The Cool Cat Guide to Casino Bonuses
Feeling a bit confused by the wide array of online casino bonus offers available at Cool Cat Casino? What to know which casino bonus codes are right for you? Uncertain by the difference between deposit bonuses, no deposit bonuses, match bonuses, free spins, free chips and more? Well, your worries are over. For those of you who are new to casino bonuses, and want to know exactly what you’re getting into, to old hands still uncertain about the subtle differences between bonus offers, we’ve put together this quick guide to all the best online casino bonuses you’ll find here at CoolCat Casino every day!
Deposit Bonus – As the mainstay of casino bonuses, online casino deposit bonuses have long been the casino’s favorite way to encourage both new and returning players to step onto the casino floor. The basic idea is really simple, make a deposit, usually defined as a set amount, say $30, or more, and get a reward in the form of a bonus (either cash or free spins).
Now the thing about deposit bonuses, as opposed to no deposit bonuses (see more on that below) is that they actually come in many shapes and forms, including match bonuses, free spins and free chips. For example, a deposit bonus that’s a match bonus means Cool Cat Casino will give you an amount equal or greater to your deposit, free to play with under certain terms and conditions. By way of example, say the offer is $150 deposit bonus on slots and keno, with the requirement being a deposit of $50 or more. So you deposit $50, you get an additional $150 in your account to play with on slots and keno. It’s that simple. A deposit bonus can turn your $50 into $200 at the click of a button.
Most online casino Welcome Bonuses are a form of deposit bonus, meaning because you’re new to the casino, as a way to greet you and get you off to a good start having fun on the casino floor, we here at CoolCat craft specific offers to welcome new players, what we in the industry call casino sign up bonuses. These are designed to reward you for making the first deposit and vary by season and how busy the casino floor is – like any sort of retail establishment if too many people are window shopping but not actually stepping into the store, we here at Cool Cat have to head out and offer amazing deals to get new people in the door, which is the raison d’etre of the Welcome Bonus.
Match Bonus – A match bonus, much like a deposit bonus, requires you to deposit a certain amount, which Cool Cat will then match up to a certain percent. Let’s say, by way of example, you deposit $100 on a 300% match bonus. That means Cool Cat will give you 300% of your initial deposit, so in the end, you’ll have $400 to play with and win. Not a bad deal, eh?
Match bonuses are largely designed to keep existing players interested in having fun on the casino floor at Cool Cat. At peak seasons, when the competition is highest, like a fire sale or Black Friday, instead of offering the best discounts, we offer the best bonus benefits, i.e. amounts of free cash to ensure players are having a blast at Cool Cat Casino and not interested in heading down the street to play somewhere else.
Better yet, many match bonuses can be applied over multiple deposits, meaning they’re not just a one-time deal. For example, say you get a 100% match bonus offer up to $1000 on any deposit of $30 or more. Deposit once, you get an additional $30 to play with for a total of $60. Keep depositing and Cool Cat will keep matching your deposit up to a total of $1000 in free money! Obviously, at some point we have to put a lid on things, we can’t just keep giving away money forever, but you get the gist. The more you deposit to play the more we here at Cool Cat Casino are willing to give away!
No Deposit Bonus – The no deposit bonus has long been looked at as the creme de la creme of casino bonuses for oh, so many reasons. Basically, no deposit bonuses are the Cool Cat Casino equivalent of completely free money. That’s right, you heard me, FREE MONEY. A no deposit bonus means you put no cash down upfront. Get it? No deposit required! We just give you free money to play with and win. Talk about a happy day! Obviously, as with all casino bonuses, rules and restrictions do apply but the no deposit bonus has long been seen as the cat’s pajamas of casino bonuses, as you get the possibility of fantastic, real cash rewards with no risk at all. I mean really, what could be better? Cool Cats think no deposit bonuses are simply purrrrfect!
