Wagering requirements are often an annoyance if you’re a new player, particularly if you win with any welcome bonus funds and then find you cannot withdraw until you’ve played through a set amount of money.
Thankfully, many bingo operators are now launching sites with no wagering requirements attached to make things simpler and fairer for players.
Here you will find a list of approved bingo sites with no wagering new player offers.
More new sites from operator TAU just keep coming. This one opened in February 2018 and what we want to know is why a site with a super name like this hasn’t materialised sooner. There was scope for some nice graphics, and while we always expected them them to be ‘real person’ based and not cartoons, we weren’t expecting the partial ‘animé’ images of all the people having the huge eyes. They are certainly memorable, if not a little scary!
Bingo Besties is operating on the Dragonfish Real Bingo Network, as is the favoured option of the operator.
Many of the Dragonfish games and promotions changed as 2018 dawned so it is interesting to see what makes it to each new site as it opens.
It did not take long for operators to get a grasp of the potential of the Real Bingo Network to create a viable alternative to the Dragonfish standard network and remove the issues surrounding wagering. This is a site with no wagering requirements at all because of the way the welcome bonus is offered.
Queen Bee Bingo is the fifth bingo site to open on the new network and although you will be using Dragonfish software not all the games are universally networked, although some of the game do run on the main DF network but under different names.
The site opened in July 2017 and is quite plain in design compared to sister sites from the same operator like Zinger and Hunky Bingo.
Winner of Best Online Bingo site for 2017, Heart Bingo has become one of the UK’s coolest Bingo brands. With great games and promotions, an amazing Chat community and a super Mobile App, they are rapidly becoming the feel-good destination for Bingo.
Heart Bingo prides itself on its community. It is a place not just for gaming, but for chatting, making friends and generally having a good time. This is what makes their Bingo and Slots offering better than the rest. Their Chat rooms are full of players who want to wish each other well and share their winning moments.
Tombola Bingo is one of the UK’s biggest and most popular bingo sites, with over 14 different styles of gamesover numerous rooms and all featuring the presence of a vast army of chat moderators working hard to ensure players are happy and informed, so as well as their exclusive games and big jackpots it’s also one of the most friendly sites around.
The stakes are not high and are within everyone’s reach – to max any game the most you would have to spend is just £2. Up to £500 can be deposited at the site in any week that runs from Monday to Sunday and in fact the site recommends a top limit of £250 per week.
There is much to like about playing at Jackpotjoy, but the best things without doubt are the variety of unique games, the great promotions and the low withdrawal and wagering requirements compared to other sites. You will also find the friendliest bunch of UK based chat hosts you would ever hope to meet.
As of March 2018 the site has adopted a ‘no wagering’ policy with its free bingo tickets and free spins offer that is triggered if you opt in and spend just £10 as a new player.
It is a brand you are likely to be very familiar with thanks to its prolific TV advertising.
Blighty Bingo is among the first of the sites trying to do things a bit differently pending the legislation changes due during 2017. Their is no general bingo or games bonus, but you do get tickets worth £30 to a big money guaranteed jackpot game and some slot spins on Fluffy Favourites to start things off. Winnings from these bonus offers are paid to your cash balance. NO WAGERING REQUIREMENT.
This is a site on Dragonfish software and sitting on their new Real Bingo Network launched in January 2017. It looks like nothing you will have seen from Dragonfish to that point.
You need to re-register to continue to play!
Zinger Bingo has moved from the Dragonfish Network to the new Dragonfish Real Bingo Network in June 2017. Some things are the same, but with different names, but the fundamental difference is that sites on this network offer specific bonus deals that have no wagering attached ever!
This means that even if you already had an account at Zinger Bingo prior to 13th June you will have to re-register with the site to continue to play there. Just complete the registration form as if you were joining for the first time.
This is a site with a theme that is from the time before computers were even mainstream. Retro is the word and we ‘rewind’ to the 80’s and the days of big hair and exercise classes on the TV at breakfast time. at least after you become a member and log in.
Fun would also appear to be a big part of what went in to deciding how this site would look. Older readers may remember ‘Mad Lizzie’, also known as Lizzie Webb who was the TV:AM exercise guru. She was very energetic and wanted us all to get fit – maybe this will remind us to move between bingo games!
PocketWin is UK operated and owned by Intouch Games Ltd., the same stable as the ever popular mFortune.
