What's in a name? Sign up bonus, sign in bonus, subscribe bonus, new player bonus, register bonus, etc... Innocent casino terminology or a snag?
Do not make it too complicated. There are generally 3 types of sign up bonuses: the no deposit free bonus, the match bonus and the sticky bonus. Here we go:
►The 'no-deposit bonus' is an offer by the casino to deposit a small amount of your own money into your account after you register, with no deposit required. Typically this is $10, $15 or $25.
►The match bonus is the most common bonus. The casino offers you a percentage match on your 1st deposit. The most common percentage = 100%, but percentages between 50 and 400 also pass by.
►The 'sticky' bonus is similar to a match bonus but has an additional condition, whereby you can never withdraw the bonus itself, even if you've successfully reached the wagering requirements
