Registration and reward bonuses: Are they worth it?

Most online casinos use registration and reward bonuses to entice players to
choose their site over the many other hundreds available on the internet.

Whilst the lure of playing with the casino’s money is enticing, there are
usually so many conditions and fine print involved, that redeeming bonuses can
be more trouble than it’s actually worth. However, from the casinos perspective,
conditions of bonus play are carefully established to protect themselves from
abuse from players who redeem bonuses for cash, as opposed to actually playing
them.

There appears to be standard terms and conditions with regard to bonuses at
most online casinos. For instance, only one member of each household is
permitted to register at a casino site. The predominant reason for this, is that
some bonuses like the sign-up bonus, can only be availed once per player. The
casino stops gamblers from using the identities of other families to redeem
additional bonuses by ensuring that the e-mail addresses, credit card
information and residential addresses are not the same for players already
registered. Any duplicate information that may be discovered, could result in a
player being evicted from the casino site.

In most cases, online gaming sites ask the player to submit a bonus code that
is e-mailed to them in order to redeem any bonuses. Without this code, bonus
redemption is not possible. If a player forgets to submit his/her code, he/she
should contact the support centre to inform them before attempting to redeem the
bonus. Failing to do this could result in the bonus being nullified.

One of the most important conditions put in place by the casino is the
“wagering requirement”. This basically refers to the number of wagers that a
player needs to make before any withdrawals can be made. Attempts to withdraw
funds from a casino account before the wagering requirement has been met can be
construed as abuse of the casino facilities, and may lead to a bonus reversal,
as well as a reversal of winnings accrued whilst playing with the bonus. In
extreme cases, the player might be evicted from the casino site. It is therefore
essential that players contact customer support to ensure their wagering
requirement has been met before attempting to make withdrawals.

So, whilst it seems that cashing in of bonuses might be more trouble than
they are worth, there are some obvious advantages. Firstly, bonus play with
casino money allows the player to navigate casino sites and experience what they
have on offer without having to deposit any money. In some cases however,
casinos require a deposit before a bonus can be redeemed and a player should
contact their customer support to check if this is a criteria before downloading
any software. Secondly, there is always the chance that bonus deposits, after
having met all wagering requirements, could provide a win.

Most disputes between casinos and online gamblers arise from bonus
redemptions. It would therefore, be prudent for any gambler to verify the bonus
terms and conditions before deciding to make use of them.
