Bonuses is promotion that is aimed to attract more players to a certain casino. To simplify, bonuses are just promotional offers. However, sometimes they are aimed at promoting regular players for their activity and loyalty.

Sticky bonus

The idea is pretty simple - a player have to complete certain tasks, after what he can get his payoff (amount on the wallet minus the bonus size). In this type, the bonus isn’t given to the winner, but it’s returned to the casino. For example, if player have won $5 from $10 gifted, he can withdraw 5, while 10 are returned to his account. Some sticky bonuses can be lifted after the first withdrawal, while others will burn after certain time. Anyway, all of them have the same property: you can bet them, but you can’t cash them out. The main problem of such bonuses is that the win back terms are pretty strict and, in so doing, you often have to risk your real money. This bonus type has giant quantity of pitfalls, so beginners have to use it with caution.

Experienced bonushunters don’t try to win the sticky bonus back, but via this bonus they try to make the mathematical expectation of winning bigger. To simplify, player has $100 deposit and he received a sticky bonus in size of $100. Sp he now owns $200 on his account, then he makes a single bet in a game with almost equal chances, i.e. red and black roulette. If he wins, he gets prize of $400 (100 are still sticky, while 300 are now his). In case the player didn’t use the bonus, his payoff would be only 200 (with the same chances). However, it’s not so easy to do it in real life, because the casino administration know about such type of trick and is inventing more and more subtler restrictions.

In most cases such bonuses are monthly, weekly or even daily. Their existence is depends on the marketing strategy of the exact casino. Sometimes they can be given before the holiday.

Indeed, it’s not a bonus and it can be found not in every casino. Player can get bonus, when he brings other people. Size of such bonus can be very different. In some cases it’s a certain sum, in others it depends on the deposit size of attracted person.

Some referral system offers a percent of money that player has lost. However, you can do both, get money from the casino or owe it…

Using referral system, you can get your bonus after a few conditions, i.e. attracted player has opened a gambling account, put some money on it - these are going to prove his seriousness.
