Bingo sites are always looking to entice new players with fantastic deals. These welcome bonuses, or welcome offers, are a great way to spend a bit longer on a site without it breaking the bank.
The best online bingo offers have historically always been reserved for new players, but times they are a changin’ and although there are some top bingo offers still around for newbies, returning players are also becoming more valued too.
Here are a selection of the biggest and best bingo offers we have found for you this month.
The latest deals for Wednesday 20th June 2018
100% bingo bonus and 25 spins on first deposit *
This site had a makeover in late 2015, and it certainly needed dragging into the 21st century. Then in August 2016 there was another major change when the bingo platform transferred to Dragonfish from IGT (formerly GTech). This meant an increase in choice and a much better welcome offer for new players.
Bid Bingo offer an extensive range of slots, casino games, arcade games and scratchcards. There’s also a rather large selection of progressive slots on offer too. Jackpot titles featured include the popular Fluffy Favourites game and this is joined by many more.
At Bid Bingo you get to play 90 ball and 75 ball bingo, but there is an excellent range of rooms. From August 2017 you will also be able to enjoy a special exclusive room as you become a VIP player.
120 extra bingo tickets on your first deposit ** Welcome Offer: 18+ new players only. Minimum deposit £10. Maximum amount of tickets is fixed at 120. Tickets will be awarded to 4 specified rooms only, 30 tickets per room. Max 6 tickets per game. Winnings in real cash. Withdrawal policy applies. Full T&Cs apply. Full Terms & Conditions
Bringo Bingo opened in July 2017 and is a site you will not miss if you stumble across it. There is a very distinctive theme of quiz shows and the host, Bobby Bingo, is a cross breed of every male game show host you have ever seen. He has immaculately groomed grey hair, in a quiff, a perma-tan, gleaming white teeth and gold lamé jacket. There is also a beautiful female co-host.
What makes this site even more fun is that as you explore the bingo rooms you will see a fun theme develop of them being named with mash-ups of catchphrases from the most famous quiz shows you will know and love. See below for examples.
This site operates on Dragonfish software, but is part of a smaller network of sites meaning more chances to win. They do offer some excellent prizes, but more around the evenings. The games on offer in the daytime could do with some better prize money - or more people to improve the pots of course.
The welcome offer changed in June 2018 to being bingo ticket based, which is a growing trend. This means that any winnings from those tickets can be paid in cash and so there are no wagering requirements attached.... Read more

Sing Bingo opened in May 2010 and was one of the early sites from the team at Mandalay (now owned by Jackpotjoy plc). It offered something new and refreshing on the reliable Dragonfish platform as it brought with it a very generous welcome package for the time.
It is very distinctive in its themeing around the music industry and when put to the vote the players chose to name the rock star mascot Bingo Starr! You won't see him before you log in, however, due to changes in regulations in 2017 which meant any images that might be considered appealing to children had to be removed before accessing the site properly.
Sing Bingo has never wavered in its aim to provide value for money. It has always maintained a generous welcome offer and its commitment to free bingo.
There are lots of guaranteed jackpots, with starting prices of just 1p, lots of chat tourneys and other great value bingo games.
The length of time to wait for a withdrawal is the only small disadvantage.... Read more

Kingdom of Bingo
120 extra bingo tickets on your first deposit ** Welcome Offer: 18+. New players only. Minimum deposit £10. Maximum amount of tickets is fixed at 120. Tickets will be awarded to 4 specified rooms only, 30 tickets per room. Max 6 tickets per game. Winnings in real cash. Withdrawal policy applies. Full T&Cs apply. Full Terms & Conditions
Kingdom of Bingo is another site brought to you by the owners of Costa Bingo. Opened in August 2016 the site is designed around a yellow theme favoured by the company, with even the sky a sandy gold colour instead of blue! The other characters like the king and queen, their knights and a jester and, of course, the main character 'Princess Penny', all disappeared at the end of 2017 due to new regulations regarding images on gambling sites that might appeal to children. All the hard work to make an appealing site was on no more use.
However, the colours and remaining design features represent the intended medieval theme well and makes the site look friendly and inviting. The site operates on the Dragonfish platform, but the lobby and room names are unique to Kingdom of Bingo, although the rooms themselves may be networked with other Mandalay brands.
