New Bingo Player Welcome Bonus
Since no deposit bonus offers for new players has declined in popularity the first deposit bonus has taken on increased significance. New players who register usually have to make a minimum deposit of £5 or £10 (site dependent). In many cases this first deposit now needs to be wagered/spent in order to receive the reward available.
The amount of bonus, kind of bonus and type of varies from site to site as do wagering terms. If you're not a fan of wagering terms then seek a wagering free site such as Jackpotjoy or Heart Bingo. Be wary too of bingo bonuses versus gaming bonuses. The latter will incur much higher wagering terms.
If you like bingo tickets as a bonus then seek out the Real Money Network sites such as Bingo Storm and Bingo Idol. These kind of sites offer £50 to £100 in tickets, but players are limited to how and where the tickets may be spent.

Try Before You Buy
With the demise of no deposit bingo it can be difficult for new bingo players to "try before they buy". However by being canny you can get an idea for a software platform with limited outlay. For example Dragonfish brands such as Costa and Wink will allow newbies access to a free room for a short period. Once you've seen one Dragonfish powered bingo brand you've pretty much seen them all.
On Virtue Fusion there are options to play free bingo in newbie rooms too. Gala Bingo, The Sun Bingo and Paddy Power Bingo all have newbie rooms. Access to these may be granted after wagering a fixed amount. For example at Paddy Power Bingo you can play for up to 10 days after wagering just £1.
If you're new to depositing and playing online bingo then here are our top tips:
- 1. Select a well known brand such as Gala, Tombola or Jackpotjoy

- 3. Limit initial deposits to £5 or £10
- 4. Check the terms with respect to wagering and wagering terms
