Bountiful Bingo Bonuses

Now look here everyone! Just about every online bingo site offers you a jolly big bonus just for joining their site and spending a few shillings. Tally Ho! This usually involves giving you money. Free money! Lob them a few bob, and they’ll chuck in half a crown as well! Usually, this is given as an introductory offer with your first deposit, and sometimes your second and third too. There are a few things to remember though…

Firstly, it’s not real money – you can only use it to buy tickets or spend on games on the site. You can’t exchange your bonus for cash. It’s more like having a gift voucher or gift card. Or if you’re really vintage like me: Green Shield Stamps!

Another thing is, there’s a bit of maths involved. Not a problem though, right? After all, bingo is all about the numbers! Bonuses are usually given as a proportion of your deposit. So a 100% bonus is a bit like Buy One Get One Free (BOGOF): If, for example you deposit £10, you get £10 as a bonus for free. But most sites now offer even more. So look at it like this: if 100% is like Buy One Get ONE Free, then 200% is like Buy One Get TWO Free, and 300% is like Buy One Get THREE free. They don’t have offers like THAT down the NAAFI. We’ll explain more in the links on the right.

So what’s the catch? Well of course there are some. Those juicy bonuses are bound to have some dastardly rules and regulations attached. No one really gives anything away for free do they? Well, on every site, you will find a link to a “Terms & Conditions” section. Yes, yes we know: nobody actually reads those do they? Well, they ARE boring. But they are also important. Because buried deep inside is what are called “wagering conditions”. These are the things you have to do before the site will let you get your hands on your hard earned winnings. And you really should know these. I mean, online bingo is fun, but you still want to win some real dosh don’t you? So pay attention 007!

What they normally involve is telling you the amount of dosh you have to spend before you can actually get your hands on your money. This varies. A lot. Typically, you will need to wager (deposit and spend real money) eight times your bonus + deposit before you can make a withdrawal. So if you deposit £10 and get a bonus of £20, you will need to spend £240 before you can make a withdrawal (8 x £30). Drat! But some sites require even more. Those TV casino type operations often ask for 99 x your bonus. Which could be thousands of pounds! Well someone’s got to pay for that TV time! But on the other hand, there are some sites which have no wagering requirements at all! I say… Jolly good show!

So have no fear. Our undercover operators check every site we review for you and tell you what the score is! Of course, the legal chappies tell us to tell you that you should always check out these things for yourself. But you probably won’t. Life’s too short and all that.

This is not an online bingo site. So what are we doing a review of it for then? Well Busy Bee is an online bingo review site. A bit like us here at Keep Calm really. But we’re happy to recommend them because they and we share a similar attitude to the job we do.
