Get the chance to play real money bingo without getting out your flexible friend!

That's right there are a few bingo sites with free sign up bonus money that allow new players to test out their sites for real. It may sound too good to be true but there really is no catch.

Sites like City Bingo, Fancy Bingo and Sing Bingo plus some others are so keen to get new players that they have decided to give away free money to new players to check out there software and community and see if their site is for them.

This is a great opportunity for new players, but is this good for the operators and how can they afford to do this? Actually it is a great deal for the operators as they get to show off their offering to potential customers in a way that their competitors are unable do; by actually allowing them to play their games and make real wagers. The operator gets to collect customer information with which they are free to advertise to as long as they are registered. For the player its also a great deal as they can clearly have some fun for free in exchange for the opportunity to be advertised to.

It really is a winning proposition for both sides but it sounds like it could be open to exploitation. Well operators do have to protect themselves from those people that sign up with the intention of making a quick buck. Therefore the operators have put in place wagering requirements before withdrawals can be made from free bonus wins.

The wagering requirements usually mean that the player has to have made wagers of 5x, 10x or sometimes 15x the amount of their win before a withdrawal can take place. It is important to note that the wagering requirements are only imposed on wins made from bonus money only. Wins made from cash deposits are not subject to wagering requirements. Ultimately what this means is that only players that actually go on to become depositing customers will be able to withdraw money made from bonus wins.
