Casino bonuses can be a wonderful incentive to begin gaming, but which deal is best for you depends on your playing experience and the terms and conditions of the bonus.

Online real money casinos in NJ offer bonuses just like their brick-and- mortar

So, whether you are playing online or inside your favorite casino, watch for these five types of casino bonuses that are frequently offered to draw new players in, and learn which ones might be most beneficial to you.

No-deposit bonuses

Online casinos that offer a no-deposit bonus are agreeing to give you free chips or currency to bet with just for registering. You won’t need to deposit any real money.

You can use your deposit bonus to game with the online casino, and if you generate some winnings with that bonus, you can cash it out. Note, however, that some casinos will have other wagering requirements you’ll have to meet before cashing out.

These rules will be covered in the terms and conditions, which are notoriously strict for all bonus types. These are also good for new players and those looking for a new casino regardless of play style.

Registration Bonuses

Registration bonuses are similar to no-deposit bonuses in that you’ll be awarded some cash to play with upon registering a new account. These are also similar in terms of the currency you receive and the restrictions — such as not being able to cash out the bonus amount. However, a registration bonus does require that you make a deposit. These are also good for new players and those looking for a new casino.

Free Money Offerings

Free money offerings are applied to existing customers if they meet certain conditions. The requirements for these bonuses typically include things such as being a member for a certain amount of time or making a specific total deposit amount. For example, if you deposit $500, a casino may add a free money offering of $100. You can play with this money but can’t withdraw it. This is a good bonus regardless of play style but only works for loyal customers or those willing to make a larger deposit.

Referral Deals

As the name implies, a referral deal bonus is applied when you refer a friend to the online casino. However, this is usually more involved than just getting an acquaintance to register an account. Some casinos may require that the person you refer signs up and makes a minimum deposit amount before rewarding your own account with a cash bump. This is good for any type of player, regardless of their experience or preferred games, if they have a friend or two who might also be interested in online casinos.

Bonuses can be great incentives to start gaming. Some expire after a certain date, so check the agreement and use those funds while you can. Look over the terms and conditions carefully before signing up, and remember that the bonus can usually only be gambled with and not cashed out.
