Bonuses and Promotions
Whether it’s matched deposits for signing up, free spins for loyal players, or perks and prizes as part of a VIP scheme, there’s a great range of bonuses and promotions on offer to players at Trustly casinos in the UK.
While certain payment methods like e-wallets often find themselves excluded in promotion T&Cs, you’re unlikely to run into that issue with Trustly as it’s rarely ineligible when claiming bonus offers. As always, be sure to check the casino’s terms and conditions to be sure you won’t miss out, but it’s unlikely you’ll encounter any issues when you deposit with Trustly.
Without a doubt, matched deposits are the most common welcome offer you’ll find at a Trustly casino. If you’ve not claimed one before, the premise is simple: players make a qualifying deposit of a minimum amount, and the casino literally ‘matches’ the deposit by a certain percentage and up to a certain amount. This bonus credit can be used to play games at the site at no cost to you, but you’ll still have a chance to win some real money.
Let’s say a Trustly casino offers new players a 100% matched deposit bonus up to £200 when they deposit at least £10. You’ll essentially double your money — so if you deposit the full amount of £200, the casino grants you an extra £200 in bonus credit and you’ll have a total of £400 to play with. Sometimes these offers are spread over multiple deposits and the match percentage might vary, such as 50% up to £100 on your second and third deposits.
With any offer, it’s essential you read the T&Cs beforehand. For matched deposits, you’ll want to take note of the wagering requirements in particular, as you’ll need to meet these before any resulting winnings can be withdrawn. Typical requirements run from around 20x to as high as 70x and could be calculated based on just the bonus, or the bonus and deposit combined. Take note of any time limits too — you’ll need to use the bonus and meet the wagering requirements within this window or any winnings and remaining bonus credit will be forfeited.
Many Trustly casinos include free spins in their bonus offers, often in tandem with a matched deposit but sometimes on their own too. These bonuses are exclusively for use on the online slots library at a site, and they’re perfect for trying out some new games without risking your own hard-earned cash.
You’ll usually have to make a qualifying deposit to unlock the free spins — although no deposit free spins are available too — and they can usually only be used on one or two selected slots. A typical offer might be 50 free spins on Book of Dead when you deposit at least £10. The free spins are set at a certain value as well, which is usually the minimum bet, so around £0.10–£0.20 per spin.
Wagering requirements apply a little differently to free spins. They’re usually applied to any resulting winnings rather than the bonus itself. Say you won £5 on free spins with 10x wagering requirements, you’d then have to wager £50 of your own cash (10 x £5) in order to make a withdrawal. Free spins winnings are usually subject to caps too, which could range from just a few quid up to £100 or more. Be sure you understand these restrictions before you play — it would be pretty disappointing to snag the jackpot only to find your winnings are substantially limited!
Once you’ve spent some time at a Trustly casino and played through your welcome offer, there’s a good chance the site will try to keep you coming back with a reload bonus. These promotions are much like sign-up offers, but they’re offered to existing players and are designed to ‘reload’ your balance.
While often not as large as new player bonuses, reload bonuses can still provide a valuable bankroll boost. They mainly come as matched deposits or free spins; as such, you’ll want to watch out for the same terms and conditions as with a welcome offer. At some Trustly casinos, you’ll need to make regular deposits in order to be offered a reload bonus.
Sometimes it’s worth signing up to the casino’s newsletter, as reload bonus codes are occasionally handed out to players via email. You should also opt into any loyalty schemes offered by the site once you’ve opened your account — this is the only way to unlock a reload bonus at some online casinos.
Low Wagering Bonuses
A low wagering bonus offers great value to players on account of its low wagering requirements, meaning you’re more likely to see a real money payout from the bonus. These bonuses come in both matched deposit and free spins flavours, so there’s something to suit everyone.
Low wagering entails anything around 20x and under — although at the higher end of that, it’s still going to be difficult to convert the bonus, so we suggest using it as a risk-free way to familiarise yourself with the site and its games.
At the lower end, you could see wagering requirements of around 5x or even none at all. Bonuses with no wagering requirements mean any winnings are yours to keep, so they’re a certain favourite among casino fans.
That said, a low wagering bonus isn’t always the most player-friendly option. As a cash withdrawal is within closer reach, the casino will likely limit the value of the bonus in other ways. For example, limits on your winnings might be lower than with bonuses with higher wagering requirements — although if you ask us, even a small cash profit is a great result from any bonus.
Another less common promotion is a prize draw. These competitions are usually open to both new and existing customers at Trustly casinos, or sometimes reserved for the site’s VIP members. Their format can vary, but generally speaking, players will be entered into the draw once they fulfil the entry requirements — which could be as simple as opting in or making a deposit during the competition window.
One common setup is a ticket-based draw where players earn entries either through playing games at a site or wagering a certain amount. For example, you might get one draw ticket for every £10 wagered on slots and table games during the competition period. Once the competition ends, the prizes are drawn — those with more tickets will have a greater chance of winning, just like a regular raffle.
There’s a wide spectrum of prizes up for grabs, from free spins and loyalty points all the way to large amounts of cash and even real-life rewards such as luxury trips and tech gadgets. These draws can add another layer of excitement to your time at a Trustly casino, especially if you can take part without any additional cost to yourself.
Slots tournaments are another promotion similar in concept to prize draws. Instead of receiving entries when you play games on the site, you’ll earn points based on how much you win on eligible slots during the competition. Climb to the top of the leaderboards and you could walk away with a prize!
Certain online casinos might feature a bonus wheel which is used to grant prizes to players, like free spins, bonus credit, or even cash rewards. Spinning the bonus wheel could be part of your welcome offer or an ongoing reward for playing at the site, with wheel spins given each time you top up your casino wallet.
All you have to do is spin the wheel using your allotted tokens and wait to see where it lands — hopefully you’ll walk away with something! If you net free spins or bonus funds, you’ll be able to play games at the site on the casino’s dime, while cash prizes can often be withdrawn instantly.
