What does the ‘Match’ part mean?
Whenever an online casino wants to ‘match’ your deposit, it basically wants to give you a bonus that is a portion of your deposit amount. For example, if you deposit $100 in order to activate your 100% Match Bonus, you will receive additional $100 as bonus money which you can use to play online casino games on the site. If you deposit $100 to activate your 50% Match Bonus, the casino will give you $50 IN Bonus coins, matching your deposit at a rate of 50%.
What does the ‘up to’ part mean?
Every casino deposit bonus has upper limits. Without these, bonuses would be too good to be true, and casinos would probably go bankrupt in a day. Therefore, the ‘up to’ part is the limit imposed by a casino, indicating the maximum amount of money that they are willing to give you when you make a deposit.
When you see ‘up to $1000’ in a promotion, it means anything over that amount won’t get a match deposit. So if the bonus is ‘%50 up to $500’, for example, and you deposit $600, you’ll still only receive the maximum $250 bonus as if you deposited $500. In that case, you would have your $600 deposit and also another $250 in bonus money, so $850AUD in total to play with.
