There are several things that you can do to really maximise your bonus, but there is still no guarantee that you will win from your bonus cash. This page will take a look at how you can maximise most matching deposit bonuses. Let’s start by taking a look at what happens when you accept a 100% matching deposit worth up to £200 (or equivalent currency) with a 20x wagering requirement attached to it.

This means that you can deposit up to a maximum of £200. The casino will then match your deposit pound-for-pound and you will end up with a total of £400 to play with (your initial £200 deposit + £200 in bonus cash). This bonus cash should instantly appear in your account as soon as you have made a deposit. If you deposit, for example, £300 or more, the casino will still only match your deposit by up to £200, so never deposit more than you need to when claiming this kind of deposit bonus, because you won’t get any extra bonus cash in return.

What are Wagering Requirements and how does it affect your Casino Bonus?

Many online casinos today offer a loyalty program where players must wager a certain amount of cash within a certain period of time to receive a cash bonus. Other bonuses are available upon signing up for the first time, but to take advantage of either of these bonuses, players must adhere to the ‘play-through’ wagering requirements.

In simple language, players must spend a certain amount of cash before even thinking of receiving the bonus. This will require plenty of time spent at the casino and by only playing on selected games. If the wagering requirements are not met within the selected period of time, players can wave goodbye to their bonus, which seemed quite realistic when they first started playing.

When the actual wagering requirements are realised, it doesn’t take a genius to see that if a player does actually manage to wager the required amount, they have been very lucky. Players will need to spend plenty of hours on the computer. In fact, several hours of solid playing time per day is generally what it would take to fully receive the bonus cash. If you only have a few spare hours per week, there is very little chance that you will benefit from the special offer.
