Every player is looking for a good deal when it comes to Casinos bonuses. With so many offers available, on so many websites how can you be sure you are getting the best one? Today we are going to look at just that and help you understand some of the ingredients that make up a bonus to help you decide.
Important things to consider with every Casino Bonus.
Before you claim a casino bonus please remember to check the following in the bonus terms. Any legitimate Casino should make these very easy to find.
Wagering requirements: This is the number of times you need to bet before the winnings become unlocked and you will no longer be playing with bonus funds. This requires the player to bet the amount of the bonus, deposit or both. So for example,
- A 100% matching on a £/€/$25 deposit.
- and the wagering is 25 times on the deposited amount and the bonus amount
Using these terms as a guide than the wagering will be as follows.( 50(deposit + bonus) x 25 (wagering)= 1250) this means you will have to bet a total of £/€/$1250 before the bonus is finished.
Max Cashout: Some bonuses might have a max cashout term. This is a limit on the amount you can withdraw from a bonus including the amount you have deposited.
Restricted games/slots: Some Casinos have limits on the games you can play with bonus funds. Some games might also have different contributions to the wagering requirements and some might even be restricted so that you cannot play them at all when using bonus funds.
As you might have guessed the best bonuses have no max cashout, little to no wagering and hardly any restrictions on the games you can play.
Types of casino bonuses
By far the most common of all the casino bonuses. A welcome bonus is offered with a first deposit and will typically double the amount deposited. These bonuses will most likely have wagering requirements and may or may not have a max cashout.
No Deposit bonus
When signing up to an online casino you may be offered a no deposit bonus before you decided to play. This often comes in the form of free spins and will have a max cashout. The wagering requirements will only be on the amount you have won from the free spins.
Refund on losses
This will be a certain % of losses on a particular game over a certain number of rounds they are not as common as the bonus mentioned above and are usually associated with live casino games such as roulette or blackjack.
Every casino has a different interpretation of cashback. At TradaCasino, for example, our cashback bonus has no wagering its added as you play and has no restrictions on the amount you can withdraw.
Competitions / Tournaments
Some game providers run competitions such as leaderboards or tournaments. They will usually have a prize fund and like for example, our Playson spring supreme giveaway. All of these types of bonuses are completely wager free and will require you to agree to the terms within the game before you can take part.
So what should I look out for?
When deciding on the best casino bonus you shouldn’t look at how big the bonus is or how many spins but rather the restrictions on the bonuses themselves. Another important factor is what games you play with them and will you be restricted from playing them?
Remember the most important thing to consider when playing at a casino is to stick to a limit that you are comfortable with. Gambling should only be considered a bit of fun and never a way of making or earning money. If you claim a bonus and do not win never try and chase the losses.
