Bingo - Prizes
Winners of Hobbii Bingo receive prizes selected by us at Hobbii.
The three "winning patterns" on the game card will typically be one horizontal row, then two horizontal rows and finally a full board. These patterns are determined solely by us and explained before each game. We can change the winning patterns of the game at any time, as well as the number of games in one night.
If multiple players win at the same time, a carousel will select one or more random prize winners. Bingo winners who are not selected by the carousel will always receive consolation prizes. It will typically be in the form of points that can be converted into products in the Point Store.
In order for us to deliver prizes to you, make sure you have entered all relevant contact information on your Hobbii member profile. We write to all winners after the end of the game.
Of course, all prizes are sent free of charge, and we typically send prizes within 2-3 working days 😊
Prizes or points cannot be exchanged for cash, other products, discount codes or the like.

Hobbii's Point Store
About Hobbii's Point Store
As a member of My Hobbii you automatically receive free access to our Point Store.
Because we love to spoil our customers, as a My Hobbii member you earn points every time you shop. Points that can be redeemed for exclusive items in the Point Store 😍
How to earn points
You must be a member and be logged in to receive points. As we mentioned, this is completely free! You earn points by shopping with Hobbii. There are lots of other ways to get points too! This includes writing reviews or uploading photos of projects (Read more in the “Point Store” menu).
Use of points
Your earned points can be converted into exclusive products and patterns in the Points Store. Your points are personal and cannot be transferred from one account to another. It is also not possible to exchange your points for money. We reserve the right to suspend, terminate, revalue or change all or part of how points are earned and what points can be used for - without liability or prior notice to you. From time to time, we may offer you benefits in return for the redemption of a certain number of your points.
Value of points
The amount of points you earn on your order depends on the size of the order. The bigger the order - the more points - the more beautiful products you can choose from in the Points Store 🤩 The number of points you receive by performing other actions on our website can be found under "How to earn points". Every time you spend £1, you will earn 25 points (with the exception of items purchased with a gift card).
Expiration of points
We would like your points to last forever - but if you don’t use them, they will expire 2 years after they are awarded. We will do our best to notify you long before they expire so you have a chance to use them. When you make a purchase in the Point Store your oldest points will always be used first.
If you decide to return an item or cancel an order, the points you earned on the purchase will be deducted from your balance. If you cancel your Hobbii membership, your earned and unused points will be permanently deleted.
Canceling access to the Point Store
If you no longer want access to the Point Store and you want to stop receiving points, you must cancel your “My Hobbii” membership under "Settings". If you cancel your Hobbii membership, your earned and unused points will be permanently deleted.
All inquiries regarding your account or the Point Store can be directed to our customer service team here.
