  • 4. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry Secrets Chapter 1: What Are Casino Bonuses and Why Do Casinos Offer Them?O nline casino bonuses are the casinos way of enticing new players to join. Most offer “free money” – sometimes it’s a $10 or $15 chip (which seems reasonable) and sometimes the offer is for something outrageous like $3000 free.We all know there is no such thing as a free lunch.That doesn’t mean that if you’re a smart shopper, you can’t work the system and getthe most for your money!Through this eBook, we’ll help you do exactly that.As a consumer, it’s not always very easy making sense of the bonus offers. This isespecially true if you’re used to playing at land-based casinos, which offer verydifferent promotions and deals than online casinos do.This eBook will explain absolutely everything about casino bonuses. It’s geared fornovice players and veteran players alike. After reading this eBook, you will become smarter online casino consumer. We’ll explain how online casino bonuses work, what’s in it for the casino to offer you these bonuses, how you can be a savvy bonus shopper and get the most for every dollar you spend – without getting screwed over by the casinos!! Let’s get started.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 3 of 37
  • 5. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsThe Online Casino IndustryThe online casino games industry is all about competition, not for players, but for thecasinos themselves. The market is saturated with so many different online casinos thateach casino has to provide an attractive offer to entice you to join.The good news – as a player, you get to choose the best bonus out there.The bad news – it’s not always clear what exactly that “best bonus” is.(But that’s where we come in – and if you’ve downloaded this eBook It means that ina few short minutes, you’ll be able to decipher for yourself so you’re already wayahead of the game!!!)Just the same as with land-based casinos, where eachcasino has different incentives(free chips, meal vouchers,tickets and attractions) to getyou to stay with them, in theonline world, it’s all about casinobonus offers because cash is theeasiest thing for casinos to offeryou – hands down.As we talked about earlier, onlinecasino bonuses are an incentiveused by casinos to encourageplayers to spend time and moneyon their website. Similar to acoupon or discount code that youwould receive at a store, casinobonuses give you the opportunityto play with the casinos’ own cash,within certain rules and limitations.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 4 of 37
  • 6. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsThese bonuses have become so standard in the industry that it is unlikely that you willland on a site without some sort of bonus offer blinking boldly at you from across thescreen.With the massive variety of bonuses all over the web, it is easy to get confused andfeel overwhelmed. Just as casinos have become wise to the fact that they have tooffer a selection of bonuses to attract players, it is important that you educate yourselfabout what is really being made available to you. Understanding the various types ofbonuses and their conditions will enable you to make the best choices on where andhow to play.Written by industry experts, this guide will help you decipher the different types ofbonuses and wagering requirements, ensuring that you become a more informed,skilled and profitable player!www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 5 of 37
  • 7. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry Secrets Chapter 2: Is Bonus Money Real Cash?B efore we get into the different types of bonuses, the most important point to clarify when it comes to online casino bonuses is – can you cash them out?What do we mean?Basically, there are two types of bonuses – ones you can cash out and ones you can’tcash out.All bonuses, regardless of type and size, are divided into two categories – cashable ornon-cashable.Non-cashable bonuses, also called “sticky” or “phantom” bonuses, are ones thatcannot be exchanged for real cash. Essentially, a bonus is like a credit and if thebonus is labeled as non-cashable, you can use the credits to play the games, but itwill not be considered cash when you are ready to withdraw. If you want to make awithdrawal from the casino, you will only be allowed to redeem your winnings andyour initial deposit, not the bonus amount.This type of bonus is often labeled as for wagering only in the terms and conditionssection.Cashable bonuses are the opposite and after meeting thewagering requirements, they count towards your overallwinnings and can be withdrawn, making them more attractive.In this case, it is very important to read the terms andconditions closely to see if the bonus being offered iscashable or not and determine which is the right one for you.In the terms and conditions section on a website, youare likely to see something along these lines in relation toNon-Cashable Bonuses:www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 6 of 37
