Before making any deposits at gambling websites or attempting "free" play, read first their terms and conditions statements. This should reveal any restrictions about withdrawals, and it may also detail bonus “play through” restrictions. If the bonus rules are not clearly spelled out, look for rules right in any bonus offer from online gambling sites before playing. This helps avoid disappointments when a player attempts to make a withdrawal but cannot do so because they have not played through enough points.
Play through refers to a specified multiplier factor. For example, a requirement of 15x play through means that for that free money amount, $15 for this example, the player must play $15 fifteen times over before any withdrawal of winnings can be made. This amounts to the equivalent of playing through $225 before attempting any withdrawal off that original bonus money. With luck, the player will be able to use that free $15 and play it over enough times to reach the $225 mark and beyond. It can be a little confusing for a beginner.
Until you understand all terms of play at gambling websites, do not deposit money and try to play. Use the free money and try to achieve the play through goal to go on to win real money you can withdraw and keep.
