Polo Bingo is the sister site of Moon Bingo and both brands are currently offering the chance to earn free bingo tickets for a game where the prize is a brand new VW Polo car. Today we noticed that Polo Bingo have made a ballsup, excuse the pun, because they are encouraging new players to register by offering them two free tickets to the game.
Now we consider this a bit of a faux pas because players already members of Polo Bingo have to earn free bingotickets by spending money at the site to earn points. That or advertised the Polo Bingo brand on their Facebook pages. In our opinion if new players are being offered free tickets, players who have already made a deposit and are loyal to this internet bingo brand should also get two free tickets without having to advertise the brand or tell their friends about it. This should be a choice for active players not a pre-requisite to getting their free tickets!
We noticed the offer from Polo Bingo on Facebook; here is the clip:
What becomes increasingly frustrating for players is how some of the best offers are made to attract new players. Polo Bingo are not the only brand guilty of this. What internet bingo sites seem to overlook is that yes, you want as many players through your virtual doors but you also want the players who are there, depositing at your site, to stay there.
With so many new bingo sites opening and many on the same platform as Polo Bingo can this, or any other brand, really risk ostracising the players who are already depositing for the sake of a player or two who MIGHT be a high roller?
As a footnote, you can earn two free tickets as a depositing player if you join the Polo Bingo Facebook page and “like” it so all your friends can join – something that the newly registered player doesn’t have to do.
As a matter of professional courtesy to the team at Polo Bingo we forwarded our views to the site before publishing our opinion and this is the response received:
I appreciate the email, but it is not entirely correct.
We allow our ACTIVE members to earn as much as 7 free tickets without making a single deposit!
Please see the attachment – this is the page our active Polo Bingo members see once they log in.
Also – please go to the Polo Bingo Facebook fan page. It shows how an active member can receive free tickets without spending any money.
I hope that now that you’ve seen the Facebook page, you’ll understand that we DO appreciate our active members. These members receive dozens of special offers, including free jackpots, prize games, special coupons and special competitions on regular basis. This applies to both Moon and Polo.
Obviously Polo Bingo and ourselves have agreed to differ on our opinion of this matter and I would like to take this opportunity to say that whilst I may not agree in principle with the differentiating of new and active internet bingoplayers at Polo Bingo, it doesn’t distract from the fact that I like the site as a whole.
As a player, what do you think? After all this is just my opinion, yours may differ.
