Online bingo has become increasingly popular over the last 10 years and 2015 has not been any different. During 2008 the number of active online bingo players increased dramatically from the previous years and the trend has continued year-on-year since then.
During the latter part of the year we’ve seen a few new sites that have launched, and also some bingo sites that have had a redesign. Each new bingo site has a warm welcome with high deposit bonuses so you can play for a lot longer.
Bingo players can look forward to many new sites, with some fantastic offers, great welcome bonuses and free bingo money. Look out for the sites that offer the very latest in gaming technology.
Bingo software has come a long way over a short space of time and there are constantly new ideas being developed to make your online bingo experience even better. We are expecting bingo software providers to become even more creative, especially as we have seen Mecca Bingo partner up with Playtech to launch their brand new ‘omni-channel’ solution.
Some of the new sites are focusing on the social networking element of the game, a lot of bingo players that used to frequently attend land based bingo clubs were missing out on the social aspect of the game. Bingo sites have also realised how popular the social networking sites have become and now want to offer their bingo players the opportunity to interact with other players. You can have a profile to share with other bingo players with information about yourself, put up photographs, gossip with bingo buddies in the chat room and even write your very own blog for others to read. You’ll also find your favourite bingo sites on Facebook, it’s good to follow them as they often give away extra bonuses and freebies.
You may have noticed in the past, sites claiming to offering free bingo with money that you can actually withdraw without spending a single penny. The free bingo offer has resulted in many players registering with these sites and enjoying free games of bingo with jackpots up to £50 to be won every hour. This really isn’t a great way of playing bingo, especially if you are new to online bingo world as although your money is not at risk you will find yourself in a room that is extremely busy with very little chance of winning. Even if you did win the jackpots are so small and split between so many people it’s hardly worth your time.
Free bingo bonus money is good fun for the player, but some sites are steering clear of this kind of offer in favour of running free bingo rooms for their depositing players only. Of course players can still find sites that do offer a no deposit bonus offer but it is worth thinking about the wagering policy at the site, you may not be able to withdraw any winnings until you have deposited a certain amount of times. Also be aware that, particularly on the Dragonfish Network you will have need to have deposited in the last 7 days to be entitled to play in the free bingo rooms. 2016 has been a huge game-changer in terms of free bingo, it can be very difficult to find a bingo site that offers a no deposit bingo bonus. Free bingo appears to now be used as a reward for players that make regular deposits.
Bingo bonuses are under threat also because of Point of Consumption tax that was introduced in December 2014 to any gambling website that has players based in the UK. The tax is calculated at a rate of 15%, winnings derived from bonus funds are included in the tax calculation so it most certainly has deterred bingo sites from giving away free bingo bonuses.
You may have seen a huge increase in bingo and slot sites giving away free spins rather than free bingo bonuses. Free spins generally do not have such a high value so aren’t as expensive to give away. There has also been a big shift towards a online slot game focus in the industry, slots used to be an afterthought for bingo sites but now they are a huge draw for players. Big software providers such as Swedish company NetEnt have completely shaken things up by offering fantastic new slots with amazing graphics and themes, it would be difficult to not find a slot that you would enjoy. The latest slots are based on movies, cute characters, superheroes and even rock stars! You may have noticed you can also get an extra slots bonus when you register at some sites, it can even come in the form of a split bonus eg 200% bingo bonus plus 200% slots bonus. Most players really enjoy playing but be aware that you can spend your money very quickly, sometimes it’s a good idea to have a limit in mind when you begin the game so you don’t overspend. Slots can be very addictive, if you are worried that you feel you may have a problem then you can visit the Gamble Aware website. They have an interactive website with a quiz and a spending calculator so you can keep a check on things.
Wagering requirements can be found in the terms and conditions at the site you are playing at, always check them out so that you know where you stand. Sometimes bingo players are surprised that they cannot withdraw their winnings due to a high minimum withdrawal amount, this is something that ideally you could check before you make your first deposit.
You’ll notice that during this year the number of online bingo sites offering very large deposit bonuses has increased somewhat. We are surprised to see so many new and older bingo sites offering ; Deposit £10 get £40 to play for example. It’s not just the new sites offering this, huge industry players such as Gala Bingo and Wink Bingo have upped their bonuses too to all time high levels. Players now get so many more free bingo games for their money, even a small deposit of £5 or £10 can keep you in play for many days or weeks.
Re-deposit or ‘reload bonuses’ seem to be disappearing somewhat, bingo sites often used to reward players with very large bonuses for making a second and third deposit but now it’s rare to see. The Cozy Games bingo sites still do offer large bonuses for subsequent deposits made by their players however.
You may have already heard of the term ‘bingo network’ on your hunt for a new bingo site. The most common bingo networks are Live Bingo Network and Dragonfish Bingo Network, these networks have grown hugely over the last few years. Why choose a network over a standalone bingo site? Generally speaking network sites are able to offer larger jackpots and prizes, there are a large pool of players that are linked up which means a higher jackpot total. The promotions aren’t wonderful by any stretch, you certainly won’t be winning a new car or a fancy holiday.
Some sites on the Dragonfish platform-not the Dragonfish network- offer exclusive games and different bonuses and offers. As a player it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two. The networked bingo sites do always have the same promotions though so a quick visit to the sites promo page will usually give it away, the software and slot games are still the same though.
The 15 Network of bingo sites has been another hit with bingo players with more than 25 new sites being launched over the last few years. A new addition to the company 15 Marketing is another network with an emphasis on slots; The Wheel of Slots network which began during summer 2015.
There has been a bit of a change with the popularity of some bingo networks over the years, St Minver was previously a hugely successful network with sites such as Cheggers Bingo, Ann Summers and Butlins Bingo. The network is now actually called the G2 Gtech Network and has massively shrunk over time with just a few bingo sites that have survived.
In late 2014 it became a requirement for all bingo sites that accept UK players to have an up to date UK Gambling Licence which must be issued by the UK Gambling Commission. This is a good thing for players, as all of the licences are overseen by the UK Gambling Commission it means extra safety and security as all sites will be regulated in the UK. Prior to the change bingo sites were licenced by a foreign commission.
It is now much easier to make the decision to self-exclude yourself from playing at a gambling site, to do this you need to contact the customer services at the site. This can be via live chat, email or telephone in most cases or via the responsible gambling page which all sites must have. Self-exclusion can be the best thing to do in some circumstances if you do feel you have a problem, it means that you will not be able to play at the site for a period of between 6 months and 5 years.
We update this page regularly with all the latest sites and for a sneak preview have a look at our list of bingo sites that are coming soon, so be sure to come backto check out the newest sites and offers.
It may help you to keep this page bookmarked so that you can be one of the first bingo players to try the sites out .
