I’ve noticed casinos offering freebies – how do these work?
As mentioned previously, there are currently around 1200 online casinos in operation today. In order to make sure that you join their casino today, casino operators will offer you ‘bonuses’.
These come in three guises – sign-up, monthly or reward.
The first and most common bonus available is the ‘sign-up’ bonus. This is an incentive that makes sure you sign up with a particular casino. The casino will ‘give’ you X amount of pounds if you register and deposit some cash into their casino.
For example, 32Red Casino offers a 100% sign-up bonus, up to £320 free, if you deposit £25 or more. These ‘sign-up’ bonuses vary and for a comprehensive list of current bonuses, click here.

For example, the casino may write to you and say ‘deposit X amount today, and we’ll give you £XX.’ Or they may offer free chips if you play a certain slot game, or try one of their new games.

However, you must be aware that the casinos do not simply give out this cash for nothing. The way it works is simple. They give you free cash, but as part of the bargain you will have to use this free cash in the casino. This is called a ‘wagering requirement’ and each casino may have different
