Free Play Bonuses All But Finished

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.

Wear The Crown At Kingdom Of Bingo

Thursday, Sep. 1st 2016 7:02 AM

Another new day, another new bingo site and this time the site has been launched by Mandalay Media / Intertain. Like many sites before it, Kingdom Of Bingo is rolling out the red carpet for the new players with a £5 free play bonus.

The bonuses continue at Kingdom of Bingo if you opt to make a deposit of between £5 and £20. Your initial transaction is eligible for a cash match bonus of 300%! As well as all of this, you’ll also be given access to numerous free play bingo rooms the moment you have created your new account.

Tuck In To Sweet Shop Bingo

Tuesday, Aug. 9th 2016 7:56 AM

When it comes to launching new bingo sites, one of the most prolific of companies is the Intertain / Mandalay Media company. To date there are 20 all powered by the new BingoS software under this hat, the most recent to join their ranks being Sweet Shop Bingo.

However, when we popped along to Sweet Shop Bingo to claim our free bonus, we were shocked to find that rather than being part of the internal network for this company, the newest addition has joined the Dragonfish network. Does this mean a new direction for Intertain / Mandalay Media?

New Site Season Bingo Boasts £5 Free Offer

Tuesday, Nov. 10th 2015 7:20 AM

It would appear that the trend for new bingo sites currently is to offer a no deposit required bonus to attract new players. It was only a couple of days we told of Spin Genie Bingo and their £5 free offer, today we turn our attention to another new site, Season Bingo, and their £5 free no deposit bonus.

Season Bingo is the latest title to join an already impressive portfolio of sites from the Mandalay Media / Intertain group but if we’re honest, we just don’t get it. Visit the site and you’ll find it adorned with an array of Christmas related items – Santa Claus, Christmas baubles, snow and a few Christmas trees too. Isn’t it all a bit too, well, seasonal?

Parlay Software To Change Hands

Wednesday, Jun. 24th 2015 7:19 AM

Intertain weren’t a particularly well known name in the UK until quite recently when they bought up a number of Gamesys Bingo brands including Jackpot Joy, and now it seems the brand is bent on world domination as it snaps up the Parlay software too! Now the purchase of Gamesys we can understand, it’s a fantastic software package with some real gems like Jackpot Joy using it, but Parlay isn’t that big with UK players and we’ve seen several recent closures.

If you’re unfamiliar with the name then the Parlay software powers smaller, lesser known sites such as Astro Bingo, and since a selection of these sites moved to the G2 Gtech software it has even less appeal.

Let It Go With Frozen Bingo

Saturday, May. 23rd 2015 7:27 AM

A new site opened this week and you could be mistaken for thinking that you’ll be welcomed through the castle doors by Elsa and Anna at Frozen Bingo. This is not the case and you won’t see a Sven at the site either but what you will find is an Olaf type character and a selection of bow tie wearing bingo ball pigeons. Additionally, the welcome laid out for you as you slip on into this new Mandalay Media / Intertain site includes a £5 free, no deposit required welcome bonus.

Frozen Bingo is the latest name to join the ranks of Mandalay sites that offer games powered by the 888 / Cassava collaboration. As we have come to expect, alongside the no deposit required bonus new players can take advantage of a 300% cash match deal on first deposits too. The minimum deposit required for this bonus is £5 and the maximum amount eligible is £20.

New Site – Monkey Bingo

Saturday, Nov. 8th 2014 7:39 AM

Monkey Bingo is the latest brand to join the others all part of the Mandalay Media sites, the last of which to open was Treasure Bingo. The site only opened on 4th November 2014 but this brand isn’t ‘monkeying around’, offering a £10 no deposit required bonus to new players in an effort to attract them into their virtual jungle.

With so many great bingo brands under their belts, Mandalay Media have got it right again with Monkey Bingo when it comes to their welcome offers and cash match deals on deposits. However, where we feel they fall down is the lack of transparency with regards to the fact that many games are linked between one brand and the others. The biggest of these is the £10k free game offered each and every week.
