Best Bingo Deposit Bonus Offers


This section is where we showcase the best welcome bonus offers currently available at online bingo sites.  What makes a good offer, you may ask?

High percentage bonus

Who wouldn’t want a huge percentage boost on their first deposit, whether it be for bingo only or a mixture of bingo and slots?

High upper limit

Which is better, a 500% bonus on a first deposit of £5 only, or a 300% bonus on a deposit of up to £25?  The second option gives you more actual bonus if you want to deposit more than £5 – up to 3 times as much.

Substantial extras

Many bingo sites offer extras as well as (not instead of) a bingo or slots bonus. These can include:

  • Slot spins
  • Free bingo tickets
  • Access to a newbie room with free bingo
  • Loyalty points
  • Off site items such as shopping vouchers or cinema tickets

Bonus play – what to look out for

Big welcome bonus offers are 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:

Wagering requirement?

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.

In the case of a bonus which can be used for multiple types of game (i.e. both bingo and slots), the wagering requirement will vary depending on which type of game you play (typically the wagering requirement for slots is 10x that for bingo).

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.

Play order

What happens if you deposit again while you still have a bonus active (to play a game which requires cash or to take advantage of another promotion)?  Will the fresh deposit be played before the old bonus or queued behind it?

Cap on winnings

Is there a cap on winnings from bonus money?  This could be a simple cap or a “max convertible” / “max conversion”.  With a max convertible, the cap is applied when you finish playing through the wagering requirement rather than right away; the max convertible amount is transferred to your cash balance and any remaining bonus or bonus winnings are lost.  Caps and max convertibles usually apply to slot bonus play rather than bingo bonus play.

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?

  • Valid for one type of game only? – e.g. bingo but not slots
  • Exclusions within the type of game? – e.g. not valid for jackpot bingo rooms, not valid for progressive jackpot slots.
  • Specific restricted validity? – e.g. can only be used for one named bingo room or one named slot game

Checking all this before you deposit prevents any unpleasant surprises later on.  Happy bingoing! – or if you prefer slots, look in the Best Slot Bonus section for big slot and casino bonus offers.
