Around the internet there are many sites offering ‘No Deposit Bingo’ – the chance to play bingo for free – but what players have to remember first and foremost is that whilst an offer from a brand may not require a deposit in order to play at the site, in order to withdraw any winnings a deposit is ALWAYS required. No deposit bingo is a term often used to describe the welcome offer for a player, the chance to “try before they buy” but it often makes more sense to deposit instantly in order to be able to withdraw your winnings.
Imagine, for example, that you were to take a no deposit required welcome bonus from one brand and spent it buying tickets for a big guaranteed jackpot game only to find yourself a winner! Some sites, not all, would then credit the winnings to your bonus account or simply say that as a non-depositing player you are not eligible to withdraw the winnings.
Some brands restrict access to certain rooms to players who are using their no deposit bingo bonus in order to avoid such a situation. However it would be extremely disappointing to find yourself in the situation described above. The no deposit bingo offers should be used as they are intended, to trial the site, take a look around and see if the game play, chat hosts and other players all meet your needs as a player. You are never going to get something for nothing in the world of bingo on the internet – there will always been a wagering requirement to meet or a deposit to be made before a withdrawal of winnings is available.
We are not against no deposit bingo bonuses, in fact completely the opposite! The brands that continue this practice, and these a few and far between, give players the chance to test the site for suitability but more often than not sites now offer improved cash match bonuses on initial transactions.
