Match Bonus

A match bonus means that the casino will match your deposit with the same amount as your deposit. It is very common for online casinos to offer new customers match bonuses in order to make them depositing customers playing with real money. Match Bonuses are usually also called Deposit Bonus so if you see a casino offers that, you know that it is the same as a match bonus.

If you are registered at an online casino you will most likely get e-mails with special offers, such as e.g. match bonuses. I you´d like to add some excitement and start to play for real money then you should accept the offer.

How does a match bonus work?

Usually, online casinos offer 100% match bonus up to €100. It is meant is that the casino will match and put the same amount, ie 100% of the amount that you deposit at the casino. If your deposit is €20, the casino will also deposit €20 to your account. Hence after your deposit and the casino match bonus you will have €40 to play for at the casino.
Usually, the casino has a limit on how much money you can get the match bonus. This is what the casino refers to when writing “up to €100 “. If you deposit €150 the casino will not give €150 in matching bonus, but €100. That´s why its important to know what the match bonus limit is before you make a deposit in order to calculate how big your deposit should be and how much money you will have in your account after your deposit.

Match Bonus on First Deposit

A match bonus of 100% is quite costly for an online casino to provide. That´s why, usually only the first deposit is a 100% match bonus. After that no bonus will be given or perhaps a smaller bonus at 50%. But also a 50% match bonus is a really good deal – it means that the casino will deposit €25 extra on your account if you make a deposit of €50. So keep an eye out for the match bonuses offered on your subsequent deposits.

Many online casinos quite often have special offers where they give a matching bonus to all players regardless of how many deposits they have made. This is generally associated with bonus programs or to celebrate something.

Turnover Requirements for a match bonus

In order to collect any winnings after receiving a match bonus at an online casino the player must first meet something called a turnover requirement. If you did not receive a match bonus, and only played with your own money there is no turnover requirement. Turnover requirements for casino bonuses vary widely between different casinos, usually the wagering limit varies between 25 and 50 times the bonus amount. That is, if a bonus is €10 and the wagering requirement is 25 times you need to have had a turnaround of €25 at the casino before you can withdraw the money. Turnaround simply means that you should have played for €25 at the casino.
