How to Really Get the Most Out of Your New Player Welcome Bonus

April 21, 2016

When you register a real money account at any of our top-rated Microgaming casinos you can claim some kind of guaranteed new player welcome bonus and this bonus cash can usually claimed when you make your first ever deposit. If you claim a 100% matching deposit bonus worth up to AU$500, it means that the casino operator will match your deposit, dollar-for-dollar, up to the value of AU$500.

Therefore you can double up on your first ever deposit thanks to the 100% match bonus. This is one of the most common types of bonus that you can claim as a new player, but the amount that you can claim can vary a great deal from one Australian online casino to the next. For example some online casinos could be offering a 100% match bonus worth up to AU$100 and others could be offering new players a 100% match bonus worth up to AU$1,000 or more.

The best thing to do would be to deposit as much as you can afford and NEVER deposit more than you can afford. You should also never deposit more than the bonus is worth because you won’t receive any more free cash. For example, if the 100% match bonus is worth up to AU$100, don’t deposit AU$500 because you will only receive up to AU$100 in free bonus cash. The minimum deposit at most online casinos today is usually anywhere from AU$5.00 to AU$20.00.

You will also be required to complete wagering requirements before a withdrawal is possible and you generally need to wager anywhere from 20x times the bonus amount up to usually no more than 60x times the bonus amount. The lower the wagering requirement, the better it is for you and the quicker you will be able to complete them. You will also find that not all games will help contribute towards completing your wagering requirements.

It is usually games like the pokies (classic pokies and video pokies), instant win games (scratchcards and arcade games) and also several other lottery style games such as keno and most bingo varieties that will contribute 100% towards completing your wagering requirements, whereas games like video poker, blackjack and roulette may only contribute as little as 1.00% up to a maximum of 10.00% towards completing them. Therefore you should stick to playing on the pokies to complete your wagering requirements in as little time as possible.
