Most modern online casinos offer deposit bonuses to new and regular customers. They seem particularly tempting - just open the user account and make the first deposit. Often, these bonuses are given to the first few deposits and their total amount can reach several thousand dollars.
However we strongly recommend readers of Casinoz to carefully study the rules for calculating and wagering bonuses before submitting a request for them.
Moreover, you should learn to calculate whether the bonus is really beneficial to the player or the casino has a certain percentage of mathematical advantage in it.
It may seem that this is a very difficult task, but in the reality, it is exactly the opposite. Almost any player can figure out whether it makes sense to take a particular bonus. We will teach you how to determine their real value.
The first thing you should pay attention to in the rules is the option to withdraw bonus after satisfying wagering conditions. The reason is that some bonuses are available only to play at this amount and not withdrawn from your account after you've finished wagering. Such bonuses do not deserve your attention.
Look for bonuses that are allowed to be withdrawn, although they are not easy to get as any casino does not give up. You will have to make bets in the amount that would exceed the bonus a few dozen times.
Then read conditions of wagering. Keep in mind that in some cases you only should win back the bonus, while in others- both your deposit and bonus. If course, the first is better.
Next, look at what games where you are allowed to wager bonus. Of course, it should be a model with a minimal advantage if the casino. Ideally, blackjack, video poker, French roulette, craps, and so on. But make no mistake about this. Almost all casino games exclude them from the list of games for wagering or set off to wager a small portion of bets (50%, 30%, 20% or even 2%).
Note that even bets for money (eg, video slots) are generally prohibited when wagering.
When you find the best game, count your theoretical loss at wagering under the conditions and compare them with the bonus amount. In practice, it looks like this.
Let's say you have a 100% bonus and you should win it back thirty times. If you are depositing a hundred dollars, you will be charged for another hundred. To get it, you need to make bets of a three thousand (100x30 = 3000).
Let's assume that the best game where you can win back the bonus is a slot machine with a return of 97.5%. This means that out of one hundred dollars bet in this video slot, you will lose $2.5. Consequently, you will lose $25 in one thousand and in three thousand - $75.
It turns out that thus is only theoretically beneficial bonus because out if one hundred dollars you will get only seventy five (once again, it is in theory, in practice, because you can lose less or more, an win).
Unfortunately, not all manufacturers provide information on the mathematical advantage in their games. However in games such as roulette, blackjack or craps you can see it yourself. For example, in different versions of blackjack, it is calculated using special software and in roulette it remains unchanged for all classical models.
Now you know how to determine the true value of bonuses and make correct decisions in each case.
