A signup bonus (a casino signup bonus, of course) is a bonus that a casino or sportsbook gives you upon registration. There is no need to make a deposit like with “welcome” bonuses, so there is no need to invest any of your own money.
The only hard work is to create an account, and then maybe also submit KYC documents if you win enough or play through the wagering requirements and are ready to withdraw your winnings.
For example, a 200% match up to C$100 means if you deposit C$50, the casino will give you C$100 more to play with. That means you’ll have a total of C$150.
Will the bonus be used before, after or together with the deposit is another matter which must be stated in the casino’s T&Cs with wagering requirements and other important terms. The casino match bonus is not free money.
It tells how many times you must play your bonus and/or deposit amount through to withdraw any winnings from them (see also “What is a sticky bonus?”).
Example #1: A 100% match bonus up to $100 with a 40x bonus WR means you must play the bonus $100 x 40 = $4,000. Do that and you’re good to withdraw your winnings.
Example #2: If the wagering is for both the bonus and deposit, eg 20x the bonus and 20x the deposit amount, then the rollover is just done in a specific order, depending on which amount is played first.
In most cases, the answer is no, because of game weighting. Table games usually contribute less towards the WR than slots, as do high RTP slots, for obvious reasons. Continue reading “It’s a bonus amount that the casino gives you proportionally to your deposit”
