Some online casino bonuses are better than others

There are many online casinos available to the Irish casino playing public including some famous names in the gambling market but there are also many smaller online casinos that deserve recognition. The larger conglomerates tend to have online casino play as a bit of a sideline to their sports gambling activities which could mean that casino players are not getting the attention they deserve which smaller online casino focussed sites may be able to provide. A typical example of this can be seen when looking at the bonus which online casinos are offering to new players indicating that only new players are of interest. Once you have registered an account you just become another number. These bonuses are usually in the form of a deposit match whereby the online casino will match your first ever deposit into your casino account. Sometimes you may come across online casinos that will give a match on your second or even third deposits as well but this will always be less than the 100% match available on your first deposit. Ignoring the fact that these bonuses are notoriously difficult to turn into actual cash that can be withdrawn, once you have had it that’s it.

There are, however, smaller specialist online casinos that appreciate all players and consequently offer bonuses to everybody who plays whether they are new or not but these bonuses are different. A good example can be found at Freespins casino where there is a bonus available on every deposit made by everybody. Freespins casino itself is a very reputable online casino correctly registered, licensed and operated out of Malta which many online gambling companies are plus they hold a separate license issued by the UK Gambling Commission which is not essential for operating in Ireland but does give an extra layer of confidence.  The casino offers a full range of RNG games plus live casino from both an actual casino in Malta and a separate studio. Another fact that appeals to is that the casino games are all available to play for free which makes it very easy for players to try out new games without risking their own cash. The real difference between Freespins casino and other online casinos, however, lies in the casino bonus system employed. Instead of matching a deposit the online casino rewards players with free spins on a selection of video slots. The size of your deposit is reflected in the number of free spins which are allocated as does your choice of spins. There are three to choose from which are standard, super or monster which simply reflects your appetite for risk. Standard spins have a standard value of €0.10 per spin, Super spins have a value of €1 and Monster spins have a value of €2.50 so going up the scale reduces the number of free spins but increases the value of each one so the winnings are more but the frequency is less. The choice is yours. The selected video slot will also affect the number of free spins as some slots have a higher line stake than others.

Just to repeat, this bonus is available to every player on every deposit no matter how long you have been registered at the casino. Every online casino player will realise that if you are playing free spins it is impossible to lose money. The worst that can happen is that at the end of the free spins your balance is zero but more likely is that you will be in profit. It is not unreasonable therefore for the casino to prevent you from simply waking away with that cash without giving the casino the chance to win it back and indeed that is what happens. Any winnings which you made from the free spins must be wagered 50 times after which any remaining balance will be transferred as real money to your account. This may seem a lot but remember that this only applies to the winnings that were achieved while playing the free spins awarded so there is still nothing to lose and you might win. No large gambling conglomerate has anything like this on offer so in this case small is definitely better.

Freespins casino is not the only online casino to approach the subject of bonuses in a novel way, there is another online casino called No Bonus Casino which has spotted for its Irish customers which as the name suggests offers no casino bonuses to anybody. If it were that simple then the casino would have few customers but it does offer an alternative in the form of cash back if you lose. This works very simply as follows:- If a player makes a deposit into their casino account on any single day and manages to lose the whole deposit on the same day by playing any of the casino games on the site then 10% will be refunded the very next day. The only proviso is that there must be less than €10 in the account at the time. The good bit about this is not only is it available to all players on every deposit but the cash back really is cash. There are no play through requirements so once the cash back is made the cash is available for further play or even for withdrawal. It really could not be simpler. Apart from this No Bonus Casino is another well registered and controlled online casino licensed in Malta and the UK using a range of casino software to maximise your choice of casino games. Casino software comes from a variety of sources including well known brands such as NetEnt which is the home of slots such as Gonzo’s Quest™ and Jack Hammer™ alongside Amanet which tend to have simpler easy to follow slots as well as Microgaming which are probably best known for the huge jackpot slots such Mega Moolah™ where millions of Euro are available. The moral of the story is that you do not need to be satisfied with a one off bonus as there are moe options available.
