Being a Newbie Pays Off

Online casinos are very often involved in a fierce battle to win over new customers. So being a new player for one of them can really play in your advantage, as most of them offer an attractive welcome bonus for first time players. But be aware, a welcome bonus does not mean “free money”. You usually have to pay in first and sometimes play that money before you are granted a welcome bonus. So always read the terms and conditions carefully before you engage.

Examples of how it works

  • Example 1

The offer on the table: bet £10 and get £50.

You’ll need to create an account with that online casino. But don’t go wagering £10 randomly. You have to opt in for this promotion first through the offers section. Then you’ll need to bet your £10, but do check in the offer first if your wager counts for all the casino games. As sometimes some are excluded from offers. Also, there is very often a set time frame in which you will need to place your bet to enjoy the offer. After having done this, your bonus will become available on your account in the form of free spins, a slot bonus, a table bonus, etc. These are then connected to wagering requirements of their own and most likely you’ll need to use them in a short time span as well say 24-72h.

  • Example 2

The offer on the table: 100% up to £250

Again you will have to create an account first. Then you will have to make a first deposit into your account. Your welcome bonus will then be a 100% of what you had deposited. But very often this is cut into several small deposits and you’ll have to wager this a certain number of times before you can request a pay out of your winnings.
