Bonuses and Promos
Next up, we’re going in depth with each of the types of bonus that we offer here.
Welcome Bonuses/Deposit Bonuses
When you join a new site, you’ve probably done your research on what you’ll get for doing so. Welcome bonuses are your introduction to a site, as they serve as an incentive to join in and a reward for doing so.
On our bingo site, we reward players a bit differently as we let you have a spin on our prize wheel. With a £10 deposit, you’ll get the chance to win up to 500 free spins on a selection of slots or even win Amazon vouchers. There are wagering requirements applied to your winnings and free spins can expire.
Top-Up Bonuses/Redeposit Bonuses
Here at LuckyTouch Bingo, we want to give both new and existing players great bingo deposit bonuses. That’s why we run special redeposit bonuses for our returning players.
For example, once you complete enough barometer tasks, we’ll let you have another go on the prize wheel! For this loyalty scheme, you must be an active member and wagering requirements will be applicable to anything you win.
As part of our welcome and redeposit offer, we offer you the chance to win from 5 to 500 free spins. This gives you free games on a single slot, which will be determined by the prize wheel. These can include Pets, Fire vs. Ice and Black Widow Slots.
Winnings on free spins are capped, each spin is played with a set wager that can’t be changed by the player. They also have to be used up and anything that you win from them will be credited as a bonus.
There’s a free bingo session every day here, lasting 2 hour with bonus prize jackpots. It’s only open to roomies that have funded their account within the last week, so top up to make sure you can play. All money won in these games are bonus funds and thus are subject to wagering requirements.
We love giving our roomies extra chances to win so we regularly run special promotional games. These include our Fortune Fountain, Balance Booster and All or Nothing jackpot games. They’re great fun to play in and you have chances to win every week!
We know that our players love freebies, so we post information and bonus codes on our Facebook page, give it a like if you don’t want to miss out. There are T&Cs concerning these, like the amount you have to deposit and the timeframe you have to do so in.
How Do You Choose Which Game To Play On?
Now that you’re all clued up on how to get bonuses, it’s time to look at how to play bingo UK and what varieties there are.
Types of Games
There are two main types of bingo games available to play here, 75 and 90 ball bingo. 75 ball bingo or pattern bingo gives you a grid of 25 numbers with which you have to dab off the pattern displayed. You win when you get a blackout or complete the pattern on the screen.
Below you’ll see an example of a 75 ball bingo card and the pyramid pattern:
If you want to play 90 ball bingo instead, then the game and its cards are slightly different. They come in a rectangular shape in this game, with the numbers separated into three lines. They each contain five numbers and your aim is to dab off every single one. There are usually prizes for a full house (all numbers), one line of numbers completed and two lines completed.
Here’s what these cards look like on our site:
There are also slot and casino games available to play here, which can give you an extra chance to win. These can be played from your bingo game, so you can even play two games at once and double up your chances to win, if you like.
Ticket Prices Vs Chances of Winning
It can be tempting to pop into a room with a low ticket price but if you’re in there because it’s cheap then other players will be too. This means there are more players in the room and you have less chance of winning. For this reason, playing in a 5p bingo room might give you a higher likelihood of winning than a 1p bingo room.
Weekends Vs Weekdays Vs Specials
Weekends and special games are always the most popular ones on a bingo site. Everyone wants to spend their weekend playing bingo, even more so if there’s a big jackpot involved. This means that these games are super busy and some even sell out before the game begins.
Many players swear by playing at quieter times, like late at night or on weekdays. It’s all about the statistics when you take these into account, as less players means a higher chance of you winning.
How to Buy a Bingo Ticket
After you’ve picked the room you want to play in, it’s easy to buy as many bingo tickets as you would like. Do this with the ticket selection at the top of the screen, which enables you to buy 1 to 99 cards in a click. If you want to play with the same in the next round then you can also use the autobuy function of the room.
How To Play Responsibly
At LuckyTouch Bingo, we want to make sure that our players are having fun responsibly. Here are couple of tips for newbies who want to play responsibly:
- Make sure you’re not maxing out on every game, as this can be a sign that you’re spending too much. Instead, make sure you’re playing with a range of card numbers and prices.
- If you’re not feeling like you’re having fun anymore, perhaps if you’re feeling frustrated or annoyed, then it might be time to take a break. Go a few days without any bingo and it might get more fun again.
Now that you have all the hints and tips that you need, it’s time to get out there and play some games. You’ll experience the games for yourself and find out everything else about them.
