Hey there Fleas, I hope you’re keeping nice and safe with everything that’s going on. We’re going through a big change now and it’s vital we all pull together and do as instructed to stop the spread of this awful and potentially deadly virus. And while I’m on the subject of big changes, I noticed something huge this morning in the bingo world, you ready for it?
Umbingo, the popular wager-free bingo brand decided to ditch their usual software in favour of another! They certainly kept his one quiet as there was no hint of any upcoming changes. But, what does this mean for you the player? First major change is the amount of games – you’ve not got hundreds more to choose from than usual.
Doesn’t sound too bad does it? Other major changes that come from this new look bingo site include the welcome bonus; instead of free bingo tickets and bonus spins on your first deposit, you’ll have the chance to win up to 500 bonus spins now, what with being a spin the wheel site.
Still impressed? The promotions offer many ways to trigger additional bonus spins, free bingo tickets and cashback – and we all love cashback. Popular games include 9 Pots of Gold by Microgaming and Gameburger Studios, Mustang Gold by Pragmatic Play, Rainbow Riches by Barcrest and the crazy Rick and Morty Megaways by Blueprint Gaming.
Rolling in Bonus Spins
But are there any major changes that will affect you and your winnings? You bet! All bonuses now carry new wagering requirements. Gone are the days where you could keep 100% of your winnings, which is extremely disappointing. Those free games not only come with a win cap of £8 per 10 spins, but all your winnings will be subjected to 65x wagering! So, a £100 win would result in having to spend £6,500 in order to cash out! That’s phenomenal!
Despite the major changes, Umbingo still has a lot going; a huge progressive jackpot network of bingo rooms where as much as £10m can be won, free bingo, a loyalty scheme and lots of slot games. The emphasis now is on the online casino player; however, bingo goers still get a decent selection of rooms to choose from.
Why the sudden change? We have no idea, but we assume it had something to do with crediting players with real cash instead of bonuses with astronomical wagering requirements. If you were a player before the change, you may find you have to re-register.
If you give the welcome offer and other promotions the elbow, you can keep all of your winnings no questions asked. The only time you will be required to meet wagering is when accepting an offer, and with all offers needing to be claimed manually there’s no risk of triggering something you wish you hadn’t.
