Because I have to check out so many online bingo sites I spend my bingo funds at lots of different places and as such am never in much of a position to establish myself as a loyal player and move up the VIP status ladders. This is quite a shame as I understand that big spenders can enjoy some really big perks with many sites – but that is a theme I will revisit later.
What has prompted this train of thought is a recent encounter with the uber friendly Golden Hat Bingo.
I didn’t regard myself as a particularly regular player at this site, only having deposited a couple of times, but recently I was looking for ways to stretch those funds a bit further and remembered the Golden Hat Bingo No Lose Hour that takes place every Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm. This is great – it’s like getting a 100% deposit bonus. If you lose during the hour you get the full value of what you’ve spent across the whole site in that hour back at 8.01pm to play again!
That gave me the chance to play over a couple of more days and somehow I earned some free tickets into the Monday Night Madness session. This is a session from 7pm to 8pm on a Monday when Golden Hat Bingo players get to take part in their own little tournament worth £80 and lots of prizes are given away in chat games. Points are awarded for game wins and the three players with the most points at the end of the hour get £50, £20 and £10 in bingo bonus.
This week there were loads of extra treats as the site has been suffering from an influx of disgruntled players who have been rude and disruptive and the site was looking for a way to make things up to regular players. I’ve never been classed as a regular player before and I was quite pleased by the invite to be honest.
Golden Hat Bingo was offering a £50 Free Game, a £50 Live Prize Draw, the £80 Bingo Tournament with 4 exclusive free games and 2 x £10 One4All Shopping Vouchers – all in the space of just over an hour.
These were in the exclusive Golden Hat Bingo 75 ball bingo room too, Monties Mates and I love 75 ball bingo, so that was even better. I won a couple of coveralls and some line prizes and with just 9 points managed to take 2nd place in the tourney bagging the £20. Then in the prize draw I won one of the shopping vouchers.
People say loyalty is overrated, but I don’t agree. Little touches like this are just what is needed to ensure that players feel welcome and valued and long may it continue, whether at Golden Hat Bingo or any number of the hundreds of bingo sites out there. It is nice to have your custom valued and at last the online bingo world seems to be getting the message.
If I’m at a loose end for somewhere to play in future, there is a good chance Golden Hat Bingo will top the list if I fancy playing Virtue Fusion.
