What is it that makes online bingo so popular? Could it be the choice of bingo games and the winning opportunities? There’s no definitive answer to this but one thing I know for sure is that if you slap high wagering requirements on your offers, you’re going to be about as popular as a mouse sat in a room full of kittens.
One major factor players look for is the terms and conditions associated with the bingo offers. Naturally, they’re not going to just hand money over into your bankroll for you to withdraw, so there will be some stipulations to what you can do when you receive bonuses.
More and more operators are choosing the ‘no wagering’ mechanic; this means absolutely everything is awarded as real cash. Whether you win £10 or £10K, the money will be yours to keep – 100%.
There are hundreds of online bingo sites to choose from, some have been around for decades, so what do they do? Get left behind and lose a lot of customers or move with the times? The former is suicide. I’ve cast more than just an eye at Sweet Shop Bingo in the past, but the hefty wagering requirements always kept be at bay…
…until now. A new year’s resolution must have been made by the team behind the tasty little bingo site because not only have they boosted their welcome offer, they’ve picked apart the terms and conditions too.
Out with the Old and In with the New:
The old 300% welcome bonus has been given the elbow in favour of a 600% bonus. A minimum deposit of just £10 will instantly see your account credited with 60 bingo tickets and 50 bonus spins (credited to any of the popular mobile. The value of both is worth £50. New players will be able to play for a chance at winning £50 in the daily treat bingo room – the perfect place to start your bingo winning adventure as these types of bingo games offer three chances to win.
If you’re lucky enough to call house, the winnings will be credited as real cash and can be withdrawn at any time. All that fancy red tape has been cut. A welcome move in my opinion. In terms of bonus spins, these do still carry wagering requirements, so any winnings will need to be played through a total of 99x which is astronomical. You’ve been warned.
Aside from the disappointing bonus spins, the new offer is delightful. To keep you playing, there’s another wager-free offer on your second deposit; 200% on a £20 deposit. Use code: SWEET20 for 40 free tickets to the daily treat room and an additional 20 spins. If you’d rather not use your spins, just leave them – that way you’ll have no wagering to meet.
What do you make of the new lip-smacking welcome offer? It gets a thumbs up from me.
