Rules For Earning Comps

Although most online casinos will make it look as though your bankroll will constantly be overflowing with free cash. In truth most online casinos, sport books and poker rooms place restrictions on when and how the bonus cash can actually be withdrawn by the player. In other words you may have to jump through a few hoops to lay claim to the cash.

At some gaming sites these restrictions are minimal, requiring only that the players wager a specific amount-typically based on the size of the comp or in some cases play a predetermined number of hands. Others, however make the restrictions almost overwhelming by requiring massive amounts of betting, stipulating the games that can be played and limiting the lenght of time during which the players can earn the bonus. In essence it’s in the players best interest to select a site that offers the fewest bonus restrictions.

The following is a generic example of a typical comp restriction policy found in an online casino.  These can usually be found on the site’s “promotion” pages.

Terms and Conditions

All promotions offered by this site are intended as a bonus to loyal players and to attract new users.  The Casino encourages users to participate in such promotions, but to refrain from abusing them. Any abuse of a promotion that comes to the attention of the Casino may result in the cancellation of the promotion and/or future promotions.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Player must take a single lump sum deposit in one transaction of $25 or more.
  • Player must wager an aggregate total of thirty-five times in the casino before they can withdraw the bonus money.  For example, deposit=$100, bonus=$100, you must then wager an aggregate total of $3,500 in the casino before you can cash out the bonus money and its winnings.
  • Bonus cash will be credited to one account only.
  • This offer implies to every calendar month throughout the year.
  • Certain games, including Baccarat, Roulette and Craps do not count toward minimum wagering requirement.
  • Players from Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, latvia, Poland, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Ukraine will be excluded from the deposit bonus promotion.

While at first it may seem that bonus restrictions are nothing more than a way for operators to trick players into spending all their money, these measures are simply a way to protect themselves against bonus abuse. Requiring players to wager a predetermined amount of money before the bonus funds are released, keeps away those players who continuously open new accounts, get some free money and then cash out.
