Let's say you deposit $100 and redeem a coupon for a 100% match 30x wr slots only.

So you have $200 to start with and 30x wagering to complete. Let's also make it simple and say that the slots at the casino have a 95% payback percentage.

Is there an equation you can use to determine the house edge on this bonus(how much the wagering requirements add to a house edge...)?

Or is it simply impossible.....:what:


I am sure there is an equation the casinos use because if you look at some rival bonuses they determine the wagering requirements to a 0.XX point.

Actually I managed to answer my own question within a few minutes of searching google.

eg:

$5000 in wagering with a house edge of 0.5% will result in an expected loss of $25

Yes, it's a pretty simple calculation, and it what I use to rate bonuses from best to worst on my websites.
As you can imagine, very few favour the player, and some are downright CRIMINAL! :mad:

By the way, in your calculation you said an edge of 0.5% - that's wrong for slots.
If the slot has a 95% RTP, it's edge is 5%
So $5000 in wagering with a house edge of 5% will result in an expected loss of $250

However this number says nothing about who has the edge, since you will only actually have to meet the wagering requirement when you are winning. A lot of the time you will bust out way ahead of WR and save lots of wagering.