  • 8. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsHere is an example:For a Cashable Bonus, you may see something like this:Beware!!When you deposit, and the casino awards you a bonus, you will always play FIRST withyour own money. If you lose your money, then you start playing with the bonus money.Therefore, if you deposit $100, receive $100 in bonus money from the casino (a 100%match bonus) and you lose $100, you won’t be able to cashout the remaining $100in your account if the bonus is non-cashable (and at that point, even if it is cashable,that casino will tell you that you’ll have to play in order to meet the wageringrequirements for cashout).(Of course, this is not the case with a no-deposit bonus, which is why the wageringrequirements for cashout on a no-deposit bonus are usually much more strict thandeposit bonuses.)This is standard for all online casinos and in fact, it’s pretty fair. Otherwise, peoplewould be able to cashout the free money. The point of the bonus is to help you win,it’s not free money. That said, it’s important to understand how bonuses work so you can: 1. Decide for yourself if you want to play with bonuses 2. Know what to expect and don’t end up feeling cheated or frustrated because the fine print was too confusingNow that you’ve got the basics down on what casino bonuses actually are (andwhat they aren’t), let’s learn about the different types of bonuses so you canunderstand which ones are best for you, where you can find them and what pitfalls toavoid when shopping around for the best online casino bonus deal.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 7 of 37
  • 9. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry Secrets Chapter 3: Different Types of Casino Bonuses Deposit and No Deposit BonusesT here are different types of online casino bonuses and each offers its own unique advantages and conditions. In thissection, we’ll give you an in depth explanation of the differenttypes of bonuses.Here, we break down bonuses into two main categories: nodeposit bonuses and deposit bonuses. As the name implies, a no deposit bonus or a“free chip offer” is when the online casino awards you with a bonus before youdeposit funds into your account.A deposit bonus is a bonus that the casino awards you when you buy-in (i.e., depositfunds).Keep in mind that each bonus comes with its own terms and conditions that vary ateach casino. It is important to read and understand these fully before playing withany bonus. In general, these limitations are typically wagering requirements –meaning that you are required to wager a certain amount of money before you areallowed to withdraw the bonus. We will discuss wagering requirements in more detailbelow and in the following chapters.No Deposit BonusesNo Deposit Bonus 1: Free ChipsHands-down, the most popular casino bonus is the no-deposit bonus. It’s free money.It’s not unconditional free money and you can’t cash it out and go buy a cup of coffee,but it is money that you can use and if you win, the money you win is yours to keep.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 8 of 37
  • 10. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsPretty great!Now, where the casinos “get you” is with the requirements you must meet in order tocash out the money you win with the bonus. That’s a whole chapter onto itself. We’llget there in a few minutes.Heres an example:Q. Why does the casino offer you free chips?A. Similar to land-based casinos, it’s in the casinos interest to get you “in the door”. What better way to do that then with a free gift?You don’t owe the casino anything – and it’s the best way to really check out theirgoods as you can play any real money game you want and really feel theexcitement of playing with REAL money as opposed to checking out the games inthe fun/demo mode of the online casino.So, the casino will front the money for you initially from its own bank, in the hopesthat you will spend your own money with them down the line. Casinos that canreally “put their money where their mouths are” are the ones that offer the free chipdeals. They’re confident that once you play their games, you’ll want to come backfor more.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 9 of 37
  • 11. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry Secrets While this is the case, new casinos also offer the no deposit bonus in an attempt to prove that their product and services are just as fantastic as the older more established casinos. No deposit bonuses usually come as a cash bonus and can range anywhere from $5 to $150. Like other bonuses, the no deposit bonus can be used to play most games at an online casino, but be aware that not all games will count towards the wagering requirements and there are strict terms and conditions associated with them.Make sure to read “Chapter 4: Know what you are getting yourself into: Terms andConditions”.If you decide to take the bonus, you will typically download the casino software,register your account as a real money player and type in a code (unless you comefrom a special link and the money is automatically credited to your account).Some casinos will ask you to put in your credit card information.Q. Is it okay to put in your credit card information at a casino that you’re not necessarily sure you actually want to spend money at?A. YES. Absolutely.Online casinos are not allowed to accept minors. The way that they deter minors isby asking all players to register their credit card details as by definition, if you havea credit card in your name, you are above the age of 18.This way, the casino is able to verify that you are indeed over 18. By law, theycannot charge your card unless authorized.Sometimes an online casino will require that you make your first deposit beforeyou’re eligible to cash out the funds you’ve won from a no deposit bonus.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 10 of 37
