The wagering requirements for bonuses are usually written in small print in the bonus terms page and make all the difference between a good and a bad offer. We collect this information and describe it in our analysis so that you can make a good choice when playing in a Casino.
The wagering requirements establish the amount you have to play for the bonus to be converted into real money.
For example, you may have to play a $10 bonus of $400 (40 times the wagering requirement) in order for it to be converted into cash that you can withdraw. So you have to keep betting and winning long enough otherwise you may not complete the wagering requirement before your bonus ends. This may not be easy, but playing with bonus requires players to be persistent.
The terms and conditions of the wagering requirements vary between different casinos. At worst, for example, a $50 deposit with a $50 bonus may require the player to spin the reels of a Slot until he hits $5,000 that has been wagered (50 times the wagering requirement for both bonus and deposit). In the best casinos, the same bonus will only require you to wager $1,750 (35 times and only the bonus amount).
Other bonus conditions are often defined in the maximum wagering bonus, the duration of the bonus and any other wagering requirement that differs between the various types of games. Frequently, in table games for example, they usually count only 10% of the wagering requirements compared to Slot machines when it comes to unlocking the bonus.
