Getting Started With Online Bingo Has Never Been Easier

Sep 4, 2008
A list of frequently asked questions for new online Bingo players.

Is Online Bingo Safe?

There are many forums and blogs dedicated to making people aware of safe and unsafe Bingo websites. If you are unsure if a Bingo website can be trusted, visit one of the many review sites or forums for more information before playing. Here below are a few simple tips for helping newbie's find a great Bingo website that offers safety and security. First, look for websites that offer "Privacy Policies".

As well, never use a credit card online unless it's a safe and secure server. You should look for information regarding secure servers when checking out or paying any fees. If it looks unsafe - beware and never release your private and financial information.

As a final act; perhaps you should play at free Bingo websites and ask fellow Bingo enthusiasts for their advice regarding pay Bingo websites.

What are the odds of Winning?

The odds of winning at Bingo are fairly good. However, your odds do increase based upon the number of cards or players at a game; the fewer the players - the better chances or odds you have of winning.

As well, your odds are increased when you play multiple cards- just be careful- for those that are new, it's hard too keep track and manage multiple cards effectively.

What are chat games?

Unlike the Bingo halls located throughout the UK, Bingo chat rooms allow talking between players- in fact, it's encouraged. Chat games are basically just chat rooms where Bingo is the shared culture; you chat and talk while playing a great game of Bingo. There are all different types of Bingo chat rooms- many times it's a great place to meet a friend and learn about the game. Most chat rooms are friendly and offer those that join a lot of great advice.

What is a progressive jackpot?

Progressive jackpots are Bingo games played with set limits; jackpots are only won if the winner succeeds within the limits that are preset. For example, let's say you join a Bingo game with a progressive jackpot; the host explains that the only way to win this Bingo game is to Bingo within 15 calls; hence after the 15 number is called- the game is over- no Bingo; no winner.

What is a deposit bonus?

Deposit bonuses are a great incentive that many Bingo websites offer their potential clients; it's sort of like a sign-up bonus. You basically get free money for joining a particular website- usually, the more you deposit; the better the bonus!

How quickly are you paid at winning?

Most Bingo websites have varying rules regarding payments and getting paid for your winnings. In general, it's usually instant not days to receive your winnings but this will depend on how much is won. If you registered using a credit/debit card or have an online PayPal account, you will get your money faster than most. Prior to ever depositing any money- check the websites terms and conditions; read thoroughly the section regarding winnings and payouts.

How do you go about complaining?

Most online Bingo websites have a customer service department that can handle any situation; as well, if you have a problem with an individual player- you can always consult the host or the chat monitor. If you feel the Bingo site is not dealing with your issue, you can always go to their regional governing body to log your compliant.
