Online Bingo sites have a different set of rules and limits than casinos, therefore it is like trying to compare apples to oranges. Today, however, there is a fine line between bingo and casino sites. Back in the early days, there was strictly one software with a small section dedicated to slots and if lucky table games. Fast forward to the present and if it weren't for the list of bingo options it's difficult to differentiate the two. That is not a grievance instead a vast improvement and beneficial advantage of gambling options available at one location. Regrettably, every rose has its thorns and as we transcend through time some facets have slipped through the bingo cracks!
A Low Blow to Withdrawal Limits
For many bingo portals the withdrawal terms can be horrendous but before getting into the meat and potatoes of it all it is important to be fair. A player cannot expect to have the same cash-out rules as their casino cousins. The reason is they have a much higher profit margin and have the funds for larger single payouts. Revenue received by playing slots and tables produce wagers that can't compare to penny tickets to bingo games lasting 3 minutes or so. Despite that, the nonsensical rules aren't justified for lousy payouts.

Don't Get Caught in a Fool's Paradise
It is interesting to do a comparison of leading software providers and see the vast differences. In some cases, information, can be confusing or lack the most important factors like max limits. Misleading information that has a max daily limit set yet the monthly max limit allowed is unreasonably low, case example $1,000 daily - $3,000 max monthly. That means you aren't privileged $1,000 PER day more like 3 PER month to add up to their monthly terms. This leaves a player scratching their head because mathematically it simply doesn't add up! Also, the shoddy low daily cash-out limits like $300 when you win say, $900 will take three stinking weeks to get your money - really!
It can't be stressed enough the significance to reading terms and conditions of every site where a deposit is made. And if information is missing in the terms (as you can see above examples) bang on supports door and ASK! If not, a player is setting themselves up for false expectations.
Yes I get it, bingo games may not bring the same type of huge revenue as casinos thus payouts are more stringent, but hey what about the sites with integrated software? I can't help but think they are making a pretty buck off the slots department - no?

Great read! When it's put all together like this, it's really difficult to believe how strict and tight the rules are, and there's no clear or satisfying excuse for that, at least in my opinion; especially since most bingo sites offer slots nowadays. I think they earn quite enough to loosen up those terms. Perhaps there's another side to the story, and I'm talking strictly as a player.Show more

excellent read Ava. Good to know about some of these hidden terms and things that do not add up.

When you compare T & C for the most part they are similar across the board which really stringent.
