Everything You Need To Know About Online Bingo

HowAbout Bingo

Update: 27th May 2021

Hey everyone, this week I noticed that Bingocams had been given a bit of a makeover, so I went over to check it out.

As I was looking around, I noticed their latest live win videos. This is when you win bingo, it records video from your webcam and you can do a little celebration.

I find these videos fascinating as you get to see what the other players look like, sound like and even get a glimpse inside their homes. If you're a nosey person you'll love it! So for a bit of fun, I decided to film my reaction to some of these winning moments. Hope you enjoy!

What's Bingoing on?

If you wish to keep track of all the latest news, events and promotions going on around the bingo sites, then take a look at my bingo news & blog page.

This is where I'll be publishing all the latest news, blog posts and other articles about the UK online bingo scene. Here are my latest posts:

Not a lot of movement on the new sites front beyond the recent launch of BetVictor Bingo.

Head over to our new online bingo sites page, which lists all the best new bingo sites for 2021, plus you can also see which sites opened in 2020, 2019 and 2018. I also feature the latest bingo games to launch as well as any newly redesigned sites.

Latest Bingo Games

Online bingo isn't just the same old 90 ball you play in the clubs. There are so many unique and interesting bingo variants, with new ones coming out all the time.

Here are some of the most interesting bingo games to launch over the past year. You can find even more in our Bingo Games Directory.

Bingo Offers For every Budget

To make it easier to find the right bingo site for your budget, I've split all the bingo welcome offers into three groups, dependant on the amount you wish to spend on your first deposit.

The standard first deposit at an online bingo site in the UK is £10, but we also have several £5 deposit offers as well as a small handful of no deposit deals. Click on the links below to browse each of the sites.

£10 Deposit Bingo Sites£10 deposit offers
Every single bingo site out there will have some kind of deposit offer, and the industry standard is a minimum £10 spend. So this list has pretty much every offer we can find in one place.
£5 Deposit Bingo Sites£5 deposit offers
For those players looking to spend a little less than £10 there are some offers out there that can be triggered for as little as £5. Check out our list of £5 bingo offers here, as well as a lowdown on sites who in general do also accept £5 deposits as standard.
No Deposit Bingo Sitesno deposit offers
They say you don't get anything in life for free, but there are still a small number of bingo sites that will let you try them out on a no deposit basis. Find all those sites here as well as those who offer regular free bingo games for registered players.

HowAbout Bingo

Hi, I'm Wayne and I've been writing about online bingo since 2006. I've played at hundreds of bingo sites over the years so I know which UK bingo sites are the best, and which you should avoid.

I play online bingo almost every day - either for my own pleasure or to test out the latest new bingo sites, bingo games or bingo promotions.

If you fancy playing a bit of online bingo, everything you need to know is right here. If you're not sure where to start, just send me a message and I'll help you if I can.

Latest Bingo Reviews Added

Since I launched this site in December 2020, I have written reviews for over 50 online bingo brands (and counting) available to UK players. For each site I deposit at least £10 of my own money, play as many of the games as I can and then report back with what I think about the site.

These are just the latest brands I have reviewed (not a list of the best sites). To see ALL the bingo sites I've reviewed to date head over to the Bingo Sites A-Z page.

Wayne's Top 3 Sites This Month

Being a bingo reviewer I move around the sites quite a lot, so my favourites change from time to time depending on who is doing what each month.

For May I've chosen the two new brands, Prize Land Bingo and Bingo Britain - as both are offering something new to the market. Mecca pick up third position on account of their big Summer Treats promotion running this month.

Why You Can trust HowAbout Bingo

HowAbout Bingo is 100% owned and operated by me, Wayne Howe. It is not run by an overseas corporation or by people who've never played bingo themselves. I'm genuinely an online bingo player and play every week usually in the evenings when my three boys have gone to bed.

I've worked in online bingo since 2006, managing several online bingo sites & communities, including WhichBingo, FreeBingo UK and WhichCM. I'm also the editor of the quarterly BingoData Report, a B2B publication which monitors player activity at the top online bingo sites.

You can find out a little more about me and why I decided to launch this website on the About Us page.

How this site is funded

HowAbout Bingo is completely free to use and doesn't allow advertising. Bingo sites cannot pay to appear on the site. Once reviews are written about each bingo brand, I then look to see if I can find 'affiliate links' for them.

These look and work in the same way as normal links, but if someone clicks through, the link is tracked and may generate a payment to the site. Sometimes this is a one-off fee, sometimes it is a share of profits (i.e. your losses), sometimes a bit of both.

Often these affiliate links will give you a better deal than if you went directly to the website.

I want you to know when links are affiliated

Unlike many sites who use affiliate links, I will be identifying each one with a ⭐ either alongside the offer, link or bingo site logo.

This is so you know which will contribute to the running of this site, so you can make your own decision. Obviously I hope you'll choose the ones that help me continue doing what I love, playing and writing about online bingo!

I'll still be writing about and recommending sites that I'm not affiliated with, which means you'll probably find sites and promotions here that you could never find anywhere else.

Best of luck to you.
