When an online casino bonus is offered, it is offered only once to each player at the online casino. If there is an exception, this will be stated in the bonus Terms and Conditions. There are, however, always those people who try to beat the system, and will try to trick the online casino into giving them the same bonus two or more times. Because of this, the online casinos have made sure that they can catch bonus abusers, and stop them from trying to take additional bonuses when they are not eligible for them.
While online casinos offer bonuses to their players, they do not want players to take more than their fair share of bonuses because it eats into the online casino's profits. While online casinos will give players many bonuses, they still need to ensure that players only use bonuses that they are eligible for. Unfortunately for the majority of online casino players who are honest and do not try to steal additional bonuses that they are not eligible for, there have been certain steps put in place to help the online casinos to detect bonus abuse where they can. The online casinos have a number of rules that have been put in place to prevent bonus abuse.
Online casino players are only allowed to open one online casino account each. The online casinos only allow one person at each physical address to open an online casino account. Each bank account that is used to open an online casino account can only be linked to one online casino player. When a credit card is used, only one player can use the credit card to fund their online casino account. While this can cause some frustration in a situation where there is more than one person living at an address who would like to play in the same online casino, the online casino simply needs to make these rules in order to protect itself.
When it comes to bonus abuse, some players will register using a friend or relative's name or address in order to have multiple online casino accounts at the same online casino. Players may use different computers in order to appear to be playing as a different person, however, since the online casinos use a few methods to check for online casino abuse, there is a good chance of being caught out. Should a player win funds and then be found to have more than one online casino account, or to have broken the online casino rules in any way, they will not be paid out the winnings.
