Articles » Understanding bingo bonus

My mother always told me that nothing in life is free and what sounds too good to be true usually is. That does not necessarily apply to online bingo bonuses, but you should always be aware of the terms and conditions of playing.

The terms and conditions of the various bonus deals available in different online bingo rooms are fair and straightforward - they are not trying to rip players off.

The free sign up bonus is usually given as soon as you have created your account.

The first deposit bonus is usually given soon after your first deposit. It offers the advantage that you can increase your participation without immediately risking losing what you have on your bankroll. Redeeming your bonus can be a little complex, and bingo rooms operate a principle called bonus rollover amount. This amount indicates how many times you must play through your bonus before you can redeem it.

For example, if the bonus rollover amount is set to 1000 Euros for a 100 Euro bonus, it means that you need to bet 1000 Euros or ten times the 100 Euros to be able to redeem the bonus. It does not mean that you have to lose 1000 Euros, but within a certain time you must have purchased bingo cards with a total value of 1000 Euros. You can redeem the winnings from these coupons whenever you want. This is sometimes referred to as a 10x turnover, which means the same thing.

These bonuses are normally only available to new customers and it must also be mentioned that it is only possible to create one account per online bingo room.
