Casino Bonuses Explained to Beginners

Stratford Editorial 26th May, 2022   0

Online casino sites became a very popular leisure activity in every part of the world. People have found that it is truly thrilling to wager real money and earn real winnings. But where to start playing? There are specific criteria that you should bear in mind when choosing your first online casino. One of them is casino bonuses. What else spices up your initial experience other than a tasty casino bonus? To understand bonuses, you should at least know their most common types.

1. Welcome Bonus

The bonus that you get when making your first deposit at a casino. It is one of the most simple and frequent types of bonuses. Welcome bonus matches the amount of the first deposit you make and usually makes up 100% of it.

2. Deposit Bonus

If you already know what a welcome bonus is, you will have no problems with understanding deposit bonuses. It is basically the same thing, it’s just larger than the welcome bonus and can be given several times.

3. No Deposit Bonus

What can seem more lucrative than a bonus that doesn’t even require wagering your own money? Lucky for you, this kind of bonus exists and is called “No deposit bonus”. Still, don’t expect to hit the jackpot and instantly withdraw seven-figure win cash. No deposit bonus always comes with specific requirements, and in order to withdraw winnings, you’ll have to bet a certain amount of times with real money.

4. Free spins

Free spins are a bonus limited to one type of casino game — slot machines. They are often offered to either new players or existing players when a new slot machine sees the light of the day. The total number of free spins can easily reach 500 or even more. Same with a no deposit bonus, if you want to cash out your bonus winnings, you’ll usually be required to mage a certain number of spins with real money.

5. Loyalty program

Online casinos not only need to attract new players but to preserve old ones. The vast majority of dependable gambling venues have some kind of loyalty program. As a rule, a player is rewarded when he makes a certain number of value bets (for example, when he bets 10,000 times or $10,000 in total) or when a certain amount of time passes after the registration. The loyalty program turned out to be an excellent tool for keeping old and experienced gamblers on the website.

These were the 5 most popular types of bonuses offered by online casinos. When looking for where to make some spins or play some other games, keep in mind how they work and if there are some tricks to them. We hope our short article has helped you to understand the basics of online gambling.
