You may have noticed a Microgaming standard term :

"Other practices of playing behaviour which may lead to the casino withholding cashins and/or confiscating all winnings include, but are not limited to, placing single bets whereby the wager consists of the majority of the total available balance and the bonus balance contributing to a significant portion of that balance. Should the casino deem that practices such as this have been utilized, the casino reserves the right to withhold any cashins and/or confiscate all winnings. "

Imagine you have only 1 bonus balance left and make a 0,60 spin. Do you think Casinos with this rule confiscate your winnings ?

Maybe the rule is just a bad expression and the Casino dont want the players bets more then 50 % of the total available balance after the deposit .


What do you think ?

I think this rule is in place to protect the casinos from "bonus abuse" because they are too inept to write proper T&Cs or use the software to prevent people placing bets they don't like.

No reputable casino would ever try to invoke this rule for a small bet like the one you mentioned.
But they possibly would if you deposited, placed all your deposit + bonus on one hand of Blackjack and won. If you lost the hand they would probably let you get away with breaking their T&Cs... :p

This is an age-old problem with many casinos, and one which I hope to see eliminated in my lifetime, preferably soon!

Yes thats pretty unfair . It would be a good idea to change the table limits for the times a bonus is used .
