Bonuses in online casinos are one of the opportunities to attract players. In general, all bonuses can be divided into two groups:
– bonuses for a deposit (deposit bonus);
– bonuses without a deposit (no deposit bonus).
To get the deposit bonus (extra money or free spins) you are to replenish your account. The biggest reward is usually given for the first deposit. The more deposit is, the more a bonus sum is.
Types of deposit bonuses:
- bonus for the first deposit;
- bonus for the second and subsequent deposits;
- reload bonus;
- highroller bonus.
Bonus for the first deposit (FTD) – is extra money which a player can receive after replenishing his account. Recently, a combination of free spins and extra money occurs to be popular (for example first deposit bonus 100% up to $200 + 50 free spins).
Bonus for the second deposit – you put in on account and receive in advance the known bonus. Certainly, it is less than FTD.
Reload bonus – hypothetically anyone may get it regularly, no matter how many deposits were made. If the FTD is given to welcome new players, than reload one – to keep ‘old’ gamblers (to increase their bankroll and allow playing casino longer). The reload bonus is not given to everybody, usually to most faithful players.
Highroller bonus – is a bonus for those gamblers who prefer to play high bet. In fact, it is a first deposit bonus but a bigger one. As well as at any bonuses there is a wager from 10 to 50.
No deposit bonuses reward players for a registration.
As a kind of no deposit bonus, you can get free spins or free play bonuses. Free spins are spins without betting in some slots.
Freeplay bonus (“a bonus for an hour”) – is a rather big bonus given to players for a period of time (usually from 30 minutes to 2 hours, often only 1 hour) after signing up. Over time you can keep playing on your winnings and the bonus will be withdrawn from your account.
Cashback – is a small percentage of cash rewards for all lost money during a specified period. For example, you lost $1000. If you have the 5% cashback, you receive $50 back during payment time.
Before accepting this or that bonus offer, carefully read all conditions (a type of the bonus, wager, max bet, which slots you can play using this bonus). Sometimes there is more harm than good. Many casinos specially confuse their players by specifying a low wager and adding in brackets (deposit+bonus). Let’s say that wager is 20x (20x for the deposit + 20x for bonuses) then getting a 100% bonus the wager will be already 40x. Before accepting an offer count the REAL wager. If you decided to take it often, there is information on how much you must win back. Or you can write to support. You may lose your winnings if you violate the bonus offer. Play on trusted casinos only and read all the conditions very attentively!
