Big Honking List of Poker and Casino Bonuses

Casino bonuses listed first, then poker bonuses.

The Big Honking List of Casino Bonuses



I've listed these roughly in order of potential value, as far as the good casino bonuses out there that have favorable terms. But be aware that some are cashable bonuses that blackjack is allowed, some are sticky bonuses, some are video poker bonuses, and some are a mixture of all of the above. With the general info for each group, I've linked to the appropriate strategy guide for playing the bonuses. For the sake of simplicity, they're listed by either their name or owner or by the way they're promoted, as many of the casinos within a group share the same owners and terms, etc.

Party Gaming: Cashable bonuses where blackjack is allowed. Great bonuses, should be the first ones you do. Use the strategy in the Beginner’s Guide to Casino Bonuses to clear the bonus at blackjack.

  • StarLuck: up to $100 free

  • PlanetLuck: up to $100 free

  • AceClub: up to $300 free (You might save this one until your bankroll is bigger to take full advantage of the 30% up to $300 bonus)



  • Bet365: Great cashable bonus, blackjack is allowed. Use the strategy in the Beginner’s Guide to Casino Bonuses to clear the bonus at blackjack.

  • Bet365: up to $200 free




  • Casino on Net: Great cashable bonus, try to do it by depositing with a service other than Neteller to take advantage of lower WR. Use the strategy in the Beginner’s Guide to Casino Bonuses to clear the bonus at blackjack.

  • Casino-On-Net: up to $200 free



  • 32Red: 32Red's signup bonus is 100% up to $100 (you can also do it in pounds) but it's a slots-only signup bonus. Not great, obviously, but after that they offer nice monthly bonuses, which allow blackjack and are cashable. So this one isn't bad to do as far as gambling it up with the signup bonus at slots but then grinding out the monthly bonuses on autoplay blackjack.

  • 32Red Casino: up to $100 signup bonus plus $50 monthly match bonus



  • BeTheDealer: Good cashable blackjack bonus, with a slightly high WR. Also sort of fun and unique, as you have the option to playas the dealer/house on assorted games.

  • BeTheDealer



    SportingBet: The following casinos are all owned by SportingBet and all offer good cashable signup bonuses and reloads that can be cleared with blackjack. Be careful about doing them all at once, though, as they sometimes close your account if you have signup at multiple casinos and refund your deposit with little to no warning. Use the strategy in the Beginner’s Guide to Casino Bonuses to clear the bonus at blackjack.

  • SportingbetUSA.com: $50 free for downloading casino

  • PlayersOnly.com: $50 free for downloading casino

  • Superbook.com: up to $30 free for downloading casino

  • Aces.com: $50 free for downloading casino

  • Super Vegas Casino: get up to $100 free




  • Cryptos: The following casinos are all Crytpologic licensees and almost all offer great signup bonuses as well as great monthly bonuses. You’ll have to wait for a PIN to be snail mailed to you before you can cash out, but these are all great cashable bonuses that can be cleared with blackjack. Many of them also offer really good poker bonuses, if you’re a poker player as well. Use the strategy in the Beginner’s Guide to Casino Bonuses to clear the bonus at blackjack.

  • InterCasino: up to $90 every month

You can still play these like a sticky, though, or even a semi-sticky, if you grind out a lot of WR trying to sticky it up and can then clear the remaining WR profitably.

    Pigg's: 40% up to $400

  • USA Casino: up to $600 free

  • Monaco Gold

  • Golden Reef Casino: up to $100 free

    Playtech Stickies: The next group all use Playtech software and all offer good sticky bonuses. Be sure to check the terms, as some allow blackjack and others require that you clear the WR at video poker. Use the Strategy for Sticky Casino Bonuses for the ones that allow blackjack and the Strategy for Video Poker Bonusesfor the others.

  • English Harbour Group: This group has some nice cashable bonuses, but blackjack isn’t allowed to clear the bonuses. Check the terms and conditions for currently allowed games, the best of which at the moment is single coin video poker, which must be played manually. Use the Strategy for Video Poker Bonuses.

  • Caribbean Gold

  • Silver Dollar

  • English Harbour

  • Super Slots

  • All Poker Casino

  • Millionaire Casino



  • Wager Junction: These all offer good bonuses that can be cleared at blackjack (be sure to select the bonus coupon that allows blackjack, as some coupons are slots only). The WR is high for the bonuses that allow blackjack, but still +EV. Use the strategy in the Beginner’s Guide to Casino Bonuses to clear the bonus at blackjack.

  • Geisha Lounge: get up to $100 free

  • Grand Aces: get up to $100 free

  • King Solomon's: get up to $100 free



  • Trident Share: These also use a version of the EZ bonus system, although BJ counts more here, so it makes these slightly less sticky. You should still play them as stickies initially, but you have a better chance of getting close to clearing the WR by trying to sticky your balance up, at which point you can profitably grind out the rest of the WR instead of cashing out and sacrificing the bonus.