  • 12. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry Secrets TIP: If you take a no deposit bonus and are asked by the casino to make your first deposit before being eligible to cashout your winnings – FOREGO the first deposit bonus because otherwise you’ll need to meet another set of wagering requirements on the match deposit bonus you receive with your first deposit.You can do this by speaking directly with an online casino customer servicerepresentative and asking them to shut off bonuses. (P.S. you can always turn onthe bonus function later.) There is no way to do this yourself – you’ll need to contactcustomer support.No Deposit Bonus 2: Free Play BonusesThere are two main types of Free Play Bonuses.1. Free Time2. Free Spin for Slots1. Free Time BonusesFree Time Free Play Bonuses can be a great way to start off. First, you’re able to really tryout the casino and play the different games. It’s better than playing in the free/demoversion of the casino because you actually have a chance to win something!These bonuses allow you to play at a casino for a specific amount of time with a setamount of money and keep your winnings. The allotted time will vary at each casino.As an example, a casino will give you a set amount of $500 and one hour to try andwin as much as possible, up to a limit of $800. When the hour is over, whatever youhave won above the $500 comes back to you in the form of cash in your account. Aswith any bonus, there will most likely be a cashout requirement.As we mentioned earlier, often times casinos will require that you make a firstdeposit before being able to cashout the money you win on a no deposit bonuses –this is standard.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 11 of 37
  • 13. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsHere is an example:2. Free Spin Bonuses - SlotsSlots are one of the more popular online casino games out there so there are somecasinos that create extra bonuses targeted at slot players specifically.These bonuses are known as free spin bonuses and come as a time-bound or money-bound bonus. A time-bound bonus is a bonus that you can use within a certainamount of time. A free spin bonus is a bonus that consists of a certain number of freespins (these games apply to slot games). Money-bound free-spin bonuses allow youto play a slot game for free up to a certain monetary limit.Here is an example:www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 12 of 37
  • 14. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsDeposit BonusesWelcome Bonus/Sign-Up Bonus/New Player BonusesJust as the name implies, the Welcome Bonus, also sometimes known as a Sign-UpBonus or New Player Bonus, is given to customers who are playing at a casino for thefirst time. The casino’s goal is to attract new players so this bonus is usually one of thebest deals around, and for this reason, is offered on a one-time basis.Welcome bonuses are match bonuses.A match bonus, true to its name, is a bonus offered by the casino based upon theamount of money you deposit. The casino matches your deposit by a certainpercentage, up to a certain amount of money (depending upon the deal). The bottom line? What you want to look for is a high percentage and a high maximum match amount. 100% = The casino matches your deposit dollar for dollar. 200% = The casino matches your deposit with 2 dollars for every 1 dollar you spend 300% = The casino matches your deposit with 3 dollars for every 1 dollar you spend and so forth...The “up to” amount is the maximum bonus amount that the casino will offer you. Thisamount helps you understand the exact amount of money you need to deposit inorder to get the maximum bonus amount from the casino.The casino could offer a 50% match bonus up to $200, which would mean that youare eligible for 50 cents on every dollar you deposit. So if you deposit $100, you willreceive a $50 match bonus, up to the maximum allowable bonus amount. Keep inmind that if you want to take advantage of the full bonus amount and grab the entire$200 from the casino, you’ll have to deposit $400.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 13 of 37
  • 15. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsLet’s take a look at a real-life example:Welcome Bonus: 100% match up to $100Let’s start by saying that this is a very clear and transparent advertisement. Instead ofthe flashy ads promising thousands of free bonus dollars with no real commitment,this ad clearly states that this is a casino match bonus and that you will receive abonus upon your first chip purchase.We like transparent, easy to understand ads!Now, let’s break it down.For this bonus, 100% match up to $500, you’ll need to deposit $500 to get themaximum bonus.When you deposit $500, you’ll get to start playing with $1000 in your account.On one hand, you want to get the most for your money. On the other hand, do youreally want to deposit $500 at a casino you’ve never really played at before?If you deposit less, you’ll still be matched dollar for dollar but as we established above,there are match bonuses higher than 100% so you might want to keep looking.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 14 of 37
