What Are Newbie Bingo Rooms?

When the traditional no deposit bonus hit the skids in 2018, bingo operators started to look for other ways to attract new players. This led to an increase in newbie bingo rooms, special rooms offering free bingo games exclusively for new players. Rooms such as The Bingo Academy at Costa Bingo are accessible for just a few days with no deposit needed. However accounts do need to be verified, typically via mobile and/or adding debit card details. This verification process helps restrict multiple accounts, one of the reasons no deposit bonuses got abused in the early days. Prize pots in newbie rooms are, as you probably expect, very limited and it's worth noting that any wins are usually paid as bonus money with wagering terms rather than real cash. This means you would need to deposit and play through a few pounds before being able to make any withdrawals.

Deposit To Access Newbie Rooms

Some newbie rooms, for example at MrQ and Paddy Power Bingo are only accessible to new players that have made a first deposit and/or wagered. The wagers tend not to be much more than 1. However, many sites are happy to offer free bingo to their depositing players as a reward. These rewards may be in the shape of access to a special room for a fixed period of time or tickets to a one off game that day. Unfortunately everything varies from site to site but that does make checking out different brands a bit more exciting.
