Tips For New Online Bingo Players
Some people think that because they are adept at playing bingo they can automatically become an online bingo whiz. Unfortunately this is not the case and there are a few things that every new online bingo player should know.
The first thing players need to do is make sure the bingo site they are considering is legitimate. Some gambling sites are run by some shady characters but fortunately criminality is rare in the online bingo industry. Occasionally there are disputes but usually these are settled amicably. New players should always check the reputation of any online bingo site. Thanks to the internet this is easy to do. Go to bingo review sites, blogs and forums. The best information usually comes from other players. There are some review sites that have been set up to promote a specific bingo brand but these are easy to spot.
Unfortunately there is no "Better Business Bureau" to rate the hundreds of bingo sites on the internet. Players in the UK and Europe have access to licensed and regulated bingo sites and enjoy consumer protections not available in other parts of the world. Players in the United States may have difficulty finding a reputable online bingo site. Fortunately many bingo sites licensed in Europe accept American players. The real problem for American players is funding their accounts at bingo sites. Pre-paid credit cards are a good solution and there are third party payment processors that will handle gambling related transactions.
New players should always look for free games. Most bingo sites offer free games and at some sites players can win real cash playing free games. Free bingo games have another advantage: they allow new players to try out the site's software without risking any money. At most sites players are required to register before playing the free games. Players that don't like the game software can simply move on to another bingo site.
New players should pick a strong password when they sign up at a bingo site. Avoid using birthdays and other easy to guess names and numbers. There are several sites that will check the strength of passwords. Under no circumstances should players divulge their passwords to other players. If players forget their password most bingo sites will offer the player the option of receiving the password in a private email.
