The Free Bingo Show from Channel Five first launched onto our small screens in October 2009 and was hailed as a replacement for Bingo Night Live which ended earlier the same year. Players have the chance to play free bingo games each and every week day by logging into their Five Play account and pre-booking tickets for the next show. The Free Bingo Show airs for an hour every week day from 11am and can be viewed online. Each show lasts about an hour and in this time there are about 10 games of bingo played.
Each game played during the show on Channel Five is 90 ball bingo meaning that there are three chances to win per game; 1 line, 2 lines and a full house.
Like the previous free bingo offering on our television screens from Bingo Night Live, the Free Bingo Show is sponsored by PartyGaming, a well known brand in the world of gaming online. You can also play Internet bingo, pay to play, at their site, Five Bingo accessible through links on the home page.
Charlie McArdle is the presenter, an already well known face on Channel Five who has fronted other shows like Make Your Play on ITV1, Price Drop TV and Gala TV. The latter of course gives him the insider knowledge from a big name in the world of bingo both online and offline.

Claiming any winnings
Prizes from the Free Bingo Show can be claimed in a couple of ways but an age verification process is in place with Channel Five. This process will need to be completed before any winnings can be paid out.
Your first option for receiving payment is to receive a cheque through the post or if you prefer you could register with Five Bingo sponsored by PartyGaming and any winnings derived from playing can be paid into your Five Bingo account.
This may not be a new concept to the world of online bingo but Bingo Night Live did leave a void when the show was pulled by the powers that be in television land, this may well be the show to fill that gap although currently only airing online.
