When we first visited BingOn we were immediately impressed with the bingo software and as such made the decision to list the site in our bingo reviews section. However, having calmed down from our initial excitement of a new internet bingo software (NYX Interactive) and a closer look at the terms and conditions, we wanted to let our readers know about the BingOn bonus issues.
BingOn advertise a 200% cash match bonus on your initial deposit and whilst this is fairly standard to the world of internet bingo, earning the bonus at BingOn leaves a lot to be desired. Your bonus, unlike at other sites, is not credited to your account as soon as you make a deposit and the wagering requirements to release the bonus are extortionate to say the least.
On a £10 deposit you are entitled to a £20 bingo bonus BUT in order to qualify the bonus you have to have wagered £80 at BingOn, a difficult task with just £10 in your account as there are very few players currently at theirinternet bingo site to make the pot prizes, even if you do win, enough to earn a further £70 you need to spend to release your bonus.
We have of course been in touch with BingOn directly and expressed are concerns about the bingo bonus and wagering requirements. The feedback we received was as follows:
“All deposits count towards the wagering requirements of the first 80GBP and bear in mind that our other bonuses are far easier to qualify. I.e. regular customers get a good deal. The bonus is 200% after all and we do have a competitive second deposit offer and a regular deposit bonus. All with easier qualification requirements AND we give away plenty of bonuses in our chat where the winnings also count towards the qualification requirements for the release of the bonus.”
We have left this issue with BingOn after expressing our displeasure and they have said that they are “working with their software provider to fix the problem”. The point of this article is simply to give our readers the tools to make an informed decision.
