A common feature of online casino and slot gaming, a welcome bonus is a reward given to a new player upon signing up. It may be in the form of money or loyalty points. It can also be in the form of free play in one of the casino’s games.
Most casinos offer welcome bonuses immediately upon signing up; however, it will only be released after funding your account, or playing your first game. A monetary welcome bonus can be in the form of matching your first deposit, or a certain percentage of your first deposit, say 25% or 50%.