There is a good selection of rooms including free bingo rooms and separate rooms for the bigger promotional games. The offers were updated in mid-2018 and became bingo ticket based, meaning that prizes could be paid in real cash and so no wagering requirements.... Read more
Real Deal Bingo
£70 bingo tickets and 10 bonus spins for £10 *
Real Deal Bingo opened in June 2017 and became the fourth site on the Dragonfish Real Bingo Network. Real Deal, Real Bingo Network - this is getting confusing! There was a TV programme called Real Deal that concerned itself with antiques, but there does not appear to be any affiliation with the programme. Instead of antiques we have a rather plain affair in brown and gold dots. The site looks more like a slots site than a bingo site, but there is a good selection of slots alongside the bingo rooms so that should not be a problem.
This site is from Intertain and is a departure from their own Ignite network of brands. No standard deposit bonuses here which Ignite are famous for, instead the route is bingo tickets and bonus spins when you deposit. Don't forget to use the code. All these brands have also reduced the minimum withdrawal amount to just £5, which is a huge step forward.
Deposit and Stake £10 get £40 in bonuses and 50 Free Spins ** New customers only. Min dep & stake £10 on Bingo Tickets to qualify. Promo code required: BINGO90. £30 Bingo Bonus (2x Wagering) & £10 Slots Bonus (15x Wagering). 14 Day Expiry. Bonus Balance is used prior to Cash Balance. 50 Free Spins on Rainbow Ryan credited in 24 hrs of qualification. Free Spins expiry after 7 days. Full T&Cs apply.
The emphasis here is placed on providing a pleasant, fun environment. Play chat games with the Chat Moderators and make new friends along the way. At this site you will find all the latest chat games, plus great promotions.
New look - Early in 2017 Betfred Bingo got a much needed makeover. The promotions are easier to find and the games are fully HTML5 responsive. The menu is much handier and quicker to access what you want and the games are really easy to find and move around.
There's a whole host of fantastic features in the brand new Bingo Lobby for desktop. The layout has been much improved and navigation is much simpler and straightforward - all geared towards making the Betfred Bingo experience bigger and better and a joy to use.
Late in 2017 there was a further transformation. Much of the heavy navy blue branding was toned back and the Betfred Bingo Show came to town. The design became based around the old style 60's and 70's over the top gameshows that were all big hair and fancy dresses and suits and glittery, sparkly sets. In short, they brought fun back to bingo.... Read more
Up to 500 Loyalty Points welcome offer-no wagering ** New players only. 18+. 100 Candy Club Points for every £10 of first deposit up to 500 Points. £10 min deposit and 2.5% fee (min 50p). 90 day expirty on Candy Club Points. Use code BINGO. Cash balance withdrawable at any time, fee £2.50. Candy Club points can be redeemed for bingo tickets or mini-game credits. Full T&Cs apply.
While at launch the site operated on its own unique software, in June 2015 bgo Bingo became the latest site to abandon its own platform and adopt the bingo and games set up of market leader Playtech (VF). The look of the site at home page level remained pretty much the same, but once inside it was a whole new ball game!
In July 2017 the site finally moved over to the Playtech HTML5 platform - among the last to do so knowing how popular the original software was with players. At the end of 2017 the site became one of the first to try and remove wagering requirements while still offering a form of welcome bonus and ongoing player incentives. Candy Points became the currency and although given out more rarely, spending with them incurs no wagering on any winnings.
Four exclusive bingo rooms add to the huge array of networked rooms, so existing players used to the exclusivity of bgo Bingo won't be disappointed.
There are lots of opportunities to win big in the many bingo rooms, on the bingo games and among the fantastic range of mini games. The site boasts a great bunch of chat hosts and lots of friendly players.... Read more
No deposit free bingo and 300% 1st deposit bonus *
Swanky Bingo opened in February 2016 and is on Cozy software on the Live Bingo Network.
The site really lives up to its name with it rich brown and gold design. The site is laid out really nicely and gives a really nice introduction to the Cozy Games platform. You can see the bingo rooms available before you even log in and the games and prizes available.
From the generous welcome offer to a range of great promotions taking place every day, week and month, Swanky Bingo has lots of reasons to have you as a regular player, although if you are familiar with the platform you will note that it is the same inside as the other sites on the same network.
