FAQ Online Casinos

What is a casino bonus?

  • A casino bonus can be anything from a match deposit bonus to a non deposit bonus. Below you’ll see the different bonuses explained.
    • A Parachute bonus means that whatever you have in your “cash” balance you can cash out at any time. If you choose to do this, you will forfeit your bonus balance. Recent changes to bonus regulations in the UK, mean that all bonuses offered there are Parachute bonuses. Examples of Parachute bonuses are: IGame & LeoVegas
    • No-Sticky bonus means that to be able to make any sort of cashout, you need to complete wagering. After wagering has been completed you’re cash and bonus balance are merged into cash balance. Example of No-Sticky bonuses are: Guts & Rizk (for UK though they are Parachute)
    • Sticky bonus is a bonus that can’t be cashed out. You can play with the bonus and generate money from it, but the initial bonus money can never be withdrawn. Not a lot sites have this kind of bonus, and none of the ones I promote do.
    • Non-Deposit bonuses are really rare to come across and usually has really high wagering requirements. The best thing about them is you don’t risk anything. The worst thing about is that they ALWAYS capped to a LOW max win. It’s pretty frustrating to win huge and not be able to cash it all out. But hey, it’s free so can really complain

Why check wagering?

  • Besides all the different types of bonuses that are available, these always come with wagering.
    • Bonus money wagering only.
    • Deposit + Bonus money wagering.
  • It’s important to know what type wagering you are facing, as it could be almost impossible to clear it.
  • Its ALWAYS best to have wagering on Bonus money only, as it usually means wagering is lower. It might look smaller with a Deposit + Bonus wagering, but let me just show you what I mean.
    • Bonus money wagering only: You deposit 100€ yourself and get 100€ in bonus. Wagering for the site is 40x. This means that you need to wager through 4000€ to complete wager (40 x 100€).
    • Deposit + Bonus wagering: You deposit 100€ yourself and get 100€ in bonus. Wagering for the site is 25x. This means that you need to wager 5000€ to complete wager (25 x 200€).

Restrictions playing with a bonus?

  • When you have an active bonus, you always have some restrictions. The most common restrictions are max bet and game restrictions.
    • Max bet: Practically all sites have max bet restrictions in place when you play with a bonus. Usually max bet is 5€, but check terms or ask me to be 100% sure. Some sites have lower some have higher.
    • Game Restrictions: Another thing that is very common is some games count less/not at all towards wagering your bonus. The casino will always specify which games. Some will even totally restrict you from playing specific games with a bonus. Again check bonus terms to be sure you know which games are restricted.

Which is the best casino license?

  • As a user of the Casino, it’s important to know which license they own. One of the reasons for this is, you don’t pay tax on winnings. Another reason is stricter rules for the casino towards customers etc. Below I’ll just mention the two most common ones.
    • MGA (Malta Gaming Authority): This is propably the most known license. I always play at casinos with a MGA license, too be sure I don’t need to tax winnings and because it’s in general a better license for the user (me/us).
    • Curacao (Curacao Gaming License): This is also a well known license, but it’s not as player friendly as MGA. The possibility for the need to tax your winnings is also present, which is a BIG factor. Still there are a lot of good casinos with this license, that run an excellent business.
  • Some countries have their own licenses like UKGC (UK), Spillemyndigheden (Denmark).

Can I play at this casino?

  • It’s very important to check the casinos terms & conditions to be sure your country is allowed to play there. For the casinos I promote on this site, you are very welcome to ask me for help in case you can’t find it in terms.
  • It’s also important to note, that casino welcome bonuses/terms offen differ for each country!
  • Some countries that are usually excluded from playing online casino are: USA, Spain, France, Middle East & Australia just to name a few.

Deposit/Withdrawel fees, time and methods

  • Deposits & Withdrawel fees is also something you should consider, before playing on any given online casino. I strive to play at casinos where there are no fees at all. In the long run fees are equal to lost money.
  • Deposits & Withdrawel times is also something that is important. Again the casinos i promote have very fast withdrawel times as well. Beware because besides withdrawel times, some casino have processing times as well. This means even slower withdrawels.
  • Deposits & Withdrawel methods. Most casinos offer a WIDE array of methods to deposit with. Check before you sign up that the casino has the method u wish to use. Unfortunately for most welcome bonuses you can’t use Skrill, Neteller. I would recommend depositing with Trustly, Visa or Skrill/Neteller.

Are affilate links better or not?

  • Here are some benefits you have by using an affliate link, instead of registering directly at the casino page?
    • Exclusive Deals not all affiliates have exclusive bonuses, but a lot do. Exclusive deals are always better than the standard offer. Just be careful though!! A lot of affiliate sites state they have exclusive deals, but when you sign up they actually don’t. Sign up through someone you trust and want to support.
    • Help In case of a dispute/questions you might be able to get some help/guidance on how to resolve complaints, requests etc., by contacting the affiliate you signed up through.
    • Giveaways for all people who sign up through affliate links, is also one of the many perks you have. These giveaways are done by the affiliate, not the casinos.
  • Also remember when you sign up through my affiliate links you support me as a streamer, and it helps me create a better channel, more content, better webpage etc. Please be careful when gambling, it can be a terrifying addiction. Do it for entertainment/fun, not for trying to win.
