Bingo Rules & Regulations: All You Need To Know
If you’re looking to start playing online bingo games, then it’s important you understand the rules and regulations associated with the game.
It’s one of the UK’s favourite pastimes, but it’s also heavily regulated and there are many things you should know before you start playing.
Here at Moon Bingo we are fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and below you’ll find all you need to know about the various laws, rules and regulations in place to keep bingo fair and players safe.
Bingo Rules & Regulations
Among the most important and notable rules and regulations associated with online bingo are cited on this very page. For the full list of laws visit the UK Gambling Commission website.
What is the Legal Age For Playing Online Bingo?
As with all gambling in the UK, the legal age for playing bingo online is aged 18 years and over.
This applies to both bingo halls and online bingo games, alongside slots and all casino sites.
Who Regulates Online Bingo in the UK?
Online bingo is regulated in the UK by the UK Gambling Commission. The commission was set up back in 2005 as part of the Gambling Act 2005 and it polices all casino sites and bingo sites operating in the country.
Here at Moon Bingo we are licensed by the Government of Gibraltar and are part of the 888 Group, one of the most respected gaming companies on the planet. We are fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and ensure complete fair play and player safety.
How Are Bingo Games Fair?
As part of the UK Gambling Commission license and regulation, bingo games must operate using a random number generator.
The way random number generators, or RNGs as they are often referred to, work are by using a mathematical algorithm that generates sequences of numbers, which in turn then draws a corresponding number in the bingo draw.
This ensures that the ball drawn is completely at random, with an equal chance of any ball being drawn at any time.
This is the same sort of technology used for online slots and all other casino games at online casinos.
Player Safety & Security
At Moon Bingo and every other online bingo site in the UK, we have a duty of care for our players and that means offering a number of features for players, including deposit limits and the ability to freeze your account.
This allows players to be responsible with their play, while we also have a customer support team who are always available to answer any questions or queries a player may have.
Chat Room Regulation
At Moon Bingo we pride ourselves on the chat room and community which they build. We have a welcoming crowd here but the chat rooms are heavily monitored to ensure players are safe, as well as no inappropriate content landing in them.
The chat host is largely responsible for this and we have an expert team of hosts that keep all the room entertained and completely in-line.
We also monitor for particular words, themes and phrases which will be removed from the chat and players potentially banned or suspended dependent on the circumstances.