This is a download only slots and bingo site, but you can expect a trouble free and enjoyable experience. Play an exclusive range of bingo and slots games that you will not find anywhere else either on mobile, desktop or tablet. All the games are developed in-house by skilled and knowledgeable designers. Bingo is the newest addition to the site having been integrated in August 2016.
The site was primarily designed with the mobile user in mind and all the games are optimised for ‘extra-fast mobile downloads, super-smooth mobile gameplay and ultra-easy user experiences’.
The Real Bingo Network with its no wagering policy is really starting to take off. Opened in April 2018 YAY Bingo opted for this Dragonfish derivative and has really managed to make itself stand out. The site is from TAU gaming and they were among the first to really step up the levels in the original bingo bonuses, so no doubt they will be looking for inventive ways to reward players without having to impose onerous wagering requirements.
There is bold use of colour, with bright pink, vivid yellow and pale blue in evidence, with real person images of both genders, a mix of ages and of couples and singles – everyone welcome at YAY Bingo. The standard offer stays static when you land on the homepage, but the top sliders provide a contrast and really emphasize that no wagering, all cash play, message.
Dabber Bingo opened in November 2016 and is from the team at TAU Gaming, which means there is a very generous welcome bonus waiting for all new players. The site claims no gimmicks, just the destination to provide you with ‘bingo bliss’.
You will find daily free games, fair and flexible rewards and a huge choice of slots and instant games. It’s a nice looking site, with everything laid out in nice, neat lines imparting the information you may need.
The site has a couple of exclusive rooms to take advantage of and it’s worth keeping an eye open for exclusive member offers even though the site is part of the bigger Dragonfish Network.
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.
mFortune first launched in 2007 to provide high-quality casino games for mobile and tablet devices, among the first to specialise in the mobile product over desktop. Since then it has evolved and offers high quality game play on both formats.
The site has grown is scale and offers a good range of casino games, unique slot games and a unique bingo format, all developed in-house.
This is the flagship brand of InTouch Games and although it started out with just Roulette, Fruit Machines, Black Jack and Hi-Lo Poker, there are now more than 30 casino games to choose from and the plan is to release a brand new game each month.
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.
Sticks the Snowman and his little bingo ball shaped penguin friend are the mascots of this fun site, once you join and go inside of course. A simple selection of 90 ball and 75 ball games and an excellent selection of slots makes this an ideal place to pass a few hours.
Frozen Bingo was among the first batch of sites to adopt the new style Dragonfish platform. The site is from the team at Ignite and so you are safe in the knowledge that any technological advances will be passed on quickly to enhance the quality of your games.
The downside of the site is the elongated processing time for withdrawals for those lucky enough to secure a win, although 2018 saw major changes to amounts and limits, so all moving in the right direction…. Read more

Wagering requirements are terms and conditions, usually imposed by bingo sites on players who accept a sign-up offer that awards an amount of bonus funds. Wagering is usually shown as a multiple figure, such as X4, which means you must spend four times your bonus received before you can withdraw any winnings.
Some even have restrictions on what bingo rooms or games contribute towards the wagering amount, e.g. money spent in bingo may contribute 100% to wagering, but only 50% on slot games or not at all on casino games. It really does differ from site to site.
Wagering requirements were originally a result of money laundering laws, enforced so that a money launderer couldn’t simply deposit money into a bingo site and then immediately withdraw it again. However, when you see some of the larger wagering requirements it can be looked upon as more of a way of discouraging players from withdrawing any winnings at all.
This is all part of the reasons why sites such as those listed here are now offering a completely no wagering experience.
You can on some sites simply refuse the sign up bonus to avoid any wagering requirements, but you would still have to play through your deposit once before withdrawals are possible to comply with money laundering regulations.
Many of the bingo sites with no wagering requirements do limit you to bingo tickets in specific games, rather than allowing you to choose your own games. However, there are more and more sites that are now also including some slot spins with no wagering requirements either. If you do join a site with slot spins as part of the offer it will often be on designated games, but they would tend to be the more popular games like Starburst or Fluffy Favourites.
The beauty of no wagering bingo is that it means exactly what it says. Should you be lucky enough to win, you will be paid in cash, not bonus funds, to your cash balance and be able to withdraw subject to the minimum withdrawal levels at the site you are playing at.
Some of the no wagering slot offers may be subject to a maximum win level that is a little on the low side, but you still have the fun of the spins and can then move on to play at the site as normal.
