You will probably earn bingo bonus points when you play at the internet bingo sites. They are often known by different names depending on the bingo site you choose to play. Irrespective of what they are known as they all fundamentally work on the same principle. They are known as bingo points, bonus bucks, chat points, loyalty points, etc.
Bingo bonus points can be redeemed into bingo money with which you can buy cards, usually at a rate of 1,000 points per £1 of bingo. These bingo bonus points are an excellent way of increasing your bingo balance. So how do you get them to increase your bingo balance?
There are several ways of earning bingo bonus points. A few sites give you free cash on signing up which will be mostly bonus money, it is the same as loyalty points as you can buy bingo cards with it but not withdraw it as cash.
When you start playing for real money you will earn bonus points as you buy cards. You can even save them up and can transfer them back into cash to purchase bingo cards when the funds are low.
Playing in chat is another great way to earn bingo loyalty points. You can participate in bingo chat games and earn loyalty points which can be transferred back into bingo money to continue playing.
And then of course there are the bonus point promotions too, which you can get on joining in a bingo promotion and on been rewarded with bonus points if you win. There are several types of promotions which pay loyalty points, namely, Team Bingo and weekly promotions where anyone who gets bingo on a certain number or pattern shares a pool of bonus points.
Most of the sites bonus points can only be transferred back into bingo money, yet some internet bingo sites give away a little more back. If you play at Virgin Bingo you will earn something called V Points, these points can be used to play bingo or can be saved up and transferred into credits to buy a whole host of treats from the Virgin Bingo loyalty point scheme.
In 90% of cases the bonus points cannot be redeemed into cash and cannot be withdrawn. While several internet sites do not allow you to use them to play mini games and slots hence, it is essential to check the conditions of the site when signing up.
Bonus points are an excellent way of accelerating your balance a little and if you are lucky you may even get a good win with them and find yourself ‘back in the game’.
