Bonus Wagering Requirements - what an eye opener!

I very, very rarely ever take any deposit bonuses, simply because the wagering requirements are usually so extraordinarily high in terms of achievability that they are not attractive. I did once take one on and actually beat the wagering requirements and made a very nice cashout but that was purely down to luck and a very, very big single win. However I did take on a 100% bonus at casumo last night and deposited £50 with the intention of getting maybe an hour or 2 of low rolling fun in, I was under no illusion of being able to make a withdrawal. I did not even bother to look at the wagering as I had no expectation that I would meet it. Anyway after what has been several hours of play I decided to look at what the wagering actually was. I am amazed to find that it is £3000 for my £50 deposit bonus! I am even more amazed that I have actually achieved that and still have a balance over £400! The big eye opener for me was just how easily that £3000 that I have played through could so easily have been my own money to start with and how quickly it would have disappeared!

You do realise that at Casumo, you can always withdraw a percentage of your balance at any time, and don't necessarily have to complete the wagering.
With a 100% bonus you'd be able to withdraw half your balance at any time, should you get a really big hit

Yeah Casumo bonuses are probably the best around. BetAT/Slotty are pretty good in being able to withdraw at any point and forfeit the bonus (provided you haven't touched it), and I'm sure there are more casinos like that (VideoSlots?).
Royal Panda's system is horrific - even if you use your Loyalty Points to buy a bonus you still have to deposit money to wager it, and once the real money is gone your wagering no longer counts :rolleyes:
Casumo have a real neat system - I've made nice withdrawals there while half way through wagering. It's one of the few casinos I'd happily take a bonus at if I'm in the mood.

Rp isnt horrific, with rp wagering begins automatically, and at a feasonable 35x.. Have a good run before losing the deposit and ull clear the wagering and keep the bonus along with any profit you acquire n the process. Done that a fair few times, also a fair few times having cleared half the wagering before dipping into bonus funds then hitting an ok hit which is easily withdrawable after a tiny deposit to complete the wager. I should add that i am a low roller though so never have to deposit huge in order to clear a wager where i know ceartin profit should be expected.
And ofc, you can withdraw the entire cash balance if you never use the bonus and hit big and want to run early.. or end up withdrawing the cash and bonus balance if u continue on your punt in such a situation and continue to do well.
I agree with the free spins from points business though, which i beleive as you said, the FS winnings would then need to be wagered with cash balance.


But id still rather play there than have to forfit half a huge win at casumo when i finally hit the darn win i'd been chasing for so long (though, i do always play high variance in order to find those heart pounding hits). No beef! Just sayin, each to his own n that.
Merry xmas! ;D

No, I did not know that! Well stone me, what a numpty I am. Hey-ho I have still been lucky enough to withdraw $250 from £50 deposit so all good there. I will bear this in mind for the future though. :thumbsup:
