How to Claim a Welcome Bonus when Registering at a New Bingo Site

If you have recently entered the diverse and profitable world of online bingo, you will most likely have noticed the aggressive competition that exists between independent brands. This manifests itself in many ways, but most prominently in the form of generous deposit matches and welcome bonuses which are awarded to all new players. While there are similar incentives available for existing players too, the most lucrative deals are only accessible to new registrants at brand new bingo sites.

How to claim your Welcome Bonus


Although the nature of your welcome bonus may vary (along the precise methods for claiming your reward), there is a standardised way in which you can become eligible for a financial incentive. This starts by registering for an account with your chosen provider, entering your name, email address and additional details to verify your status as a human. If the details are entered accurately, you should then receive and email confirming your registration and asking you to click on a link for validation.

This will take you back to the website, where you should be automatically logged in and ready to claim your bonus. If it was presented in the form of an unconditional incentive that translates into completely free gameplay, you will simply need to redeem this by clicking a single button and opting in to credit your account. In contrast, offers that take the form of percentage based deposit matches require you to transfer funds into your account before you can claim the additional credit.

Using Bonus Capital and Making the most of Free Gameplay


Once you have listed the details of your credit card (or an alternative payment source such as an e-wallet or PayPal account), you will be able to transfer funds directly into your account. So long as you deposit an amount that sits between the minimum and maximum thresholds stipulated in terms of the welcome offer and remember to opt in, your account should instantly be updated and credited with the additional capital. You will then be able to play, so all that is left is for you to make the most of this free gameplay and utilise it in a way that optimises your activity.
