- a small number of free spins or a small amount of bonus money to play with.
The purpose of no deposit bonuses is to give players a free preview of what the casino has to offer. If you claim this type of bonus, you’ll get to try out some of the casino’s games without needing to have funded your account. If you decide to keep on playing at the casino, you can go ahead and make your first deposit. On the other hand, if you fancy trying out another casino instead, you’re free to do so and you won’t have wasted any money. Not every online casino has a no deposit bonus available.
Every casino with this kind of bonus on offer will also have a regular welcome bonus you can claim as well.
Another type of bonus you may come across at online casinos is the cashback bonus. This particular bonus isn’t as widely available as bonus money or free spins, but it’s still worth claiming if you happen to come across a casino that offers it.
- You play casino games with real money over a period of time.
- Your net losses are totalled and you’re credited with a percentage of your losses as cashback.
If you end the time period with a net profit, you won’t qualify for cashback; it’s only if you’ve made a loss that you’ll qualify.
- Sometimes, cashback is credited as bonus money that you can’t withdraw
- Sometimes, you’ll receive cashback as actual cash that you’re free to withdraw at any time.
- The amount of cashback on your losses you receive is usually between 5% and 25% or so.
If you want to live the high life at online casinos, you should aim to become a VIP. Most of the time, you’ll have to prove your loyalty to the casino and show you’re a top player before you’ll be granted VIP status. Some casinos don’t specify the exact requirements to become a VIP, but generally speaking you need to visit the casino very frequently and spend lots of money playing its games.
VIP bonuses are usually a step-up from the sorts of bonuses you receive before becoming a VIP. These bonuses and offers are commonly offered to those who have been granted VIP status.
- birthday gifts
- exclusive tournaments just for VIPs
- invitations to special events hosted by the casino brand
At some casinos, once you’re become a VIP you’ll always be a VIP (so long as you don’t close your account down, of course). At other casinos, you need to meet particular requirements every so often to gain VIP status for a limited time. If you want to keep you VIP status, you’ll have to keep meeting these requirements. For example, you ount in the last three calendar months to gain VIP status for the following calendar month. Therefore at some casinos, you have to keep earning your status as a VIP.
Not only are online casinos keen to get you to sign up, they’re keen to keep you coming back for more. That’s why many of them have a loyalty scheme that offers bigger and better rewards the more you play at the casino.
Loyalty schemes usually have a number of tiers. You earn points by spending real money on the casino’s games and the more points you’ve earned, the higher your tier will be. Each tier will offer more bonuses and more generous perks than the one before it.
