No Free Play Bonus

Free Play
Bonuses Lost

We’ve been in the online bingo business for quite a number of years now and in that time have seen many changes to the bonus structure of welcome packages at various sites. We remember when the first free play bonus was introduced and how once one site had offered a no deposit required bonus, many others followed suit.

This type of bonus became an expectation by players for a while and then slowly, we saw the number of sites offering this sort of bonus reduce. However, there has always been a substantial number of brands offering a no deposit required bonus, that was until the introduction of the new tax on free play bonuses introduced in August 2017.

Sky Bingo Time Limited Bonus Change

Thursday, Jul. 6th 2017 7:40 AM

When it comes to welcome bonuses, we often see brands make changes in an effort to attract new players. Sky Bingo is one site that certainly likes to try and keep up with its competitors in that area. A recent change to the structure of the newbie offer now sees new and existing players able to grab a £10 no deposit required bonus.

However, whilst this looks good on paper, actually it’s not all that it is cracked up to be. Yes, Sky Bingo are giving you £10 free but over a 10 day period. You have to login every day to be able to claim a £1 daily bonus from the site, it’s not all credited to your account at once. You have to enter the code 10FREE to receive this bonus.

Loony Bingo Change Their Welcome Package

Tuesday, Oct. 11th 2016 7:54 AM

Recently there was a change to the welcome offer extended to new players signing up for their first account with Loony Bingo. Prior to the change, newbies were offered £30 of bingo tickets without a deposit being required but these were allocated automatically on the next Daily Grand game.

As well as the free bingo tickets from Loony Bingo, players were previously offered a 400% cash match bonus on their initial deposit. This was a hybrid deal with 200% being given as a bingo bonus and 200% allocated as a games bonus. The new offer sees a drop in both offers; the no deposit aspect is now just £7 and the cash match deal on first deposit just 300%.

32Red Bingo Welcome Deal Slashed

Thursday, Jan. 21st 2016 7:40 AM

The Microgaming bingo brands were probably one of the most prolific when it came to offering no deposit free play offers until about six months ago (excluding Cozy of course). However, at that time we saw many drop the free money welcome offer entirely with the exception of a couple, 32Red Bingo being one that retained their £10 free play offer.

Sadly, this deal has now been slashed to just half the original value at 32Red Bingo. New players are no longer credited with £10 free play upon registration and entering any bingo room for the first time, instead just £5 free play awaits you.

Honk Your Horn With Foxy Bingo

Wednesday, Apr. 23rd 2014 7:30 AM

It wasn’t that long ago that one of the other writers here at Playing Bingo bagged herself a brand new TV driving the Foxy Bingo prize bus at the well-known online bingo site. Now there is a new free play game on offer at the site with £200,000 worth of cash and prizes to be given away in just two weeks! The new game is called Honk Your Horn and features a caricature of Cristo in his traffic warden’s uniform!

In the past we have challenged each member of the team when Foxy Bingo offer these free play games but this time we’ll just be recording what I win every day. I started off well, £1.50 on the first day so I’m hoping to have bagged around £20 by the end of the promotion. You can Honk Your Horn every day at Foxy from now until 4th May.
