You are going to be tempted to claim some of the many high valued bonuses that casino sites shower upon you, however many bonuses are designed in such a way that you will not have a fair and reasonable chance of winning when you claim them and utilize your bonus credits.
There are a few little tips we can pass onto you that will help you decide which bonuses are always going to be worth claiming and which bonuses you should avoid like the plague!
The percentage of your deposit that is going to be matched with bonus credits is the first thing you should be checking out, coupled with any additional terms and conditions that you will have to abide by when playing off your bonus credits.
A general rule you should stick to is to only claim bonuses that will boost the value of any deposit you make by at least 100%, anything lower than that amount will not be worth claiming, when you take things such as play through requirements into account.
Bonuses always come with a play through requirement and as such you should always know how many times you will have to play through your bonus credits before they get turned into real money credits.
If a bonus is designed in such a way that you have to play through your deposit and your bonus together, certain number of times always avoid claiming those bonuses, stick to those on which a play through is only attached to the bonus part of your account balance and not your deposit as well!
The lower the play through requirement the better, 30 times or lower is usually a fair amount of play through, however try and stick to playing slot machines that have a high payout percentage, as you are more likely to be able to churn through your bonus credits more times when playing high RTP slots than you ever would do playing a slot with a low RTP!
Bonuses that have a cap on the amount you can win are appalling and insulting to most slot players, for you could win big and then lose a large percentage of those winnings due to any type of maximum cash out limit. Also, and this is important, make sure that any bonus credits you do claim can be used on the type of slot machines you want to play.
What some casinos will do is allow you to claim what appears to be a high value and very fair deposit match type of bonus but will then only allow you to use your bonus credits on a handful of slots, usually the ones that have the lowest payout percentages by the way!
One final thing to keep in mind is that the vast majority of complaints about online casinos and mobile casino sites relate to bonuses and players having their winnings voided, so you will be required to stick to the bonus rules and fully abide by every single term and condition attached to a bonus offer if you do want to get paid out if you are lucky enough to win when using any type of bonus!
