Almost every online casino today offers a number of different cash bonuses to both new & existing players. This could be a matching deposit bonus, a cash back bonus or a no deposit bonus and more often than not, this cash needs to be wagered X amount of times before that players can withdraw any of his or her bonus cash. This is generally referred to as a wagering requirement or playthrough requirement.
Almost all online casino bonuses have these wagering requirements attatched to them, but the amount in which you need to wager can vary a great deal. It is very uncommon for an online casino bonus to have zero wagering requirements, but these bonuses do actually exist and if you can find a casino which offers this particular bonus, consider yourself to be very lucky.
For example, if a casino is offering a $/€/£10.00 no deposit bonus with zero wagering requirements, it means that you could withdraw that $/€/£10.00 straight away. However, with zero wagering requirements, the best thing to do would be to play on a few games to try and win some huge prizes. You could set yourself a target of perhaps $/€/£50.00 and if you happen to reach that target (e.g. $/€/£57.00) you could withdraw the $/€/£50.00 and then leave the remaining $/€/£7.00 in your account for another day.
If you have been offered a 100% matching deposit bonus worth up to $/€/$1,000, it means that you can deposit up to $/€/£1,000 and the casino will match your deposit penny for penny. You might only be able to deposit $/€/£50.00, which means that you would end up with a total of $/€/£100.00 to spend in the casino. This bonus could have a 30x times wagering requirement, which means that you would have to wager $/€/£1,500 (30 x $/€/£50.00) before you could attempt to withdraw any of your bonus winnings.
The bonus terms and conditions may also state that you must wager the bonus amount as well, which means that on top of the $/€/£1,500 that you must wager, you would also have to wager an extra $/€/£50.00 (your initial deposit amount) and this is fairly common at most of today’s online casinos. Once you have completed the wagering requirements, you can withdraw any amount that you have in your account.
Try to remember though that some wagering requirements need to be completed within a certain period of time otherwise your bonus cash will be forfeited. Always read through the casino bonus T’s & C’s before accepting a bonus.

WMS Gaming software can be found at a growing number of fully licensed online casinos such as William Hill Casino, Jackpot Party Casino and Unibet Casino and all of their games are non-downloadable. Some of the very latest games from WMS Gaming in 2014 included a couple of great new slots called Elvis: The King Lives and Zeus lll (Zeus 3).
Zeus 3 is not your average looking slot, but it plays just like any other slot. It has an Ancient Greek/Greek Mythology theme with 6 reels and 192 lines. The leftmost reel, reel 1, is the smallest, containing just 2 positions and as you move towards reel 6, each new reel has one more position than the last, which means that reel 6 contains 7 positions from top to bottom.
When the Zeus Symbols cover an entire reel from top to bottom, that reel will automatically transform into one long Stacked Wild Symbol and this will substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Lightning Scatter Symbols.
When three or more of these Scatter Symbols appear in any position across the reels, a Free Spins Bonus Round will trigger. Up to a maximum of 50 Free Spins will be awarded and if you do happen to be awarded this many spins, you will also receive a bonus cash prize worth 50x times your total bet.
The other new slot from WMS Gaming is called Elvis: The King Lives and this one also has a fairly unique look and feel. It is based on the king of rock & roll and it has 11 reels and 80 winning paylines. The Free Spins Bonus Round on this slot can be triggered in one of two different ways and this great Elvis themed slot also has Stacked Wild Symbols which can help generate huge winning combinations.
The two latest online slots from Rival Gaming included Silver Unicorn and Lost Secret of Atlantis. Both slots have 5 reels, but Silver Unicorn has 20 winning paylines and Lost Secret of Atlantis has 25 paylines. Rival software powers various great sites such as Golden Cherry Casino, Tropezia Palace Casino, Ruby Royal Casino and Pantasia Casino.
These two new Rival Slots both have great second screen bonus rounds which guarantee prizes each time they are triggered. They also both have fantastic graphics and great sound effects for players to enjoy. They are new for January 2014 so they are still not yet widely available but they should become more widely available throughout 2014.

It was recently announced that a total of 11 NetEnt Touch™ mobile casino games had arrived at Ladbrokes Mobile Games and also in the very near future that NetEnt would soon be supplying non-downloadable desktop casino games to Ladbrokes as well.
This means that you can now find software at ladbrokes from various software providers such as OpenBet, Electracade, IGT Interactive, Microgaming, Playtech AND Net Entertainment (NetEnt). NetEnt also recently added one of its most well-known titles, Mega Fortune, onto its mobile casino platform, plus it also launched European Roulette Touch™.
On December 18th NetEnt revealed that the desktop version of Mega Fortune paid out a whopping €2.6M to one extremely lucky player from Finland. The winner was playing at a Finnish online casino called Kolikkopelit.com Casino on Friday December 13th, 2013.
“Kolikkopelit.com is all about entertainment and excitement, and we are really happy that one of our players won the Mega Fortune jackpot,” said the COO of this casino.

In fact, this slot has paid out a staggering €43.6M over the past 12 months alone, making it the hottest slot available online today. Altogether, three NetEnt slots have paid out more than €65.6M between them in 2013.
Playtech is another leading online casino software provider which has recently been in the spotlight. This industry award winning software provider recently announced that it had released all of its Live Dealer Games across all mobile platforms. “I believe this enhanced level of accessibility definitely takes Playtech’s Live games to the next level,” said Playtech’s Head of Live, Aviv Nankin.
He continued, “As the mobile trend continues to grow the ability to tap into this market via both Native and HTML5 platforms provides operators with additional ways to attract and retain players.

Getting Started at Online Casinos
After you’ve chosen the online casino you wish to play at you’ll need to choose whether you’re going to play the download version of the online casino or the no download flash instant play version. It’s our suggestion that you opt for the download option as the games are far superior and overall the quality of the gaming experience is much better.
The next thing you’re going to want to is ensure that you have a valid credit card that you can make deposits with at the online casino (Note: All of the sites we feature here accept Visa, Master Card, Amex (Gold, Black and Regular Amex credit cards) in addition to a number of alternative banking options should you decide to use another method at the casino. Also all of the casinos we’ve featured here on our site have the best processing abilities making it far easier and quicker to make deposits and start playing.
Once you’ve successfully deposited you’ll need to select and choose a game you’d like to start playing and that’s about it. Keep in mind that there’s a huge selection of games typically available online that you can choose from and play so we recommend playing several casino games not just one or two to get experience in several different game types. All of the online casinos offer several online slots, blackjack, video poker, roulette and other game type variations so there’s definitely no shortage of games to choose from and play.
Something to keep in mind is that should you win a sizable jackpot you should definitely consider cashing out and walking away. So many times players will win a nice jackpot and start playing which is a big mistake. Continuing play after a jackpot is won often times leads to players putting their winnings back into the casino so it’s always advised that if you win a good amount that you cash out as soon as you possibly can.
Cashing out your winnings will sometimes depend on their terms and conditions which often time include up 48 plus hour delays in your ability to withdrawal funds from an online casino. It’s always worthwhile to check the “banking options, cashier, or other relevant sections for the terms and conditions of such restrictions so that you’re not all of a sudden freaked out at your inability to withdrawal your funds immediately from the casino.
