No Deposit Bingo Sites
Rewind a few years and pretty much every bingo brand would offer a no deposit bonus. On registration a player would be given a fixed amount of £5 up to £100 in order to play bingo. This money was usually paid as a bonus although winnings could sometimes be withdrawn. The NDP acted as a huge incentive to get players to sign up and was responsible - in our view - for the early popularity of online bingo.
Sadly the days of this kind of bonus have come to an end due to taxation changes. So is it possible to still enjoy no deposit bingo? The answer is yes but it's most certainly not as widespread. Instead of a fixed amount such as £5 no deposit and £20 no deposit, players are instead offered access to a newbie room, Bingo Academy or given spins on a selected slot game.

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 the new no wagering network.
No Deposit Bingo 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 to new players, 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.
Costa Bingo were the last Dragonfish powered brand to offer a no deposit bonus. Their £5 offer to new players was dropped when Ignite sold the brand to 888. The only major bingo brand that offers a fixed no deposit bonus is 32Red!
