    Hey all - I thought this might be of interest to many of the people here. In the process of updating our bonus rating system (long overdue) I've compiled a survey of the sign-up bonus wagering requirements at over 100 different decent operators. The resulting information gives a good idea of what the average wagering requirement for different game types are across the industry and should give you an idea of whether the wagering requirement of a bonus is better or worse than average. You can find the article here - You must register/login in order to see the link..

    Any feedback or corrections are always appreciated.

    Hi spintee,

    The rating system is intended to take account of all factors - % match, game selection, wagering requirement, bonus type, detrimental rules etc etc etc - but the article looks solely at wagering requirements. The rating system really boils down to my personal interpretation of what is good/bad when it comes to bonuses. The article is intended to be more objective and give the reader an overview of the range of different wagering requirements available by game type and also the average wagering requirement for each game type. This should allow players to make more educated decisions regarding whether a bonus is better or worse than the average that's on offer at least in terms of how much they have to wager.

    Shouldn't you be taking into account the D+B bonuses?

    Jetbull, for instance is 30x wagering, but on D+B, which is effectively 60x on a 100% SUB

    or list them as a multiple of your starting balance, based on, say, a $£€50 deposit.

    since 32Red's 320% SUB is 30xB, But it's effectively 22.89x your starting balance.

    That's from a quick glance at the slots section, since i rarely play other games

    Thanks brianmon,

    Yes - ALL bonuses should be expressed in xBonus format. That should already have been taken account of. Where there are any errors this actually falls to the operators all of whom were asked to review their reviews, taking special care on the bonus section, and inform us of any errors before we conducted our survey.

    All in all I'd say that the figures should be very close to accurate, with only a few of the programs not getting back to us. However the small number of errors that will likely be included are unlikely to make a significant different to the median figure.

    I'll update the Jetbull WR shortly - thanks again!

    Good job. Still you have to take those figures with a big grain of salt.

    Many of these casinos have what I call the MrGreen/V&J bonus system where only wagering your bonus will count towards wagering. So the effective wagering requirements are considerably higher which will most likely also affect the median more toward 50-60 times.

    It's a great basis for more statistical analysis though. Keep going. I enjoyed reading your article.

    Great thread The POGG. I will study this thread well :)

    Royal Panda recently finished a promo where you got free spins each day for a week. The winnings from the free spins required a 35x WR. However. before depositing you where able to wager those free spins up . If you win £2.00 from that days spins the wr would be £70. However,prior to depositing £10 in order to take up the offer your able to wager that £2.00 to say £70 or more. There is the potential to wager up so much prior to depositing that you can not lose. It was a fun promo and I recently wagered up from the FS's to needing a WR of only 3.5 before I deposited.
    That is what I call a bloody good deal

    Your right, Thats why I mentioned about the weighted games etc, But than you have the few sites that you can withdraw on if bonus has not been touched, But than you get a hand full of sites where you can withdraw but also wager counts from the off, To find a site that works that way is like rocking horse shit but I found one the other day, Betat used to but they now changed the rules to bonus wager only counts as soon as you hit the bonus

    Betat had the best bonus system around until they changed it. Unfortunately not many realized that.

    @ThePogg: You might consider to run a similar analysis sorted by bonus type.

    That's a fair and valid observation. It should also be remembered that there are a fair number on the list (primarily Playtech/RTGs) that use sticky bonuses as well, meaning that the bonus can never be withdrawn. The figures are intended as a guideline, to give a good idea, rather than to pinpoint with absolute accuracy as there are too many variations in bonus systems to make any standardisation of comparison possible.

    It will be impossible to be accurate, With the sticky bonus, weighted games, wager that counts, I not had a close look yet as had to go get Barnet chopped, and as the heat wave as finally hit I just open a cold one and gona meet a few mates,

    Nether the less its a good concept and it gives us a idea what sites are playing the game, As you said its just gives us an idea what sites are offering,I hope you do not stick the IPS sites up as even einstein could not work out there shit, Bonus wager change on a daily basis

    lol, if Einstein would struggle with IPS sites imagine Stephen Hawking trying to work out bell fruit casinos wagering requirements. Worse than coming to grips with his multiple dimension theories.
