In order to make your gambling experience unforgettable, casinos give away a number of incentives known as online casino bonuses to pique your interest and make you come back to their sites for more gaming sessions. 

Here at Chipy, we pride ourselves in hosting the biggest collection of online casino bonuses on the market, updated daily with unique exclusive bonus deals specially designed and mastered for our players. 

The benefits of using bonuses at online casinos

Here are some of the benefits of using casino bonuses: 

  • Trying new casinos for free without risking real money;
  • Playing with a large balance even when you’re on a budget;
  • Allowing you to extend your gameplay without additional costs.

Types of Online Casino Bonuses

In the following section, you will learn more about all the different types of casino bonuses that can be found in our bonus blog section:

No Deposit Bonuses

Just as the name suggests, no deposit bonuses are a type of online casino promotion that consists of a small bundle of bonus funds that require no deposit beforehand. Essentially, redeeming this bonus gives you an amount of free cash to play with in order to help you get your online gambling journey started. 

Types of Free Bonuses

Down below, we have listed the three main types of free casino bonuses, for your convenience:

  • No Deposit Bonus/Free Chip: This is one of the most popular free bonus types among players. When awarded the free chip bonus, you will get a nominal amount of bonus cash.
  • Free Spins (aka Bonus Spins): Equally popular among free bonus types, the free spins bonus grants players a determined number of free spins that they can use on certain slot games, without the requirement of depositing real money.
  • Free Play: Last but not least, if you claim the free play bonus you will get a certain amount of money to wager in a limited timeframe (usually 1 hour). When the time is up, you will be required to deposit money in order to keep playing. This particular requirement makes the free play bonus less popular than its previously mentioned counterparts.
Deposit Bonuses

The deposit bonus is a kind of casino bonus that online casinos are offering to their players in order to persuade them to make a deposit. Usually, the deposit bonus is a percentage of the initial deposit made by the players and added to their casino accounts.

When you claim a deposit bonus, the casino will match up your deposit to the % expressed with the bonus, allowing you to play with your new balance immediately.

Types of deposit bonuses

  • First deposit bonus (also known as a welcome bonus): The first deposit bonus is the deposit bonus you get on your first deposit, which will give you more credit to play with before you have even placed your first bet. 
  • The match bonus: This means that the online casino will "match" your deposit with a bonus. The amount you will get is usually a 100% match, 50%, and even 10%. After making your deposit, the match bonus money will go straight to your casino account. 
Cashback Bonuses

Most players are very fond of this type of online casino bonus for one particular reason - they refund a percentage of your net losses over a certain period of time. By claiming a cashback casino bonus, you earn back a percentage of your loss in the form of a cashback rebate issued by the casino directly, or a third party. 


A casino tournament is an event hosted by an online casino where gamblers can play against each other by betting real money on a selection of games, with the purpose of winning the big prize. After you choose a tournament you want to compete in, you should check out our compelling casino tournament bonuses, for new players and account holders alike.

Online Casino Bonuses Most Common Restrictions

Down below, we have listed the most common terms and conditions you will come across while playing at online casinos.

  • Country restrictions

Some online casinos have restrictions inflicted on certain countries, which simply means that you are not allowed to sign up, because your country is restricted from playing at that casino. What is more, certain countries are restricted from receiving a bonus at any given casino. Your country may not appear as a 'restricted country' for playing at a casino, but you may not be allowed to claim certain casino bonuses.

  • Wagering requirements 

In general, casino bonuses come with wagering requirements that dictate how much you have to bet (wager) before you are able to collect any winnings. Some promotions consist of no wagering bonuses that allow you to withdraw right away, while others have a multiplier that can be as high as 100. Check out our no wagering casino bonuses page, where you will find the most common types of no wagering casino bonuses that online casinos are offering to new and veteran players alike, in order to help them keep their winnings.

  • Games restrictions

Some casinos inflict restrictions on casino bonuses for certain games or types of games. This is mostly applicable to slot games, so you should make sure which games are allowed before starting to play. Otherwise, the casino can void your winnings for breaching the bonus terms.

  • Maximum bet sizes

This is a bet restriction that you will notice when you are playing with an active bonus, and it means that you are not allowed to bet over a certain amount. If you go over this determined amount, you will be in breach of the casino’s rules and risking voiding your winnings along with your bonus.

  • Maximum cash out

You will notice that some casino bonus promotions come with this demand, and it means that you can withdraw a limited amount of money from a certain bonus if you win. The max cash out can be set at $50, or even $500, while some bonuses don’t have one. The higher the limit is the more money you are able to withdraw. 

  • Time limit (availability period)

Usually, you will be given a time frame of 60 minutes to spend your casino bonuses. After that time has passed, you will be able to keep your winnings. Some casinos set restrictions and place a limit on the amount that can be withdrawn.
