Cashback or Insurance
Cashback or Insurance bonuses are offered as a percentage of all losses in the player’s previous gaming activity. Typically, only deposits that were not matched with bonuses count towards this bonus.
The Daily bonus is a deposit match bonus that is offered once a day. It may be related to a certain date or a special day of the week.
Free Plays are free trial games offered to players on special pop-up software for a limited time, usually one hour. Some winnings from this play can be transferred to the player’s casino account if the player makes a minimum deposit. After the winnings are transferred, they become a Welcome bonus and certain wagering requirements may apply.
In some cases, Free Spins are awarded as a bonus on slot machines, and the winnings may be withdrawn. In other cases, Free Spins are provided as a means to win a bonus, and all winnings from Free Spins will have to satisfy wagering requirements before they can be withdrawn. Free Spins may also be offered in addition to bonuses if the player wagers the original bonus on certain slots games specified by the casino.
Gift bonuses may only be received by a limited number of players either as a result of a prize draw or a tournament, or it may be awarded to certain players by the management as a token of appreciation. Most of the time, a Gift bonus does not require any wagering.
The Loyalty bonus is offered based on the player’s previous activity in the casino in a certain period of time. It can be a deposit match bonus or a No-Deposit bonus. Some Loyalty bonuses may be exchanged for loyalty or comp points.
The Monthly bonus is a deposit match bonus that is offered once a month, as a rule, on the first deposit of the month. The number of Monthly bonuses may be limited to 6 or 12 months after the first deposit.
No-Deposit or Free Chip
The No-Deposit or Free Chip bonus has no prerequisites, such as a deposit or pre-wager. It may be given to new or existing players. Some casinos may require a deposit to withdraw winnings from a No-Deposit bonus. The key aspect of this bonus is that the player does not risk any money while playing with the bonus. However, it should not be confused with the Free Play bonus.
The Ongoing bonus is a deposit match bonus that may be received at any time. It may be offered on every deposit in the casino or on deposits by certain payment methods only. Sometimes the Ongoing bonus has a specific time frame or it may be dedicated to a certain event.
There are two types of Referral bonuses: one for the Referee and one for the Referrer. The Referee gets a bonus when he or she registers an account at the casino and mentions the Referrer. The Referrer gets a bonus when the Referee completes all the requirements, such as making the deposit and wagering it a certain number of times.
A Special bonus is a no-deposit or deposit match bonus which is usually linked to a specific event. It can be awarded on a certain date, e.g. Birthday or Anniversary Bonus, or after fulfilling certain requirements, such as posting comments on the casino’s social network pages, finding mistakes on the casino website, or sending verification documents.
The VIP bonus is only available to VIP members of the casino and may depend on the VIP level of the player.
In a number of cases, the player will receive the lowest level of VIP status automatically with the first deposit or several first deposits in the casino, so the bonuses of the lowest VIP level will be available to any player. In other cases, higher VIP levels and access to VIP bonuses become available after redemption of the Welcome High-Roller Bonus (Welcome bonus on a large deposit).
The Weekly bonus is a deposit match bonus that is offered once a week.
The Welcome bonus is a deposit match bonus on the first deposit ever made in the casino or casino group. Welcome bonuses sometimes come in packages and may be given to match the first two or three deposits (First Deposit Welcome Bonus, Second Deposit Welcome Bonus, etc.). They can also be tied to specific games, such as the Welcome Slots Bonus or the Welcome Table Games Bonus. The casino may also offer Welcome bonuses for high rollers who make an initial deposit above the standard amount limit.
