How to Play Free Bingo at an Online Casino

Online bingo is extremely lucrative in the UK today. In the 2018-2019 UK tax year, it generated more than £1 billion in revenue – visit

The UKGC (United Kingdom Gambling Commission) released the UK gambling statistics in 2019 and since its transition online in the 1990s, the online gambling industry has become worth £5.6 billion in the UK alone.

Compared to other types of remote gambling in the UK, bingo is the fourth most profitable, achieving a gross gambling yield of £688.3 million in 2018.

It’s a financial superpower, and with all the money that gets moved around, it’s difficult to see why playing free bingo at online casinos, with no money involved, should still play such an important role.

What exactly is free bingo on a casino site?

In short, free bingo does exactly what the name suggests. If you’re unsure about gambling your money, or you want to try a particular game before you play for real, free demos are a useful introductory step to online casinos.

If you can imagine it a bit like a “try before you buy” offer, it’s a great chance for you to size up which site you like and which form of bingo suits you best, all without worrying about spending your money.

Most online casinos will offer a freebie game or a demo. They rarely require any registration process to play and there’s no obligation to sign up and spend money on them afterwards.

Bear in mind that you won’t win any real money on them, although there are often prizes, like branded merchandise.
