Many online casinos offer reload bonuses that are designed to give an addition to your account balance.
These work in the same way as the match bonuses you receive as a welcome offer, although they can be claimed by anyone who has signed up at the casino, not just new players.
Reload bonuses will credit your account with some gift money. The amount of bonus money you can receive varies depending on the offer and how much you deposit. Below is an example:
- 50% reload bonus;
- You deposit $20 into your account;
- You will be credited with a $10 bonus money offer.
The main difference between bonus money and real money is that the former cannot be cashed out.
For a standard reload bonus, your winnings are credited to your account as bonus money. Once you have met the wagering requirements for that particular offer, your winnings will be converted into real money and then, you can withdraw it.
In most cases you can use the bonus money on just about any game in a casino. There may be a few exceptions but you can still use it on most games.
When it comes to meeting wagering requirements, some games may contribute to these more than others.
Slots, for example, contribute to the wagering requirements usually 100% while table games, on the other hand, may contribute in some casinos as little as 10%.
