First Deposit Bingo Bonus Offers
Aside from getting a free game of bingo, one of the most important elements of choosing which bingo site to play at is the deposit bonus. A deposit bonus is free money that a bingo site will offer you, when you pay to play bingo online.
Most UK bingo sites offer a first deposit bonus (usually around 200%) so if you deposit £10 the bingo site will give you a further £20 to play. Subsequent bonuses may also be offered on all further deposits you make. Note that this “free bingo money” can’t be withdrawn, although any winnings you earn can be! However, do watch out for clauses that may mean you need to deposit more money to claim your winnings.

Other important factor to watch for when making your first deposit is the minimum and maximum amounts you need to deposit to qualify for any bonus. In general £10 will be sufficient to qualify you although some brands are happy if you go as low as £5. Some sites will allow your first deposit to be £5 but won’t honour a bonus whilst others are happy for you to pile cash in (e.g. £100) but will only offer a bonus on say £20.
As with the freebie welcome offers, it can be a minefield to compare individual sites so just be wary of these things when funding.
