How do online casinos entice new players to sign-up and retain their already existing
customer base? Well, they provide certain bonuses and incentives. For instance, there
are some casinos that would allow you to play their games without an initial deposit (via
free games) and there are also those that would provide you with a cashback
immediately after you sign up.
No matter what bonuses you may get from these institutions, how can you best spend
them in the right way?
Today, I am going to tell you how to do just that.
The Different Types of Bonuses
Before I tell you how you should spend your bonuses, it is important for you to know the
usual bonuses that online casinos provide you. In this section, I will go over the different
types of bonuses so that you will be aware of them.
1. No Deposit
This is one of the most common bonuses that you can see online casinos provide their
new and existing players. Basically, this is where you do not need to make an initial
deposit before you can start playing their games.
Typically, you will be asked to make an initial deposit as a way of protecting the
business. But, since you are giving them your credit card information anyway, they will
provide you with this bonus.
Keep in mind that although most online casinos provide you with this, not all of them do.
2. Deposit Bonus
As I’ve said previously, there are casinos that would require you to make an initial
deposit. But the good thing is that they will somehow much or even surpass that deposit
to entice you to start playing (and keep on playing at that).
The deposit bonus is also one of the most common bonuses that you can see online
casinos make. This is where they will either match your initial deposit or they impose
percentage multipliers which would give you even more money to start with.
If they would match your initial deposit, that is an equal 1 to 1 ratio. So, if you’ve made a
$500 initial deposit, the casino will match the same amount as well.
If they provide the percentage multiplier, they would usually state something like they
would give you 200% of your deposit. So, if you’ve made a $500 deposit, that will
essentially become $1,000.
3. Free Spin Bonus
This only applies to online slot machines. As the name implies, the casino is going to
provide you with free spins, even if you’ve made an initial deposit or not.
How You Should Use Your Bonus
Now that we’ve come to the part that you’ve all been waiting for. Let’s assume that you
got a no-deposit bonus. When you get this, consume all of your free games first before
making a deposit.
For deposit bonuses, find out how much money you will be given on your deposit and
try to deposit as much money as you can.
For free spins, do the same for no-deposit bonuses.
Always Read the Fine Print
When you are going to indulge in your bonuses, be sure to read the fine print. There are
important terms and conditions that you need to be aware of. For instance, you might
not be able to spend all of your free spins in just one day. Or perhaps, you are not
allowed to withdraw your potential winnings if you haven’t made an initial deposit first.
