South African Online Casinos Offer Big Bonuses

south african bonuses online casinosOctober 12 - After a particularly chilly winter jam-packed with hours of annoying load shedding, South Africans can finally enjoy a well deserved sizzler of summer by the pool, by the beach, by the dam or logged on to their favourite South African online casinos, which are always trying to outdo each other in the big South African casino bonus stakes, regardless of their Rand casino software.

It is no secret that online casinos the world over offer the most lucrative and generous promotions they can to attract new players and retain existing ones, and South African casinos online are certainly no different. This is great news for you because you can pump up your real money playing funds just by depositing.

The way Rand online casino bonuses work is that they allow you the opportunity to add to your deposited playing funds by a specified percentage up to a maximum specified amount. Bonuses aimed at new or first time depositing players are called Deposit, Welcome, Matching or Signup Bonuses and are usually very generous.

SA Casino Welcome Bonuses

Welcome Bonuses are very simple to claim and use. Once you have made a deposit using one of the safe, trusted and secure banking methods offered by your chosen online Rand casino, you're given the option to claim your free Welcome Bonus. If you claim, your account will be credited with your deposit plus your bonus cash.

In SA land casinos, most floor managers have the power to reward your loyalty and continued support by offering you 'comps' in the form of free hotel rooms or suites, tickets for shows and/or sports events, restaurant vouchers and so on, but things work very differently in Rand online casinos as they are virtual entities.

With no rooms, meals, shows or events to comp, online casinos have to turn to the one thing they know players love - free bonus cash, which they're only too happy to give you as a new or existing player up front. Take Silver Sands online casino, which is currently offering all new players an impressive R8,888 Deposit Bonus.

Silver Sands Casino's Welcome Bonus offer is actually split into 3 parts as it works with your first 3 deposits. With your 1st deposit you can claim a 100% bonus of up to R1,888 free, with your 2nd deposit you can claim a 75% bonus of up to R3,000 free, and with your 3rd deposit you can claim a 50% bonus up to R4,000.

Rand Bonuses Come With Ts&Cs

Although you do not have to claim the maximum Matching Bonus each time, if you want to ensure you get the 'maximum casino bonus bang for your Rand casino buck,' it makes sense to take advantage of every free cent you're offered. The obvious benefit of claiming a Sign Up Bonus is to up your playing funds for free.

The one thing you need to remember about Welcome Bonuses, all online casino bonus offers in fact, is that they come attached with a list of terms and conditions, which you should always read and understand before you choose to claim a bonus. These Ts&Cs dictate the bonus wagering and play through requirements.

In other words, how many times you are required to play through your deposited funds plus your bonus cash before you are allowed to bank and withdraw any winnings. The reason casino bonuses have these requirements is to deter 'bonus hunters', who only sign up at ZAR online casinos to claim the free bonus offers.

While online casinos in Rand are generally generous to a tee when it comes to dishing out free bonus cash, they only want to dish it out to serious online casino fans and not time wasters. Rest assured, however, that if you're a serious player, you'll find online casinos only too eager to reward you with free bonus money.

Look Out for SA Reload Bonuses

But what happens once you've used up your big South African online casino bonuses? Reload Bonuses, that's what. The majority of online casinos offer some form of Reload Bonuses which are essentially bonus offers open to all existing real money players, unlike Welcome Bonus offers that are solely for new players.

Usually listed under a casinos 'Bonuses' or 'Promotions' page, Reload Bonus offers vary from casino to casino and in generosity, but what they all have in common is that they represent free real bonus cash. Using Silver Sands Casino once again as an example, it has a wide range of reload bonuses you can choose from.

Cash Back Monday is Silver Sands' way for you to kick 'Monday blues' to the curb, because when you deposit R1,000 or more on a Monday, you'll get a 40% casino bonus on that and all subsequent online casino deposits you make. And the 'Reload Bonus Bonanza' doesn't end there at Silver Sands Rand casino online.

Wednesdays are 'Crazy' at Silver Sands, where as a registered real money accountholder you'll automatically be issued with two generous bonus coupons for you to redeem, and top up your casino coffer. Thunder Thursday at Silver Sands is another opportunity for you to generate free money before Friday's bold bonuses.

We Have The Biggest Bonus Casinos

Although we've used bonuses from Silver Sands Casino to demonstrate the generosity of South African online casinos, there are plenty of other top Rand online casinos with silver trays full of bonuses. Consider Casino Cruise with its R33,000 casino bonus offer.
