Online bingo is growing in popularity and it’s easy to see why. People can play at a time that’s convenient for them, whether it’s planned or spur of the moment. They can also play wherever they like, such as on their sofa or with a coffee in a café. But not all online bingo games are free, so if you’re new to the game over the net, how do you deposit funds?

Do all Online Bingo Games require a Deposit?

No, not all of them. There are some games that players can play for free, without the need for buying tickets to gain access to join certain rooms. For instance, some sites have bingo rooms where players can join to play free bingo.

Playing free bingo is handy for players new to the game, just so they can get to grips with how to play and the mechanics of that particular site. Very often these rooms are open for specified times over certain days and may have terms and conditions attached. These are always worth reading before you start playing, so that you know if the room is right for you.

How do I make a Deposit?

Most sites have several ways for online bingo players to deposit in their account in readiness to play a game or two of bingo. Having different payment methods will appeal to more customers and also makes a site appear more trustworthy. Ways to make a deposit typically include debit cards, Apple Pay, bank transfer, PayPal, and alternative payment methods, such as Skrill and Neteller.

If you’re planning to make a deposit, you’ll need to first make an account with the bingo site. The site will need to confirm your identity so will request photographic proof, such as a passport or driving licence, along with either a utility bill or bank statement, which has to be under 6 months old. Once all this has been verified, you’re then able to open an account and make a deposit to play bingo. Before you do this, you’ll need to enter your preferred way to pay and receive money.

How do I make a Withdrawal?

If you’ve won a game or two of bingo and decide to make a withdrawal from your account, you’ll often only be able to do this from your main account. For instance, if you play several games online on one site, and have won money in each game, you’ll need to transfer the money you wish to withdraw into your main account.

This will need to be done before withdrawing it from the site. Different payment methods may have different times of withdrawal. Some card withdrawals can take between two and five working days, for example. Visa Direct may take around two hours or be instantaneous.

Knowing what payment methods an online gaming site has available to you, as a player, is important. You’ll want to know if any of their payment methods match up to the ones you use online because, otherwise, you’ll have to decide whether to start using a new method or opt for playing on a different site. This is why many sites have several methods for their customers to use to pay. They want to accommodate customers, and different payment methods often mean that the site is trusted by several institutions, which instils confidence.
