Bonuses are Not Free

Date Published: August 26, 2016

Many new players will be drawn to an online casino solely based on the amazing welcome bonus that is being offered. Many casino sites advertise thousands in free money to players who register an account, and those that do not have experience gambling online may fall prey to these tools that are used to attract new players. While casino bonuses can be quite rewarding to the right players, they are often a big surprise to those that are new. Far too many players think they can simply register and collect free money, but there are terms and conditions and much fine print associated with each and every casino bonus that is offered online.

Each casino bonus will usually have a wagering requirement, and this is explained in the terms and conditions. This is how the casino ensures that players will spend money at the site. The wagering requirement will state how much players must bet on qualifying games in order to clear the bonus. If they do not meet these requirements, they will be unable to withdraw any bonus winnings that have been generated. Wagering requirements are often higher for welcome bonuses since these are what will draw players to the site. To find the best bonus, always look at the wagering requirements first and choose the one that has the lowest requirement in place. This may mean accepting a lower paying bonus, but it will be easier to clear the offer and benefit from the rewards.

Since online casinos are trying to make money, they will often limit bonus money to being played on slot games. The reason for this is because the house edge on slots is higher than with table and card games. Players will have to wager more to win and will find the payouts to be less. However, if they wish to collect their payouts from the bonus offer, they will have to play these games to complete the offer.

Casino bonuses may appear attractive, but players need to know everything about them before redeeming. Requirements are in place for almost every offer, from welcome bonuses to ongoing promotions. Always factor the cost of playing the game with the profit potential to deem whether a bonus is worth using when playing online. Not every bonus will be beneficial to players.
