Penny Bingo Sites

Penny bingo means maximum entertainment for minimum spend!  To be included in this section an online bingo site must have a dedicated penny bingo room (with tickets priced at less than 5p each) or regular penny bingo hour.

Penny Bingo Sites


In penny bingo, cards cost under 5p each and can cost as little as 1p. Penny bingo is a great way to play for those on a budget who still want to experience the thrill of online bingo.

If you are looking for low cost online bingo, the ticket price should actually be more important than the bonuses a site offers.  A £30 bonus does not last very long if all the tickets cost 25p or more.  Consider this, however: suppose you were to deposit £10, get a £20 deposit bonus (as is common) and then only play 1p bingo games, one card per game. That’s a staggering 3000 games of bingo you can play before you run out of funds even if you don’t win anything (and you would have to be pretty unlucky not to win anything in 3000 games even with just one card per game). How much entertainment is that!!!

Some sites, including big names such as Gala Bingo and Sky Bingo have penny games running all day, every day. There are even some – Fancy Bingo was the obvious example – that specialise in penny bingo.

At other sites penny bingo only runs at certain times of the day – such as at William Hill Bingo where one of the rooms has 1p tickets all day Sunday – or as part of special promotions such as the one at Robin Hood Bingo with 1p tickets for a sliding jackpot game.  Do check the bingo schedule and promotions page before signing up if you are hoping to play a lot of penny bingo. It is important to make sure that the cheap bingo games run at the times most convenient for you.

On the minus side, 1p games tend to attract a large number of players but many of them react to the low ticket price by simply buying more tickets; the result can be an excessively large number of tickets in play (tens of thousands, perhaps) resulting in a game which is over quite quickly and where each individual card has an extremely low chance of winning anything. This effect is particularly noticeable where it is easy to pre-buy and/or the game is running across a large network or on a very popular site.
