How to unlock free bonuses on bingo sites?

We all enjoy getting a freebie but certain bingo sites want you to deposit before you get a bonus. This can prevent you from having a good time but luckily we know the best ways for you to get a bonus without depositing.

Refer a Friend

If you’re a regular player on a bingo site, then you’re probably a bingo nut in real life too. If you have lots of friends interested in the game too then, you can refer them online. On certain sites, this will send them a link to sign up and on others they’ll need to quote your alias when they do.

Then, when they’ve signed up and deposited, you’ll get a gift from the site for inviting them along. This could have you playing free bingo, shopping with a voucher or even just give you some cash in your account. If you have lots of friends that enjoy bingo, then you could get a substantial amount of gifts for referring them.

Social Media

Those who have Facebook and Twitter can join in with competitions from their favourite bingo brands. These quite often give out bingo bonuses, free spins or even real prizes if you’re lucky. They focus on everything from trivia to TV shows and are a bit like chat games in the bingo lobby. Bonuses and free spins can be used to win more funds, though wagering requirements will need to be reached before you can withdraw them.

If you have a look in the promotions area of your favourite sites, then you might also see freebies for liking or following them on social media. They might give you some loyalty points or bonus spins, and all you’ll have to do is hit ‘like’. This is an easy way to gain a gift, as they can be credited in no time at all.

No Deposit Bonuses

Signing up for a site can also come with a free bonus for you when you complete the registration process. They might also allow you access to free bingo games for a set period of time where you can earn your bonus funds. Newbie rooms are standard on sites but at most you may need to deposit to get to them.

Loyalty Points

Some bingo sites have loyalty bonuses for their players, and these can accumulate into a lot of free offers. As well as bingo bonuses you may be able to use these for free tickets or even convert them into cash on certain sites. Although you will have to spend on bingo to get these, they’re free in that you’d probably be doing that anyway.


Now and again, bingo sites will offer their players the chance to take part in free giveaways. For these, you may have to opt in and have been a funded player on their site at one point. Some of these won’t require you to make a deposit to enter, so if you have an account, already you could take part.
