In the world of online bingo it is often the case of keeping up with the Joneses’ when it comes to welcome bonuses and we regularly see big name brands mimic the deals on offer by their competitors. Whether it’s the reintroduction of a no deposit cash match deal or the opening of a ‘newbie’ room, it all means better choices for new players at various brands. The latest to move the welcome goal posts is Ladbrokes Bingo but we’re not overly impressed with the addition if we are honest.
Ladbrokes Bingo have recently added their very own ‘newbie’ room called the Guest Room. This is available to players who have met the requirement of depositing and spending £10 at the site, an additional deal to the £30 free they will receive as £20 bingo bonus and £10 games when the spend has been met.
The room is open for seven days from the date of registration BUT, and it is this that has disappointed us, if you register on day one but do not deposit until day three, you would only have four days access to the Guest Room. To our mind it is too ‘gun to your head’ to deposit instantly rather than giving the player the option to take a look around, check out other competitors and then make the decision to deposit.
Agreed, for the most part people who actually take the time to register with a brand will often deposit the same day, but still – we think the countdown should start at the point of deposit and not before.
The Guest Room At Ladbrokes Bingo
Whatever our opinion of the semantics, the Guest Room is still a welcome addition and offers the new player three chances a day to play some free bingo. Each session has a set prize pot though as per below:
- £100 prize pot from 10am through until 11am
- £60 prize pot from 4pm through until 5pm
- £100 prize pot from 7pm through until 8pm
They are certainly trying to make new players feel welcome at Ladbrokes Bingo!
