For many players the bonuses and promotions on offer are a huge selling point for any online casino, but the language around them came often be complicated for new players and understanding exactly what is needed isn’t always clear when it comes to wagering bonuses, and other types of bonuses too – whether it’s figuring out how to claim the bonus, figuring out the terms and conditions, or just learning how to find the best possible bonuses, what is it that’s needed to know to get the most benefit?
How to claim the bonus – Different casinos have a number of different ways to redeem any bonuses on offer but they tend to be very similar and very straight forward too – many are directly added to any balance on the site if the pre-requirements are met, and others simply require players to enter a bonus code on a site to get the bonus – this bonus code can sometimes be hidden on a promotion page or within the terms and conditions, but keeping an eye out for them will ensure they’re much easier to spot. Some sites will require players to contact them or do some task before hand to get the bonus, but these sites are best avoided in favour of the many that offer bonus codes just for joining and playing.
Wagering requirements and playthrough requirement – Often different language is used for this, but ultimately this all means the same thing – some players believe that claiming a bonus is simply entering a code, getting the money, and it’s available for withdrawal, but that’s just giving away free money and not in the casinos interest. Wagering requirements are often clearly displayed on the promotion but sometimes can be hidden in the fine print and so certainly worth reading – in short it just means that a certain amount needs to be wagered before the bonus can be claimed in its entirety – for example, if a site uses a 30x wagering requirement and the bonus is for £50, the total wager required to fulfil the bonus requirement would be 30*50 for a cumulative wager of £1,500 needed. It may seem steep for some, but often the bonuses are worth it.
Exploring different types of bonus – Looking at the promotion pages for different sites will often give a full look at the different types of bonuses on offer, whether this be the most known for welcome bonuses and offers, loyalty bonuses that reward repeat play, or additional bonuses tacked on like free spins too. Taking advantage of all of the bonuses on offer can lead to some big returns for dedicated players, so it’s certainly worth exploring all of the options available.
