Got a mind-boggling question? You’ll probably find the answer in our Frequently Answered Questions below.
Q. I’ve forgotten my login details. What do I do?
A. Don’t worry, simply click here to go to our Forgotten Password page & follow the simple steps to retrieve your details.
Q. I just purchased some tickets in a room and my PC crashed. What will happen to my tickets?
A. As soon as a ticket is purchased on our site it will play regardless of your connection status. If your ticket is a winner, then you’ll be credited with that win as the outcome is generated on our game servers. If a game does not play, the stake will automatically be credited back after 24 working hours.
Q. Do you offer any deposit bonuses on your site?
A. Yes, we offer a generous Welcome Bonus on your first ever deposit of £10 – £100. Also you can deposit £10 or more at any time with promo code WHEEL and spin the Wheel of Wins. Every spin guarantees a win and prizes include Bingo bonuses, Games Bonuses, Bonus Bundles, Free Spins and Bingo Tickets. (T&C’s apply)
Q. After requesting a withdrawal I noticed that my bonus funds have disappeared. Why is this?
A. In accepting any deposit bonus offer on the site, the player agrees to wager at least 2 x the total of (the amount of the deposit + the amount of the Bonus Funds) prior to requesting a withdrawal. Wagering must be done on bingo games only. If you do request a withdrawal before fulfilling this requirement you will lose part or all of the bonus funds.
Q. What is a wagering requirement?
A. A wagering requirement is a multiplier that represents the number of times you have to play through a bonus before you are eligible to cash out any winnings. Any winnings you make whilst playing on a game or category (cash or bonus stake) with outstanding wager requirements will be stored in a pending balance until you meet the wager requirement. You cannot withdraw cash from your pending balance. You will be able to spend those pending funds to work down the wager requirement in the meantime.

A. Only one account is permitted per player as per our Terms & Conditions. We reserve the right to close multiple accounts opened by a single player.

Source of Funds
Q. Why do I need to send you the source of the funds I spend with you? Is this a genuine request?
A. First of all, we can confirm that this is a genuine request.
From time to time we may need to request information from you that could be regarded as “personal”, but this is in order to abide by all UK gambling regulations and we guarantee that we will never share this information with any unauthorised third party.
Q. Why do I need to prove to you where my money comes from?
A. We fully understand that this may be the first time you have been approached about sending such personal information to a gaming company, but it is a clear licencing requirement from the Gambling Commission of Great Britain.
We take responsible gaming very seriously and aim to protect our players as best as we can. Therefore, as a betting operator, licensed and regulated to trade in the UK, we are obligated to know that the source of the funds you use to play with us, is legitimate.
There will be times when certain financial limits and thresholds are reached, and it may be necessary for us to ask our members to provide evidence to confirm the source(s) of funds they have been playing with. This information will only ever be used as an internal reference for ensuring our customers are gambling responsibly and in line with their available finances. No unauthorised third party will ever receive this information.
Bingo Loft is not alone in seeking this type of information from its customers; and it is highly likely that you will also be approached by other betting operators also requesting this information from you when your spend/play reaches certain levels.
Q. If I don’t send in proof of my source of funds, what will happen?
A. Unfortunately, if we do not receive the required information from you, we will be required to place financial restrictions on your account. However, if, at any time you choose to send us the required information at a later date, then we will gladly lift all restrictions.
Q. How will the information be used?
A. All information received will be treated as highly confidential. It will only be used to confirm that the money that you spend/play with comes from a legitimate source.
We have a professional and dedicated team who work to review and assess all information received in order to ensure your documentation meets the requirements that will enable you to continue to enjoy playing on our sites.
We fully understand that some of our customers have complex financial circumstances which may make this request more challenging to cooperate with. However, please understand that we must always adhere to all Gambling Commissions licencing requirements.
Q. What we need to receive from you:
