The Changing Face of Casino Bonuses in 2017

What Casino Bonuses Should You Consider?

The world of casino bonuses really hasn't changed all that much in the last 20 years or so since the first online casinos were launched in the late 1990s, and we still have a very similar format of most bonuses at casinos today, you could say it's an area that there really hasn't been masses of innovation, but that is really beginning to change, mainly due to market and regulatory pressures.

Casino Welcome Bonuses

casino welcome bonus is usually presented in the format of X% up to £X where the first element represents a % that the casino will match on your deposit and the second element is the maximum bonus amount the casino will offer you. One thing to note though is that hese forms of bonuses come with a plethora of terms and conditions attached including the dreaded wagering requirements which quite often are something like 50x the bonus amount. For example, on a 100% up to £200 match bonus you would have to wager £10,000 to clear the bonus requirements (£200 max bonus x 50 wagering requirements) and be able to withdraw any money. However, that is all beginning to change due to both innovation and pressure from regulators and now there are now a couple of casinos, and, that are offering welcome bonuses that offer free spins on first deposit, with no wagering requirements attached to them, enabling players to have the freedom to deposit and withdraw as much as they like with no interference from the bonus offer terms.

No Deposit Bonuses

In the late 1990s and 2000s many casinos tempted players to try their casinos with the offer of free money without depositing any of your own hard-earned cash, and in more recent times as the functionality became available these no deposit offers have more commonly come in the form of free spins on a slot or range of slots. These types of offers are very likely to continue as well, but much like welcome bonuses the likelihood is that the number of free spins, or no deposit bonus amount will decrease as they are likely to become an offer with no, or limited wagering requirements attached to them as well.

What Else Is Likely?

I think it's safe to say that in the next 12 months there will be some huge changes in the world of casino bonuses and other than the things discussed above there are very likely to be many more new and interesting types of bonuses being concocted by casinos to gain a competitive edge. What these innovations are likely to be is anyone's guess but as we have seen in recent times the creativity is certainly moving at a pace in what is a very dynamic industry.
