Online Casino Bonus

Online casinos are practically taking over the online gambling world lately. It seems that they have been doing their best to tempt more players to try their luck at online casinos. They have come up with enticing offers to catch a potential player’s attention. One such promotion is offering different types of casino bonuses to get people into playing on their online casinos.

Casino bonuses are offers that are being dished, rather freely I might add, by online casinos. A player receives casino bonus betting money to wager on the several casino games being offered. The amount may differ for different online casinos. Some may give out 25 to 50 dollar bonuses for a minimum bet. There are even some online casinos that can offer a 100 percent match bonus for every deposit that the player makes. This means that if the player deposits $200 in his account, the online casino will match that amount in full, making the player acquire $400 initial betting money on his account, very seductive right? There are also other casinos offering bonuses next to nothing, just to give you a taste of playing online, a couple of wins and more often than not, hooked to play some more later on.

This is not easy money,well not as easy as it sounds anyway. There are certain requirements that you have to follow in order to cash in on your proceeds. Online casinos have put these measures in place to avoid being robbed blind so to speak. One of the usual requirements is that a player should wager at least 25 times the amount of deposit and bonus before being able to cash in. There are some games like baccarat, craps, roulette and sometimes even blackjack that do not count in meeting the required wagering provisions.

Casino bonuses can really attract players into getting started on online betting. Personally its the flashy ads that I find tempting. The bonuses have provided a regular stream of online players which has turned out to be lucrative for the online casinos. Moving on to more shadowy news(for the casinos anyway) some people attempt to take advantage of this offer in order to cash in on casino bonuses. Lets call them ‘bonus hunters’ These players abuse the casino bonus offers by opting to cash in on their winnings after all the betting provisions are met. Of course these actions are not in the interests of casinos and are therefore strictly prohibited. This violates the condition that players may only play for recreational purposes only. Online casinos are always on the lookout for bonus hunters whose promotional privileges are usually revoked when caught.

Online casinos are rather serious about the whole affair so its best to gamble within the confines of the requirements. Refraining from maintaining multiple accounts when playing in an online casino is probably a good idea. Also try not to cash out on your winning before fulfilling the casino’s wagering requirement. A sudden increase in the amount that you bet may make the casino throw a red flag at you. Lastly provide the correct credit information and avoid having irregularities on your credit card. Wrong information will most likely get your casino bonus privilege revoked and at worst get you barred from betting online.
