My mission here is to see how promising the Yukon Gold bonus potential is. The goldrush theme is obvious from the moment I land on the website. I’m hoping the promotions are just as exciting as I’d expect.
The site displays the welcome deal on the upper portion of the landing page. I discovered plenty more beyond that though, so hop into your spacesuit for a journey around this corner of the casino universe. As you’ll see, their homepage is merely an introduction to the good stuff you can dig up elsewhere.
I always look for a no deposit bonus or welcome bonus when exploring the bonus possibilities at any online casino. While there is no Yukon Gold no deposit bonus available, I did see a Yukon Gold new customer bonus near the top of the homepage. Many casinos, including 888 for example, like to welcome new customers with a decent bonus, and I think the Yukon Gold bonus does stand up when compared to deals I’ve found elsewhere. It’s an unusual one too, offering 125 chances to scoop a jackpot. I’ve never seen anything similar before, so they’re clearly marking out their corner of the universe when attracting the attention of new members.
Scrolling a little further down the homepage, I spotted more details about the offer. You’ll receive 125 opportunities to try for these massive jackpots when you deposit $10 Canadian dollars to open your account there. The site then lists the three steps you must complete to get those chances. These work out as follows. Fall down on any of these and you’ll miss out on the bonus, so make sure you tick all the boxes.
Of course, you must be a new member and not already have an account with Yukon Gold. I would include this information with any review in our Academy (Gym). According to the site itself, this shouldn’t take you any longer than 30 seconds. Once you select the PLAY NOW option at the top of the site, it takes just a few moments for the account registration form to load. This needs your info and preloads your location and currency, which is cool.
The casino has several familiar deposit methods available, so you can just choose one of those and make sure your deposit is worth $10 or more to qualify for your Yukon Gold bonus. Anything less won’t trigger the offer. You need to deposit it in one hit too; two or more separate deposits won’t trigger it either. This is common enough for bonuses though.
Once you’ve signed up and deposited, you’re ready to grab those 125 chances to see if you can net a jackpot. There are lots of progressive jackpot games listed at the casino. You can visit the casino games page to find out more about them, and this bonus works well as an introduction to those possibilities. I found a list of jackpot progressive games listed there, each with a live jackpot amount ticking up through the numbers. I was delighted to see the famous Mega Moolah among them, with its jackpot often soaring into millions of dollars. As welcome bonuses go, this free betting bonus for Yukon Gold is unusual, quirky, and pretty appealing. Keep reading my Yukon Gold review, though, because there are some terms you must know before you move on with this deal.
If you’ve read some other PlayersBest lab reviews, you’ll know that reading the terms and conditions for all casino bonuses is a vital part of knowing where you’re heading. While some bonuses have separate terms and conditions to read, that’s not the case with this one. Instead, there is a link to the full Ts and Cs on the dedicated page for the welcome deal. You can easily reach this page by selecting the signup bonus option inside the main menu. This is reached via the menu icon if you’re on a mobile device or smaller screen or via the menu spread across the top of the screen if you’re on a regular computer. There is no separate Yukon Gold mobile bonus here.
I explored every inch of the long, long page of Yukon Gold bonus terms to give you some insight into them here. Kudos to them for making them readable though. The full PlayersBest guide (Gym) to this casino will cover the need to read the entire page. However, the focus here is on the bonus, and for that you can head to section 11, headed Signup Offer – Terms and Conditions. Once I reached that part of the page, I could read through the terms to see exactly what the site offered. Registering as a new player was an obvious start to those, but I found other terms for this Yukon Gold casino bonus that are worth sharing with you here.
Most importantly, I discovered that the site credits all bonus monies to you as bonus funds rather than in cash funds. This means you won’t be able to withdraw those funds, so make sure you understand this before accepting the offer. This is also known as a sticky bonus as it sticks with the casino rather than being withdrawable. I should mention that in point 12 of the terms and conditions (the Bonus and Cash Account section) it clearly states that you have a cash balance and a bonus balance, so the two are always kept apart from each other. This makes it easy for you to work out where you stand, too.
