Across the industry of Internet bingo you will find that many bingo sites offer their players a bingo loyalty scheme of some description or another. The bingo loyalty schemes vary from site to site and from one bingo software platform to another. Some may offer you loyalty bonuses based on your deposits whilst others may offer them based on your ticket purchases and game play. Here we will look at two different types of bingo loyalty schemes across two different internet bingo sites and two different platforms.
888Ladies Bingo Loyalty Scheme
888Ladies is a standalone site using the Globalcom / 888 Holdings software platform.
All of the bonuses awarded in this loyalty bonus scheme are paid in bingo points. Bingo points can be exchanged for cash to play bingo with and this will be added to you bonus balance. 1,000 bingo points equates to £1 bingo bonus money in this, our first look at bingo loyalty schemes.
Your can earn points in the following ways:
- For every 10p that is wagered at the site (only purchases made on bingo cards will count for loyalty points)
- Referring friends – 15,000 points will be awarded when they deposit and spend £5 within 30 days of registration.
- Chat games – usually 1,000 points are awarded for a chat game win.
There is an additional Bingo VIP Scheme available at 888Ladies which offers additional benefits for your loyalty to the brand.
Tidy Bingo Loyalty Scheme
Tidy Bingo is part of the 15 Network and powered by the Jumpman Gaming software. Whilst the site does offer many exclusive deals for its players, the loyalty and VIP Schemes are governed by the network.
This site also works with loyalty points but unlike 888Ladies they are not given just for playing at the site. Points are earned by referring friends, winning chat games and tournaments and also as the prizes for some of the many network promotions available.
Tidy Bingo do offer some additional perks for loyalty to the site that are not part of the network promotional schedule including Roomie Of The Month, a promotion that gives away a tangible prize each and every month to one player. This is decided more on their contribution to the site socially in their standalone room rather than by the amount wagered at the site.
Considering Loyalty Schemes As Part Of The Package
Many bingo players don’t take the bingo loyalty schemes into consideration when choosing an Internet bingo site to play at but as you can see from the above if you take the time to look into them, you can be earning quite a bit of bonus money just for playing bingo and in some case, tangible prizes.
All internet bingo sites, if they offer one of the bingo loyalty schemes, will show details somewhere on their pages; if you cannot find the details then simply send an email to their support team or ask about it in the bingo chat rooms.
