Online bingo; how do I get started?

First and foremost, it is essential that you find the bingo room which is the right one for you. Of course, choosing the `right´ bingo room is a highly individual thing. It is by no means certain that your friends, your family or your neighbour share your idea of what the `perfect´ bingo room should be like.

What does the term `wager´ mean?

When receiving bingo bonuses, you are bound to come across the term `wager´. If you are playing without a bonus, there will be no wager demand.

But let´s get down to business! When you make a deposit at an online bingo room, you may, for example, receive a 200 % bonus from the bingo room. This means that if you deposit £ 10, the bingo room will give you another £ 20, so that you have a total of £ 30 to play for. However, this money cannot be withdrawn right away, because then the bingo room would have put $ 20 in your wallet, entirely free of charge! If all players withdrew their bonus money right away, this could end up a rather costly affair to the bingo room.

Therefore, bingo rooms require you to `wager´ your money (`play it through´) a certain number of times, before you are able to receive the money. Just like the bonus arrangements themselves, wager demands (number of times that you have to play the amount through) vary from one bingo room to the other.

Let us return to the example above. If the wager demand is ten times, the calculation looks as follows: £ 10 x 10= $ 200. This means the bingo room requires you to play for £ 200, before you are able to withdraw your bonus.

 

 

Bingo software

The software is an important part of the online bingo experience. The settings in which you play online bingo are determined by the software. Therefore, you should seek out a software product which is nice-looking, pleasant and cosy, as well as easy to navigate.

 

How do I navigate the bingo software?

Generally speaking, finding your way around an online bingo rooms is easy. Software products vary from one bingo room to another. Some bingo rooms share software products with other bingo rooms, so that the structures of these bingo rooms are very similar. Colours and other individual features may still vary, though.

In case you would like to see some of the bingo cards used by bingo rooms recommended by OnlineBingoRooms.com, we suggest that you read our article on the topic `Bingo cards´.

 

How do I download a bingo room?

You have now found the bingo room where you would like to play. Most online bingo rooms are browser based, meaning that the software starts working, all by itself. Thus, no downloads are needed.

However, you may come across bingo rooms that require you to download software, before you can start playing. But no worries! Downloading an online bingo room is very easy.

In case you need to download bingo software, you are asked if you want to start downloading (remember to click `Run´).

Once you have downloaded the software, you are asked to enter your personal data (name, address, etc.). Do not be afraid to do so. Such information is always treated with the strictest confidence.

You are now ready to deposit money into your bingo account.

 

 

Methods of payment

The most commonly used method of payment in online bingo is NETeller. At OnlineBingoRooms.com, we recommend that you use NETeller, since this is a very easy-to-use method of payment.

 

What is NETeller?

In fact, NETeller can be considered a kind of `virtual wallet´. Apart from making payments, and transferring prize money to your NETeller account, you can also transfer money from your ordinary bank account to your NETeller account, or vice versa. However, if you choose to do so, you will be charged a fee.

Below, OnlineBingoRooms.com has listed 4 advantages to using NETeller:

  1. No fees on receiving prize money.
  2. Money transferred to your NETeller account is at your disposal a split second after you have completed the transfer.
  3. NETeller has a live chat, where you can get help immediately, in case you experience any problems, have doubts, etc.
  4. You are able to get a NETeller ATM card, which can be used in all the ATM machines of the world. If you withdraw money on your NETeller ATM card, you will be charged a fee.

 

NETeller also charges you a fee, in case you would like to have your prize money sent to you by cheque. Furthermore, the exchange rate at NETeller is slightly lower than the standard exchange rate.

 

How to open a NETeller account:

If you wish to open a NETeller account, you must register at Neteller.com. Within 15-20 minutes, you will receive a phone call from Neteller, just to make sure that you are the one wishing to open an account. This is to prevent others from opening an account in your name.

Now, you must register your NETeller account. First, click on `Register bank Account´ in the yellow menu on the left. Then, enter your IBAN number and your SWIFT code (if you do not already have this information, contact your bank).

Within a week or so, NETeller will place an amount in your account. Log on to your NETeller account, and click on `Verify Bank Account´, in the yellow menu. Now, enter the amount that NETeller has placed in your account.

You are now a registered user of NETeller!

Let us now assume that you have won an amount of money in an online bingo room. Perhaps, you would like to have the money transferred to your ordinary bank account. If so, click `Withdraw´ and then `Make Withdrawal Now´ (further down on the homepage). Enter the amount that you would like to transfer to your bank account, and then click on `Make Withdrawal Now´. Then complete the transfer by clicking on `Confirm´.

Transfers from NETeller to a bank account may take a few days, since such transfers are carried out manually.
