Understanding the best bingo bonuses

Posted in Bingo Bonuses

If you’ve been looking around for a good bingo website to satiate your desire for gambling and fun, chances are you’ve spent considerable time already trying to weigh the bonuses and benefits of each site. Unlike games for pure entertainment alone, you can’t just try them all for free, (though a few of them do let you do just that). You don’t want to put a ten pound deposit into each site just to figure out which one is the best, so it’s preferable by far to figure that all out before committing your hard-earned money to a bingo website.

If you’re especially savvy about maximizing your funds on any occasion, you’re probably most interested in the welcome bonus each bingo site offers. There are a few that add a solid number bonus as your welcome (such as providing you with £15 pounds to start with for signing up), but most provide percentage bonuses on your first deposit, multiplying how much money you put into the site, though they usually only do this up to a certain number. For instance, mFortune Bingo offers you a free £5 sign on bonus. You don’t have to put any cash at all into the site to acquire this boon: all you must do is sign up. Other sites, like Glossy Bingo, do not offer a sign on bonus, but instead provide a 250% welcome bonus on your first deposit: deposit £10 pounds and you will have an extra £25 to play with for free.

While one amount is clearly more than the other, it’s wise to remember that one bonus is also free while the other is not. Even with that extra £25 from Glossy Bingo, if it turns out you don’t like the site at all, you still wasted £10. This is an issue you don’t have to worry about with sign on bonuses provided by sites such as mFortune and WOW bingo (the latter provides a £15 bonus).

Even so, deposit percentage bonuses can be much more rewarding if you already know which site you want to commit to. The highest bonus I have seen personally is an astounding 700% deposit bonus from Ted Bingo, though it only applies to a deposit of £10 for a conclusive £80, which is still a large amount of free money to spend around the site. Unfortunately not all welcome bonuses are so massive. Most welcome bonuses even out on a range of about 250%, such as Glossy Bingo does. That’s only an estimate though, as WOW Bingo provides a 300% bonus, while Bingo Diamond does 200%. If a deposit bonus is what you’re looking for, then it’s wise to check every site’s promised percentage before committing anywhere, though, as far as I’ve seen, Ted Bingo grants the highest bonus of them all.

While researching your options, it’s also wise to read the fine print. A certain type of welcome bonus may sound incredible at first, but when you find out they only multiply a maximum deposit of £10, it may not seem as amazing. Keep your wits about you, and decide whether or not you value a small amount of free cash or a multiplication of your commitment before starting your search
