bonus terms


Due to bad affiliates, spammers and abuse by marketing firms/affiliates on Social Media the UKGC and ASA have rightly cracked down on misleading and sometimes downright fraudulent advertising in the UK market. These vile (and fake!) stories include players suffering from cancer whose lives changed with big slot wins, players winning impossible amounts for the quoted slot/stake the adverts claim and winning jackpots or betting amounts under an alleged bonus which would not be permitted in the casino bonus terms.

The UKGC is leading the way in weeding out these scumbags and the casinos with UKGC licenses have been instructed to make sure all banners and advertising are compliant along with their affiliates, as you will see fastpayingcasinos is! This is primarily to specify sign-up offers are for new customers only, you must be 18+ to play and a link to a problem gambling help organization as part of the Responsible Gambling campaign and of course, for clarity, a link to their bonus terms or general terms.

Over the coming period casinos accepting UK players will be stopping sub-affiliate programmes  (as these are blamed, falsely or not, for the nonsense mentioned above) and will not pay for traffic from non-compliant sources such as SMS, spam mail, non-approved marketing and editorials. Cut the blood supply off and the parasite dies and finally the casinos have made their affiliate programmes act!

If you are reading this, the chances are that the casino you clicked under has not yet provided their approved bonus terms link to their affiliates yet, but otherwise you will be directed to the casino’s introductory offer or promotion page which has clear directions to all the relevant terms for the bonus before you sign up.

Bonuses are automatically applied in most cases after signing up, some you can choose to enter a code during sign-up to claim them and rarely with some you need to contact Customer Service to claim afterwards – if that’s the case do this before you start playing! Automatic bonuses are discouraged nowadays and should you be given one you don’t want, contact CS before you play to have the bonus removed! All reputable casinos will do so.

The terms will exclude certain games which ‘bank’ rewards such as The Wishmaster or Super Monopoly Money, some will only contribute 20 or 50% to wagering if they have a very high RTP figure such as Bloodsuckers or 1429 Uncharted Seas. Your maximum bet including the double-up gamble will be limited too so it’s vital you read the bonus terms. Bonus disputes account for over 60% of casino complaints and arbitration!

Gamble responsibly and enjoy playing your bonus if you take one. Good Luck!
