How Do Free Bonuses Work?
Quite simply, depositing a certain amount will reward you with a set amount of free credit to utilise. This will either be a set amount or a percentage of the amount deposited. Though no deposit offers do exist, the bonuses that are most worthy of your attention require an initial deposit to activate them. This is because you will always need to wager more money, but the higher the overall wager, the bigger the reward!
No deposit bonuses will invariably come with stringent caps to protect the casino’s livelihood. By contrast, with-deposit bonuses ensure your winnings can be just that – actual winnings.
Deposit bonuses will often come with a percentage, which denotes how much of the initial deposit amount will be awarded as free credit. Anywhere up to 100% (AKA: a matched bonus) is commonplace, but in their eagerness to compete, newer casinos have (in rare instances) been known to offer as much as a 1000% bonus! Though the survival of newcomers is never guaranteed, only those casinos that can guarantee the safety of a customer’s winnings will ever be featured on Freecasinoslots.ca!
Welcome Casino Bonuses and Reload Bonuses
For some newcomers, it sounds like a daunting, and somewhat unfair, stipulation – even without the new trend. However, the requisite capital can be built in no time, with the bankroll growing each time you make a new play. Nonetheless, you should note that it is only money spent on slot games that count 100% towards the required wager. This offers casinos a degree of protection against ‘card sharks’ in Poker and Blackjack, which are games that (unlike virtual slots) demand high skills in a niche area of casino gaming.
At Freecasinoslots CA, we will always make you aware of the casinos that offer reload bonuses to existing customers that have already made a deposit on the site in question. They work just like welcome bonuses, but as a gesture of appreciation to the customer’s loyalty, the wagering requirements will generally be lower or more flexible. Sites that have just begun hosting a new game from a well-renowned company (such as Microgaming) are many times more likely to offer a reload bonus. We will, of course, list such opportunities to ‘reload’ on this blog.
Reload bonuses are available to anyone, although the use of one specific reload bonus multiple times is impossible. They can only be used once by any IP address. Reload bonuses can also be tailored, depending on how often the customer deposits or how much they have deposited in the past. High stakes usually yield higher rewards, and some casinos even reward the most loyal and high-staking customers with VIP status. Once a customer achieves VIP status, they get access to the very best offers – potentially with exceptionally low wagering requirements
Frequently Asked Questions / Q&A
Q: Will all of the casinos on Freecasinoslots.ca have a bonus for me?
A: Certainly. What constitutes the ‘ideal’ bonus is entirely a matter of opinion. Consider your own budget, and if you think that meeting the wagering requirements is a realistic prospect. We will always endeavour to make recommendations here, but we can’t simply cut and paste the terms and conditions of every single online casino in Canada.
Q: But I don’t have time to read the terms and conditions of every casino in Canada! How can I find the wagering requirements of each?
A: Reading the terms and conditions thoroughly is advisable, but we realise that time is always short – and time is money! We would advise going to the terms and conditions page of each casino you are considering and pressing CTRL+F (or Command+F for Mac users). When prompted to search for a term, type in key terms like ‘wagering requirements’ and ‘minimum bet’ to ensure that you are not out of pocket before embarking on your (potentially) very lucrative online casino adventure!
Q: What is the normal range of wagering requirements?
Psychologically, wagering requirements can be daunting for new users, but as a general guide, the exact wagering requirement will be between 30x and 70x the initial deposit. The lower end of the scale represents only the bonus, while the top end is the combined total of the deposit and bonus. In our reviews, we state the ones which require deposit+bonus with the initials D+B. For example at PartyCasino, you’ll see we have 35x D+B, making the total wagering requirement 70x the initial deposit.
