Bonuses are one of the top draws of any online casino, and it’s no different when you venture into the casino app realm. That’s why each review on Gambling App Store includes details of the mobile casino promotions offered by each casino app, including the sign up and welcome offer.
Mobile casino promotions (also known as casino mobile bonuses) are designed to attract and retain players. They are generally presented as a certain percentage (50%, 100%, etc.), and up to a certain amount (£300, £500, £1000, etc.).
The welcome or sign up bonus is the first bonus you receive when you join a new casino. It is usually what is called a match deposit bonus – that is, you’ll receive the same amount in return for the amount you’ve deposited. So say you are entitled to a 100% up to £500 bonus on your first deposit, and you deposit £500; you’ll get an additional £500 in bonus money, giving you a total of £1000 in your account.
A no deposit bonus is exactly as it sounds. It is a bonus you receive without making a deposit. These are far more rare and are usually reserved for acquisition purposes. For example, some casino apps will offer you £5 free just for signing up. This gives you the ability to gamble for real cash prizes, before you’ve committed any of your own money.
Since online slots play such a central role in mobile gaming, it’s no wonder they’re the focus of so many promotions. Free spin promotions, like any other bonus, will either be based on deposit or available deposit free. A deposit offer would be something like, “Deposit £20 and get 20 free spins”, whilst a no deposit offer would say “Get 20 free spins, no deposit necessary.”
Some bonuses require a promo code (or what may be referred to as a coupon code) in order to be redeemed. This simply means you need to enter the relevant promo code in the casino’s cashier when making a deposit in order to claim the promotion.
Most mobile offers are the same as you’d find on the casino’s regular website. This includes the welcome bonus and free spin offers. Unless otherwise specified, you can generally assume that any offer of an online casino is also relevant for its casino app.
Bonuses come in different formats, each with its own requirements. Generally, in order to claim your casino mobile bonus you will either need to enter the relevant promo code when making a deposit (see above), opt-in (some casinos have CTA buttons for each promotion such as ‘Register now’, ‘Claim my bonus’, etc.), or simply log in.
The truth is, since casino bonuses are such a huge draw and a critical factor in maintaining customer loyalty most casinos have pretty great offers.
Needless to say, all mobile bonuses are applicable on any mobile device including Android smartphones, tablets, iPhones, and iPad play.
