With Free Bingo, players can play one of the most popular games without risk or deposit requirement. However, you can still win cash prizes. In addition to free bingo, bingo sites also attract players with some extra bonuses, loyalty points, hourly promotions and gift cards!
Early versions of bingo were spotted way back in the 1500s when Italian carnival barkers rattled off numbers and players placed disks on cards to track their progress. The game continued to grow in popularity and found its place in the UK as well, where it brought communities together.
There are two main reasons behind Bingo’s popularity: the opportunity to build camaraderie and the fact that the game doesn’t require a specific skill set, i.e. it is quite easy.
The Rise In Bingo Popularity
We mentioned the two main reasons behind the immense bingo popularity. Bingo is a pretty straightforward game, get your bingo ticket or tickets and see if your numbers will be drawn.
Plus, there’s the social aspect. Bingo is a social game and playing bingo gives you an opportunity to socialise with your friends and to meet new people. Not having to spend any time learning how to play the game, combined with the social element and the opportunity to earn prizes with a smaller wager are the key elements behind bingo’s popularity.
In the UK bingo popularity grew particularly after the Second World War. It wasn’t just large cities that featured bingo halls, at one point there were 600 halls throughout the country. The number started decreasing after 2005, but not because bingo was becoming less popular. It was due to online bingo and its increased popularity and market size. Online bingo was growing, while traditional land-based bingo was stagnating or declining.
One of the biggest advantages of online bingo is free bingo – an option that’s only available online. Here at Blighty Bingo we offer a range of free bingo rooms. In fact, there are five free bingo rooms.
Types Of Online Bingo
Up until a few years ago, bingo fans had to go to a bingo room to play their beloved game. Taking bingo online made things a lot easier, allowing both homebound players to enjoy a good game, as well as busy people to play whenever and wherever they want.
There are two types of online bingo. First, there’s the traditional one, which works like any bingo hall. You buy cards and play with a group of people until someone wins.
Then there’s free bingo which is great for beginners who want to explore the game first before spending money online. Free bingo doesn’t require a deposit and it teaches players everything they need to know in a low-risk environment. While the payouts aren’t as high as a paying game, it is still possible to take home a little extra cash if you’re lucky.
No Generation Gap Online
Bingo was seen as the old folks’ game and rightfully so. Just visit any bingo hall and you’ll see what we’re talking about. The situation is different online and it is safe to say that online bingo brought young people closer to the game. While people below 40 or so were more reluctant to pop down their local bingo hall, they are a lot more likely to register with an online site like Blighty Bingo.
It doesn’t matter whether your playing free bingo for fun, no money deposit is required for that, or you enter one of the paid rooms, there will always be other bingo players who are there to have fun and play bingo, just like you.
Millennials are discovering bingo through the medium of internet, which is not surprising at all, this is how they became acquainted with a lot of phenomena. But just as online bingo enabled millennials to get familiar with bingo, it also worked the other way around – namely, it made the internet as a whole a lot more understandable for baby boomers who were otherwise familiar with bingo. A vast majority of bingo fans nowadays prefer playing online. There are few reasons for that. We already mentioned the first and strongest reason – free bingo.

How To Get The Best Out Of Free Bingo
It is not difficult to find free bingo games and to participate. In most cases you gain access to a free bingo room as soon as you register an account, without even having to make a deposit first, let alone make a real money wager.
Here at Blighty Bingo you will gain access to the Free 4 You room as soon as you register an account with us and log in for the first time. That’s right, all registered players have access to this room. And there are fixed bingo prizes that you could win. Yes, you could win without paying a penny for the bingo ticket, that’s quite handy.
Players who are more active and have purchased at least a few real-money bingo tickets can expect even more perks and benefits. As soon as you make a deposit you will gain access to our £250 Saucy Sunday room and the room title is pretty self-explanatory here – the game takes place on a Sunday and the winning prize is £250. All prizes are in real money, which means that if you win one of the jackpot prizes, you can use the funds as you please.
And things don’t stop there, when you’ve deposited at least £5 in the last seven days, you gain access to the £1K Mondays room, and once again, the room title makes things pretty clear – the prize is £1K and the game takes place on Mondays, or to be more precise on Mondays at 22:30.
Once you become a member of our Loyalty Programme you’ll gain access to daily promotions, including daily bingo tickets and daily free spins. So, free bingo tickets are available every day. Once you reach Level 6 and higher you could get an invitation to join the Ace Club free bingo room, whereas if you manage to reach Level 11 you might be invited to play in the Ace Club Diamond room.
The best part about our Free Bingo programme is that you get to play free bingo games for cash, o deposit is required. As soon as you register you gain access to one of our free bingo rooms and then if you make deposit you will gain access to more free bingo.
Why Try Free Bingo
Free Bingo is the perfect choice for players looking to gain a better understanding of the game without any risk. Even experienced bingo players sometimes visit the free bingo rooms to test a new type of a game, or simple use the chance to win a real money prize, without having to make a real money wager.
Free bingo also gives you the possibility to test-drive different apps and websites. This can be very useful, as every online Bingo site has different levels of usability and layout, some more to your liking than other. Remember, Bingo is also about building a community, and you might want to play Bingo for free on several different apps before you find a group of people you enjoy chatting with more than others.
There’s a third reason for giving free Bingo a try – to get used to the pace. Bingo tends to be a fast-paced game, and if you’re not paying enough attention, you can easily fall behind. Many bingo professionals recommend the free areas as a starting point to get used to the speed and get ready for the real money games.
