Bonuses based on your deposits, free bets, occasional bonuses - a list of different type of betting promotion have been offered by the bookmakers seem not to have an end to the list. However often You comment or write to us that online bookmaker has cheated You and has not given any promotional funds as mentioned to do so. Sadly, instead blame is to be given to a player, not the bookie, why? As we cited in the title of this post, to do it smoothly, it is worth to read terms and conditions regarding a specific bonus a player take advantage.
On which bonus terms paragraphs shall a player focus on the most?
check if You are eligible for the bonus. In the current times, we live
(used to be different) many bookmakers apply a list of restrictions one
of them is a country restriction, it is good to check if Your country
that You reside in, it is not excluded from the promotion. If yes and

- One crucial factor is a payment option that
You chose to deposit money into your new betting account, check if it
isn’t excluded from getting a bonus. Very often I saw terms mentioning

registration form? Check that one too because sometime later You won't
be able to make any changes, even if You ask support to do so.
You finally decided to deposit and You have done so, and the starting
bonus hasn’t shown at all, maybe there is a time frame that You have to

minimum betting stake, of course, any other points maybe fulfilled too.

before You decide to play because for example after seven days You may
not be able to see it again. There maybe be a deadline to use Your

requirement. What is this? To be able to withdraw bonus amount You have
to stake few times your bonus amount (it maybe 3x times your bonus and
deposit amount, five times just a bonus amount it all depends on a
bookmaker). Before having done this Your bonus cash is locked and can
not be withdrawn.
