How is a Reload Bonus different from a Match Bonus?
The Match Bonus is often offered to new players who decide to join a particular online casino for the first time. However, Reload Bonuses are usually offered to existing customers in order to boost their online casino gaming experience.
Match Bonuses are also either set at 100% or more, while Reload Bonuses usually offer 15% – 25% on top of your deposit amount. In other words, they are not as generous as the once off Welcome Bonuses, but they are often recurring. So in most cases, if you get a Reload Bonus once you can keep on getting it almost every time to make another deposit.
They can also be a one-time offer during a specific holiday (e.g. Christmas Reload Bonus), or they can be available weekly (or monthly) to the existing players. Casinos often come up with creative ways to reward Reload Bonuses, such as setting one day in a week as the ‘bonus day’ when you can claim this new deposit bonus.
Finally, the crucial difference is related to the payment method. Players can often claim Reload Bonuses only if they make a deposit using a particular payment option offered by the casino (e.g. Neteller, Skrill, etc.)
