How Online Mines Games Casinos Keep Making Money


Given that we now know that the casino will always win in the long run if we play their games, how do they get us to keep playing?


Free Online Slots

One way they do it is by making some of their games, such as slots, free to play. Now, you can't win money from these free-to-play games but the hope of the online casino is that you hit a "jackpot" on this game and think to yourself "man if only this was for real money", which then tempts you into playing slots with real money.


It's a lot easier to burn through fake money than it is real money, and it's quite common for players to not notice their losses when they're playing for fun and only think of the "jackpot" they won. By the time they start to play for real money, they quickly realize how many spins they had to get through before they got their jackpot.

Online Casino Bonuses

Another way casinos draw players in is by offering enticing bonuses. Offers such as bet $10 get $50 free, or wager $20 and get 100 free spins, that on the surface look too good to be true. Unfortunately, it often is.


While these bonuses seem appealing, there are terms and conditions that don't make them quite as profitable as they seem. They often have a "wagering requirement" attached to them, meaning you can't just deposit your $10 and withdraw $50 - you have to play through the "free" money they give you before you can take it. A lot of times these wagering requirements can even be as high as 40x or 100x your bonus!


Meaning that if you get your $50 free after betting $10, you're required to play through at least $2000 before that money is available to withdraw. Thanks to this incredibly high requirement, bonuses are powerful promotional tools that encourage patrons to spend money on their casino games.

Online Casino Affiliate Program

Affiliate programs work in a similar way to the bonus offers but instead of the casino running the promotions, they get players to do it for them. They will give the player a special offer on a bet or improved odds on a certain line and get them to encourage their followers to sign up to take advantage of it. One example is the Playamo affiliate program that pays its partners every 1st of the month.


The casino increases its revenue as it gets more players to sign up and the affiliate wins as they get a cut of the revenue the casino makes from the players that signed up. Even the players win to a degree as they get to take advantage of a special offer.
