With so many online bingo sites on the market and new ones opening on a daily basis, they are now having to work harder than ever to keep their players loyal. In the past they would have relied on huge deposit bonuses, free bingo and the good old chat games, but players have wised up and demand that their favourite brands but a bit more effort into keeping them happy these days, and this has resulted in the rise of bingo tournaments.
These tournaments come in a number of different forms, and bingo sites and networks all add their own twist in the hope of standing out from the crowd. The difference between these tournaments and traditional chat games is that they usually take place over longer periods of time, whether this is an hour, a week or sometimes even a month at a time, but you generally find the prizes are of a greater value, with this being your incentive to keep on playing.
Pot Of Gold At Jackpot Liner
Jackpot Liner for example give away a ‘Pot of Gold’ at the end of every calendar month, and it is packed full of £5,000 worth of bonus money. The tournament is open to all depositing players and works very much like a lottery. At the start of each month they draw a series of eight random numbers and publish them on their promotions page. Each time you win a game, regardless of whether it’s in the 75 or 90 ball bingo room, if the number you bingo on matches one of the published numbers you can simply cross it off. The amount of numbers you match determines how much you win, with prize ranging from £2 up to £100.
Team Chat Tourney At Sing Bingo
Sing Bingo on the other hand opt for the team bingo approach instead, with two hours of special games running every day between Monday and Friday. They change the theme each month to keep things interesting but they all work in the same way, with you randomly allocated a place on a team each time you enter a qualifying room. Each time you then go on to win a game, you pick up Sing Points for yourself and Tournament points for your team. At the end of each two hour session, all members of the team with the most points walk away with 2,500 Diamonds each.
Bingopoly At Tidy Bingo
One of our favourite bingo tournaments comes From Tidy Bingo though and combines bingo with the board game Monopoly. Nickie Shute who is one of the owners actually came up with Bingopoly many years ago whilst working for the now defunct Purely Bingo. It is now a regular feature in the exclusive Tidy Cupboard though and has proved to be a massive hit with their roomies. As the Bingopoly session progresses, you earn special rewards based on the number you bingo on, such things as:
- 4: Bingo Tax – Lose 10 Points
- 14: Glitz and Glam – Win 10 points
- 29: Miami Beach – Win 20 points
- 79: David – Win 50 points
There is a full list available on the Tidy Bingo blog and thousands of Loyalty Points up for grabs. The top point scorer picks up 20,000 LP’s and there is 10,000 for the runner up. In addition to this though, certain number such as 22 and 73 will see you rewarded with a pocket full of points too!
