All Free Spins And Rewards To Be Banned In The UK?

Anyone heard anything about this?

Ive received a few emails from casinos telling me to use up free spins or rewards or they are getting deleted from my account.

In the chats of some big streamers some people have said it will take affect in May.

This has to be seriously bad for UK affiliates because surely it will be deposit bonuses next.

Ive not heard a thing about this but I think the Casinos will find a way around it hopefully in the form of loyalty schemes and such.

I did think it would not be long before they did something like this. I does not surprise me.

Maybe the casinos will increase the RTP to compensate (in my dreams).

Ive not heard anything either. I have noticed a couple of the betting sites , that used to give free spins very regularly, haven't given a thing in the last couple of months or more now. So whether theres anything in that i dunno, could be just coincidence.

Heard nothing official about this.

It's possible it could refer, or will refer, to no-deposit offers as these are there to tempt new gamblers, as opposed to rewards for players already gambling or playing at a particular casinos. Bonuses are generally only given AFTER a player has made a conscious decision to join and play at a casino.

Then again, who knows what is on the Bullshit Bingo cards at the UKGC?

This is also my understanding of things too.

"Click here and get £10 for nothing and start spinning right away" is the sort of thing they'll be looking in to and removing the 'dangerous' ones if not all of things along these lines.

"Here are 10 FS on Starburst for your £100 deposit this week, thanks for remaining loyal to us" will be pretty safe from UKGC interference IMO.

If it get's rid of that skyvegas prize machine clickbait promo, I'll be quite pleased. Ever since they introduced it, deposit bonuses have totally disappeared, 5 x 10p spins on a blueprint is as much use to me as a boot in the flute, to copy one of the bandit's sayings.

:laugh: I did cut out a bit of that post, something along the lines of 'unless you're a jammy bugger who can take the 36p won and build a 2k balance' ...ah I know it does happen, I just haven't got the patience these days to try and build from a few pence, it can take you an hour to get up to a tenner and then lose it in mins :(

They use to do some decent deposit bonuses, kind of a nice 1 a fortnight surprise it was, to get a skyvegas offer amongst your emails.

Edit: Too often I found myself playing the free spin on the machine, winning nowt or a 10p scratchcard and then getting involved with deposits when I hadn't intended to, which must be their plan, to give out the smallest value promo in return for thousands of gamblers logging in everyday.
