What is a welcome bonus?

A welcome bonus is one or more bonuses awarded to new players when they first deposit at an online casino. This might apply to just the first deposit, but it can stretch over several consecutive deposits.

Players may be awarded a bonus match of their deposit, which will increase their bankroll by a set percentage and up to a specified limit. Online casinos will display their welcome bonuses prominently, however it is in a player’s interest to read the fine print in the terms and conditions to find out the details.
