Hi quil, a welcome bonus is something that a casino offers to players to sign up and deposit at their casino. The most common ones are percentage match offers, which means that when you deposit say £100, the casino might give you a 50% bonus or £50 extra to play with. However there ain't no such thing as a free lunch so they impose "wagering requirements" which means you have to gamble a certain total amount before you are allowed to withdraw your money. This is to stop people signing up and claiming the bonus then withdrawing without playing.

We have a page with more information about different types of casino bonuses here.


Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

Hi quill
welcome bonus is a bonus offered by casino for new players, it can be a match bonus or freespin, or also both, I almost take all the welcome bonuses in every online casino site and 60% fail in turnover requirement and the rest succeed with varied win, if you want a little fun with the casino then you can try taking the offer, good luck, ..

Hi, quil,

If you are new to online casinos, you are in the right place to get good information, advice, and even help occasionally.

Take your time enough like 1~2 months before making a real deposit with "Welcome Bonus".

Instead, you play with free bonuses (spins and chips) to get used to online casinos.
If you are lucky, you can even withdraw some money Smile

important note:
read the general terms & conditions and the specific bonus terms & conditions for the
welcome bonus carefully...i know that is a lot to read in the most cases but then you can be
sure that you can withdraw your winnings afterwards...
e.g. some casinos have this rule: deposits made via skrill or neteller are not eligible for the welcome bonus....
i made one of my first deposit at a online casino via neteller at G`DayCasino...I could choose the
bonus... deposit and received it (no warning). i finished the wagering requirements and then I requested a withdrawal, the support told me that I chose the wrong deposit method and that all winnings are invalid and my deposit amount was also gone...
