An easy way to get your hands on some free casino gambling cash. Casino matching bonuses are often very similar to a standard welcome bonus or sign up bonus in that they enable you to start gambling with extra funds smacked down in your bankroll as free casino cash. These bad boy bonuses are quite common but you have to know where to look for them.
Most reputable casinos will offer some form of match bonus as a welcome on your first cash in. However, many of the better ones offer you ongoing matched deposit bonuses on your second, third, fourth and even fifth casino cash in. They figure that by the time you’ve deposited for a fifth time you’re going to stick around for some time. This is a myth. In reality most of us don’t make it as far as a sixth deposit and move on to try our luck at another online casino. If you do make a multiple deposit you’re either getting personal attention or have had a fairly decent win streak. And if this is the case then you are right to stick around.
The basic mechanics of a matching bonus are best described by the following example:
Offer: 100% match up to $500
Player deposits $500
Online casino matches this deposit by 100%, so gives the player $500 automatically to his gambling bankroll. Of course there are requirements that must be met for this kind of bonus before a player can make a withdrawal of the bonus funds. Most casinos will ask the player to complete ‘wagering’ or ‘play through’ requirements before the money will be released as withdrawal funds.
The actual percentage bonus of match offered is usually capped at a certain value and varies between different online casinos. Some only offer a tiny 75% but the fabulous and reputable Rome Casino is currently offering players a massive 200% match up on your first deposit bonus. This offer is limited (duh!) so won’t be available for much longer.
