Default Bingo Terms and Conditions

Before you sign up at any Bingo, please always take the time to read the terms and conditions.

Most of them will be just fine, but some have really weird conditions for cashing out when you win something. You may decide not to play at such places.

Once you've signed up and played you are stuck with those conditions, and boy is it frustrating to win something nice and not be able to collect it.

Very good advice Dominique, especially so for free money!! I once knew someone that was playing with free money, and hit the progressive jackpot, and couldn't cash out any of it because they had never made a deposit.

So read the fine print!!!! even if you have to put on your glasses

Oh, that sounds just terrible! Imagine, you are all happy and then you can't get what you won.

I better start reading those, I usually am too keen to play to bother.

Thanks for the tip!

This is great advice indeed, and probably advice I should heed. I tend to get in a hurry and overlook some of the simple basic tenets of good business sense.

Good advice! I too tend to overlook the terms and conditions when it come to playing on a new site. You assume that all of the tems are the same, when if fact they are not!

It is very important to read terms and conditions!!

If you don't like them....don't play there!!! It's bad to think you won money...but really didn't!!

I knew a lady that had deposited many times at a particular site.. and then became ill.. so she didn't play for a few months.

The Bingo site emailed her, asking her to come back and play, and gave her $50 to play with.. she came back and won the PJP and they didn't want to pay her either, because it was won on free money..

She did eventually get her prize a few months later, after many members put up a fuss.. but great advice.. the entire thing could have been avoided by reading terms and conditions!

I think it's in the Bingo's own self interest to make these things just Crystal Clear and easy to read.

Player who win big and don't get paid get very angry, it's only human after an emotional roller coaster like that.

The reputation of a place can remain smeared for years over something like that - even if the Bingo was right - it was all in their terms.

These situations need to be avoided by both parties at all cost.

Unfortunately there are so many scams out there. You always need to keep your eyes open for bad apples
