It had been ages since my last punt in an online casino and I realised I had no funds left in the casino account that I opened a couple of years ago. So I decided to start over and open a new account as there are so many great bonuses around at the moment. Compared with when I opened my first account, the bonuses have seem really generous. It must be due to the competition amongst casino sites nowadays.

As I enjoy playing roulette more than most games, I searched for a site that had a table games bonus. You have to watch out when choosing which bonus to go for, as some have quite stringent gaming restrictions on them For example, on some sites you’re only eligible to use bonus credit on slots games, which is fine if that’s what you enjoy playing, but for me, I’d always choose table games over the slots.

Anyway, I found just what I was looking for at 32Red – where they’ve got a great table games bonus on at the moment when you make your first deposit. And if you’re not sure whether you’d like the games on there, you don’t have to commit straightaway. You can play many of the games in practice play mode – which means you play with a virtual stack of coins. This is a great way to test out the quality of the games and decide whether it’s the site for you or not. Even then, you don’t need to put down your own cash immediately, as you can also get a no-deposit bonus which is where you get bonus credit just for signing up and registering a debit or credit card.

For newcomers to roulette or other casino games, this is a great way of dipping your toes in the water without taking any risks. You can place a few different bets and see how you get on. If you lose the bonus money, at least it’s not your own money that has been lost.

Some people might think it’s a good idea to go from site to site gathering the welcome bonuses. While there’s nothing to stop you doing this, it actually is more sensible to play at one site consistently. This is because casino generosity doesn’t stop with the welcome bonus. The more you play on a site, the more loyalty points you will accrue. Each site has its own system; some offer cash back every time you play, others give you loyalty points which can be exchanged when you have enough of them for more playing credit or for other chances to win – like in a prize draw.

There are plenty of games I like the look of at 32 Red so I’ll be staying where I am for a while, at least!
