There are various types of bonuses available for all kind of different casinos which often lead to misunderstandings, and confusion if you do not understand what they are. Here, we will try to briefly explain the different types of bonuses available. All bonuses will have a playthrough requirement before you can cash out for it, so make sure you know how it works and which games allowed and which are not.
What does playthrough or wager requirements mean at an online casino?
Before we get into the different types of bonuses, let me try and explain the playthrough or wagering requirements. This is the one point where most of the disagreements or confusion pops its head.
Example: You need to play your deposit plus bonus 10x before cashing out. (These numbers will depend on each casino)
You deposit MYR100 and you receive a bonus of MYR100 – that will give you MYR100 to play with. Now you must wager this MYR200 at least 10x before you can think about withdrawing any winnings. That means you will need to make MYR1000 worth of bets.
Sometimes, a casino will say that you only have to play your bonus through a certain number of times. So, with the example above; You start with MYR100, but MYR100 needs to be played through 00x, meaning you will need to make at least MYR1000 worth of bets to cash out.
Another thing that you need to make sure you know, is which games are allowed and which aren’t. Almost all casinos will exclude certain games from this playthrough. This means that even if you have made MYR2,000 worth of bets on blackjack for example, your overall playthrough still stands at zero and you will not be allowed to withdraw your money. You will also find that some casinos will allow you to play blackjack using a bonus, with a higher playthrough requirement.
As you can see, that is all maths. But essential if you plan to withdraw your winnings at some point. Make sure you read these terms at each casino you join, because most of them will be different from each other.
