Redeeming the bonuses that online casinos offer can be very confusing because all the fine print in terms and conditions.

Casino bonuses are not meant to be free giveaways. The casino wants to be sure that the bonus money is used to wager and not just cashed. Online casinos protect their business the way they can.

Most casinos allow only one account per household, and especially only one account per person. This is so that one-time sign up bonuses are not used multiple times. The email address, home address or credit card number cannot have been used by another person before. Online casinos check for duplicates. If they find one, you will be banned from the website.

Sometimes you need to enter the bonus code before making a deposit, otherwise it might be impossible to redeem the bonus. If you forget to enter the code, you can contact customer support about it. Most times they will help you with this situation.

The wagering requirement is the main condition of redeeming bonuses. Before meeting the requirement you cannot cash out, even if you follow all the other rules of the bonus. If you want to withdraw the money earlier, even if it’s by mistake, you will get in trouble – the bonus and your winnings from it can be cancelled and your account might be blocked. When in doubt, ask customer support if the wagering requirement has been met.

Bonuses can be very complicated, so familiarizing yourself with all the rules is vital.
