Depositing the Right Amount Cash to Get your Bonus

The online gambling market has been flooded with casino bonus codes and no deposit casino bonuses, but most of the punters are signing up to deals without reading the small print.

No deposit bonus codes have been heralded as the best deals out there thanks to their generous free casino chip giveaways giving players instant cash to wager on the virtual casino floors. In this the rumours are true, as players are undoubtedly being given a great deal, and if they can get through the play through amount the cash is available for withdrawal.

Aside from this, what is becoming confusing is the increasing deposit match bonus codes out there. Some deals are offering up to 1000% deposit cash back, but their high deposit match codes are not always as good as they first appear. The reason for this is not the casinos themselves, but it is the players who sign up for the deals without researching what they are getting themselves into. This is making it difficult for the casinos because they end up bearing the brunt of the negativity that follows. Negativity that is as a result of players not being able to fully redeem their bonus codes because of the amount of cash they have deposited.

Every time a casino goer receives a cash bonus there is always a play through amount attached to the cash bonus to protect the casino from people just signing up and withdrawing the bonus cash. Doing this is a fair deal by any businesses standards.

This then leaves the responsibility of depositing the correct amount of cash according to the bonus to the players signing up for the deals. With most casinos the bonus cash is available immediately to make wagers with, but the cash cannot be withdrawn, whereas some of the other virtual gaming sites won’t immediately add the bonus cash to your balance. For instance, poker sites will split your bonus down so you redeem the cash in increments, and so when the increment has been paid out the cash value of that increment is then added to your balance, and it is available for instant withdrawal.

The main problem now is those who deposit a large amount of cash to receive the largest cash bonus they can is that the bonus is sometimes a figure that is too high for them redeem as cash for withdrawal.



An example of this would be a small stakes player depositing $500 for a 100% deposit match bonus. The bonus would be $500. A typical play through on this amount would usually be around 15 times the bonus amount. For the player to be able to withdraw his/her bonus he/she would need to play $500 multiplied 15 times, so $7,500 worth of bets. For a small stakes player making $5 bets on the black jack tables this would take a grand total of 1500 separate bets. A session of blackjack could be around 60 bets per hour, so overall you are looking at 25 hours play.

Many casinos and poker rooms prefer to utilise a deposit match that is paid out in increments. In the above example the $500 bonus would be split into 10 sections worth $50 each. Rather than the player getting the cash to play instantly the player has to make bets to earn the bonus back. With the typical 15 play through attached this would then be $750 worth of bets per increment to redeem the cash.

In all cases once the play through has been reached the cash will be available for withdrawal. However, the trick is that when you sign up for a casino bonus always make sure you read the play through rules and whether or not the cash will be immediately available or if you need to earn the cash via incremental payments. Lastly, calculate the stakes you plan on playing and ensure that you are able to redeem your bonus as cash.< br />
