What is the best new online bingo site?
This is a very subjective question. For me the best new sites to launch in recent years have been Buzz Bingo (2018) and PlayOJO Bingo (2020). Both have launched with no wagering and invested in unique games exclusive to them, which puts them above all the other new brands I've seen recently.
Which new bingo sites have free bonus?
If you're talking about a no deposit bonus, or you want to play without first making a deposit, then you're going to struggle finding a site like that. No deposit deals are rare these days, especially for new sites, but you can still find one or two out there. Check our No Deposit Bingo page for the latest offers.
Are there any new virtue fusion bingo sites?
Playtech (virtue fusion) are one of the most exclusive bingo networks, and tend to only work with the biggest brands such as Mecca and Gala. It isn't often a new brand comes to market on their software. New sites tend to choose one of the cheaper, more accessible providers such as Dragonfish and Pragmatic Play.
Are new bingo sites trustworthy?
All the sites we list on HowAbout Bingo are licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. All have to abide by pretty strict rules regarding protection of player funds, responsible gambling and marketing to players - rules which we too have to abide by. That's why you'll always see key terms & conditions alongside any offer or promotion.
Are new bingo sites secure?
All bingo operators are required to have secure websites and processes for storing your personal and financial information. It is the same for any website in the UK that collects personal details as part of a membership. I've never known any major data breach or security issue at any bingo operator in the UK.
What payment options are there at new bingo sites?
Debit card is the default deposit option for most bingo sites and many accept other forms of payment such as Paypal and Paysafecard. However, usually your first deposit does have to be a debit card due to anti-money laundering rules. Credit cards are no longer accepted at any bingo site.
How many online bingo sites are there?
There are a few hundred online bingo sites in the UK market, but most have been established several years ago when market conditions made it really cheap and easy to launch a bingo site. Nowadays, increased taxation and stricter marketing rules have made it harder for new sites and so not many come to market as they did in the past. On average, there are maybe 1 or 2 new site launches every 2 to 3 months.
Are there any free bingo games at new sites?
Yes, although some new sites may choose not to have any free bingo at all. In general, new sites that offer free games will usually have some kind of restriction in place such as they're only available for a limited time, or available only to players who have deposited within X number of days.
What are the advantages of playing at a new bingo site?
One of the biggest advantages of joining a new site is that sometimes they'll have a standalone room that isn't on the wider network. This means if you're one of the first players to join the site, your chances of winning are greater (as there aren't many players). If that room ever offers a special event, such as guaranteed prize money, those first events are usually very profitable as not many players know about them yet.
