About Online Casino Bonuses and how they Work

As a New Zealand player you can visit an online casino today and you will be able to benefit from several great online casino bonuses (also known as online casino promotions). The most common of all online casino bonuses is the new player welcome bonus / sign up bonus. When you make your first ever deposit, the casino will generally match what you deposit.

For example, if you have found an online casino which is offering each new player a 100% matching deposit bonus worth up to the value of NZ$500, it means that whatever you deposit (up to NZ$500), the casino will match your deposit. If you deposit just NZ$50, the casino will give you an extra NZ$50 on top of your deposit. If you deposit NZ$150, the casino will give you an extra NZ$150, and so on.

This welcome bonus is also commonly referred to as a Deposit Bonus. The No Deposit bonuses are basically free cash bonuses which are dropped in to your account (either as a new player or as an existing member) and you don’t need to make a deposit to receive this particular bonus, hence the name ‘No Deposit Bonus’.

Other types of online casino bonuses that you can now find include Cashback Bonuses, Anniversary Bonuses, Refer-a-Friend Bonuses, Alternative Payment Method Bonuses, Free Spins Bonuses, Prize Draw Bonuses and much more. These promotional offers tend to have an expiry date which is why they are always worth taking advantage as soon as you can and before you miss out.

The other thing that you must be aware of with many of today’s online casino bonuses is that they usually come with wagering requirements (aka playthrough requirements). If the bonus has a 20x times playthrough requirement, it means that if you deposited NZ$20, you would have to wager a total of NAZ$400 (20x NZ$20) before you could cash out. Sometimes you also have to wager the deposit amount as well. In this case you would have to wager NZ$420.
