Types of Casino Bonuses

Types of Casino Bonuses Explained

As you probably already know casino promotions come in all shapes and sizes. Here we break them down giving you a better understanding of each bonus and how they will benefit you

Sign up / Welcome Bonus

Choosing a casino that's right for you could be a big decision. There's a lot of casinos out there. Generally, these types of offers are open to new players only. Using the signup or welcome bonuses gives you a taster of what the casino offers. Registering at a new casino usually offers rewards in the forms of cash to play with, free spins or deposit matching. At Crown Bingo when you register you'll get 10 FREE spins on one of the world's most popular casino games, Book of Dead.

Claiming your Sign Up bonus is easy. Just follow the steps required to activate the bonus. The cash or free spins will be credited to your account balance. When you're ready just register and begin playing for free.

No Deposit Bonuses

A no deposit bonus is pretty self-explanatory. It's a bonus you'll get without having to deposit any real money first. No deposit bonuses are great for trying out new casinos or games without spending a penny and are often part of welcome bonuses available to new players. Play for free using your no deposit bonus.

Common No Deposit Offers -£10, £20, £30 free no deposit (Be aware larger no deposit offers generally come with higher wagering requirements.

-10, 20, 30+ free spins no deposit

-Sign Up for cash to play with no deposit requirement

-£10 Free no deposit + 10 or more free spins

Deposit Bonuses

Deposit Bonuses require the player to deposit before getting the bonus. These types of bonuses usually offer cash to play with or free spins. Some examples are:

-Deposit £10 to get 10 free spins

-Deposit £10 for an offer of deposit matching up to 100% up to £100. Get £10 extra.

-Depositing £10 will give you £20 to play with.

-Deposit £100 for an offer of deposit matching up to 100% up to £100. Get £100 extra. Depositing £100 will give you £200 to play with.

-Once you make your deposit just follow the specific offer activation steps. Once the offer has been accepted funds will credit to your account. Crown Bingo make activating your bonuses very simple.

Card Registration Bonus

This offer works very much like your standard sign up bonus however requires more than just registration. Upon registration you must go on to register a card. However, as you are only expected to register a card no deposit is required to be awarded with the bonus, promotion or offer.

Unlock Cash

The Unlock Cash is one we offer new players at Crown Bingo. Get £50 and 10 FREE Bingo tickets on 2 deposits. That gives you £100 and 20 free tickets to Play Bingo.

To unlock your free cash the designated wagering requirement must be met by playing through your deposited funds first.

For example:
The Offer Unlock up to £50 and 10 free bingo tickets
Wagering Requirement x30
You Deposit £10

To unlock your £10 you must deposit £10 and stake it meeting the wagering requirements. The wagering requirement amount would be:

Stake X Wagering Requirement - £10 X 30 = £300

Free Spins Bonus

Free Spins are music to every casino players ears. Free spins enable you the opportunity to spin the reels playing favourite slot games for free. Often free spins bonus offers will include wagering requirements meaning a specific target must be met before cash can be withdrawn. Luckily at Crown Bingo none of the free spins bonuses includes any wagering requirements. That means you'll get free spins no deposit with no wagering requirements required to win real money that you can take out of your account. There are multiple ways in which free spins may be awarded:

-Sign Up Free Spins

-Deposit Free Spins

-Free Spins Weekend

-Slot of The Week

-No Deposit Free Spins

Free spins will appear in your account balance and become available on all, or eligible games. Just head to the game you'd like to play and begin spinning for free. Certain games may be on an excluded list which will be documented the free spins promotional terms. This makes them exempt from using your free spins bonuses on that specific game.

Using your awarded no deposit free spins is the perfect way to:

-Try a new casino

-Try a new game

-Play your favourite game at no cost

-Learn the mechanics of slot you have never played

-Play for free

-Win real money without costing you a penny

New players can get 10 free spins no deposit required on Book of Dead for registering at Crown Bingo. No Deposit Required. No Wagering Requirements. T&CS Apply.

Bonus Spins and Extra Bonuses

Bonus or Extra spins can also be offered alone in conjunction with other offers such as sign up bonuses. The major difference between free spins and bonus spins is that Bonus or Extra Spins have wagering requirements.

The UKGC guidelines require casinos to advertise free spins with wagering requirements as bonus spins. Once the wagering requirement is met you will be able to keep the winnings.

Free Tickets for Bingo Games

As one of the UK's biggest bingo communities, it'd be cruel if we didn't offer you some free bingo tickets to get started. As part of our Unlock up to £100 Cash offer you'll also get 20 FREE Tickets to use in our new private bingo room, The Lounge. This offer is split over 2 deposits meaning you have two opportunities to get at least 10 bingo tickets per bonus use.

