I love free bingo and signed up to Wlliam Hill, think they offered a few free spins which I took but I think when I looked, there was no free bingo so I left. 

I forgot all about them but then got an email saying I had used an offer that went against their terms and conditions 🤔 and that certain parts of the site were now off limits etc 

Intrigued, I went online and asked what had I done wrong, the lady replied my account was now actually shut and she could not tell me why 😳

I dont care as not fussed but I am extremely nervous why I've been barred in this way, anyone got any ideas why?

Only just opened account a few days back and played for initial 10 mins...

    Personally I would take being banned from a betting site as a good thing. 😆

    Presumably a warning.

    William Hill might close your account for no given reason.

    I suspect they closed it as they weren't making any money.  Might be something in the T&Cs that you need to bet £X in the first week or some such but as it was just free spins that's what's failed.

    Nothing to be concerned about in my opinion.