  • 16. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsLet’s take it a step further. What about those outrageous offers like ‘$3000 Free’ or‘$1000 Free’!Is bigger really better? MYTH: The best strategy here is to look for the largest match bonus you can find at each casino. FACT: When it comes to welcome bonuses, bigger is not always better! Most new players assume that a banner ad flashing “$1000 Free Bonus!” means that upon signing up to a new casino, you’ll find $1000 worth of free chips waiting in your account. The reality, however, is a bit different.First, let’s get one thing straight. A Welcome Bonus/New Player Bonus/First DepositBonus is a bonus the casino will give you only upon making your first deposit as a newplayer. This means that you can’t receive this bonus if you’ve had an account in thepast. This rule applies to one account per household. The casino will check based onyour computer’s IP address, even if you try to use a different name you’ll run intoproblems when you deposit and expect to see your first match bonus.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 15 of 37
  • 17. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsBe aware!Casino’s get creative when it comes to the fine print of the welcome bonus. Thehuge number is always broken down into separate deposits.Q. The good news?A. The casino will award you with a match bonus each time you deposit.Q. The bad news?A. You’ll have to spend a lot of money in order to actually get the “maximum” bonus amount (aka the huge number advertised as ‘free’).Each separate section is a match bonus (i.e., deposit X amount and the casino willmatch your deposit by X% up to X.) The “up to X” is considered as part of the bonus.Confused? Don’t worry. You’re not alone. Casino bonuses are extremely confusing.Let’s call a spade a spade; the goal of the casino is to lead you on and confuse youterribly. However, if you’ve come this far and you’ve gotten your hands on this e-book, you’ve already got one up on ‘em!Moving along... let’s break it down with some examples: Casino X offers a $1000 Welcome Bonus. The bonus itself is made up of 4 bonuses. First bonus: 100% match up to $300The breakdown: This is a great bonus. The casino will double your first depositamount up to $300. To get the maximum amount of bonus money from the casino(the full $300), you’ll need to deposit $300. Second bonus: 50% up to $200The breakdown: This is a so-so bonus. The casino will only match your bonus by halfthe deposit amount. In order to get the maximum amount of bonus money from thecasino ($200), you’ll need to deposit $400.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 16 of 37
  • 18. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry Secrets Third bonus: 25% up to $250 Fourth bonus: 25% up to $250The breakdown: These bonuses are pretty weak considering that you can just makea deposit at another casino and easily grab a higher deposit bonus than a lousy 25%.Plus, to get the full amount of bonus money from the casino for each deposit, you’llneed to deposit $1000 each time. So, when you add it up - in order to get the full $1000 Welcome Bonus from the casino, you need to actually deposit $300 + $400 + $1000 + $1000 = $2700. $2700 in order to get $1000 in free cash? Hmmm... Not such a great deal on second thought.There’s no such thing as a free lunch, folks!Other important things to consider are the wageringrequirement terms for cashout, deposit methodsaccepted, the quality of the casino and cashoutrestrictions.The wagering requirements should be low and thecasino should be reasonable when it comes to limitinggames that don’t count towards meeting the wageringrequirements. (Read more about wageringrequirements in the section below.)Check that you can deposit at the casino in question with the payment method ofyour choice. Some limit you to just a few third party payment providers that chargehigh commissions on transactions.Other than that, make sure that the casino is a legitimate business. The casinoshould run on software that’s licensed and regulated and they should have thedocumentation visible on their website to back it up. Another sign that the casino isnot reputable is if they do not share a mailing address that each casino by law mustprovide its customers.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 17 of 37
  • 19. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsNot sure? Ask their customer support representative. (Note: If you can’t reach acustomer support representative within 5 minutes, find another casino as this is a suresign that the casino is not well run.) ATTENTION: In this section, we have gone into detail explaining exactly how a match bonus works. Welcome bonuses are deposit match bonuses but they’re not the only type of deposit match bonus. In fact, most bonuses are match deposit bonuses – we’ll talk about them here.2nd Deposit BonusesSometimes, things don’t always go the way you want or expect when you areplaying. If you lost money with a Welcome Bonus, a 2nd Deposit Bonus is a chance totry again.Casinos offer this bonus as a means of keeping you playing with them. Whenscanning a new casino’s bonus page, check to see if this type of bonus is availableas it is can serve as a “safety net” if you lose out on your first bonus.As discussed above, an online casino welcome bonus usually is made up of the firstfew deposit bonuses but check to make sure that you’re getting more than just aone-off deal.Here is an example:www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 18 of 37
