Online casinos offer players, both new and returning, several
incentives to play and they do so in the form of bonuses. Casino
bonus structures vary widely depending on the type of casino.
Microgaming Casinos offer Match Deposits and some even offer No
Deposit Bonuses to their new players. When collecting a bonus
at a Microgaming Casino, you are sometimes required to send an
email to the casino with your purchase amount and they will manually
add your bonus. In some Microgaming Casinos, your bonus is added
instantly. With Playtech Casinos, you can collect Match Bonuses
at the time of your first purchase and these are added instantly
to your casino account. RTG has a system in place that is a little
different from most of the other online casinos. RTG Casinos offers
a lot of free casino cash with no deposit required and on top
of that you can collect a huge Purchase Bonuses, sometimes equaling
as much 999% of your purchase. RTG Casinos give out bonus coupons
that you redeem in the casino cashier by typing in the coupon
code and selecting “Redeem”.
Most of these are added immediately and each time you use these
coupons, you must enter the coupon code before you make your purchase.
For the sake of their customers, the casinos are very forgiving
when it comes to bonus redemption. If you get the order wrong
and make the deposit first, just email or call their customer
support and they will take care of it and give you the bonus manually.
With Odds On as well as most of the rest of the online casinos
out there, you just make your purchase then email the casino to
collect your bonus.
All casinos require that you meet a minimum wagering requirement
before requesting a cash out, when using bonuses. The wagering
requirements vary greatly and can be as little as 4 times the
amount of the purchase plus bonus, to 20 times the amount of the
purchase plus bonus. For instance, if you deposit $100 and collect
a $100 bonus, you may be required to wager 10 x $100 for your
deposit, plus 10 x $100 for the bonus. Be sure to read all the
terms and conditions for any casino you play at as most will restrict
the games that you are allowed to play to meet your wagering requirements.
These conditions are not always clear especially to the new player.
If you have any questions, or can't locate the wagering requirements
for a particular casino, don't hesitate to contact customer support
and ask exactly what the terms are. If you wager on a game or
games that are not allowed, you will not be allowed to cash out,
and in some cases, your account balance will be zeroed out.
Cashing out when playing on a casino bonus also depends on the
casino, but in general, after you've met the wagering requirements,
you are free to cash out what is left in your account. In some
cases, the casinos treat the bonus as a 'sticky' which means that
you can not cash out the amount of the bonus, but are free to
cash out anything above that amount.
