Make Sure You Want the Casino Bonus

Monday, June 20th, 2011

We all love free stuff. Something is automatically good if it’s free, right? I mean, why would you ever turn down something free? The truth is, at an online casino, depending on the situation, that might be the wise move.

Online casinos use bonuses to draw in business. If you’re looking around at online casinos and you see that you can get up to $5,000 free, that entices you to join. In many cases, the bonuses are a great deal. However, that’s not always the case. Sometimes it is best to say no.

Before you accept any bonus money or opt into any promotion, you need to carefully read the terms and conditions. One caveat is that bonuses always have wagering requirements. A while ago, casinos added those to stop people from taking advantage of the bonuses by taking the money without playing at the casino. Now you have to wager all bonus and deposit money a specified number of times before you can make a withdrawal. If you play there a lot, it might not matter what the wagering requirement is. However, if you don’t play often, you might be better off opting out of a bonus that you have to wager a large number of times. Otherwise, it could take a long time before you can cash out your winnings.

Another common stipulation is for a bonus to only count toward certain games. If you are a blackjack player, you don’t want to accept a bonus for slots. Unless you’re going to play some online slots, it’s a waste of money.

The important thing to remember is that while the bonuses are there for your benefit, they aren’t necessarily good for everyone in every situation. Read all of the terms and conditions before taking money from any website, including an online casino.

Shocking casino bonus at InterCasino

Friday, September 10th, 2010

Online blackjack can be a very rewarding game if you stick to basic strategy. While the house still has a 0.5% edge, you can easily have a successful session where you make money, especially if you get on a hot streak. If you’re playing blackjack at InterCasino, though, you can be rewarded in another way.

InterCasino is telling all of their customers to “prepare to be shocked.” Don’t worry; they mean that in a good way. Their Shock Bonus is a random bonus awarded to anyone at any time, as long as their playing one of the games at the online casino. Sound simple? It is.

At random times throughout the day, the online casino will randomly select a player from all of the players who are wagering at that time. That player will receive a surprise bonus as well as an additional surprise offer that is “tailor-made especially for you.” I’m guessing that the supplemental surprise offer will be different depending on what game you normally play, so if you play blackjack it would be different from if you’re a slot player. I’m just guessing, though, because the details on this bonus promotion are intentionally vague. That makes it more of a secret and more of shock. How much is the bonus? I don’t know. How often will they give out the Shock Bonus? Can’t tell. Are you intrigued? I am.

One of the few things that I do know is that there is no limit to the number of times a player can be picked. The odds may be against you winning it more than once, but if you play at the casino a lot, it’s definitely possible. Since the winners are chosen at random from those who are wagering, the more time you spend at the online casino, the better your chances of being picked.

To be eligible, you don’t have to make a deposit, enter a coupon code or opt in. All you have to do is wager on your favorite casino games, including online blackjack. To have a chance at being selected for the Shock Bonus, visit InterCasino.

Blackjack bonus at Lucky Red Casino

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

On the weekends, I normally don’t spend much time on the computer. Therefore, I usually don’t visit any online casinos at that time. I am busy off doing something fun with my wife, whether it’s going to the beach, hiking, visiting a park or whatever. A lot of people feel the same way and for that reason, online casino attendance drops during the weekend. One way of combating that is by offering good casino bonuses during the weekend. Lucky Red Casino has a good blackjack bonus this weekend and it might be enough to convince me to play there.

Sure, I’ll still spend quality time with my wife, but it won’t hurt to spend an hour online. If you’re a fan of online blackjack and want to play some games this weekend, Lucky Red Casino has a bonus that will reward you for doing so. The online casino is offering a 75% match bonus on your deposits. The bonus has a maximum limit of $750. However, you can collect up to 5 coupons for this bonus, meaning you can actually collect $3,750 in bonuses.

To redeem the 75% blackjack bonus, you need to enter the correct coupon code. The codes for the five bonuses you can collect, in order, are BIGWIN1, BIGWIN2, BIGWIN3, BIGWIN4 and (you guessed it) BIGWIN5. The bonus money must be wagered at least 50 times before being withdrawn.

If you are all blackjacked out and want to try a different game, like slots or keno, there is another offer. Lucky Red Casino is giving away a 150% match bonus on deposits, with a $1,000 limit. The bonus for those games is higher than for blackjack because, as I’m sure you know, those games have a drastically higher house edge. Unlike the skilled game of blackjack, keno and slots are games of luck where the casino is going to take a big chunk of your money.

To take advantage of the weekend blackjack bonus, visit Lucky Red Casino.