  • 20. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsLoyalty BonusesSo you’ve been playing at a casino on a number of occasions and find theexperience to be enjoyable, fun and best of all – profitable! Since you are spendingyour money at the casino, why shouldn’t they give you something back?Well don’t worry folks, they do!!Loyalty Bonuses were created to keep happy players happy and coming back formore (and not going to a competing brand).Loyalty bonuses can come in all different denominations and essentially are relatedto how loyal the casino sees you. TIP: How can you get on the “loyal” or “VIP” player list? The casino considers a loyal player one who plays a lot and deposits a lot.Even if you don’t deposit a lot of money but you deposit consistently, the casinounderstand it as a sign that you’re not depositing/playing elsewhere.It’s a great long-term strategy investment because the more loyal you are, the betterthe bonuses are. Also, loyalty perks range beyond just cash bonuses. First, high levelloyalty bonuses are usually cashable meaning you CAN cash them out withouthaving to meet wagering requirements.Second, players with loyalty/VIP status are able to get their earnings quickly (becausethe casino rushes the processing time). Third (but not least of all), these players areawarded with a personal account manager whose job it is to make sure you’re ahappy player (translation: will give you lots of free chips, cash and even actualmerchandise like electronics, vacations, cars, shopping sprees, etc.).www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 19 of 37
  • 21. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsBottom line? It pays to be loyal to a casino that you like.Here is an example:High Roller BonusesAll online casinos want to ‘catch a whale’ (a.k.a High Roller) as they typically spend a lotof money. Even though they may be fewer in numbers than the regular players theyessentially contribute more to the overall revenue of a casino. Thus, High Roller Bonusesare geared towards players who deposit large amounts of money from the start. In orderto receive these bonuses, you must initially deposit typically $5000 or more to qualify.High rollers are automatically considered to be VIP players and are immediatelyflagged and entered into the casino’s loyalty program.In return for spending big, casinos will offer great perks, extra bonuses and first-classservice for these players. Everything from comp points and luxury gifts, including freehotel accommodation at 5-star hotels, free tickets to various concerts or sportingevents, or free entry to some big tournaments.As a VIP, it will be easier to deposit and more importantly, withdraw from the casinoaccount. Every high stakes player will have their own dedicated casinorepresentative whose job is to help them solve any problems. More than that, if anyquestions or technical difficulties appear while playing, they will get expedited helpfrom Customer Support.High Roller bonus can (but not always) exceed the match bonus percentage offeredto regular players. The best part of the High Roller bonus is that the maximum bonusamount received per initial deposit is dramatically higher.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 20 of 37
  • 22. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsHere is an example:Reload BonusesObviously, casinos want existing players to come back as often as possible andspend large amounts of cash with them. Therefore, they offer Reload Bonuses as away to encourage you to keep your accounts open, even if you have not beenparticularly successful in your playing.Reload Bonuses give you the opportunity to maximize your bonus over a set period oftime. Similar to Welcome Bonuses, they are offered as a match, but are usually lessthan a 100%.Reload Bonuses are typically good for deposits made during one playing day.However, you will find that most casinos do not offer the opportunity to take a reloadbonus on all deposits. Note that in general, a casino will limit the Reload Bonuses tothe first deposit made that week or a number of deposits made in a month.Another possibility might be that a casino will spread their Reload Bonus offersthroughout a week. You could see a casino could offer a 30% Reload Bonus on firstdeposits made on Monday, a 60% Reload Bonus on first deposits made onWednesday and 100% on Saturday.Review the promotion pages at each casino you are playing at carefully to determinewhat strategically makes the most sense for your playing style.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 21 of 37
  • 23. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsHere is an example:Weekly/Monthly BonusesWeekly and Monthly bonuses are another way for a casino to entice you to keepcoming back. As the name implies, you will only be able to take advantage of thesebonus offers during a specific time period designated by the casino.Similar to match bonuses, these bonuses entitle you to receive a specifiedpercentage amount up to a maximum specified amount. If you find a casino thatyou like to play at, Weekly/Monthly bonuses can be a nice addition to your bank rollbecause they reward you for your loyalty.Although Weekly/Monthly bonuses are not offered at all casinos, they are quitecommon. Look for casinos that change up their Weekly/Monthly bonuses all the time,implying a level of innovation on their part as well as an investment in their customers.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 22 of 37
