Selecting a Safe Online Bingo Site

Online bingo is one of the most popular games on the internet. There are hundreds of bingo sites online licensed in several jurisdictions. Regulations in the various licensing jurisdictions range from stringent to nonexistent. The openness of the internet has made it easy for scammers to set up shop and unfortunately there are a few bad apples in the online bingo industry. Fortunately it is easy for potential players to identify sites that conduct business in a less than honest manner. Here are a few tips to help you select a reputable online bingo site.

Always check the licensing jurisdiction. Google can be a player’s best friend and it is easy to do some quick research on any country where the site is licensed. Most European licensing jurisdictions are safe and bingo sites must adhere to strict European Union rules and regulations. The UK gaming commission maintains a ‘white list’ of approved licensing jurisdictions. Approved jurisdictions include Gibraltar and Malta. Bingo sites licensed in these countries must meet certain standards and players can be confident that bingo sites licensed in these countries are aboveboard. Sites licensed in the Caribbean should be approached with caution due to lower licensing standards. Bingo news and bingo review sites are a great source of information and many list the jurisdiction the various bingo sites are licensed in. Reputable bingo sites will always list the country they are licensed in.

Be sure to check deposit and withdrawal options. You wouldn’t just hand your money to a stranger would you? Check the security features on the site and the banking options. Make sure to read all the terms and conditions associated with withdrawals. There are some internet bingo sites that make it as difficult as possible to withdraw winnings. You should be able to withdraw winnings anytime you choose. Make sure that all financial information is encrypted and uses a reliable security system.

Always read the FAQ section of any bingo site. Usually you will find the answer to most questions you may have. Check out their customer service. Is there a phone number or live support? Once again bingo reviews can be great sources of information about any site. Keep in mind that some bingo review sites are owned and operated by bingo sites and may not be independent and impartial.

Once you have found a suitable site be sure to use the free play option to check out the games. Some sites provide free bingo with no strings attached while other may require you to make a small deposit to use the free play option. Once you have found the right bingo site get ready for hours of exciting and entertaining bingo fun!
