The bonuses on most mobile bingo sites are very generous indeed. In fact, they are usually even better than the ones found on regular bingo sites, as the competition to get players is fierce. Most sites give at least a 100% bonus on first deposits, and they’ll also give you a little bit of free money to play with too.
