Online bingo tourney playFed up with playing monthly tourneys on your favourite site and not quite hitting the mark? You need to get familiar with the way in which most bingo online tourneys are played out and to figure out which type best suits your way of playing.

There are in fact only two main types of tourney around on most of the bingo sites we have in our directory: those which you have to play as often as possible to accrue points and those where you just have to play and deposit once to be entered into the prize draw.

Of course, with the latter tourney type, the more you play the more entries you'll have stacked up in the 'hat' in advance of the draw at the end of the month but with these types of tourneys (in which you will usually win a pair of tickets to a show or a dinner date) you can still win on one play whereas with points-based tourneys require commitment to win.

The most prominent example of the monthly tourney requires a certain amount of stamina as a player and a commitment to the prize in order to be the player to walk away with the holiday or money. These types of tourney are a fantastic means of getting to know other players as you will be required to play in the set games in order to get enough points to win.

Having fun meeting other roomies who also fancy a cruise is just as good a reason to play in one of these tournaments and don't forget your site will recognise your loyal play whether you win the main prize or not. This means that whichever bingo site you play on - even if you don't win - you're bound to win in other ways such as becoming the roomie of the week or collecting more points toward a cash rebate. However, every site is different and you should check the terms and conditions of any tourney before deciding if you can meet the requirements for the big win.
