Life, every aspect, is a learning curve and today this was bought home by an email we received from an internet bingo player. Without wanting to sound like I am the font of all bingo knowledge, prior to today I felt that I had a good understanding of the game. However, even as a player, there are things I miss but luckily we have a group of readers, the players at the coal face of internet bingo, that fill in the blanks.
The email we received today was from a player at Posh Bingo and the outcome of the email led to me learning something new. One of the things that I try to insist on is that all our readers check any internet bingo sites Terms and Conditions, something that I had failed to do when playing at Posh Bingo. For no other reason than being presumptuous, the presumption was that as a Cassava bingo site the minimum withdrawal amount for this site would be the same as all others under Cassava, £30.
The email caught our attention because the player had noted a change regarding the way in which free bingo winnings were added to his account. According to the player prior to yesterday afternoon any winnings derived from the free bingo games, following an initial deposit, could be withdrawn. My initial reaction was that it would be unlikely for a player to ever reach the minimum deposit requirement of £30 just by playing the free bingo games at Posh Bingo. This was when the £10 minimum deposit at Posh Bingo came to light.
The change at Posh Bingo appears to be that any winnings from the free to play internet bingo rooms no longer go onto your cash balance but are added to your bonus account. This means that not only are they no longer available for use when playing the instant win games at Posh Bingo but they cannot be withdrawn.
Posh Bingo is run by the same people behind Wink Bingo and a look at their terms and conditions shows a minimum withdrawal of £10 as well. Could it be that any winnings derived from free bingo games at Wink Bingo are now also added to your bonus account rather than your cash account?
We are currently awaiting clarification from Posh Bingo and will keep you posted on the outcome.
