What is a £5 deposit bingo site?

The industry standard minimum deposit for online bingo is £10.  It is such a widely accepted standard that welcome offers are commonly publicised based on a £10 deposit – e.g. “Deposit £10, play with £40” even when they are actually percentage based offers where you could get a much bigger bonus by making a bigger deposit.

If you don’t want to deposit £10, lots of bingo sites have a £5 minimum deposit, but most of them aren’t what we would call £5 deposit bingo sites because you won’t qualify for the welcome offer unless your first deposit is £10 or more.  To be included on this page, a bingo site MUST have a welcome offer that is valid on a deposit of £5.

A few bingo sites have a standard welcome offer that is valid on a £5 deposit but in many cases, we’ve worked together with the site operator to bring you an exclusive £5 deposit bonus welcome offer that you won’t find anywhere else, sometimes with free spins included as well!

Why choose a £5 deposit bingo site?

£5 deposit bingo allows players to try something new with low risk. Maybe you’ve never played online bingo before and feel nervous about depositing £10?  Or perhaps you want a cheap and easy way to try out unfamiliar bingo software or a new network with different bingo rooms?  Depending on where in the UK you live, £5 can be less than the price of a visit to a coffee shop, so it is not surprising that some people feel more comfortable kicking off their adventures in online real money gaming with this rather modest sum.

£5 deposit bingo has been increasing in popularity over the last few years and this is because of what has happened to no deposit bingo.  A few years ago there were dozens of no deposit bingo sites providing a way for players to venture into the world of online bingo with very little commitment in terms of handing over either money or information – all you had to do was give them an email address!  Subsequent tax changes for operators have resulted in most of those offers disappearing for good.  Furthermore, account verification rules which came into effect in May 2019 mean that to take advantage of any of the few no deposit offers that are still available at online gambling sites, you have to supply many more details than previously and then have your age and ID verified before you are allowed to play any games (even free demo versions!).  Once you have to jump through all those hoops anyway, depositing £5 to take advantage of a much more generous offer seems like a no-brainer.

What else do I need to consider?

£5 deposit bingo offers are generally for first deposits only and not for subsequent deposit offers or player promotions; the bingo site operators are hoping that once you’ve tried and liked their site, you’ll want to carry on playing with them and feel more confident about depositing £10 or more next time.

Bingo sites (and indeed all betting sites) are required under the terms of their UK Gambling Commission licence to allow players to withdraw their unspent deposit at any time (albeit at the loss of any remaining bonus) and this means that one thing which used to be a problem at some £5 deposit bingo sites in the past – withdrawal restrictions – is no longer a problem.  The minimum withdrawal now cannot be any larger than the minimum deposit and there’s no longer any issues with having to make multiple deposits or play through a required sum before any withdrawals are allowed.

Playing bingo on a budget

But what if the reason you wanted to deposit £5 rather than £10 is not caution, but restricted budget?  In that case, something to consider is how far your deposit and bonus will actually go – and here’s where bingo ticket prices become important.  It’s not just bingo ticket prices either, it’s the number of tickets that can be bought per game; even if tickets are just 10p, if the room limit is 96 tickets it costs nearly £10 to max out, and some players will do just that.  Of course you could buy fewer tickets but if other players buy many more tickets than you do, your chance of winning is reduced.  For an enjoyable bingo experience on a budget we suggest investigating the availability of:

  • Penny bingo rooms or penny bingo events in regular rooms, with tickets priced at 1p or 2p each.  Don’t forget to check that the penny bingo games run at the times of day when you want to play.  You may still want to avoid penny rooms at very busy times as there can be tens of thousands of tickets in play.
  • Bingo games with a low maximum number of players e.g. BOB at Mecca Bingo and HexaBingo at Unibet
  • Single ticket bingo games – in these games, which are generally multi-stake (with bigger prizes for bigger stakes) each player only has one ticket so everyone has an equal chance of winning.  At Buzz Bingo, for instance, you can play the single ticket multi stake game Buzz Bingo Blast and if you pick the lowest stake each game costs just 4p.  Or try Paper at Tombola, a multi stake game where you can buy 1-5 tickets with minimum wager 1p. That’s certainly one way to turn a £5 deposit into a massive amount of entertainment value!
  • Free bingo.  Many bingo sites also have free bingo rooms for newbies or free bingo events at pre announced times.  The number of players means that the chance of winning is always very small but hey, it’s free!

The range of slot games on offer is also important – you’ll want a good choice of games that can be played and enjoyed for 10p a spin rather than 25p or more.

What about £5 deposit slots?

Many of our exclusive £5 deposit bingo offers also double as slots offers, as they include a slot bonus and/or slot spins.  We have found this type of everything-but-the-kitchen-sink £5 deposit offer to be particularly popular as they allow players to try a bit of everything – and of course, modern bingo sites are pretty hot on slot machines and casino games and include as good a selection of slot games as you’d find at many an online casino.   If you’re looking for a £5 deposit casino bonus offer at a pure slot or casino site, though, they are much harder to find.  Occasionally we do manage to track them down and our exclusive £5 deposit slot offers are listed above.
