A ‘Cash Match’ is the type of bonus you’ll see advertised most often online. The promotion typically works like this: Deposit and spend £30 of your money with an online casino, and you receive an additional credit of £30, giving you a total of £60 to play the casinos games.
The amounts involved in a ‘Cash Match’ deal will vary from casino to casino. However, most websites cap the amount that can be matched. For instance, the maximum deposit match could be limited to £100.
It’s highly likely that any ‘Cash Match’ you get will come with many restrictions. You won’t be allowed to withdraw the bonus straight back into your bank account for instance. The casino could require you to risk the bonus cash several times before releasing it for withdrawal. They might even make you wager the money you’ve won with bonus cash multiple times before allowing withdrawal. These minimum wager requirements can range from 2x to 200x the bonus amount. Obviously, the lower number of times you have to wager the bonus, the better it is for you.
In general, the ‘Cash Match’ is a fair deal for the casino and new customer. You give a little, and you get a little. The important thing you need to watch with this type of deal is the ‘wagering requirement’. Check that the casino isn’t requiring you to play the bonus amount a ludicrous number of times before you sign up.
