Slots Comps and Sign Up Bonuses

Slot Comps and Bonuses
by Jason Green of

Playing slots can be a lot of fun, as well as profitable, both at land-based casinos and online casinos. If you want to be successful when playing slots you have to be a little lucky, as with all casino games, luck is the name of the game as there are two facts in this type of gambling:

– The casino is going to hold their percentage to guarantee a profit.

– There are going to be some winners during this period who are going to hit some jackpots.

But you can increase your chances of winning if you look at a couple of factors that have nothing to do with the game itself. These things are comps and casino bonuses.

Comps and bonuses are casino offered promotions that they give out to influence you to play slots at their casino instead of somewhere else. Comps can be things such as free food, free hotel stays, or free shows. Considering that casinos online cannot offer these things they offer free money that they will add to your account. Internet casino comps can also be in the form of prizes, travel, etc. These extra bonuses can be a counterbalance to the negative expectation that comes with playing slots.


You may be able to earn both slot bonuses and comps depending on how much time you spend playing slots at the casino. When you play slots at a land-based casino you will receive a players card that will calculate how much time you spend playing slots at the casino that issues you the card. Many casinos won’t tell you about this card, you need to go up to the desk to ask for it.

When playing slots at online casinos the website will let you know how much money you need to spend playing slots before your bonus is released to you. It is very important that you have a solid money management strategy, so you can have enough money in order to get your bonus. If you do not release your casino bonus within a set time period it can expire and you will lose that bonus. There are also casinos that will give you the bonus up front, but require a certain amount of rollover (play) and a time requirement that you must play for (usually in days, weeks or months) before your eligible to make a withdrawal.

Also, in a land based casino you do not want to play over the limit that you have set and be out after a only a few spins before finding out the comps that you may have earned. Whenever you play slots you should keep in mind both bonuses and comps and use them to your advantage.

Money Management

When you play slots money management is very important. Never bet with money that you cannot afford to lose. Come up with a set limit of how much money you want to gamble with and if hit that limit you should quit. When playing slots online, come up with a limit and only deposit that amount of money to your online casino account to avoid getting yourself in trouble. Gambling is supposed to be fun. Tapping into your money reserved for bills is dangerous and can open a can of worms that you don’t want any part of.
