Claiming casino bonuses

The process for claiming bonus is slightly different for every casino, but the steps below should give you an idea of how to use your extra cash.

  • Register, deposit funds and claim

    After you create a new player account, you will often be invited to claim a bonus at the cashier. If you are an existing player, you will probably receive emails encouraging you to claim bonuses. Regardless, all of a casino’s promotional offers should be accessible from a central promotions page.

    Once you’ve signed up, complete any requirements for crediting a bonus (depositing and entering a code, informing customer support, etc.) and bonus funds should be credited to your account.

  • Meet wagering conditions

    After crediting bonus funds to your balance, you must meet the bonus wagering requirements before you can withdraw any cash.

    If you do not achieve this within the time limit set by the casino, you will lose any bonus funds plus winnings accumulated with those funds.

    Before cashing out, you will usually be asked to produce ID to prove you meet the legal requirements for online gambling in you jurisdiction.

  • Playing with bonus

    Remember, casino bonuses are ‘goodwill gestures', meaning you are not expected to profit from them.

    Think of bonus funds time-limited free-play, letting you enjoy online gambling without having to risk any of your own cash.

    Bonuses usually come in the form of a cash-packet or percentage of your deposit, but can also be free bets or spins for online slots games.

Additional notes

  • You will be asked to provide proof of ID if you attempt to claim two bonuses through separate accounts.
  • If you are suspected of abusing a casino’s bonuses, you may have your account closed and funds confiscated.