While the casino has lots of jackpot games to play, I discovered that just one of those games is eligible to play for your 125 chances at getting a jackpot. This isn’t written anywhere until you reach the terms and conditions, which shows how important it is to go that far. The deal gives you 125 free spins to use on the slot game Immortal Creatures. Each spin is worth a 30-cent wager. Remember that you must deposit $10 Canadian dollars to get those spins. It means the total bonus amounts to $37.50 in free spins – not a bad deal at all. You must adhere to their wagering requirements to qualify for the deal and meet its terms too. These aren’t stated in that part of the terms and conditions; I only found them when reading through the Bonus and Cash Account part.
That’s where I found the 200x playthrough requirement written down. That’s high for a playthrough; many casinos have far lower playthrough multiples than that. You can read other Gym entries where casino bonuses have been put through the demanding paces of a PlayersBest review to compare these deals. To round off this portion of my review, I want to say that the offer must be claimed within seven days of signing up, otherwise you would forfeit it. That’s common enough too. If you meet the wagering requirements, the amount sitting in your bonus balance will then convert into cash.
I’ve covered the Yukon Gold bonus terms in detail above, but I’ve retained a few bits of info relating to the second deposit bonus up for grabs at this casino. Yes, you can guide your spaceship to another excellent bonus once you’ve gone through the first one. This is another sign of a decent casino. I have found that the best sports betting bonus and casino bonuses always come from sites that give you a rounded selection of games, services, and other features.
So, let’s speed toward that second deposit bonus to see how promising it might be. The bonus page lists this offer below the first deposit bonus and those 125 chances for a jackpot prize. The second deposit offers a 100% match bonus deal instead, so this is far more familiar to me. I’ve seen many other casinos offer the 100% match deal, meaning that I can get the same amount in bonus funds according to the amount I deposit.
At Yukon Gold, the most you can claim from this bonus is $150 Canadian dollars. You can deposit less and get that amount matched instead, but if you deposit more than $150 for your second deposit, you’d only receive the maximum $150 as per the terms and conditions.
While there is no sportsbook bonus comparison for me to make here, I think the free betting bonus for Yukon Gold and the subsequent match bonus both stand up well against the competition.
Another important part of fulfilling the wagering requirements at this casino is looking at the percentage each game selection contributes toward the overall playthrough requirements. Fortunately, the casino has listed them further down section 12 of the main terms and conditions. This listed the slots and parlor games as the only ones that met 100% of the requirements. Playing table poker, Sic Bo games, and casino War would only meet 50%. Most blackjack games with a few exceptions (classic, baccarat, and craps) came in at 10%, while video poker netted just 2%. I’d suggest checking this list in full before you begin playthrough, as it can make a huge difference to how quickly you would meet those terms. I think the slots is the safest area to stick with while using up your bonus in these early stages of exploring the alien territory at Yukon Gold.
Another way to get some rewards from Yukon Gold is by joining their loyalty program. The official name for this is the Casino Rewards VIP Loyalty Program. You’ll receive automatic membership of the program when you make your first real wager at the casino. The casino doesn’t have a dedicated page for the loyalty program, but you can read more about it by going to the FAQ section. This has a section headed Loyalty Program – the fourth one down the page. It only has four questions, but they answered the queries I had about it and any potential perks it could bring with it.
With six levels to attain, you’ve got a lot of bonus potential rolled into this area of the site. Whenever you make real wagers, you earn points. One hundred of those points convert into a dollar. It looks like those are given in chips. However, having read the information in the FAQ section, I think the promotions and bonuses sound better still. They mention bigger bonuses and the chance to take advantage of more promotions, so this looks like the way to gain some more bonus deals at Yukon Gold. It’s something to look forward to once you’ve played through your free betting bonus at Yukon Gold, for sure.
Absolutely – and you’ll be able to read about them both by going through the signup bonus link in the menu at the top of any page of the casino. If you want to employ a betting strategy for any online casino, I’d suggest checking the availability for bonuses when you land on the site. Navigating your way through Yukon Gold is easy enough, and those initial two bonuses have plenty to offer. I didn’t see a Yukon Gold bonus for existing customers (unless the second deposit bonus qualifies for that). However, you’ve always got the chance to receive emails containing bonuses once you’ve joined.
Beyond that, I think the opportunities that lie within the loyalty program are the best ones you’re going to see at Yukon Gold. I found no evidence that you’d need a Yukon Gold bonus code at any point, but you can look for details of those whenever you see promotions at the casino. Don’t cool your rockets – soar toward that Yukon Gold deal today.
