Why it’s Safer to Play on UK Bingo Sites in 2018
There are now hundreds of bingo sites live with UK Gambling Commission licenses. If a bingo site has a Gambling Commission logo, click on it to be sure it redirects to the official UK Gambling Commission page and has the full licensing information on that particular site displayed. Then you can play bingo on that site with comfort of knowing your money is protected by law and that the business in question has to conform to a whole range of conditions introduced by the Gambling Commission.
Why Bingo Sites Ask For ID Before You Can Withdraw
Now that you know you are being protected by the UK government now, you can play safely in the knowledge that if you win big the site has to pay you out and has the means to. Because of their obligations to the Gambling Commission sites will also ask you for ID to prove who you are. One of the main reasons for this is to prevent fraud and money laundering. It might seem like they are putting up obstacles up to you being able to withdraw your money, but actually they are just complying with tight player protection regulations and other legal obligations. The simple solution to this is to keep a copy of all the documents they normally ask for on your hard drive. Then it’s a two minute job to upload or email it to them. Once they have your ID, they are obligated to pay you out quickly. Almost all of the big brands will pay you out very quickly, if you use an online payment system like Neteller, you can get your money within 24 hours.
There Are Only A Few Types of Bingo Site
It is common knowledge that there are hundreds of different bingo sites out there, with another five to ten launching every month, but are they all unique? The truth is each of these bingo sites uses software from a very few providers. Dragonfish and Virtue Fusion are the most popular, they dominate the bingo market. The advantage of playing at sites with their software is that players are used to the format and therefore know what to expect, but other benefits include the fact their technology is so slick, they have exceptionally impressive promotions, along with interesting game formats like Deal or No Deal Bingo and very good support and loyalty schemes. The negative of playing at these sites is that the bingo rooms are often extremely busy and while the prizes are big, the chances of winning in any of them are quite low.
Far behind Dragonfish and Virtue Fusion are a number of small software companies. These include Cozy Games, Microgaming, 15 Network and Gamesys. Gamesys is the biggest of these with most of their activity coming through their well-known brands Sun Bingo and Jackpot Joy. Because of these two brands Gamesys can offer a similar experience to the top tier software companies. Cozy Games and 15 Network are quite similar in that they are smaller networks with markedly inferior software. There is also a lot less customisation of the bingo sites on these networks so it can start to feel like you are not getting anything special from playing at any of them.
What Are The Most Popular Bingo Sites?
Gala Bingo is by far the biggest bingo site. Using Virtue Fusion software, they have a truly fantastic range of bingo and games. Plus they have same unique games like Coronation Street Bingo and are likely to keep producing interesting and exciting bingo variants. The next biggest are Tombola, Mecca Bingo, Sun Bingo, Foxy Bingo and Costa Bingo. All these sites have big unique player promotions and a seamless playing experience. Other bingo brands that have a big player base include Cheeky Bingo, Sky Bingo, Wink Bingo, Iceland Bingo, William Hill Bingo, Fabulous Bingo and Paddy Power Bingo. At any of these sites you will find very busy bingo rooms, attractive new player deposit offers and unique bingo promotions to keep existing players happy.
How Do Bingo Sites View Bingo Players?
Bingo is entertainment, but entertainment is still a business and it is their objective to maximise their earnings from bingo players. That is not to say you cannot win big on a bingo site! But the reality is the vast majority of players are going to lose money playing online bingo.
The greatest profit to be made from bingo players is on slots like Fluffy Favourites, Clover Rollover, Starburst and Rainbow Riches. If bingo players did not play enough on slot games, their business would not be as profitable, in many cases bingo actually subsidises slot activity. So bingo sites will do everything they can to try and persuade players to use these games. That’s why many sign up offers now include a slots bonus. Right from the outset they are trying to persuade you to enjoy these games.
The next battle is to retain players, but the problem is there are hundreds of bingo sites all offering fantastic sign up offers. Acquiring new customers is expensive, so if on average they are not retaining enough of their new customers, they will not claw back the original acquisition cost. It’s very likely that in the future, because of regulation and spiralling costs, there will be a period of consolidation in the industry and a slowdown in the launch of new bingo sites. At the moment the battle for your business is fierce and you can skip from one site to the next claiming bonus after bonus. Keep in mind that these bonuses come with heavy wagering requirements and all that glitters is not gold! To enjoy bingo you simply have to spend within your means and stay enjoying it for the reasons you wanted to play in the first place: a bit of escapism with the opportunity to make new friends and a buzz from nearly winning and sometimes winning a big bingo game.
