Newbie Bingo Rooms - Free Bingo Rooms
Online bingo sites continue to evolve with the way that they incentivise players to join them. The traditional no deposit bonus has always been popular but since 2018/19 this kind of offer has been dropped by most brands. These days bingo sites like to attract new players by opening up special rooms just for new players - newbie rooms. You usually don't have to make a deposit to access a newbie room, although this does depend on the platform.
For example Costa Bingo's Academy is accessible for a few days with no deposit. However you generally do need to create an account and may have to leave debit/credit details. This helps restrict multiple accounts, one of the reasons no deposit bonuses struggled in the early days. Newbie rooms often give players free bingo sessions for a limited time period (a few days). After this players will need to deposit to continue to play.
Prize pots are, as you probably expect, are very limited and it's worth noting that any wins are usually offered as bonus money with wagering terms rather than real cash. This means you would need to deposit and play through a few pounds before being able to make any withdrawals.

Some newbie rooms, for example at Ladbrokes, Betfred and William Hill are only accessible to new players that have made a first deposit. However, many sites are happy to offer free bingo to their depositing players as a reward. These rewards may be in the shape of access to a special room for a fixed period of time or tickets to a one off game that day. Unfortunately everything varies from site to site but that does make checking out different brands a bit more exciting.
