Welcome bingo bonus
First deposit bingo bonus
Many online bingo sites will give you a welcome bonus when you make your first deposit. The size of the bonus is often tied to the size of your deposit, e.g. “100% bonus on your first deposit up to €200” or “300% bonus on your first deposit up to €400”.
Some bingo sites have a more extensive welcome package that offers bonus also on subsequent deposits, e.g. your first three deposits into your bingo account.
No deposit welcome bingo bonus
A no deposit welcome bingo bonus is typically quite small, e.g. €10 or €25.
With this bonus money, you can try out the bingo site without having to make a deposit first.
You will usually need to sign-up and confirm your email adress before you can get the no deposit bingo bonus.
If you win something when playing bingo with your bonus, you can probably not withdraw it without making a deposit first.
Reload bingo bonus
Is your bingo account getting close to zero? Don’t be surprised if you get a message from the bingo site offering you a reload bingo bonus if you make a new deposit.
Refer-a-friend bingo bonus
Playing bingo with friends is fun, and bingo sites are well aware that having a good reputation among current players is a great way of getting more players to sign-up. To encourage player to invite their friends to the bingo hall, many bingo sites offer a special refer-a-friend bingo bonus. Typically, you must invite your friend using a special procedure, so that the bingo site can keep track of the process. Your friend will click a link and sign-up through that link. You will either get the bingo bonus when your friend signs-up or (more commonly) when he/she makes their first deposit or play their first bingo game for real money.
Win bingo bonus money
To keep their players happy, many bingo sites have contests and draws where you can win bingo bonus. Signing up for the newsletter (and acutally reading it) is a good idea. If the bingo site has a blog, make sure you visit it often to find out about new offers.
Pay special attention to the chat rooms even if you don’t feel chatty, because chat games where you can win bingo bonus or free bingo tickets are common.