Up to £50 welcome bonus for new players *
Crown Bingo launched way back in 2005 on Virtue Fusion bingo software. In March 2017 the site swapped to the newer Bede platform and so offered players a different selection of games and promotions.
The site prides itself on being very easy to play, safe and secure with a friendly and welcoming community. Add this to quick and reliable payouts and a good customer support team and you already have a great bingo experience lined up.
Navigation is simple, thanks to all of the useful tabs on display. Newbies won’t have problems finding what they’re looking for here. Now, the welcome page shows you the latest welcome offer and various games for you to play.
400% bingo bonus or 100% slots bonus *
Bingo Extra is part of the Daub network who are well known from the popular Kitty Bingo and Lucky Pants Bingo websites.
The design is quite retro in feel and this was confirmed by the TV advertising undertaken when the site launched which took the form in places of a fifties game show.
You will find an excellent range of bingo and slot games - many of which are exclusive Daub games and lots of great promotions.

New bingo offers & the latest promotions
What should you look for and what can you expect when joining an online bingo site for the first time? Do you want to try before you buy? Is a big first deposit bonus important to you. Is there a free gift? At WhichBingo we explore the ever changing world of UK bingo offers that welcome new players on board from a selection of the best available online.
Traditionally you can expect a generous first deposit bonus and maybe an extra feature like a bonus wheel or slots spins or free games. Bonuses are delivered in a number of different ways, like a matched top up amount from a promo code or voucher or simply based on a percentage of your first cash payment sum. Its important to consider that when you receive a welcome offer you are going to be subject to terms and conditions that differ from one bingo operator to another.
1st deposit bonus
100% cash match is usually the minimum you can expect, but the maximum has been known to reach 600%. While this is usually just bingo bonus there is a move towards sites adopting a 'mix and match' approach and offering part of the bonus for bingo and part for slots and games. The minimum deposit required to qualify for a welcome bonus varies between £5 and £10. The upper limit can reach £150, but at sites with a bigger offer can be capped at £10 max but if the offer is 500% that's still £60 to play - it's all relative.
What are bingo bonus codes?
Many bingo sites allocate their bonuses automatically. This could either be as soon as registration is complete and a first deposit made or when a certain spend on bingo games has been achieved.
However, what you need to watch out for are those sites that want you to use a bingo bonus code to qualify for your bonus. This is kind of an ‘opt-in’ mechanism. If you use the code the site knows you are aware of the bonus and are more likely to have checked out the terms.
The code will either be required at the time of registration or when making your first deposit. If not entered the advertised bonus will not be applied, so be sure to check out the offer carefully.
How to maximise your bonus
- Check with WhichBingo first before joining a site. We often secure an exclusive welcome offer that means you will get more for your first deposit than by going direct to the site.
- Make the most of your first deposit bonus by checking out the maximum limit to qualify and take advantage (but only if you can afford to do so). We would also add a word of caution to this though; if the wagering requirements are high this might not be the best approach, so look out for those sites with no wagering requirements.
- Play your first games in rooms with less players. They may have smaller prizes, but you will have more of a chance to win. So you get to play longer with your first deposit, plus bonus, plus winnings.
Additional top-up deals
From time to time, operators will offer additional deposit bonuses that continue for anything from 1 extra to 2 or 3 additional top-ups after your first payment. These bonuses may extend the wagering requirements as you balance the opportunity to earn extra cash vs the limitations on withdrawing until you reach the conditions set out as new player. If you want the newest sites to launch this year, check out our New Bingo Sites page.
Spin the wheel
These offers crop up quite often and add an extra component to the welcome offer. Most offer players the chance to win more bingo bonus from £5 to £2,500, with the average being around the £10 mark. In 2015 we saw the first sites move away from a standard flat bonus award to just a 'spin the wheel' offer that featured more chances to win free slot spins than bingo bonus.
These exclusive rooms are made available to new depositing players for anything from 24 hours to 7 days. Many offer free bingo or cheap tickets and usually a variety of games to get players used to what is available on the site. Prizes can be either cash or bingo bonus that can then be used in any room on the site in question.
Always be sure to read the Terms and Conditions relating to the welcome package as you join a site to avoid the potential for disappointment should you be lucky enough to win.
