"How much does 'free' money cost?
Online casinos offer various types of bonuses to new players – free spins, one hour free play, 100% match, 200% match, sign-up bonus – but whatever type of casino bonus is on offer it eventually comes to a point where you have to release a sum of money from the bonus account into your real money account. And this is where it starts to cost.
In order to 'unlock' the bonus amount, you'll have to wager i.e., risk some of your own money - often many times more than the bonus is worth. It's all stated quite clearly in the bonus terms and conditions, but it's not always as easy to understand as you might like.
It's important to remember that you don't have to take out a bonus in order to play at any online casino. But if you do, make sure you know exactly what's required of you - before you start to play!"
