Now, we all love us some bingo bucks here at the Bingo Finder, but every so often, we find ourselves hankering after some swag of the old fashioned variety. As much as money is never far from our minds in an online bingo game, sometimes we like to play for something a little different. Which is where Bingo Prize Nights come in. Read on for our top picks of the very best non-cash prizes that you can regularly play for right now!
What is it?!
So, the general premise with online bingo is that you’re playing for cash. And normally this is the case – after all, your ticket money goes into a pot in standard bingo games which you can then scoop if you’re lucky enough. But a bingo prize night works in a slightly different way. It’s actually a bit like a guaranteed jackpot – only you don’t get cash, just some top of the line prizes. Generally these are electrical items like TV’s, DVD players or Home Cinema systems, laptops, MP3 Players – or occasionally things like pampering gift sets or shopping vouchers.
Why do I want it?!
Well, like they say, money isn’t everything – and generally, these prize nights come with a great price tag and even better prizes. Sometimes we’ve found these games to be a little less packed than some of the big money guaranteed jackpot games that are always crowd pleasers, which means you might find yourself scooping the top prize. And of course, if you’re MP3 player has just broken or you fancy a high street splurge, you could find yourself satisfied in seconds!
Where can I get it?!
Although loadsa old and new bingo sites will feature one off prize promotions, the following five dazzlers have made our list for giving us some super swag on a regular basis. Try your hand at some of these, and see what you can walk away with!
