When it comes to testing the water with free bingo there are a few things you should take into consideration before choosing your bingo site. First and foremost it should be the terms and conditions of any free bingo offer. Whilst this is a great way to try the games on offer at any given site it’s worth noting that should you win a large amount of money it is very rare that you will be unable to withdraw any winnings before making a deposit.
With sites like Cheeky Bingo, the first ever site that launched offering free bingo all day, every day, they host multiple free bingo rooms in which you can play for real cash prizes. These prizes range from £1 to £10 for players who have yet to make a deposit at the site but increase to slight more impressive jackpots when a deposit has been made.
It could be that you are lucky enough to get your bingo bank balance to the £30 minimum withdrawal amount just by playing the free bingo games and not making a deposit but a minimum of £5 deposit is required in order to make these funds available for withdrawal.
The same can be said about any internet bingo site that offers a free trail bonus, a no deposit required welcome bonus. Foxy Bingo recently offered a £20 bonus to all new players but again, should you be lucky enough to win a big jackpot using this money, a small deposit would be required to make the money available to withdraw to your bank.
However some internet bingo sites aren’t as accommodating as the Cashcade brands. If you win money when using a bonus offer and have yet to make a deposit, the money won will forever live in your bingo bonus account and never be available for withdrawal. Such sites also operate a system where a withdrawal often results in the loss of bonus money.
Check the terms and conditions because whilst the offer of testing the water with free bingo gives novice players the opportunity to “try before they buy” you really aren’t going to see any real return any you make a deposit to the site.
