Give your gaming account a bonus boost

Give your gaming account a bonus boost

When you first start playing on a new casino site, you’re likely to be tempted by the great bonuses that almost every site offers as a way of wooing new players to deposit their cash there rather than at another site.

But when you’re looking at the different options, make sure to read the terms and conditions that come with each bonus. Some are more restrictive than others, and it’s worth knowing what you’re signing up to rather than just going for what seems like the best deal at first glance.

For instance you can play slots at bgo online casino and get a 200% bonus on your first cash deposit to play slots. This is great if your preference is for playing slots. However, if you’re a table games fan then it’s probably wiser to seek out a bonus that can be used to play table games. Some bonuses can be used for any games, others have gaming restrictions, so you can only use the free money to play certain games. This is fine, as long as you know in advance which games a bonus allows you to play.

Other things to check out in the small print include the time limit on the bonus – you don’t want to squirrel away bonus credit handed out by the casinos and then neglect to use it in time and have it voided. Each casino will have a different time limit on the bonus – double check when you sign up.

You might decide to join a number of different casino sites in order to qualify for the welcome bonuses – this is sometimes known as casino stoozing or casino whoring. There’s nothing to stop you doing this, but it’s not just about the welcome bonus. Sites like to reward their players for loyalty too, and you’ll find that different sites each have their own loyalty reward scheme for regular players. On bgo, you can earn cash back every time you play, and depending on your player level, this can be up to 20% at a time. Other sites award you loyalty points each time you play, which can then accumulate and be cashed in for cash, free spins, or other prizes when you have enough points to do so. So by being loyal to a site, you’ll end up qualifying for more promotions than you would if you played sporadically at a number of sites.

Another thing to know is that not every site will allow you to withdraw the bonus credit. Most do, but only when you have fulfilled wagering requirement. This is usually expressed as a multiple of the bonus and means that you have to play the bonus money through a set number of times before you are entitled to withdraw it. In reality, you’ll probably unlikely to withdraw the bonus but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth having. Instead, use it sensibly, placing small wagers on games where the player return percentages are high, or the progressive jackpot games that could win you a life-changing amount. If you don’t manage to increase the bonus fund, what does it matter? You’ll still have enjoyed some extra playing credit that you wouldn’t have otherwise had.
