Online casino bonuses
Why casino bonuses
The aim of bonuses within the online casino world is, of course, to attract more people to start playing. There are a lot of different terms and conditions regarding bonuses. Make sure that you always read and understand these before you start gambling at the online casino of your choice. It is not always as good as it seems. Sometimes there are terms which make it very difficult to have your bonus cashed out.
Different types of bonuses
The online casino world offers you a lot of different bonuses. We advise you to always check the website of an online casino and see which bonuses they offer you and how high they are. Another point of attention is the payment terms and conditions in general and in relation to bonuses. Make sure you read and understand these before you start playing for real money.
On this page we will provide you with a description of the most occurring bonuses.
Welcome bonus/Sign up bonus
When you sign in on an online casino for the first time you often receive a bonus. This can be a fixed amount or a percentage of the amount you deposit. Keep in mind that if it considers a percentage there is usually a maximum amount which you can receive. For example an online casino offers you a 100% bonus with a maximum of €/£/$200.
The bonus is usually directly on your gaming account and ready to be played. Often you do have to play for a specific stake before you can can cash out.
This is the most common type of bonus. The cashable bonus is not always applicable to all casino games. This differs from casino to casino, so always check at the online casino of your choice on what casino games the cashable bonus is applicable. A cashable bonus can be freely cashed out once you have gambled for a specific stake. To give an example: a random online casino gives a cashable bonus of 100% above your deposit with a 20x bonus wagering requirement. After you deposit €/$/£100, you receive the 100% bonus (€/$/£100), increasing your balance to €/£/$200. After you have placed a total of €/£/$2000 (100x20) worth of wagers in the online casino, you can withdraw your bonus.
A sticky bonus is a bonus which will be sticked to your stake, you can use it to wager but it can never be withdrawn.
The advantage of this bonus is that you can wager with a higher amount.
There are some terms and conditions, but if you fulfill these you can have your money withdrawn (this is of course without the sticky bonus).
It might be useful to raise your budget by playing with a cashable bonus first, after which you start playing with a sticky bonus.
Cash back bonus
If you lost some money with playing an online casino game, some online casinos offer you a cashback bonus. This is only applicable once you have lost your wage. If you make a profit, as small as can be, the cash back bonus is no longer applicable.
The cash back bonus is a reimbursement of a percentage of the losses incurred by you, over a specific period of time.
Complementary points or comp points
Some online casinos offer you comp points. You can earn these points by playing different kind of casino games. The number of points can be different per casino game.
Once you have collected a specific amount of points you can exchange these for money, prizes or a part of your stake.
A surprise bonus is added to your gaming account by surprise or you will see a pop-up with the announcement that you won this bonus. This kind of bonus will only be rewarded to you if you are registered at the online casino.
Online casinos often offer you a lot more extra bonuses. There are, for example, the ladies day bonus, Wednesday evening bonus, High Roller bonus (if you make a high deposit) etc. These and other extra bonuses will always be mentioned at the website of the online casino. Make sure you always read the terms and conditions first before you start gambling. If you still have questions do not hesitate to contact the helpdesk of the online casino.
