Bookies and Casino Bonuses are Confusing, Bingo Leads The Way in Clarity

bonus money casino, bookies and bingo

When you go to sign up to a new betting site or online casino you get offered a bonus. As you will see right here on betsharks all bookies have a bonus displayed. Right now we are about to disply the main terms and conditions attached to each and every bonus. This is because of new guidelines set by the UK gambling commission.

This is a good thing, we already display 18+ and links to places people with any gambling issues will find useful.

The problem is that the terms and conditions vary greatly from casino to casino, bookies to bookie and it’s often very confusing to know exactly what you are signing up for!

Spending a lot of time keeping up to date and checking various bonus deals, t&C’s and ensuring whom we promote is compliant, licenced and regulated we see a lot of offer. One thing we noticed which was a real breath of Fresh air was the Tombola Bingo bonus deal.

Example of a clear bonus deal for customers:

Tombola says £50 free to play bingo. Deposit £25 play with £75. If this was a bookie it would be complex. If it was a casino you would need to wager the bonus money and often any winnings from it 30+ times before withdrawing it.

With this bingo site however it simply says “First deposit only. Any winnings can be withdrawn. Bonus money cannot be withdrawn.” How clear is that? Cashout your winning, you can never cash out the bonus! That makes perfect sense, as you get to play bingo with it, but not cash it out. Anything you win while using it can be withdrawn.

I think it’s time, and do think it will change soon that all casinos and bookies follow suit with much simpler t&c’s. It would make life a lot easier for all concerned. And players would know exactly what they are getting, this cuts down on complaints and angry customers who thought one thing, but got entirely another!

Well done Tombola – That’s a great way to keep it simple!
