Sign-up war

Foxy Bingo's decision to cut the £10 incentive for new players back in June seemed like a radical move to stop the highly competitive recruitment drive for new players that exists in online bingo. Any online bingo site which is pooling its resources into better promotions and rewards for players always gets our vote, but since Foxy is already such a popular and established site can we really expect all the latest additions to the bingo universe to follow suit?

Since our article about this change of tactic was published we have taken on many a new internet bing site in our directory, most of which offer new players an incentive in the form of free cards or a free cash bonus to play. This can only be expected from new sites that need to boost numbers but how has it affected other sites that have been around longer?

Sites such as Gala Bingo now offer free bingo games once you are a depositing player and Jackpot Joy offer £10 free plays on sign up. Mecca are still offering their massive reward of up to £50 sign up reward, so no matter how it's worded newbies are still in the main being given an incentive to sign up with the bingo giants despite Foxy having withdrawn their offer.

We at Bingo Hideout love any site that is working primarily in favour of its existing players although we understand newbies like to feel welcomed to a bingo site too, so it's a difficult call for any new online bingo site to withdraw sign up incentives completely.
