Understand your online casino bonus

The competition between online casinos for new players is always intense and apart from expensive advertising one of the most popular ways to attract new casino players is to offer special incentives such as an online casino bonus Here at we have seen many casino bonus offers and it is very easy to get carried away with a massive headline amount which is advertised but for the benefit of Irish casino players we would like to point out a few things that may help avoid disappointment. It is important to realise that the online casino is not about to give you money that you can run off with so there are always requirements which must be met before you can withdraw any of the bonus money and these are often quite onerous. For example at Paddy Power casino (Paddy Power is used as an example and we are not suggesting that the casino bonuses are any better or any worse than other large online casinos) the promotion is a 100% match of your first deposit so if you deposit €100 you will have €200 to play with but should you win a few Euro and want to withdraw your cash you will find that you lose the bonus.You can only withdraw the bonus cash once you have played for stakes of 32 times the bonus plus your original deposit which equates to €6400 and what is more, it is only casino slots that count 100% towards this stake requirement; if you play roulette which only counts for 5% you will need to stake a total of €128,000 before you can withdraw the casino bonus money. Of course what a casino bonus does do is allow you double the fun because you can play for twice as long so we cannot advise you to decline the online casino bonus but to avoid disappointment you should realise that casino bonuses are very difficult to turn back into cash.
