One of the best things about playing online bingo is the huge variety of bonuses and attractive incentives and player perks. In addition most sites offer players special bonus codes. Most sites offer very generous welcome bonuses and most offer free bingo so new players can test the site’s game software. New players can feel overwhelmed by all of the bonuses and promotional offers.
When selecting the best bonus offers new players need to read the fine print. The terms and conditions will tell new players whether the bonus offer is legitimate or just another come on. It is very important to read all the terms and conditions before signing up at any online bingo sites. Some sites have a disclaimer that requires players to deposit a certain amount of money to take advantage of the bonus offers. Some bingo sites offer a bonus just for signing up but these offers are rare.
Most bonuses come with wagering requirements. Usually players must wager a certain amount of money plus a multiplier before any winnings may be withdrawn. The higher the multiplier the more difficult it will be to withdraw any winnings and high multipliers can make bonus offers worthless and can actually cost the player money. Bingo operators are in business to make money and no sane businessperson gives money away. Sites with low multipliers are usually offer the best deals.
Some online bingo sites offer a lump sum bonus but most offer bonuses based on a percentage of the players deposits. Welcome, or sign up, bonuses are usually the largest. Because of intense industry competition bonuses of 500% or more are not uncommon. Today most bingo sites offer bonuses for every deposit made over a set amount. Some sites will offer loyal players extra bonuses and often ‘high rollers’ receive special treatment.
In addition to bonuses bingo sites also offer promotions to their players. These can be seasonal, holiday themes and can be awarded for just about any reason. Last summer the birth of the British royal baby triggered a huge selection of royal birth themed promotions. Many people may wonder why bingo sites offer so many bonuses and promotions. The answer is ‘volume.’ Put simply they want to attract as many players as they can. Unlike land based bingo venues that may have player number limitations online bingo sites have an unlimited capacity for players.
