Anyone aged 18 or above who signs up to a fully licensed and regulated online bingo website for the very first time can find the experience thrilling but also overwhelming with not knowing what to expect.

Here is a beginner’s guide that covers just about everything a new online bingo player will most likely encounter from the moment they first visit a bingo site to the sign-up process, making the first deposit, playing games, and more.

What are bingo websites?

An online bingo site, which some people also refer to as an online bingo casino, is a legally permitted real money gambling site where anyone of legal age in their country can play a range of computer-generated 75-ball and 90-ball bingo games.

Most sites today also tend to have thousands of computer-generated and live dealer online slot machines, blackjack, craps, baccarat, craps, crash games, slingo, scratchcards, and other games.

The best online bingo software today is brought to you by Relax Gaming.

Some of the other market-leading providers that developed online bingo, live dealer games, and slots are companies like Evolution Gaming, Netent, Blueprint Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Games Global, Red Tiger Gaming, Playtech, and ELK Studios, to name a few.

These sites are free to join. You can sign up in under a minute from any modern Wi-Fi/internet-connected despot computer or mobile device by filling out the simple online application form, and then you can usually top up your account from as little as £10 or £10 using a range of popular UK online payment methods.

Most bingo games are playable from as little as £0.01 up to £1.50 per card/ticket, and in each game that you decide to play, just like in real life, you can purchase multiple tickets or just one ticket.

What to expect when joining a bingo site for the first time

Although each site is different, the basic services, products, and features are essentially the same on most sites. Here is a quick look at some of the most common things you can expect when you join your very first online bingo website:

  • Sign-up process – must be completed to open an account and play online bingo
  • Cashier/banking section – head here when logged into your account so you can deposit. Trusted sites tend to accept Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, bank transfers and Paysafecard for deposits and/or withdrawals
  • Bonuses and promotions – when making your first deposit, you can often claim a guaranteed new player welcome bonus. Always read the Ts and Cs when claiming bonuses to ensure you get the most out of them
  • Responsible gambling – when logging in for the first time, go to the safer gambling (also known as responsible gambling) tools section to set things like win/loss limits, spending caps, session time reminders, and deposit limits
  • Games – in the main game lobby, you can generally find a healthy selection of online bingo games and other popular casino games. Simply click or tap on a game for it to load, and then start playing
  • Player support – should you have a question regarding your account or the site or encounter a technical issue, you can easily contact the toll-free player support. Most sites have telephone, email, and live chat support

Today’s best sites have excellent security, SSL (128-bit or higher) encryption, positive reviews on today’s best iGaming review sites, and quick access to the games either instantly in your web browser or from within a secure iOS/Android mobile app.

Final thoughts

Online bingo sites today are really easy to navigate and use, and they have games from several market-leading software providers, which is why they are so popular.

Sites like this are convenient because you don’t have to go down to the local bingo hall to play your favourite game; they are open 24/7. Now that you know roughly what to expect from a trusted bingo site, it should put your mind at ease and make it seem less overwhelming.
