Choosing an online casino bonus may seem like a pretty easy task. In most cases it is once you’ve found the casino of your choice. Sometimes players will base their casino choices on the bonuses alone and often times this ends up being a risky choice as some bonus offers don’t really help the player at all. Some might ask how free money does not contribute positively. In some cases where the money is totally free, you’d benefit. In other cases, the outcome may have landed the player at a loss instead. Below you will read about some of the typical bonuses found at USA online casinos and how to spot a legitimate bonus vs one that does not benefit the player.


VIP Club – Sometimes players are wowed by this particular offering, in land based casinos, the player’s club is usually quite lucrative with free perks. With online casinos, players usually have to rack up exuberant amounts of points to even be considered to join. At that point, players then won’t have too many big perks available to them either.

Free Chip Offers – In most cases, this is a great way to get to know a new casino but that’s about it. Sometimes the free chip offers will take you through all of the steps necessary, even cashing out some winnings. The important thing to know when choosing a casino with a free chip is that there are requirements in order to actually cash out winnings. My best advice? Be sure to read those requirements before taking out the bonus and before anticipating any money in return for playing. Sometimes we see reviews online written from the player’s prespective. The player is upset that the casino won’t give them what they claim are legitimate winnings. At the end of the day, some of the casinos will concede upon researching the issue, realizing that somehow the funds are owed to the player. In other cases, the requirements are so strict that the player will only walk away with knowledge of how the casino works (which isn’t always such a bad thing.)

Deposit Match Bonuses – This is the most common type of bonus found, just about every single online casino will give players the opportunity to double their money. How they work; players will simply make a deposit of their own with a coupon code. From there, the casino matches the player’s deposit with free money. Sounds good so far right? Well, the casino enforces some play through requirements which will need to be met in order to cash out any winnings. To spot a good deal from a bad one, players will want to read the requirements before using a coupon code. The requirements often times will make it so that the player will need to wager their money as well as the free money from the casino. Sometimes what happens here is that players will wager and wager until there is nothing left making it so that they only achieved the play through requirements but now have nothing left to play.

All in all, online gaming is fun and exciting even without the bonuses and promotions. If you happen to come across some with reasonable play through requirements, jump on in. Otherwise, you can have a great time playing fun casino games without the hassle of worrying about if you’re earning your own money or if you’re just simply getting through the play through requirements.
