When women are shopping they all look at the prices of the clothes and the discount that is offered. We all know the picture of the lady of the house, coming home and with unconcealed proud in her voice telling that the -still expensive shirt- was discounted and impossible to leave behind. We all like to get something when we buy stuff or hire a service. Well, whatever the discount or gift is, at the end we pay good money and that’s it! But the providers of our games have developed something that is really clever: the online casino deposit bonuses. These are bonuses with a few pitfalls and by knowing them you will have more profit from your online casino deposit bonuses without chagrin because you did not read the fine print in the chapter Terms & Conditions of your favorite provider. In the chapter ‘Bonus wagering requirements’ you can read a lot about the pitfalls we know, but the main points thereof will be repeated later in this article.
Online casino deposit bonuses are in fact a kind of rewards to say thank you that you have become a new customer in the first place, that you opened an account in the second place and that you deposited money in that account in the third place. That’s all you need to profit from online casino deposit bonuses as long as you can hold up a position as active player. There are a number of bonuses and they have nice names, but over all we recognize the welcome bonus and the follow-up or re-deposit bonus. We are promoting three online casinos and the bonuses of all three are described on separate pages: the 888 Casino bonuses, the Spin Palace Casino bonuses and the Party Casino bonuses. If you have plans to open an account at one of these online casinos, we advise you to read the relevant article about their bonuses. And we also advise to read the Terms & Conditions that will learn you how the system of the online casino deposit bonuses works. Never start a relationship with an online casino just based on the advertisement at the front page. We’ll explain. 888 Casino is calling for $1400 welcome premium, Party Casino even more $3000 as a welcome bonus and Spin Palace Casino is acting poor with only $1000. Correct? Not at all. None of these are giving the online casino deposit bonuses as announced on the front page. They all scatter amounts that can be reached at the maximum, but you have to do a lot more than making a first deposit. The real first deposit bonus at Spin Palace is $150, at 888 Casino it is $200 and at Party Casino it is $200 when you play casino games, it can be $500 when you play Roulette and it can be $750 when you play slots, but that is for the first four deposits, not just one. You see immediately that online casino deposit bonuses have a complex character. The only thing that is very clear and undisputable is that you have to deposit money to get some bonus money. And that bonus money will be granted afterwards when you have shown that you are really playing with your own money, for when everybody is only playing with bonus money the online casino will be broke in no time.
Bonus money is extra and a nice incentive but you have to wager it a number of times (up to twenty times we have seen) till it is vanished (who cares, it was for free) or till the prescribed number of wagers are reached. Only then the bonus money will be adjusted to your account as real money, including the winnings that you gained with it. What you also need to know is that the welcome bonus and all re-deposit bonuses are never fixed amounts but always in line with the amount of your deposit and there is always a minimum for the deposit in charge. Is there a maximum as well? Most of the times there is, but that varies from one casino to another and also depends on the chosen payment option for the transfer. But maximum on the deposit or not, there will certainly be a maximum on the bonus money. So when you believe that there is a pot with gold at the end of the rainbow when you start playing in an online casino: there is none, but of course when you don’t bet you can never win. Being aware of the rules and the terms & conditions of your online casino will avoid a lot of questions and complaints. It’s the same when you install an air conditioner, you better read the manual before pushing all the buttons, then screaming that the thing does not work.
Maybe it looks that we are a bit skeptical about online casino bonuses but we are certainly not. On the contrary, we like them a lot, but we know all about them and will never have the feeling that we are tricked. When you have an account at an online casino and some online casino deposit bonuses or whatever other bonuses are offered, read the conditions carefully. When the standard line ‘Terms & Conditions apply’ is adjusted to the offer, you better know what that means. Most of the complaints about online casinos, small and great both, is a lack of transparency when it is about online casino deposit bonuses or other incentives. We agree on everybody that is saying that it should be more simple, but in business there are no simple rules. The conditions clearly state what you can expect when making a certain deposit and what you will have in return. Also the rules for Loyalty schemes or VIP programs are meticulously scheduled in the terms & conditions, so that you will not meet any unpleasant surprise. If you have any questions about online casino deposit bonuses of your own provider, don’t hesitate to contact them, they will be happy to answer them.
