Knowledge is Power: Make sure that you know as much as you can about the online casino before you start playing. Most importantly, you need to be aware of its general playing ‘Terms and Conditions’, as well as the rules. At certain casinos, you will find that the Terms and Conditions are also divided into two sections – General and Promotional. Needless to say, you have to read both very well. It is very important to note things such as the minimum wagering requirements, as well as the games that are included (and those that are not!) in the bonus terms.
Take a Screenshot: A good tip is to take a screenshot of the Terms and Conditions of the bonus. This can be done by pressing the Alt and PrntScn keys from your PC keyboard (as long as the Terms and Conditions are the primary window open on the screen). Make sure that the current date is visible on the screen (by moving the cursor over the date field on your screen until it pops up). Once you have a screenshot, all you need to do is save it into a document of your choice and you have solid proof regarding the Terms and Conditions that pertained to a particular bonus on that specific date.
Scan those Documents: Most online casinos will request some kind of identification at one time or another, usually in the form of a utility bill or driver’s license. You can easily scan the documents and file them away in a document, ready to send to whichever casino requires them. The casino is only interested in your physical address, so black out any account numbers if you so wish. This is a simple way to send online casinos the information they need quickly and efficiently.
Keep Records: It is important to have a record of all the deposit and withdrawals that you make at each online casino. If you are lucky enough to win at the online casino, keeping records will help you keep track of who owes you money and when the payment is due. It is a known fact that payouts can take anything from a few days to a few weeks to reach their final destination, depending on which type of bonus was used. To save yourself some serious hassles in the future, keep a good record of all your transactions.
Deposit Wisely: Keeping within your budget, make your deposit to maximize the bonus.
Withdraw Wisely: If you find yourself with credits in your online casino account after you have completed the wagering requirements of a specific bonus, don’t hesitate to withdraw your funds – even if it’s only a partial withdrawal. You don’t want to be one of those people who thought that their winning streak would last forever and that they were invincible at online casinos!
