Playing Online Bingo And Paying Securely

Almost all online bingo sites accept players that are located in Canada, while providing safe and reliable options for Canadians to quickly make deposits or withdraw their winnings. As many of the provinces in Canada have been looking into regulation recently, the number of viable payment options available to bingo players should increase during the upcoming year.

Currently, for the convenience of Canadian players deposits can usually be made through Instadebit, Neteller, Click2Pay and Visa and MasterCard. You’ll find it helpful that at each of the sites that we recommend here, detailed information regarding the different accepted payment methods are made available on each site.

It should be noted that transactions are recorded and tracked in US dollars as preferred by most Canadian players. Funds deposited in a different currency may be converted to dollars at the current rates.

Most often, approved transactions will be credited automatically to your account so that you can begin playing bingo right away. The name and address on your bingo account should match the name and address on the credit card used to add funds to your bingo account.

For your safety and protection most sites today will store your information using 128-Bit encryption behind multiple firewalls, where unauthorized access is prohibited. This level of protection gives you the confidence to enjoy the time you are spending on your favorite bingo site without having to think about the safety of personal information.

Play bingo – How To Play Live Online Bingo Games For Free

If you are a bingo player from Canada looking to get started with playing online with some free money, here are a few pointers for you:

First of all, now is a great time for Canadian players to get started playing bingo online. The internet is full of  online bingo websites that will let you get started for free. As a matter of fact, many sites will even let you “keep” or even withdraw a certain percentage of the winning earned while trying their site.

Here a few tips to get the most out of the generous no-deposit bonuses that are being offered at the moment:

Step #1: Get Started With A Site That’s Made For Canadian Players.

While all sites may seem to be created equally, finding a genuine bingo site that lets players from Canada play free, may take just a little bit of leg work. A quick browse through the search engines with the keywords “free bingo ”, will probably bring you a few hundred thousand results. This may seem like a positive thing, but in reality can make actually choosing the best site for you a bit of a task.

A better bet might be to start by searching for a site that has bingo reviews for Canada players, as they may be better suited to your needs than a site that has a player base of players primarily from other parts of the globe. While the differences may some subtle to someone who’s just starting out playing bingo online, over time you will come to find that the types of games that are favored, and even some of the chat “lingo” that is used will be quite different on sites that have a large base of players from other countries.

Once you’ve made your choice the next step gets quite a bit easier.

Step # 2: Create A Free Account and Receive Your Free Money

Today, most bingo game websites will let you get started with a quick and easy sign-up process that will let you create your free bingo account in just a matter of minutes. To do this, you’ll need to go ahead and the site’s registration form for new players. It’s best to provide the site with up to date and accurate information, including using a valid e-mail address, as this will be where you’ll receive the login information that you will need to access the site for the first time. Failure to provide the correct information may slow the process down, and you may also miss out on some of the newest offers that the site may be promoting to new players.

Once your information has been confirmed, you’ll be awarded your sign-up bonus, which is basically money that is free for you to go ahead and use to try out their bingo games with no obligation. Some sites will also offer you a free trial of their casino games along with your bingo bonus.

While it’s free money, it’s also good to remember that it is real money, and it makes sense to spend it wisely. With a bit of luck you’ll not only get a chance to try out a site with no obligation, but head into the action with a few bucks already built up in your account to help you gain some momentum right out of the gate!

Honestly, this is the entire process in just two easy steps- how easy and simple is that?

If you’re ready to go ahead and get started, why not choose one of these sites that are the top choices of many of our fellow Canadians (and bingo lovers!)

You really can’t go wrong with any of these sites, so go ahead any one (or all) of them a try!