  • King Neptune's Casino: 100% up to $200

  • Trident Lounge Casino: 100% up to $200

  • Vegas USA Casino: up to $50 free




  • Sports Interaction: This one is a cashable bonus that allows blackjack (be sure to check the terms, though, to see if blackjack is still allowed.)

  • Sports Interaction Casino: get up to $125 free



    Vegas Partner: These all use the EZ bonus now and should be played like stickies.

    All Slots Casino
    All Jackpots
    First Web Casino
    Wild Jack Casino
    Capital Casino


    RTG: You’ll have to check the terms on these, as offer bonuses that can be cleared at blackjack, some offer only slots only bonuses, some are cashable, some aren't, etc. One nice thing about RTG casinos is that the software is very fast, so clearing bonuses goes quickly, even at minimum bets.

    One note of warning is that some RTG casinos are notorious for taking forever to pay out withdrawals, as well as for offering misleading bonuses. If you do these, comb over the terms very carefully and don't be surprised if they drag their feet on cashouts, ask you to fax them copies of your ID, etc.

  • Bodog

  • Gold Key Casino

  • Vegas Frontier

  • Windows Casino

  • Cirrus Casino

  • CoolCat Casino

  • Palace of Chance

  • Casino Fortune: These offer nice sticky bonuses that allow blackjack, but with a twist. While you can’t cash out the bonus, it isn’t removed from your account when you withdrawal, as is the case with most stickies. This means that with a little luck, you can make some nice scores with these, as you can win, withdraw deposit plus profits, then still have the bonus left in your account to continue to play and win with, repeating the process. Use the Strategy for Sticky Casino Bonuses for these.

  • Casino Fortune: get up to $200 free on your first deposit

  • GoldGate Casino: get up to $200 free on your first deposit

  • Mapau: get up to $200 free on your first deposit

  • Sterling House Casino

  • Grand Banks Casino

  • Black Widow Casino

  • PlayGate Casino

  • Casino Onliner

  • Luck N’ Roll



  • BelleRock Gaming: These also use the EZ/ClearPlay bonus system, should be played like stickies, yada yada yada.

    Aces High
    The Gaming Club
    Home Casino
    Jackpot City<
    Lucky Nugget
    River Belle
    Showdown Casino


    Grand Prive Group: All of these use the new ez Bonus system. and should be played like sticky bonuses. While the bonus is cashable, if you try to clear the WR in a normal fashion, it's -EV, as BJ and video poker games require a very high WR. These can be +EV, though, if you play them like a sticky bonus, as you can cash out at any point and forfeit the bonus.

  • Casino Grand Bay: 100% up to $250

  • BellaVegas: 100% up to $250

  • 100% up to $250

    Grand Monaco Casino: 100% up to $150


    Roxy Group: EZ bonus, played like a sticky.


    Roxy Palace

    Vegas Splendido


    Vegas Affiliates: These have slightly odd terms, as you can only cashout at least the original amount purchased plus double the bonus, if you claim a bonus at any of these casinos. They also prohibit you from playing it like a sticky and doubling up by playing the following games: Roulette, Baccarat, Craps, Blackjack, Red Dog, Sic Bo, Video Poker, Table Poker, Casino War and all variations of these games. So basically you can only play slots here, and pray that you hit a big score to bump your balance up enough to cash out. Obviously not the best of terms, but for the sake of being comprehensive I'm listing these.

    Vegas7 Casino
    Colosseum Casino
    Vegas Slot Casino
    Vegas Country Casino
    Royal Plaza Casino
    Vegas Joker Casino
    Grand Hotel Casino

    Hi there, I was searching for information on the recent house of representatives request for an advisory opinion on the constitutionality of proposed casino legislation (re:Sandra Lanni) and I see how I found your site when I was searching for casino card game and casino card game related information, Please post at my blog if you feel you can add. Thanks for the read
    Kind regards
    Luke

    Yikes...Stay away from Be The Dealer. "slightly high" WR is actually 44X which is not worth your time. i was under the impression it was 22X (my oversight). I also do not trust the site. i know how this sounds..but trust me. For more than 3 years i have generated 50-100% of my income from poker (and poker bonuses) and recently from BJ bonuses. as soon as i started playing this site, i knew it was fishy. my money was locked up until i freed the bonus which was 44X away. i wrote out a script of exactly what would happen while freeing the bonus. i then watched it play out perfectly. which essentially was my first hand played being the all time high, and the last hand played (17 playing hours later) the all time low. i have requested documentation of the random number generator, but have been denied. i have a heavy math background, and like i said before play a lot of poker and blackjack. it is my strong opinion that Be The Dealer is not using a random number generator, but rather a predetermined system. the repetition of patterns was mathematically improbable, as was the success rates on doubles and splits. of course my sample size is only a bit over 6000 hands. im sure people will think i am being paranoid, but trust me on this..Be The Dealer was suspect all around, and definetely not worth the time for a cashable bonus. i strongly recomend to avoid the site.

    Heya,

    You might want to update the guide for litewoodscasino. The poker bonus is no longer 50 pounds, its 25 pounds.

    Same requirements to get it.
