There has been a lot of talk of late about free bingo no deposit eventually disappearing from our favourite online bingo sites, in favour of other more popular promotions; more than likely to revolve around free money. But how far is this from the truth. Free bingo remains as popular as it ever has done, so surely the online bingo sites wouldn’t do something as foolish as scrapping free bingo, would they?
Bingo is big business to its owners, and like any business they must adapt with the times, and in a tightening economic climate, can they afford to keep handing out winnings from free bingo? Is there any truth at all to the rumours that free bingo will soon disappear, and will we one day finally lose free bingo forever?
It really depends on how you look at it. Free bingo in its most pure sense, such as the ability to play free bingo in free bingo rooms, for real money; this is as popular as ever. There is absolutely not one shred of evidence to suggest that this form of free bingo will go anywhere. Basically, this form of free bingo involves players logging into their online bingo site, clicking on the free bingo room and playing bingo for absolutely nothing, with the chance to be in to win one pound jackpots. It might not seem like much, but since it is free, there is nothing wrong with that. It is hugely popular, and a very good way of bingo sites to keep their players in the green. This however isn’t the source of the rumours that are abounding across the internet though.
Instead those rumours are referring to no deposit required bonuses, which are in a sense, free bingo games too. For over six months now, we have gradually seen the decline of no deposit required bingo bonuses from many bingo sites. But before we can see where they are going, you must first understand what a no deposit required bingo bonus really is.
A no deposit required bingo bonus is a bonus that is given to players who sign up and open an account. It is given to players when they register, usually when their email address has been verified. Then the player can check out the bingo site and play bingo with their free £5 for example, to see if they enjoy the site. Not to be forgotten are the huge number of players that go from site to site just playing with the free bingo funds, that is until they realise they will need to make a deposit to be able to withdraw and money that they have won. They have the opportunity to win real money, although if they like the site, they will have to make a deposit to claim it. It is a method that has been used by bingo sites successfully for years now, because it works, and most of the time gamers wish to continue playing, and so will make a deposit to their account, becoming paying members in the process.
However, as more and more bingo sites offer massive welcome bonuses, the need for a minute £5 seems to be cast aside. The free bingo sites that remain often have big wagering requirement attachments on them, meaning that you must wager the bonus many times before you are able to accept it, usually around 4 times, or make a fairly large deposit before you can withdraw it. These are less appealing qualities of a bonus to many players, when compared to the big welcome bonuses.
They have been dwindling, but it is still too early to say for certain that free bingo (at least in the no deposit bonus sense) will be gone. The good news is, free bingo will certainly not be going anywhere anytime soon.
