Over the last year, we have seen multiple changes in how bonuses for new players are given. First, we’ve seen no deposit bonus required offers dropped at most bingo brands, and more recently, a reduction of the number of cash match bonuses available.
Jackpot Joy Bingo Brands Amend Bonuses
Last week we saw bonus changes across the Ignite & Jackpot Joy brands that saw ten sites from this company drop their cash match deals entirely.
Some of the sites in question had already made changes by dropping the no-deposit required bonuses earlier in the year and only offering percentage cash matches on initial transactions. Now even the latter has been removed.
Bingo Tickets Replace Cash Match Offers For Ignite
The bingo sites that have seen the changes are:
- Farmyard and Kingdom – bonuses changed on 15th June
- Rewind and Season – bonuses changed on 18th June
- Bringo and Sparkly – bonuses changed on 19th June
- Frozen and Angry – bonuses changed on 20th June
- Giant and Dino – bonuses changed on 21st June
The above offers 120 bingo tickets with the first deposit of £10. Bingo tickets get awarded across four different rooms, 30 allocated to each room, and all bingo tickets expire after seven days if not used. As a result, only six bingo tickets get used in any game.
The rooms and what they offer are as follows:
Ticket To Ride
75-ball games with 1TG/2TG – £10 prize pot
- 2TG share £2
- 1TG share £3
- Full House for £5
Just the Ticket
75-ball games – £10 prize pot
- Full House for £10
90-ball games – £10 prize pot
- One line for £2
- Two lines for £3
- Full House for £5
Choo Choo Ticket
5-line bingo games – £10 prize pot
- £2 per line
Reload Bonuses From Ignite
There are just two reload bonuses now offered at the sites listed above, and these get presented on transactions of £10 or more. No code is required to receive the rewards, and they are:
- 2nd Deposit – 60 tickets for the Choo Choo Ticket games.
- 3rd Deposit – 30 tickets for the Golden Ticket games.
Please note that any winnings derived from the tickets awarded with deposits do not carry wagering requirements, so you are eligible to withdraw if you have the minimum withdrawal amount of £5 in your account.
A Vision of the Future for Bingo Bonuses
These bingo bonuses have changed due to the sites moving to the Real Bingo Network. This new Real Bingo Network is growing fast and catering to bingo site operators & players by offering free spins.
We say catering to operators has a few massive tax hikes to swallow, and the additional bonus costs would be a disaster to most.
The new Real Bingo Network boasts free spins, which alleviate this cost and offer players something for their entertainment.
