There are a lot of different promotions and bonuses available at different online casinos. Most of the time, this leads to misunderstanding confusion and unnecessary stress for online casino players. This review contains a good explanation about all the different types of bonuses an online casino player will receive. All bonuses will have a play through requirement before players can cash out any winnings.
Before a player can get a bonus he fully needs to understand the play through and the wager requirements. The play through requirement works like this; a player needs to play his deposit plus bonus 20x before cashing out. (These numbers will vary from casino to casino)
The player deposits $100 and he receives a bonus of $100 – that will give him or her $200 to play with. Now he must wager this $200 at least 20x before he or she can think about withdrawing any winnings. In this case it means a player will need to make $4000 worth of bets before he will be able to cash out his money. Sometimes a casino says a player only needs to play a bonus a certain number of times. For example; a player needs to wager at least $100,- for a minimum of 20 times before he or she can think about withdrawing any winnings. This means the player needs to make a total bet of $2000,- before he can cash out.
Another thing that customers need to make sure they know, is which games are allowed and which aren’t. Almost all casinos will exclude certain games from this playthrough. This means that even if a player has made $10.000 worth of bets on blackjack for example, his overall playthrough still stands at zero and he will not be allowed to withdraw his money. Players will also find that some casinos allow players to play blackjack using a bonus, with a higher playthrough requirement.
The playthrough requirements and the wager requirements are clear now, so let’s explain the different types of bonuses.
