BGO is an online betting brand that has captured the interest of players with its catchy promotional campaigns that feature celebrities like heiress Paris Hilton and the actor Verne Troyer. It has expanded its operations to feature a virtual casino, a live-dealer option, and a bingo platform where you can choose from a variety of 75-ball and 90-ball games that run on software by Virtue Fusion, a subsidiary of the well-known supplier Playtech.
The bingo operator was one of the first ones to ditch wagering requirements while still offering a welcome bonus, worthy of the attention of bingo mavens. The said bonus is based on the idea of newcomers receiving comp points they can redeem for free bingo tickets. Presently, BGO Bingo offers newcomers up to 500 Candy Club Points upon depositing for the first time into their new accounts.
Bonus Terms and Conditions
BGO extends a warm welcome to all newly registered bingo players with an exciting welcome bonus that entitles them to up to 500 Candy Club Points. New members of the bingo platform can become eligible by registering real-money accounts and depositing a minimum of £10.
The promotional code BINGO must be entered in the specified field of the registration form to qualify for the offer. The bonus is awarded in increments as each £10 of your first deposit is equal to 100 points. Consequently, the maximum you must deposit to obtain all 500 points amounts to £50. To use an example, you get 300 points in exchange for a deposit of £30. Note that deposits exceeding the amount of £50 will not qualify you for a higher number of points.
Eligible registrants will be credited with their free Candy Club Points within 24 hours of applying for the welcome bonus. The free points can be used for the purchase of free tickets or for playing the slots in the bingo lobby.
The generosity of BGO extends even further, though, as the welcome package grants them free 7-day access to the Beginner’s Luck room which is reserved exclusively for bingo newbies. Each newcomer must also register a chat name. The access to this room entitles newbies to free bingo tickets for various 90-ball games that start at specific hours of the day, namely 12:00 pm, 3:00 pm, 6:00 pm, and 9:00 pm.
And the coolest thing of all is that players get to keep whatever they have won with their free tickets. The prize pool for each of the free games in the Beginner’s Luck room amounts to £3. The prizes for each free game are distributed as follows – £1.50 for a full house, £0.90 for two lines, and £0.60 for one line. But it does not end there. Eligible players can also try and win a larger prize by joining one of the progressive games BGO Bingo hosts on a regular basis.
As with all promotional incentives, players must adhere to certain terms and conditions as otherwise, they will be accused of bonus abuse and will have their points and the free tickets they have purchased forfeited. Now, we shall outline said terms here to prevent this from happening.
First off, each new member of BGO Bingo can participate in this welcome promo only once per account and IP address. Those who attempt to claim multiple bonuses by registering several accounts will be deemed guilty of bonus terms violation. So do not bother to attempt that – it will not work. Only persons that are 18 years old or above are allowed to register and partake in the promotion.
Another condition prohibits new registrants from combining this welcome offer with other new-player bonuses. In other words, you cannot opt in for another offer as long as this bonus is active in your account. In that vein, it should also be specified that the free Candy Club Points you have received after depositing for the first time have a shelf life. They will remain valid in your account for a period of 90 days following the bonus redemption.
What deposit method you use to top up your new BGO Bingo account also does matter. Players who boost their bingo balance via the digital wallets Skrill and Neteller do not qualify for this welcome package. Luckily, BGO works with a variety of secure banking methods so there are plenty of alternatives for you to pick from, including PayPal, Paysafecard, Visa, Maestro, and Mastercard.
One of the biggest benefits of opting in for this bonus is the absence of wagering requirements on the profits you gain from your free bingo tickets. So if you want to process a withdrawal from your BGO Bingo balance, you can do so at any time.
The only downside is that players whose deposits are under £500 will be taxed 2.50% on their payments. For example, if you process a first deposit of £30, you will have a total of £0.75 deducted from your payment method’s balance. Respectively, if you deposit the entire £50 amount needed to receive all 500 Candy Club Points, you will incur an additional charge of £1.25. The minimum fee customers will incur is set to £0.50. In fact, this rule pertains to all deposits below £500 you make to your BGO account and not only to those that qualify you for the bingo welcome offer.
