What is a no deposit bonus?

A bingo no deposit offer is just that – free bingo, slot spins, or bonus credits granted to players without a requirement to fund your account. It’s a great way to test the waters and even cashout real money winnings.

What are wagering requirements and can I keep what I win?

Wagering requirements or turnover terms, is a phrase used to describe how many times a bonus must be played through before a withdrawal can be requested. For example, if a 100% welcome offer carries a 4x wagering requirement and you deposit £10, you’ll receive £10 in bonuses. Your total playthrough will be £40 before you’re able to cash out your winnings. Slot game bonuses are often higher and can be as much as 99x.

More and more bingo sites are opting for a fair gaming experience. With wager-free offers, everything you see is guaranteed to be without wagering requirements and maximum win limits. While not all offers from all operators are wager-free, many still permit players to keep their winnings once the playthrough has been met.

What is the difference between cashable and non-cashable (sticky) bonuses?

When a bonus is cashable, it simply means that you can cash out the bonus value along with the deposit plus winnings once wagering requirements are met. A sticky bonus, aka non-cashable, may not be withdrawn. The amount of the bonus will be removed from your real money balance once the rollover has been met or when once a withdrawal is requested.

For example, let’s say you receive a 100% deposit match up to $100 on a $100 deposit.

  • Cashable: $200 to play with and if the bonus is cashable, you can withdraw $200 the bonus + deposit + winnings once wagering requirements are met.
  • Non-cashable: If the offer is sticky, the $100 match will be removed from your balance allowing you to cashout deposit + winnings.
