Casino Bonus Terminology

The below terminology is mostly logical and consistent across most online casinos but to avoid any confusion on what each of the terms mean, we’ve clarified each term below. When we send a bonus campaign out, the below terms will usually accompany the email. These terms will also be found on the EmuCasino promotional calendar.

  • Activation: is what the requirements needed to be able to qualify and activate a specific bonus.

  • Turnover: is the required amount of bets that are needed on the deposited/bonus amount for you to be able to cash out a bonus. An example of this is: With a bonus with a ‘100% match deposit up to 100 with 30 X turnover’ means 100 X 30 = 3,000. This is the total amount that is needed to be wagered to be able to cash out bonus money and associated winnings.

  • Period of validity: is the number of days you have to clear the bonus. Any un-cleared bonuses and winnings originating from the bonus play, will expire after the set number of days have passed. The bonus must be used before the expiry date.
