The gambling industry has gone through a lot of reforms recently and as part of this, there has been a big focus in supporting people who have potentially picked up some bad gambling habits.

This has been welcomed by communities to ensure there are some education and control in place. There have been a number of millionaires made from these sites where they have scooped a massive jackpot win. Even when playing a 1p slot game, you are eligible to win some really serious jackpot money (over a million pounds per spin). Often, however, the best way to do well at casino sites is to use casino bonuses. Read on to learn more about how casino bonuses work.

Comparison Sites

There are now literally hundreds of UK slot sites on the web so how do you know which one is the best site and which one is offering the best bonuses? There are a number of comparison sites that are a good source of information and they will advertise the best online slot bonuses that are around on the web. Generally, this library of information will have the majority of the sites around and give you a balanced view of the different sites. This will then allow for people looking to join a site to make an informed decision.

Welcome Bonuses

With the welcome offer, this will normally be accompanied by some sort of free gift. These range from vouchers, free spins, or free bonus money. In order to find online slot bonuses, make sure you search the catalogue of sites and look for the best offer.

A great example of how these freebies work for new players is a cash match bonus. Some of these sites will offer say a 200% cash match. This will mean that for an initial deposit of say £10, you will receive a bonus of £20 giving you a grand total of £30 to play with. As such, effectively they are giving you free money! There are a few things to look out for with these types of offers which will be detailed in the terms and conditions. This will include potential maximum wins connected to the free welcome money (sometimes this is capped) or sometimes wagering requirements. This will mean that you have to effectively turn over the bonus amount the defined number of times that is defined. Sometimes this is small like x2 but other times this can be quite high (up to x50). As a result, do not rush into joining the site until you have read the differences in the terms and conditions around this.

Re-Deposit Offers

It is common for players to receive re-deposit offers from the site. This is generally quite random and there is no specific reasoning for this (although at periods such as Easter or Christmas you will sometimes find an increase in activity). These re-deposit offers are generally similar to the welcome offer and you will receive free cash matches or spins for slots when you make a re-deposit. In order to make sure that you do not miss out on any of these offers that are active be sure to check your emails regularly as this is generally the most common way that players will receive this information. Be sure to check the junk filters also as sometimes these could make their way into this email folder.

Jackpot Bonuses

Most slot games will have literally hundreds of slots to choose from. This will include slots from all different developers and themes. They are generally pretty easy to use and the most you will need to do with most of them is press the “spin” button. Within the site lobby, you will normally see “jackpot slots” as an option. This is where the big money is and if you managed to scoop one of these then you will be smiling all the way to the bank. Some of these jackpots are paid out more regularly and could be a few thousand pounds but others will go up to and over a million pounds. The good thing about these is that even if you are playing for the minimum stake defined by that slot, you still have as much as chance as everyone else to bag the winnings. There is no skill or technique involved and the winners of the jackpots are completely random.


Having a go at playing online slots, could be something that could earn you some extra cash. Be sure to maximise the welcome offer and re-deposit bonuses. In addition, if you are looking for that “big win”, choose your game wisely. Be sure to read all the terms and conditions connected to these as they will differ for each site.
