The last quarter of 2017 is going to be a big one for online bingo. Bonus changes are coming into effect across a number of networks which could have huge impacts on depositors and new players. We know that Cozy Games for example will be removing their no deposit bonus offers very shortly. Getting ahead of them though asre the 15 Network who have made their own changes to new player welcome offers!
The 15 Network, powered by Jumpman Gaming, consists of 29 different brands including Dove, Showreel, Spice, Rocket, Zingo and our own Clucky. Recent new additions include WTG and Bingo Boutique. Each site offered new players the same welcome package - a 200% bonus plus spin the wheel bonus on a deposit of £10. Depositors also got access to free bingo!
Win Up To 500 Spins
However, as of October 2017 all sites now have a new welcome offer. The deposit bonus and spin the wheel bonus has been replaced by the Mega Wheel. This works in a similar to the new player offer that's available on the Jumpman Slots Network.
When you deposit £10 at a 15 Network site you'll be invited to spin the Mega Wheel. This bonus reel gives you the chance to win spin spins on Fluffy Favourites. There's also the opportunity to win a £10 Amazon Voucher plus you could be unlucky and get nothing. A win is not guaranteed but it is possible to win up to 500 spins.
Bonuses For Depositors
Any wins from the bonus spins are paid as a "Instant Games Bonus" and this can't be withdrawn. The win bonus carries a wagering term of x40 plus there's a maximum of £250 that can be converted to withdrawable cash once wagering requirements have been fulfilled.
Regular players aren't overlooked with these changes. Every deposit of £20 or more will also attract a Mega Wheel spin plus VIP players will get an enhanced wheel to spin! Note that all bonuses are lost when you withdraw your money.
More Changes To Come
The changes have also meant the end of loyalty points and bingo bonuses at the various sites. All bonuses will now be paid as IG bonuses and the bingo rooms are now cash only. The aim is to make things much clearer for players when it comes to understanding the money in their accounts.
As mentioned above, 15 Network aren't the only ones making changes. Dragonfish are making improvements, Bgo are dropping their wagering terms and there's going to be a huge change on Cozy Bingo sites. How these effect players and brands remains to be seen - but there could well be a very tough few month as everyone comes to terms with all the changes as well as dealing with compliance issues and the media's current attack on gambling.
