing but should look out for introductory offers which often give great deals when they start playing.
  2. Players can get as much as five times their initial stake to play with (deposit £10, play with £50), meaning they can get to grips with the rules, prizes and different games without having to worry about losing their money.
Of course, because it’s real money bingo, players are advised to set a budget and financial strategy before playing, and then stick to this carefully.

Bingo Bonus & Games Bonus

Bonuses can usually be used to purchase tickets for all games, although some sites operate restrictions. But in most cases players can use these free bingo bonuses to win real money cash prizes. Bonus funds can usually be checked in the lobby of the site.

A games bonus is a new feature on bingo sites where players can win bonuses in various game promotions to use on other bingo games, slots, casino games or scratch card games.
  • Deposit Bonuses - Meaning players get more for their money each time they top up their account.

  • Loyalty Bouuses - players get rewarded for being loyal customers or regular play.

  • Games Bonuses - will be added to players’ accounts as Game Bonus funds and can also be checked in the lobby of the site.

Depositing and Withdrawing
