No Deposit Bingo

A no deposit bingo is used as an incentive to get you to join the various bingo sites that are around. It's a useful option as it allows you as a player to take a look around a particular site, try a few games and hopefully encourage you to play for real.

In the early days of online bingo a fixed sum bonus - for example 5 no deposit and 20 no deposit - was often given to new players just for registering. These days you usually are required to give credit or debit card details, but you don't need to fund your account to claim the bonus.

Whilst some sites still offer fixed sums to players, changes to gambling taxation has meant changes to the type of no deposit bonus offered. For example, in October 2017 the Cozy Games brands which offered the bulk of no deposit bonuses switched to newbie rooms to incentivise new players.

Many sites, especially the larger brands, have dropped no deposit offers altogether. Slot spins and bingo tickets are also used to attract new players.

Can I Keep My Winnings?

It'd be great if you could just sign up for a no deposit bonus and then withdraw any winnings! However, the reality is that it's highly unlikely any bingo site will allow you to do this. Most wins from no deposit offers or in free rooms are often paid out as a bonus.

No Deposit Doesn't Mean Free Money

Free bingo money is pretty much a thing of the past. If you receive a bonus then it will quite often carry a wagering term. This is the amount you need to spend in real cash before you can withdraw winnings from the site. Wagering terms apply to the lump sum bonuses, wins from bonus spins, wins from free games and even wins as prizes. The amount will vary from site to site and offer to offer. The best advice is always check the small print!!

No Wagering Required

Large no deposit bonuses are attractive, but remember wagering terms can tie you in to a site. You may find that lower no deposit bonuses are a better option or even not accepting the freebie. For something significantly different there's Blighty Bingo who are on a new no wagering network.

No Deposit Trivia

Did you know that Game Village were the first bingo site to offer players 20+ of free bingo with no deposit - they increased that to 30 but in 2013, after a takeover, dropped it back to a more standard tenner before doing away with it altogether. The Cyberbingo Network used to offer free trials of up to 100, but this network closed in 2011, perhaps highlighting the folly of these kind of promotions in a desperate attempt to encourage players to sign up.
