Best Bingo Deposit Bonus Offers
The bingo sites on this page all offer a bingo deposit bonus of 350% or more on your first deposit – and in order to qualify for inclusion it must be a true bingo bonus (not including any slots bonus or free bingo tickets in the 350%).
This sounds great, but bear in mind the following and check the terms and conditions BEFORE depositing to see whether any of them are going to be an issue for you:
What is the wagering requirement? How many times will you have to play through your deposit before you can withdraw any winnings from the bonus? For example, if it is 4 x (deposit+bonus) and you deposit £100 and get a 200% bonus, you’d have to wager £1200 (the deposit, the bonus plus £900 of winnings) before you could take any winnings out.
Is there a rule about having made a recent deposit in order to qualify for making a withdrawal? That could be a problem if there is a reload bonus, because making a deposit will trigger a fresh wagering requirement that will have to be satisfied first.
Bonus time limit
Does the bonus have a time limit? Many bonuses expire if not used within 30 days and some have shorter time limits of 7 days or less. This can be a problem if the site takes wagers out of your deposit rather than your bonus, and only starts on the bonus when you run out of cash.
Is there a rule that says any remaining bonus will be forfeited if you make a withdrawal of winnings from cash play?
Cap on winnings
Is there a cap on winnings from bonus money?
Running out of funds
What happens if you run out of both cash and bonus money without fulfilling the wagering requirement? Will that void the wagering requirement or will it roll over into future deposits?
Restrictions on bonus usage
What restrictions are there concerning where the bonus can be used? If you are playing at one of the sites that takes wagers from your deposit and only starts on the bonus when you run out of cash, you may find that once this happens you no longer count as a funded player and are denied entry to some of the rooms or games. Other sites restrict you to bingo only, or impose an enormous wagering requirement if you use it to play slots or casino games. Another thing to watch out for is that some of the Virtue Fusion bingo sites earmark some or all of the welcome bonus for use in their own exclusive rooms and not any of the network rooms.
Checking all this before you deposit prevents any unpleasant surprises later on. Happy bingoing!
