Might the first association for the Sky brand in the United Kingdom isn’t online casino, but the Sky Casino is definitely fostering a reputation as one of the most popular online casino sites in the country and beyond. In addition to the multiple TV programmes and services, Sky also owns an online Casino, a Bingo website, a Poker, as well as few other gaming related web services. The casino is powered by Playtech and it is available both on iOS and Android mobile devices.
£60 Welcome Bonus
If you’re not already a member of Sky Casino, and you haven’t already registered and opened an account, perhaps the operator’s Welcome Bonus offer will convince you. In addition to the offer available to all new players, Sky Casino also offers a range of other bonuses and promotions.
As soon as you register at Sky Casino and wager at least £10, you will become eligible for a £60 bonus on your first deposit. That is six times the deposit amount, which is quite impressive, considering that most other online casinos offer a bonus either equal or twice as large as the deposited amount. Claiming the bonus amount is pretty simple.
How to Claim
- Register an account at Sky Casino.
- Deposit at least £10.
- A bonus message will be prompted and you’ll need to opt in.
- £60 will be credited to your account.
As usual, the offer comes under certain conditions, which players have to match if they want to be able to claim and use the bonus amount.
Terms and Conditions
First and foremost, as it was mentioned, the offer is only offered to players who don’t have an account at Sky Casino. If a player had an account, then closed it down, then opened it again, he/she won’t be able to claim the bonus.
Furthermore, players who already have a Sky betting or gaming account and are registered at another Sky website, are also considered to be existing customers and cannot claim the bonus. Also, there is a limit of one bonus per family, household, address, email address and IP address. Which means that if someone in your household has already claimed the bonus, you won’t be able to claim it. If you live in Northern Ireland, you will only be able to claim the bonus via phone and you will be required to provide a proof of identification.
Casinos require players who claim bonuses to fulfil certain wagering requirements and Sky Casino is no exception. The wagering requirement for this bonus is 50 times the bonus amount. And since the bonus amount is fixed we can easily calculate the amount which players are required to wager. £60 times 50 is £3,000. Players have 30 days to complete the wagering requirement, otherwise the bonus amount and all the bonus-related winnings will be forfeited.
Not all games contribute towards the wagering requirement equally. But the things at Sky Casino are pretty simple, all slot games contribute fully, whereas table games and card games contribute 20%. So, if you are wagering on slots, your wagers will be counted towards the wagering requirement pound for pound. Wagering £10 would result in a £10 contribution towards the wagering requirements. Whereas, wagering £10 on Roulette, Blackjack or other table or card games will only contribute £2 towards the wagering requirement.
In order to ensure fair gaming and to prevent any attempt to manipulate or abuse the bonus, Sky Casino has laid out a set of rules that every players has to obey if they wish to keep their bonus.
- Players are not allowed to wager more than 30% of the full bonus amount in one round. In this case that equals £20. So, no wager above £20 will be allowed until the wagering requirement is met.
- Also, it is not allowed to wager more than £15 bonus money on one spin on a slot game.
- Betting in a way that minimises or eliminates the risk of losing, like betting on both odds and even on Roulette is not permitted.
- It is also not acceptable to use one type of games to build your balance and then switch to other games in order to complete the wagering requirement.
These rules are not exhaustive, all players will be audited in the period until they complete the wagering requirements and Sky Casino reserves the right to cancel and void the bonus offer if it is concluded that the player is not playing in good faith and is abusing the bonus.
Second Deposit Bonus up to £250
In addition to the bonus which is awarded to players who deposit for the first time, Sky also rewards second time depositors with a 100% match bonus up to £250. Players need to accept the bonus as soon as they make their second deposit and the amount will be credited to their accounts immediately. The minimum deposit for this bonus is £20.
The wagering requirement is also x30, but here the deposit and the bonus amount are calculated. Which means that if a player receives the full bonus amount of £250 with a deposit in the equal amount, then he/she would have to wager an amount 30 times £500, which is £15,000. The game contribution is the same, slots 100%, table and card games 20% and the bonus is also active 30 days. The same rules and restrictions apply.
Other Bonuses and Promotions
Existing players can also benefit from a range of other bonuses and promotions that are available at Sky Casino. Some of these promotions are active only for a limited amount of time, whereas other are available longer. Regular players who wager significant amounts of money will receive extra benefits as they climb up the levels in the Players Club.
The Players Club is the name of Sky Casino’s Loyalty Program. It has 4 regular levels and a Priority Level. Every player starts at Level 1 as soon as they register an account. Every player who wagers £10 at the casino earns 1 point. The points can later be redeemed for cash and the conversion rate depends on the level that the player has at the Players Club. Level 1 players can exchange 1,000 points for £10, whereas Level 2 players exchange 900 points for £10. Level 3 players can convert 850 and Level 4 players 800 points for £10.
In addition to improved conversion rates, players with a higher Players Club level can also expect higher wagering limits, deposit match bonuses and instant cash bonuses. Advancing through the first four levels is automatic, with a total of 5,000 points you will reach Level 2, with 20,000 Level 3 and if you collect 50,000 you will be at Level 4. The Priority Level is invitation only. If you qualify for it, the casino will contact you.
Limited Time Promotions
Sky Casino offers plenty other promotions which are active usually for a week, or a full amount. It can be a deposit bonus, a cashback bonus for amounts wagered on particular games, or free spins. The aim is to give players a choice and to cater to the needs of all players. For example, a player whose favourite game is Roulette would really benefit from a Roulette-related bonus, whereas a player who enjoy playing Blackjack would wait until there is a Blackjack bonus she/he can take advantage of.
