Just saw this post now.. Wow, that's a long transcript!
But nonetheless you are completely right. If you play with €5 fake money and end up winning the pot with real money. You'll have €25 euro, which you cannot cash out. Then the bingo-hall won it all.
But in all fairness, there is a lot of nice bingo-halls who are not scams
@Ricardo666 says all casino, poker and bingo are scams, and of course they are not. There are some sites who might hustle you, but a little googling will always help.
I like to play bingo, but just for fun and with low, low stakes. I play at a bingohall who offers af 95 % payout which means, in the long run i'll lose €5 for every €100 i bet. But it's still the highest payout rate for bingo on any sites. Other (hustler sites) are on around 55%. That means, if you buy a ticket for €5, only €2.75 will go to the prize pool and the rest directly into the bingohall.
Most of the bingo places here on Bankrollmob are all with great payouts and they should more or less be trustable. I haven't taken a look at all bonusses, but i do not think, that any of them offer a fake bonus like the one discribed in this thread.
