How to Join and Deposit in a Bingo Site?

To get started, let’s go through how to make an account and to make a deposit. On our site, we like to keep everything easy for our newbies, so we don’t require a whole lot of time or effort to get started. Our players each go through a three stage process, with just a few details needed about your age, contact details and other information – don’t worry we’re not too nosy!

Then, it’s time to go ahead and make your first deposit. You can use a few different methods to pay here, from your card details to PayPal. Each of these are pretty easy to use and you can deposit just a fiver with us if you like. You’ll automatically get a no deposit bonus and deposit bonuses on top too, so you’re always getting great value for money.

Bonuses and Promos

Before we get down to actually how to play online bingo, let’s look at the bonuses that we give you first. This will get you raring to claim them and ready to play before you know it:

We won’t take any money out of your account, we just need this for identification purposes.

Then you’ll get 25 free spins on Fluffy Too and access into our newbie room to play for free. This is a pretty simple offer, though there are expiry dates and wagering requirements for you to watch out for too. You can read more on the promo page.

This all kicks off with a huge 500% bonus on your first deposit, which will give you loads of additional funds to play with.

  • VIPs Only: We like to give our loyal players a little something extra, VIPs can use the code VIP125 for 125% bingo bonuses.

If you don’t use any of these codes then you’ll automatically get opted out of the bonus. If you do claim bonuses then you should be aware that we have terms, conditions and wagering requirements. Just a £5 deposit is all the money that you need to claim these bonuses.

Free Spins

These are a feature of many of our offers, including our no deposit bonus. These have slightly different terms, as we tell you which games you can play and how much your spins are worth. These can be lots of fun to play with, just make sure you know all about those wagering requirements, as they’ll be applied to anything that you win.

Free Bingo

Playing for free is one of the joys of bingo online, which is why we offer our players so many free games. These are your place to play for free and win yourself some bonus funds. You will need to be funded to play in these games though, so pop some cash in your account to join in after the newbie room.

Special Promos

You will notice that when you play with us, our bingo deposit bonuses and promos tend to change. We like to roll out special promos and tourneys to keep things interesting, just head over to the promotions section to see what we have on offer. These can often have even bigger prizes and bonuses, so keep your eyes peeled.

How do you Choose Which Game to Play on?

Now let’s find out about how to pick out the games that you should be playing on. Here are our top tips to pick and play in these games.

Different Types of Games

Playing on these games can be fun, but there are so many to choose from! Our top games are 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games. In 90 ball rooms, the game looks like this:

Your aim in this game is to dab off one, two or three lines of the card before anyone else in the room.

There’s also 75 ball bingo or pattern bingo that you can play here too. In these rooms, you will see the pattern that you want to create at the side and then it’s your job to make these with your cards, as you can see below.

Ticket Prices Vs Chances of Winning

Now that we’ve went over how to play bingo UK, let’s look at how to pick the rooms that will give you the highest chance of winning. Cheaper rooms will allow you to buy more tickets, but they may be busier which means you have a lower chance of being a winner. Try to get a good balance between each.

Times to Play

You’ll probably notice that bingo rooms are busier at different times, typically evenings and weekends are when most people are free. This is understandable but the busier a room is, the lower your chance of being the winner will be. Try to play on weekdays or later at night, as the rooms will be quieter then.

Of course, our special events and promos are super popular. Just weigh up whether it’s worth it to take part, don’t worry we always make sure we have plenty of prizes on offer. Our advice would be to try and get in when these promos or rooms are quieter but don’t restrict yourself too much either.

Buying your Bingo Ticket

Once you’ve chosen which room or event you want to be a part of, it’s time to buy a ticket. Just select the number that you want and then hit the buy button that you’ll find at the side of the screen. Then, these will be added into your account and the game will play out automatically.

How to Play Responsibly

We all love to play bingo but we want you to play safely and responsibly too, these top tips are the ones you need to do just that:

  • Watch your Balance – It’s a good idea to take a look into what you’re spending and making sure you don’t fly through your balance too quickly. Just take your time playing through it, even use bonus funds where possible to keep your balance high. If you feel like you’re spending too much then take a break.
  • Use the On Screen Reminders – We have clocks and balance reminders on our site, which can keep you aware of reality. You don’t want to spend hours and hours in the lobby, so make sure you keep an eye on the time. Again, have a break now and again if you need it.
  • Self-Exclude – If you want to take a bit of a break, but are finding it hard to keep to this, then you can request an exclusion if you like. Just get in touch with our help team and tell them what kind of limits you would like to add into your account. These will help you to steer clear when you need a bit of a break.

There are plenty of resources out there to help you play responsibly, including guides and additional information. This will help you to simply have a good time when you play, without getting into any problems.


We hope that this guide will help you to get your bingo fix and really enjoy what we have to offer here at Big Tease Bingo. Check out our promos and games to have an excellent experience when you play bingo. Just remember to play responsibly and you’ll enjoy it even more.