Free Bingo tickets allow you to try our bingo games for free in the Lounge which is open between 7-10 pm with £300 for up for grabs each day. There is no wagering requirement on our free bingo tickets.

Cashback Bonus Offers

Cashback bonuses are usually awarded to players with after spending a specific amount of funds.

For example, a player deposits £100 and uses a 20% cashback offer. The player will be awarded £20 upon playing through the £100 deposited by the player. This offers players a chance to extend gameplay and turn the tide on winning. Sometimes cashback bonuses include wagering requirements.

Card Registration Bonuses

This is generally aimed at new users. A bonus will be granted when a player registered their card / payment method with a casino. Often this type of bonus requires no deposit. As with other registration style bonuses a card registration bonus is a great way to sample a casino and get first-hand experience before playing with real funds.

VIP Bonus

This type of bonus is kept exclusively for VIP players. Players that remain loyal to a casino will sometimes be granted exclusive bonuses.

Refer a Friend Bonus Offers

A refer a friend bonus grants players a bonus for referring another friend for registration. If a friend registers then both players will be granted a bonus for doing so.

Reload Bonus Promotion

A reload bonus is usually offered to loyal players as a reward for continuing to play with a casino. A little extra will be added into your account offering extended gameplay at no cost with a potential to win cash prizes. Often with reload bonuses wagering requirements are lower making it easier for you to withdraw your winnings. A reload bonus could come as free spins or cash. After all, anything for free is a nice gesture.

How to Get Casino Bonuses

When you find the casino you'd like to play with it's time to take a look at the welcome or sign up bonuses. It can be a lucrative way for players to start playing for free, get a taste of what a casino is like and play your favourite games at no cost, sometimes before even making a deposit.

At Crown Bingo head over to our Casino & Bingo Bonus Promotions page to find out everything you need to know about the promotions currently on offer.

We love to give back to our loyal players. You can expect to find regular casino & bingo bonuses on rotation. Be sure to look at promotions page and check your emails for promotions regularly if you're looking to take advantage of the latest offerings from Crown Bingo.

How to Choose The Best UK Casino Bonus For You

As we now know there's a variety of potential casino bonuses on offer to you. Where should you begin? How do you know if a casino bonus is worth it?

Don't worry - we'll cover it all you need to consider here:

Things to Consider When you Choose a Casino Bonus
1. Pick a Casino Bonus that works for you Make sure you pick a casino bonus that suits your playing style. Free spins will be useless if you're hoping to play Blackjack or Live Megaball.
2. Review the terms Reviewing the terms before you take advantage of a promotion. Most promotions have a variety of T&Cs a player must abide by to turn their promotion into withdrawable cash. T&Cs are put in place to provide a fair experience for both the casino and player.
3. Check the Time Limits Checking the time frame you have to meet the staking requirements of an offer is crucial. Often, for example, a casino may give 3 days to play through wagering requirements. If you don't have that time free then the offer may not be worth using until you do
4. Review Wagering Requirements Players will often see a bonus offering something like £10 FREE. That seems like an offer nobody would pass up. However, some casinos include irrationally high wagering requirements of x75, x100. To put that in context your free £10 would need to be stake x100. That's £1000 before you can withdraw any funds from your bonus.
5. No Wagering Requirements Some offers have no wagering requirements, for example, like the 10 FREE spins players will get for registering at Crown Bingo. This means any profit won from free spins can be withdrawn straight away.
6. Eligible Games Picking a bonus that has a variety of eligible games may be the best way to experience a variety of slots. Sometimes promotions will only be usable on a specific list of games. On the other hand, some promotions can be used on all games, minus those on the excluded list.
7. Excluded Games If the game you were hoping to use your free spins or bonus on is excluded from the promotion you may have to choose another game.
8. Cash-Out Limits Cash-Out Limits are a maximum amount players can withdraw from their bonus winning amount. If for example, you won £200 but the cash-out limit is set at £100 you will only be able to withdraw £100. Casinos with high cash-out limits are better for the player.
9. Payment Methods Certain payment methods may not be eligible to use with a bonus. Make sure the payment method you choose will allow you to access the bonus you have in mind.
10. Maximum Bets Certain bonuses may restrict the maximum bet a player can stake to meet a specified wagering requirement. This information will be within the promotional terms.

Wagering Requirements Explained

Wagering Requirements Explained Banner

Wagering Requirements are often overlooked but absolutely crucial to picking a casino bonus that's right for you. The higher the wagering requirement the harder it will be for you to withdraw any funds gained through using your bonus. Wagering requirements can vary from 10x to 75x and in some cases higher.

