Full Bonus Terms and Conditions
If you are new to Gone Bingo, you can hop into the Newbie Bingo Room where free bingo games run round the clock each day of the week. There are only but a few requirements you need to meet to get there and the first one is signing up with an account on the website.
Secondly, Since Gone Bingo is committed to protecting its customers and preventing any forms of frauds, it requires new registrants to undergo a brief procedure in order to validate the cards they intend to use when topping their bingo balance.
Those who skip on this procedure will not be allowed to access the free Newbie Bingo Room. For the purpose, you visit the cashier, select your card brand from the drop-down menu, enter the valid card number, and the date of expiry. Then you click the “Validate” button and you are done – you can now start playing the newbie games for free.
Obviously, this is an option only for new players who intend to deposit via credit or debit cards. Those who wish to use e-wallets like Neteller, PayPal, or Skrill will not be able to validate their e-wallet accounts and gain access to the free bingo room, or at least not without making a deposit first.
Validating your card will open the virtual doors of the Newbie Bingo Room for the first 7 days counting from the day you sign up. The free room remains open at all times of night and day so you can join other new roomies for some free bingo whenever you feel like it.
The games that run from 1 am to 7 am offer prizes of £1 and those that run from 7 am onwards award prizes of £2. There is no limit to the games you can join. However, the number of tickets you can claim per game is restricted to 12 only. Newbies can generate up to £3,000 from the free bingo games during the seven days of free play.
It should be noted that the sums you win will be first credited to your account in the form of bingo bonus funds. You can keep track of how much you have collected by checking your bingo bonus balance from the drop-down menu, located in the website’s header. Newbies should also bear in mind that they will not be able to withdraw the bonus funds themselves. The bonus monies can be used only for free bingo play.
However, you can cash out the winnings you generate when playing with the bonus monies. To get there, though, you must comply with two conditions. The first one is to process a deposit into your new Gone Bingo account. The cashier accepts deposits of as little as £10 via Visa and Mastercard.
The second condition requires you to clear the wagering requirements, associated with this bonus. In this case, wagering of 4x applies. Once you make a deposit, the operator would match it at 100% by transferring the respective amount from your bonus balance to your real-money balance.
Just to provide you with an example, imagine you have won £80 during free play and this amount is credited to your bonus balance. When you make a deposit of say £20, the same amount will be carried forward as real money into your cash balance. In this case, you will have a total of £40 into your real-money balance, £20 from your actual deposit and the extra £20 transferred from your bonus funds balance. To cash out, you have to wager this amount 4x on bingo games. Here it is essential to specify that the winnings you can cash out from your free play are capped at £20.
Your free access to the Newbies Bingo Room ends sevens days after you have registered your account and validated your credit or debit card. You can take part in the free play only once after signing up.
The promotion is available only once per household IP, so if a room mate or relative of yours living in the same house registers at Gone Bingo from the same IP address, they will be declined access to the free room. The bonus funds you are credited with will remain in your bonus balance for a period of 30 days only so be sure to deposit within this timeframe so they can be transferred to your actual cash balance.
Last but definitely not least, do not bother registering at all if you are younger than 18 years old. Abetting underage gambling is considered a criminal offence in the UK which is why Gone Bingo does not allow it on its website. The free-play promotion is also not valid for players, domiciled in restricted countries. That being said, the list of countries Gone Bingo accepts play from is rather short and includes only about a dozen jurisdictions like the UK, Switzerland, Canada, Finland, Sweden, and the British Crown dependencies of Jersey, the Isle of Man and Guernsey, among several other locations.
