Bonuses at Online Casino Sites

Online casino players around the world can benefit from thousands of different bonuses and the main ones include deposit bonuses and no deposit bonuses. Some of these bonuses require certain unique bonus codes, plus there are several other things that you should be aware of when claiming an online casino bonus.

Instant Bonuses:

An instant bonus is something that you will receive from a casino as soon as you have accepted what it is they are offering. Before accepting any bonus though, make sure that you familiarise yourself with the bonus terms and conditions. It may seem like you have to read a lot of small print, but it shouldn’t take too long. It is important that you know what exactly the bonus is offering you and you should also know about the wagering requirements that could be attached to the bonus.

As soon as you have received an Instant Bonus, it should automatically appear in your account. It may appear in your actual balance or it may appear as ‘bonus funds’. You may only have a certain amount time to spend this bonus cash, because some online casino bonuses have a tendency to expire with X amount of weeks/months, so hurry before you miss out.

Bonus Codes:

Some online casino bonuses run on a bonus code system which means that you need to enter a unique bonus code into the required field when attempting to claim your bonus. You may need to enter this bonus code in the cashier section or in the promotion area of the casino. If you had a code but lost it, the support should be able to help you out and activate the bonus for you.

If you do have a unique bonus code but it doesn’t seem to be working, check that you are entering the correct code, otherwise it won’t work. One of the other reasons why it might not be working is because the bonus code that you are trying to use may have already expired by the time you are using it. In other words, don’t hang on to your codes for too long because you could end up losing the bonus.

No Deposit Bonuses

One of the most common online casino bonuses currently available to players today is the No Deposit Bonus. This bonus is popular with players because you don’t need to spend any money to receive the bonus, hence the name. The only real requirement that you need to adhere to though when trying to cash out is that you must still make a deposit into the casino before you can withdraw any bonus winnings.

Alternatively, you may need to wager a huge amount in the casino before any winnings becomes cashable. Let’s just say that you received a $/€/£5.00 No Deposit Bonus and you win $/€/£100. You may then have to deposit a minimum of $/€/£20 in the casino and then spend that cash before you could withdraw. Wagering requirements and other similar T’s & C’s can be quite annoying, but there’s no way of getting away from them, unless you forfeit the bonus winnings.

Deposit Bonuses

The Deposit Bonus is quite possibly the most well-known casino bonus available online today. These deals run almost every day and they generally come with between a 20X to 40X wagering requirement. If you have just accepted a 100% matching deposit bonus worth up to $/€/£200 with a 20X wagering requirement and you deposited $/€/£20, it means that before you could cash out you would need to wager at least $/€/£4,000.

The best thing to do would be to stick to the slots if you want to complete these wagering requirements because these games (and scratchcards/specialty games) generally count 100% towards completing your wagering requirements. Games like blackjack, All Aces and other table/card games count very little towards completing them. You can always contact the support just to see how much you have left to wager before your bonus cash can be withdrawn.

If you fail to complete the wagering requirements, or if you just get fed up trying, you can just forfeit the bonus cash and you will be left with your original deposit amount. Completing wagering requirements can be a bit of a nightmare, but if you manage to do so with plenty of money left over, the remaining cash will be yours to spend as you please.
