What is a Match Bonus?

Dear Vera,

I was browsing the internet the other day and I was bored.  On impulse, I decided I’d take a shot at this online casino thing – I was really in the mood for a game of poker (I’m a Texas Hold ‘Em kind of gal).  When I’d registered with the account the casino offered me a match bonus.  I got so flustered – it seemed too good to be true.  I believe in blessings darling but this?  The casino was just giving me money but this seemed too good to be true?  Tell me Vera, is it?



Dear Flustered,

Well, I can imagine it must seem overwhelming, but the fact is the casino was indeed trying to give you money.   A match bonus is when the casino will match your deposit according to a particular percentage (usually up to a certain limit).  Although, this giving away of money does usually come with conditions.

Usually a casino will dictate that a player will have to wager the money a certain amount of times before they can withdraw it – this is often 20 or 30 times.  So yes, Flustered, I think you are right in feeling a little overwhelmed as this is quite a big commitment.  Obviously, if you turn a profit with the cash, you could win big – but you are wise to think twice.

Good luck!
