History tell us that in times of recession gambling actual increases and not decreases as many would think. Also as many face harder times financially, the average punter is far more likely to gamble online than in the real world. If you think about the average bingo player who normally plays once per week at their local bingo hall they can simply reduce their costs for expenses such as travel and perhaps food and beverages by playing online.
Those who run online bingo sites are no mugs and they know that in these trouble financial times they have a greater than ever potential client base. The free money offers and other enticements have never been better. The simple truth is that there are hundreds of free pounds waiting for you at online bingo sites that you can claim quickly and without any risk to your own pocket.
There are many times of bonuses so let’s quickly cover these so you know exactly what you are looking for. A no deposit bonus requires as is says no deposit from the player. If for example a bingo site offers you a £20 no deposit bonus, then you simply sign up to the site and £20 is credited to your account. Some sites do request that you enter either credit or debit card details for age verification although no deduction is made from your card. Most sites though do not ask for card details. Some sites offer match bonuses also known as deposit bonuses. These though require you to deposit a specified amount which is matched by the actual site. For example deposit £10 and get £10 free. So from the above you should now understand that for free bingo money we should be looking for no deposit bonuses.
To make our quest to find free bingo money even easier there are hundreds if not thousands of bingo affiliate sites on the internet. These range from poor sites that mostly contain dozens of banners with very little detail about the actual offers, to better sites that just list a dozen or so UK accredited and regulated site. The better affiliate sites will even have a page to each bingo site with full details of the sites new sign up offers. The quality affiliate sites will never list every bingo site as they cherry pick the best of the best to keep their readers happy.
I will write another article about the best strategy for using free bingo money but I will give you a little advice now. Firstly all online bingo sites also have a slots (fruit machines) section and many of these have big payouts. Split your free money 50/50 so that 50% you use for bingo and 50% you use for slots. Remember also that the bigger online bingo games take place during Friday to Sunday nights and these offer much better payouts than games than run at other times. It would be very foolish to waste your free bingo money by playing during week days when the top prize is only around £50 compared to hundreds or even thousands during the prime times.