-A common wagering requirement is usually anywhere between 20x and 35x.

-Anything higher than the common wagering amount (20x to 35x) is generally associated with higher bonuses such as 200% or 300% plus.

-Some bonuses, such as our free spins at Crown Bingo have no wagering requirements which is a great way to experience a casino or game for free.

One of the two most complicated parts of wagering requirements is working out how much you need to bet to win and whether or not the wagering requirement applies to the bonus, or the bonus + deposit.

Below is two examples to help you work out the wagering requirements are:

Wagering Requirement with Bonus:

-Example Offer = £10 No Deposit required

-Wagering Requirement = 50x

-Your Winnings = X

-Calculation Required: £10 (Bonus Amount) X 50 (Wagering Requirement) = £500

Explained: To withdraw your bonus winnings a wagering requirement of 50x must be met. That means a player must bet £500 before any winnings from the bonus funds can be withdrawn

Wagering Requirement with Bonus & Deposit:

-Example Offer = 100% up to £100

-Wagering Requirement = 35x + your deposit

-Your Deposit = £50

-Your Winnings = X

-Calculation Required: £100 (Bonus + Deposit) X35 (Wagering Requirement) = £3,500

Explained: To withdraw any funds acquired from this bonus would need the player to wager both their £50 deposit and £50 bonus 35 times before a withdrawal can be made. This equates to a bet of £3,500 before you can withdraw your winnings.

Bonus Spins Wagering Requirement

-Example Offer = 50 Bonus Spins

-Wagering Requirement = 35x

-Your Deposit = £10

-Your Winnings from Bonus Spins = £100

-Calculation Required: £100 (Bonus Spin Winnings) X 35 (Wagering Requirement) = £3,500 (Amount to bet before withdrawal)

Explanation: To withdraw winnings from your bonus spins a wagering requirement of 35x must be met. Winning £100 from your bonus spins means you will need to bet a total of £3,500 before withdrawing winnings. It looks like a big requirement but as you continue to play wins will make the target more achievable.

10, 20, 25+ Free Spins No Deposit With No Wagering Requirement

-Example Offer = Free Spins No Deposit No Wagering Requirement

-Wagering Requirement = No Wagering Requirement

-Your Deposit = £0

-Your Winnings = X

-Calculation Required: No Calculation Required

Explained: Any winnings from an offer that has no wagering requirements are yours to withdraw whenever you like. No wagering target must be met.

As a helpful reference we've created this infographic which can be used as a source of help should you ever need to know about wagering requirements again in the future.

Other Requirements to Consider When Evaluating Casino Bonuses

Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of wagering requirements. As mentioned earlier in the article there's more to casino bonuses than wagering requirements. Be sure to look at time limits, minimum deposit amounts, maximum withdrawal amounts, max bet with an active bonus, forbidden betting patterns and more.

The best way to avoid any hidden surprises is by reading the terms and conditions of each offer with a magnifying glass. Make sure you have a full understanding of the offer before you commit.

Percentages and Payouts

Another confusing aspect of a variety of casino promotions are the percentages and payouts, often found with welcome bonuses. Like wagering requirements players often panic however we're here to help and can show you that actually, it's pretty simple to work out.

In the table below we show you the bonus, how they work and what to expect when you take out a percentage-based bonus.

Bonus Percentages & Payouts
Bonus Information
100% Bonus Sometimes known as deposit matching. A 100% Casino Bonus matches whatever you deposit. For example: the offer could be 100% up to £100 meaning anything you deposit is matched equally up to £100. It doubles your first deposit. If you deposit £100 you will have £200 to play with. On offers like this, you can expect wagering requirements to be fairly high.
200% Bonus A 200% is better again and popular among casino players. It will triple your original deposit. For example: if you were to deposit £100 and use a 200% bonus you'll have £300 to play with. Often deposit requirements are staggered meaning if you deposit £50 you will still get the additional £100 to play with. As the bonus size increases so do the wagering requirements.
300% Bonus Now we're getting into rare territory. This type of promotion is usually offered when hoping to attract a lot of new players. Deposit £100 to get £400 to play with.
400% Bonus The bigger the bonus, the rarer it is. It's not an offer you're going to see very often. However, should you see an offer this big be wary of the wagering requirement. You can expect them to be unrealistically high. As an example: if you deposit £100 you'd be given £500 to play with.
500% Bonus Now we're treading in uncharted territory. A 500% bonus is one you rarely see and when you do wagering requirements are extensive. For example: if you were to deposit £100 you'd get £600 to play with. Pretty amazing, right? Don't forget to check the terms and conditions!
