Casino Terms: glossary of terminology and slang

Explanation of recurrent, typical terms in the casinos or generally in gambling slang language.

% bonus: it indicates by which percentage the bonus will increase the deposited capital.
Examples: on a 100$ deposit, a 100% bonus will double the deposit to 200$, one of 50% will add 50$ to 100 making them 150.

Bonus type: it indicates the type of bonus offered by the casino.
The no deposit bonus is that free bonus offered as a gift to new players, for which they don’t have to use any money of their own.
The sign-up bonus or welcome bonus is that bonus offered by the casino only to the new players who make their first deposit.

Cashable Bonus: a bonus that, once the wagering requirements are met, may be cashed along with the deposit.
For example: I deposit 200$ in Casino On Net and am given 200 bonus more. After playing it all for 20 times (20x) as the terms wants, I finish with 470$.

Deposit for max bonus: the personal capital deposit that must be done in order to obtain the maximum bonus possible.

Max bonus: translated into dollar terms, the maximum each bonus can offer.

Uncashable Bonus: a bonus that cannot be cashed, not even if the wagering requirements will be met.
Example: I deposit 100$ in Del Rio Casino and am given 200 bonus more. After playing it all for 30 times (30x) as the terms want, I finish with 450$. From this money, 100$ will be my initial deposit, 200$ the bonus and 150$ the winning. Because the bonus is “uncashable”, the 200$ bonus will have to be subtracted from the total 450$, leaving me with a cashable sum corresponding to 350$.

Wagering requirements (WR) or Playthrough (PT): the number of times the bonus, the deposit or the bonus and the deposit, depending on the casino terms, must be played.
The wagering requirements usually change depending on the game you decide to play.