  • 24. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsHere is an example:Referral BonusesIf you really like playing at a casino and you want to spread the love, you can let afriend or family member know about your experience and encourage them to registeras well. If they take your advice, you would be eligible for a Referral Bonus.When involving other people in your casino playing, sometimes things can get tricky.In order to avoid any mistakes and to ensure that you receive your bonus, instructyour friend or family member to use your name in the referral box when they sign-upso that you are credited with the bonus.Referral Bonuses are given as flat amounts or they can be match bonuses based ona certain percentage of what your friend or family member deposits.Like other bonuses, there are likely wagering requirements attached, so make sure tofollow the terms and conditions closely. Once you have met these stipulations, youwill be credited.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 23 of 37
  • 25. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsHere is an example:Payment/Banking Method BonusesIf you have ever seen a restaurant with a sign outside that says “Cash Only,” then youare aware that business owners usually prefer to take payment in other forms thancredit cards.Credit card companies can mean hassles, fees and headaches. In the online casinoworld, this is one reason that Payment or Banking Method Bonuses are offered.Additionally, because many governments across the world have strict rules relating toonline casinos, they require a bank to take extra care when receiving a request for anonline casino transaction, slowing down the process.Payment/Banking Method Bonuses reward you for using another form of payment for adeposit besides a credit card. This can include NETeller, Citadel or wire transfer, asexamples.This bonus usually comes as a percentage of your deposit and in addition to otherbonuses you are using.So, if you deposited $50 and you took a Welcome Bonus that gave you a 100% match,you would have $100 to play with. If you also took a Payment/Banking Method Bonusthat gave you a 20% bonus on top of this, you would have $120 to play with.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 24 of 37

  • 27. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry Secrets Chapter 4: Know What Youre Getting Into: Terms and Conditions Wagering RequirementsW henever you take a bonus, there is a Wagering Requirement (WR)attached. This means that in order tocashout any of your winnings, you need towager a certain number of times, asspecified in the terms and conditionsattached to the bonus.Since the casino is giving away “freemoney” through the bonus, a WR is a wayfor them to manage and offset their risk andensure that a certain number ofguaranteed bets are placed.Wagers are bets. Wagering requirements are centered around wagers.In short, you need to BET a certain amount of money to cash out - you dont need toSPEND a certain amount of money.This is something that most people confuse.When taking any bonus, it is important to look at the wagering requirements so thatyou fully understand what you are committing to when you take the bonus. Ingeneral, the larger the bonus amount, the more likely there is a higher wageringrequirement attached.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 26 of 37
  • 28. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsHow are wagering requirements determined?Wagering Requirements are calculated based on the bonus amount or the bonusplus deposit amount. (Bonus + Deposit) x (a number specified by the casino) = Wagering RequirementThe number will usually range between 15 for less strict bonuses and up to 40 formore strict bonuses, depending on the casino. Example: If you were to make a deposit of $100 and take a 100% Match Bonus with a Wagering Requirement of 25, it would look like this: Wagering Requirement = $100 + $100 x 25 = 5,000 So you would have to bet a value of $5,000 before being able to cashout.Are the WRs the same for all games?No. Not only are there different Wagering Requirements attached to different bonuses,the WR can change based on the game. Typically, when you see a WR, it will be for thelowest WR applicable, generally for Slots and Keno. Other games, are a percentage ofthe WR, and may not count at all or count very little towards meeting the requirements.These percentages vary between casinos and throughout the industry, therefore youshould look closely at the terms and conditions and do the math.Here is a chart example of the breakdown of what you may come across in terms ofhow much certain games can fulfill the Wagering Requirements:www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 27 of 37

Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsThese are typical examples of what you would find on an online casino bonus pageand are taken from two different casinos:Violating Terms and ConditionsIf you have read through this guide, by now you should know the importance ofpaying close attention to the terms and conditions attached to all bonuses.

