All about Bingo Bonus

You might have heard about casino bonuses. Bingo being one of the prominent casino games, the bonuses offered in the Bingo game are no less than any other online casino games. All these bonuses are a type of marketing strategy to attract players at different stages of the casino game.

The first type of bonus offered is the sign-up bonus. As the name indicates, a sign-up bonus is offered to the new players when they make their first deposit. Some casino companies also offer these sign-up bonuses on the subsequent plays as well.

The second type of bonus and perhaps the most popular type of bonus is the ‘no-deposit bonus’. As understood by the title, this form of bonus can be claimed by the players without a need to deposit any of their money. This bonus is much useful for the casino company in attracting new players.

Another type of bonus is the non-cashable bonus. This type of bonus is also called ‘sticky or phantom’ bonus. This type of bonus results as a part of the player’s balance but the player cannot claim the bonus as cash. The player will realize this during the cash out time as this non-cashable bonus disappears when the player cashes out.

One more type of bonus is the comp points which can be usually exchanged for cash, prizes etc. But, the amount of cash in this type of bonus is quite less compared to other types and it generally depends on the game selection.

Bingo is one of the famous casino games, which is purely a game of chance. Each player receives a random set of numbers. The caller selects a set of random numbers and announces them. The players mark off the numbers in their sets against the ones announced by the called. The player who completes one line or multiple lines or a full house before other players will be deemed a winner.

The winner’s set will include the number which was called last. The factor that how soon the game gets completed will be determined by different aspects such as the speed of the caller, the number of players, and the ratio of numbers that constitute the win, and the variety of numbers in the selection.
