Types of Casino Bonuses


Bonuses are like nice little gifts for Casino players. They offer players more opportunities to get winnings, let them play their favourite games and reward their loyalty. In addition, a good Loyalty Program and generous Bonuses are good indicators of a casino’s reliability.

Types of Bonuses in online casinos

By reward:

Cash prizes

These are probably the most desirable Bonuses for players, as they don’t involve turnover requirements and are credited to the main balance directly. After being credited with this type of Bonus, you will be able to withdraw the funds or use them to place more bets.

Bonuses with turnover requirements

This is the most common type of Bonus for online casinos. When there’s a turnover requirement, you will usually have to place bets for a certain amount of money in order to get the Bonus. For example, if €10 is credited to your Bonus Balance and there’s a 30x turnover requirement, you will have to place bets for a total amount of €300. After the requirement has been met, the Bonus will be transferred to your main balance and will be available for withdrawal or further betting.

The turnover or wagering requirement is the amount you have to place in bets to release the Bonus.

Make sure to always read and pay attention to the promotion Terms and Conditions to make the most of the Bonus. Some Bonuses can only be used in certain games and may have an expiration date.

Free Spins

This type of Bonus is very popular among players and can be found in many online casinos. Free Spins are, as the name suggests, slot spins that can be used for free. The value of each Free Spin is set by the Casino.

You can get Free Spins as a reward for registering, making a deposit or fulfilling specific conditions (reposting publications, taking part in tournaments, referring friends, etc.). In most cases, winnings from Free Spins are credited to your Bonus Balance and have a turnover requirement.

By conditions:

Deposit Bonuses

As you might rightly assume, you receive this type of Bonus for making a deposit. You can find these Bonuses in almost every online casino. They give you a boost to your deposit amount and are very popular amongst players.

Deposit Bonuses come in various forms, but typically the specified amount of money will be credited to your Bonus Balance. The size of the Bonus usually directly corresponds to the deposit amount. However, in some cases it can be a fixed amount.

Turnover Bonuses

To get this type of Bonus, you have to place bets for a certain amount of money. The Bonus is normally calculated as a percentage of the amount you wager. Usually, Casinos have a list of games that you can play to earn the Bonus. These games often have the same provider, format, or a common theme.


Cashback Bonuses are favoured by many players. They allow you to get some of your money refunded. The Cashback amount depends on the total combined stake of your bets, or on the difference between your bet stakes and payouts. Simply put: the more you play, the better your Cashback conditions are likely to be. Typically, Cashback is credited to your account directly, but some Casinos or promotions have turnover requirements.

Tournaments and Missions

A tournament is a great way to spend time playing your favourite games whilst also competing for Bonuses and prizes with other players. The goal is normally to earn points and climb a Leaderboard by placing bets and meeting conditions. You may also see missions involving special tasks that you have to complete to earn rewards. For example, you might have to gather specific symbols in a particular game. At the end of the tournament or mission, the winners will get Bonuses and/or prizes.

Prize draws

Some Casinos also conduct prize draws. By meeting the promotion conditions, you’ll earn a ticket to participate in the draw and a chance to win a prize. Who knows, maybe your ticket will make you the lucky winner! Some prizes can be sizeable amounts, whilst others are just nice little Bonuses.

The conditions of the draw will vary according to the specific Casino or promotion rules.

Personal Bonuses

These Bonuses are credited on an ad-hoc basis to the accounts of individual players. These Bonuses are used to reward the most loyal and active players, or awarded in special circumstances, and are generally not limited by any conditions.

By objective:

Welcome Bonuses

Welcome Bonuses are designed to attract new players. This type of Bonus is normally the first Bonus a player will receive. To get a Welcome Bonus, you normally have to register and enter a promo code when making a deposit, or register using a reference link.

Different casinos offer different Welcome Bonuses, so the Bonus could take the form of a percentage of your first deposit, a fixed Bonus amount, Free Spins or another reward. Some Bonuses even offer several different options and let you choose the Bonus you prefer.

Referral Bonus

This Bonus is available to existing customers for referring friends. Just give your friends the reference link. If they register using this link, you will get a nice Bonus.

Loyalty Program

Loyalty Programs are there to reward existing and active customers. The details may vary from casino to casino, but typically you can earn loyalty points by playing games and then exchanging them for Bonuses.

Targeted promotions

Sometimes casinos or providers want to attract players to a specific product or a game. Therefore, they create special promotions that give you great rewards or generous Bonuses in exchange for simply playing that game.
