What Reload Bonuses Better To Avoid
As any other casino bonuses offered to you, you are free to choose and proceed without them if you feel you do not like the offer. Reload bonuses are not created equal, and an attractive promotion may turn out not so attractive as soon as you dive into the rules applied to it.
The rules described above discuss some of the key aspects that should be paid attention to when choosing a reload bonus. By assessing the offer using these criteria, you are more likely to evaluate the real possible perks - or their absence - and make informed decisions about whether to invest your money into this promo or not.
However, there are also certain cases where additional weird rules can be applied to the promotion offered to you by the casino, and these are discussed below. Make sure you read all the information about reloads you can find - the Promotions page, the FAQ page, general Terms and Conditions page, etc. - including fine print, to ensure you avoid the most nasty promotions some online casinos happen to offer.
High Wagering Requirements
At the time of writing, average wagering requirements applied by the majority of online casinos to their deposit-based bonuses vary from x30 to x45 the sum of the bonus.
Therefore, if you face higher wagering, ask yourself if the bonus is worth it. Now, there is a catch here - sometimes, you can find x20 or x25 wagering, but these are no good, either, because most likely, these apply to the deposit and bonus, together, which makes a bigger sum.
Therefore, it is harder to wager through the bonus, and therefore, maybe you do not want it.
This is a rare case with reloads, but you still have to be aware of the danger of sticky bonuses. Remember that no body of the bonus can ever be withdrawn, except cashbacks - you can only withdraw the winnings associated with wagering a particular bonus (or winnings got by betting your own deposit).
However, when a bonus is sticky, it does not allow you to withdraw the winnings, too - they are forever left on the bonus balance, just for the sake of playing for entertainment. This is called a sticky bonus, and it should be avoided because it brings zero benefit to you.
Terms and Conditions is a lengthy page with a wall of text that seems too boring to read, however, it lists all the rules and conditions that will be applied to your personal data, money, and winnings.
T&C also contain bonus terms, and this is what you must pay attention to when deciding if you want this or that reload promotion. If you see that the rules are cloudy, or you feel they are not really fair, better avoid the promotion altogether.
