Most of the casino bonuses you'll receive will be mostly BS (pardon my French). I have come to realize that the size of the bonus is much less important than the clearing requirements and terms. A 100% match up to $1,000 bonus sounds good but if you only deposit $50, which is wise when dealing with a new casino, you will only receive a $50 bonus. Most online casinos offer un-clearable bonuses. I recall receiving a $500 deposit bonus at this one casino and played there for around 6 months. In that 6 month time frame I made a total of $4,400 worth of deposits. I'm a pretty good player that makes responsible sized bets so I got a lot of playing in. In the end I only cleared $60 of my bonus.
Another type of casino bonus scam is when the casino won't let you make any withdrawal until you've cleared the bonus which in some cases is impossible. We have found a couple of casinos that have found a way to fix these problems without leaving themselves vulnerable to bonus abusers. We have added a detailed review of the deposit bonuses available at our featured online casinos.