  • 31. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry SecretsThe lesson here is that you should only be playing the games that the casinospecifically says apply to the bonus, otherwise you won’t be able to cash out yourwinnings (you’ll have to play one of the “allowed” games and might risk wiping outyour winnings).Max CashoutsSo you just won $1,000 playing Slotsand another $1,500 playing Blackjack.You are feeling great about yourselfand are already picturing what youare going to buy with the extra cash inyour pocket. You are ready to collectyour winnings and hit the stores, butnot so fast...The casino you played at might havea max cashout.Many casinos have maximum cashoutlimits that range from $2,000-$5,000per week. This means that if you hit arandom jackpot or win significantly, you will only be able to withdraw your winningsaccording to the casino’s weekly allowance.This could translate into weeks of waiting to receive the full amount of your winnings.Not all casinos have max cashouts but its important to look for them. Cashout detailscan be found in the terms and conditions page on a casino’s website or bycontacting their customer service team.Be sure to take the time to review this information so that you are not faced with longwaiting periods for your money.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 30 of 37
  • 32. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry Secrets Chapter 5: Info You Need to Know to Maximize Your Bonus Experience!!Y our goal should always be to maximize your bonus in order to get the most for your money.This means that you always want to deposit up to the maximum amount for thebonus. Here is a scenario to consider: If a casino offers a 325% Welcome Bonus up to a maximum of $3,250 then in order to maximize your bonus and give you the best chances of winning, you should deposit up to $1,000. $1, 000 x 325% = $3,250 (which is the max Welcome Bonus from the casino) In this case, depositing more than $1,000 will actually REDUCE your percentage bonus. For example, a $2,000 deposit would take you over. $2,000 x 325% = $6,500 Since your bonus is capped at $3,250, the bonus percentage is really only 162.5%.The lesson here is to use your money wisely. Remember to never deposit more thanthe max bonus amount in order to maximize your cash and keep the odds in yourfavor versus the casino’s.www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 31 of 37

  • 36. Casino Bonuses: Experts Tell All The Industry Secrets10 Tips to Find the Best Bonuses 1. If it’s not a one-time bonus, see how the bonus is broken down. Find the one that’s spread out the most with the highest match percentages per bonus. 2. Check out the wagering requirements for cashout. Try to aim for wagering requirements that are low. (What’s considered low? Rule of thumb: Bonus + Deposit x 20 and lower.) 3. Make sure the terms and conditions clearly state what games are allowed and what games aren’t allowed to meet the wagering requirements for cashout. 4. Make sure BEFORE you deposit that you don’t have an account at this casino. If you don’t remember, ask a customer support representative to check your details. (If you deposit and you once deposited at this casino, you won’t get your welcome bonus and you’ll have a lot of problems getting your money back). 5. Last but not least, make sure the casino is reputable! Be a smart consumer. Only deposit at a casino that’s regulated and licensed!!! 6. Do not deposit more on your first deposit than will allow you to get the full match bonus! 7. Dont worry about having an account at more than one casino - youll end up getting more bonuses that way. If you dont want the hassle -stick with your favorite casino and aim towards becoming a VIP player with access to the casinos loyalty program. 8. Dont deposit immediately after opening a real money account - if you wait a few days the casino will send you a better incentive to deposit - it will be worth the wait! 9. Always read the wagering requirements - dont be afraid to ask for NO BONUSES if you know you wont be able to meet them (i.e., if they dont allow you to play your favorite game, for example, blackjack). 10. Stay on top of emails, social media sites and the best casino bonus review websites to make sure you never make a deposit without getting a bonus and dont miss out on any time-sensitive bonus offers!www.NoDepositCasinoOnline.com Page 35 of 37
