Playing bingo has always been a value game. It’s probably why the game was an instant success when it was first played across America in the 1930s and why its popularity spread so quickly when the game travelled over to the UK and Europe with American GIs during the Second World War.
For a little money down, people had the fun of playing and the possibility of winning a significant prize in this simple game of chance. Of course, the prize values became increasingly large over the years and now that the game is online, the jackpot prizes can reach some amazing amounts, even though the stake you put down to play has remained low.
Today, online bingo is even better value as many of the bingo sites include free games in their regular gaming schedules. This is a way of rewarding bingo players for their loyalty to the site. If you’ve put money into a bingo site account, this entitles you to join in the free games on the schedule whenever you feel like it – and even though the games are free to enter, they still have real cash jackpots. Granted, these can be pretty small amounts, but when you’re paying nothing to play, who’s complaining?
Bet365 Bingo is just one example of a site that offers free bingo games alongside the regular games. As well as offering players 200 free bingo tickets worth £10 when they first join the site, before they even deposit, there is also Superbooks bingo to play too. This is where you can play for free or choose to upgrade your tickets by paying just a few pence to win even bigger prizes. Superbooks games go on in the Super Star Bonanza room at 1pm and 6pm UK time, seven days a week. And you can also join exclusive £1,500 games daily at 1.30pm and 6.30pm UK time, so these freebie games have some pretty decent prizes attached to them! It’s up to you whether you play for free or pay a little extra to have the chance to win big!
As well as the free games, there are always plenty of other promotions going on at the main bingo sites. The most obvious of these is the welcome bonus that you get when you first deposit money into an account. Most sites will match or double the amount a player first pays in – meaning that players get even better value when playing online bingo.
