Understanding Match Bonus Requirements
All too often, new players don’t go to the trouble of gaining a thorough understanding of the terms and conditions when accepting a promotional bonus. They may end up being disappointed because they didn’t investigate the requirements and limitations attached to a bonus - which isn't ideal for anyone. Even though the T&Cs are all laid out on the website, let’s go through some of the issues that should be considered when taking up a Match Bonus.
Know which games can be played using the bonus
Only some games count 100% towards the wagering requirements, while others may have limitations or do not count at all in the wagering requirement. Most slots count 100% (excluding progressive jackpot slots) but table games such as blackjack or craps may be restricted by being excluded or by limiting the bet amount. The reason for this is that certain games are high risk for the casino, which after all is a business that must turn a profit.
Know the wagering requirements of the bonus
Before getting too excited by all this ‘free money’, make sure you understand the playthrough requirements of the bonus (how much money you need to bet before withdrawing winnings). This is calculated as a multiple of the bonus or in the case of match bonuses, the bonus plus your activating deposit.
Know the minimum and maximum cashout limits
The idea of offering a very generous match bonus is to encourage players to sign up, give them the opportunity to have a much longer time playing and therefore maximize the entertainment value, plus improve their chances of winning. This free money gives the player an advantage over the casino, and therefore the casino often sets a limit on the cashout of winnings from large bonuses. Again, this makes business sense.
Know the processor options for cashing out
If you’re not sure about how to withdraw your bonus winnings, please consult one of our helpful support staff who will talk you through the process and help make your cashout quick and easy.
