One thing that a player would never get in a land bingo hall was a bonus. They were definitely part of the bingo package in any way. Bonuses first began to appear in online casinos where the players, who till then played in land casinos, were used to getting what were known as “comps”. Comps were never given in cash but in free meals, hotel rooms and even more.
When casinos went online it was a lot more difficult to give meals and rooms so the online casino managers started to give out cash bonuses instead for the members to enjoy playing on. And when the first online bingo rooms began to spring up the decision was made to continue that welcome tradition there too.
Online Bingo bonuses work in a few different ways. When a new player decides to join a particular online bingo room they are entitled to what is known as a welcome bonus. This can be often as much as 200% of the player’s first deposit which is a great way to get used to playing online for real money while being reasonably heavily subsidized by the casino management. Many players join every online bingo room that they can find online just to get the welcome bonus. While this is understandable, the online bingo room management soon picked up on this phenomena and raised the minimum wagering requirements to higher levels so that it was less an attractive proposition for these “bonus hunters”
The majority of players are content to find a good bingo room and stick with it. A player who deposits regularly will always be entitled to a match deposit bonus, although usually less than generous than the welcome bonus. By the same token the minimum wagering requirements will also be a lot lower so its swings and roundabouts!
In addition to the match deposit bonuses which is always welcome to most players there are also the loyalty point schemes that most serious online bingo rooms operate. Loyalty point schemes operate in such a fashion that for every penny that an online casino member plays on, a very small percentage of that money is set aside in the form of points. While the percentages can vary, it doesn’t take too long before an active player is starting to clock up points. When these points reach a certain level they can be exchanged for credits or even cashed in and withdrawn without any wagering requirements.
It’s just your favourite online bingo site’s way of saying thanks.
