As you probably know, land based casinos give their customers different complimentary things to make them happy and keep them playing today and in the future. It starts off with the free drinks and snacks on the casino floor, goes on to free meals, hotel rooms, valet parking, VIP membership points which give benefits every visit and many other tricks we all know about but still love.
Best casino online will do the same, with one difference. Because you, the player, is usually sitting in the comfort of your home in your slippers in front of your computer, giving you a free hotel room won’t do, will it? Instead they give players extra money to play with either as a standard offered to all players, all the time, one off promotions due to some event or holiday (The Olympic games, Christmas & Halloween are good examples) and lastly there are promotions based on the customers VIP level, or in other words, good customers get better bonuses.
Online casinos try to keep a steady stream of players coming to their properties and like in most other industries will make an extra effort to encourage players to play at time slots or specific periods of the year when traffic is down. The way they can do this is by offering special bonuses and promotions which you can claim at a specific time only. The rationale behind this is that the best gamblers are normative people who gamble regularly, on a daily or weekly basis (even if they aren’t high rollers). If there is a change in routine, or a holiday/event of some sort they will not play.
The main down periods when the most attractive bonuses and promos are offered by online casinos are Sundays (or weekends in general), Summertime (August especially), national holidays such as Memorial day (in the US), Halloween, Bank Holidays (UK), religious holidays such as Christmas and Easter, major sports events (Olympic games, World Cup, UEFA finals etc) and generally any event or day in which people will tend to be away from their computers and out and about. So now you know that its important to take into consideration the time of year and whether there’s anything more attractive going on in the real world which can move you away from your computer.
You can opt to accept bonuses and you can also request not to receive them. Usually the default option is to receive, so if you don’t want to receive, make sure you tick the right box and/or notify online player support.
