Types of Casino Offers
- Welcome Bonuses – Welcome bonuses – as the name suggests – are bonuses that casinos offer as a welcome to new customers. We go into a lot of detail about the types of welcome bonuses available on our aptly titled Casino Welcome Bonuses page. We also list the best casino bonuses from all the top online and mobile casinos, so why not take a look?
- No Deposit Casino Bonuses – As the name handily suggests, these bonuses are given to customers without the need to deposit first. This means you can check out who good a casino is before committing any of your hard earned, and you might well make a pretty penny in the process!
- Free Spins – Free spins are usually an extra bonus that is granted alongside the main casino welcome bonus, although some online and mobile casinos may focus their offer on free spins. This type of promotion gives you free spins of an online slot, usually but not always, one specific game. You get a fixed number of free spins with the value of each spin pre-determined and winnings either yours to keep or subject to further bonus wagering.
- Mobile Bonuses – Mobile casino bonuses are usually offered as an extra freebie, on top of the main welcome bonus found at an online casino. They are granted when you play at the mobile version of the main casino and are a nice way to try the mobile product whilst also grabbing some extra bonus goodness.
- Cashback Offers – Cashback offers come in a wide range of guises, with some offering rebates on losses and some offering money back in the event of a certain outcome. Yet others may offer cashback on winnings and all of these deals may either be on a named game only, over a specific period or if you’re really lucky, long term, ongoing offers.
- Reload Bonuses – Reloads are usually similar to matched casino bonuses but offered not just to new casino customers, but existing ones too. Reloads for current customers are usually less generous than the main welcome bonus. For example, if a casino gives new clients a 200% bonus, a reload may only be worth 100%. Such promos can either be regular weekly or monthly offers, or may be sent out ad hoc via email and sometimes only to individual players.
- Competitions – Competitions and prize draws are well worth looking out for, with one of the best ever offering customers the chance to win £1m! More common prizes are holidays, cash (smaller amounts!), gadgets and casino bonuses. Prizes are usually offered by way of a random draw – with entry subject to playing certain games – or sometimes prizes are automatically awarded to the player that plays a given game the most in a defined period.
- Loyalty and VIP Points Schemes – Any online casino worth its salt will offer a loyalty scheme of some sort, with the best awards and prizes offered to VIP high rollers. That said, any player who visits the casino from time to time will usually rack up a decent number of points. These are usually convertible into cash, casino bonuses or exchangeable for various rewards and prizes.
