One of the main benefits of gambling online is of course the casino bonus. Whether it is a sign-up bonus, a no-deposit bonus or a regular casino promotion, the attraction of gambling online is made all the more sweet with the addition of free money.
Today, casino bonuses play a major role in where players will actually choose to spend their money online. As a result, casinos are constantly offering increasingly competitive bonuses with even bigger rewards than before. While most casinos stick to the tried and tested, there have been a few promotions that were just plain weird.
Your Bill Sir
A few years ago there was an online casino that started offering a unique banking promotion. In the cashier section, players simply had to click on the accept button to activate their $300 bonus. The problem was that the playthrough requirements were so strangely worded that no one could figure out what was going on. When players failed to fulfill the requirements, the casino would actually mail them a bill for $300!
Win A BMW
Did you ever hear about the BMW promotion? A prominent online casino started a Win a BMW promotion where players were given the chance to win a BMW when they signed up. Multiple partners got involved with the advertising and the Internet was abuzz with the news. This was until someone actually won a BMW and it was delivered to them in a small cardboard box a few inches wide. The promotion turned out to be for a toy BMW, not a real one.
Go To Space
Then there was the casino promotion where you could win a trip to space. Players could win a real trip to outer space if they collected enough ‘stars’ by wagering on casino games. This competition, which closed in 2010, listed the players with the most stars. However, there is no mention of who actually won the trip to space, nor are there any selfies from space to prove that the winner took up their prize. Either way, it was a pretty original promotion.
The Crazy Christmas Bonus
Every once in a while, a really good casino bonus comes along. This is what happened a few years ago at Christmas. An online casino decided to run a Christmas promotion where players could qualify for up to 200% bonus cash on casino deposits. The requirements were so liberal that players could even use the bonus on blackjack. We are fairly confident players took full advantage of the casino promotion, and won as much back as possible!
