Online casinos offer Welcome and Start-up bonuses to attract players. These usually involve the match of all money deposited, but there are plenty of rules to follow. Make sure you read the fine print under the Promotions tab before you deposit and start play!
In the case of Buzzluck, the most popular bonus is a 100% match up to €/$500. The deposit and bonus must be wagered a total of 25-times (sometimes called the rollover amount) before you can cash anything out of your account. In addition, the bonus amount is non-redeemable. This is sometimes called a sticky bonus (or ghost bonus) because it either sticks in your account or disappears when you go to cash out.
Currently this excellent bonus allows you to play all games, however they do not all contribute the same amount to your rollover. For example, a €/$100 deposit gets a €/$100 match and the player has $200 to gamble with. This amount must be played-through in wagers 25-times for a total of $5000.
Current promotion rules state that in the case of Slots, Video Slots, Keno and Scratch Cards, the rate is 100%. However, Casino poker games only contribute at a rate of 25%; Video Poker at a rate of 20%, and games like Blackjack, War, Baccarat, Craps and Sic Bo contribute at just 10%. However, not all games are available at this time.
There is no maximum cash-out on the welcome bonus.
Some online casinos offer free points or complementary play for your patronage. At Buzzluck, comp points are earned (after any bonuses are cleared) at the rate of 1 point for every $10 in wagers. It takes a minimum of 100 points to convert to cash – at the rate of $1 per 100. There are occasional specials where the earn-rate is double or triple, so keep your eyes open.
